Basic Assistance (+10km/France/direct bordering countries) is included with most insurance policies in France, even for older vehicles. Never had to use it for the bikes but a couple of times for cars and they turned up very quickly. I’ve heard of people in the UK having to wait 24hrs for the RAC!
I can vouch for the efficiency of the French breakdown service - on the motorway at least.
I ran out of fuel (first time in my life); made the call from the intercom box and the chap was there in 15 mins with 5 litres. Followed him to the service area and filled up and paid him the recovery fee.
I was well impressed.
