Changes from 1st November 2020

Changes from November 1st - As with the first of every month in France certain changes are to be introduced including the price of gas, tobacco and a capping on bank charges for the most vulnerable customers.

Gas tariffs are to rise by 1.6%, and the price of a packet of cigarettes increases by 50 cents.

The fifth edition of the Tobacco Free Month began on Sunday, November 1st and to better persuade smokers to quit, the pack of 20 cigarettes increases on average by 50 cents.

Finally, while the number of vulnerable people is increasing with the Covid-19 pandemic, the winter truce comes into force, with no eviction from housing able to take place until March 31st 2021 and the conditions for capping bank charges are to be better specified.
