Top tips for hiring a car in France

  • If you are bringing children with you to France, you must be aware of the child car seat rules. Children under the age of 10 must ride in a car seat or restraint. If they are under 13 kg (28 lbs.), they must be placed in a rear-facing seat in either the front passenger seat or one of the back seats. For children up 18 kg (39 lbs.), a child seat with a harness or protection tray is required. For children between 18 kg (39 lbs.) and 36 kg (79 lbs.), they must sit in a booster seat secured with an adult seatbelt.
  • The biggest advantage of renting a car in France is that it is an efficient and affordable way to travel. Having a car will allow you to do a road trip cross-country or to take the historic Route Napoléon in the Alpes-Maritimes.
  • When you drive on French roads, you will find several toll highways, also known as "autoroutes péages." These highways are marked by blue signs with the letter "A" before the number. You will need to collect a ticket when you enter the toll road and pay according to your distance traveled when you exit. The current cost is about €1 ($1.13) per 10 mi.
  • When it comes to renting the right car, it all depends on what sort of driving you intend to do on your French vacation. If you are heading down to the French Riviera, a convertible is ideal for cruising around in the sunshine, while if you are planning a family holiday in the Alps, a station wagon or a large sedan is suitable. If you are visiting Paris, then a city car or compact car is best; or if you opt for the countryside, four-wheel drives are perfect.
