The incredible diversity of France’s culture, landscape and attractions makes it one of the most interesting places to seek out cheap car hire and venture off in search of chic couture, wine, cheese, golf, water parks – anything!

As a key arrival city for international travellers, cheap car hire in Paris is something we’ve got covered. We find a huge number of adventurous folks are eager to hit the road in search of their own epic French journey. Bordering Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Luxembourg and Belgium, France is the perfect start/finish point to your European travels.

A top tip from our team – be careful of parking restrictions throughout France. Traffic police are not known for their sense of humour, and enforce parking regulations with intense stringency throughout medium sized towns to major cities. “Stationnement Alterne Semi-Mensal” signs often cause a little confusion amongst non-native drivers. They basically mean that for the first half of a month parking is permitted on one side of the road, but for the remaining half it will only be permitted on the other side (the idea being to minimise traffic congestion) Signs usually carry the figures “1-15” or “16-31” meaning you can’t park on the side of the road between the dates posted.

Despite occasionally confusing parking regulations, car hire in France is generally a very easy option to get around. Cheap car hire agents are fairly numerous, but it’s worth booking through an online service like ours to eliminate language barrier issues and search for the absolute best deals.
