Car hire in France
Hiring a car in France
With its beautiful beaches, spectacular ski slopes and gourmet cuisine, it’s no suprise that France attracts millions of tourists from around the world every year. It’s very popular to those visitors with a car, as they can discover quaint villages and cross the borders into neighbouring countries.
France is also home to some of the most famous cultural landmarks in the world, such as the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe and Notre Dame. Outside of the capital, there is so much to discover in the country’s provinces. From pretty vineyards to magnificent architecture and charming markets to delicious cheeses, there is something to discover around every turn in the road. Just get in the car and let France show you why it has such an enduring appeal.

Where to pick up your hire car
There are several airports in France - with the most popular being Paris Charles de Gaulle (CDG), Paris Orly (ORY), Nice (NC) and Lyon St Exupéry (LYS) - meaning you can fly to wherever you’d like your trip to start. Usually, car supplier desks are found in the terminal building, after you’ve passed through arrivals. However, some offer a free shuttle bus service if they are outside and a fair distance away. You can also pick your car at other locations dotted around mainland France, so just check before you travel.
