Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately we were not driving in India and Vietnam as we had cars and drivers supplied by my husband's company. Before we left England in 2001, we had the maximum no bonus claim of 60% but of course it was a long time ago. Will try Axa nevertheless.

Try AXA - after 3 years in Kenya and 5 in Tanzania they still gave me credit for these, you should get something for your time overseas - assuming you were driving yourself in an insured car.
Good luck

Hi, we have Smart cars, French and British and have insured them quite cheaply with Premium Assurances in Monaco and also AXA, it has nothing to do with your driving licence.Good luck

Our principal residence is Hyeres and the Smart is French registered. Thanks for your reply.

The cost of your insurance is nothing to do with having a UK licence, there is no requirement to change to a French one, except in certain circumstances. It is more likely to be, because of a lack of no claims bonus. Shop around for a company that will give you a better deal.

Where is your principal residence and is the Smart car French registered?
