  • By hiring a vehicle in Paris, you give yourself the freedom and flexibility to explore the City of Love at your own pace and in your own way. With your own hire vehicle, you can head out to popular attractions outside of peak times and enjoy the city’s vibrant dining and nightlife scene on your own schedule.
  • If you want to get out of the city from time to time, Paris is an excellent starting point for plenty of beautiful road trips. If you love champagne, you can take the A4 to Reims and discover the place where bubbly was created. A little closer to the city, on the western outskirts of Paris, you’ll find the Palace of Versailles. Farther west, off the coast of Normandy, you can explore the Mont-Saint-Michel island.
  • In Paris, and all throughout France, your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) can be no greater than 0.05% when driving a vehicle on an open licence. Note that different countries in Europe have different legal BACs. For example, in the UK, it’s 0.08%, while in Sweden, it’s 0.02%. So, if you plan on driving to other countries with your hire car, always check the drink driving rules.

Car hire FAQs

Find answers to frequently asked questions about car hires in Paris, including policies, requirements, and more. FAQs were last updated on 29 May 2024.
  • Can I drive my hire vehicle from Paris to any neighbouring European countries?

    You can generally hire a vehicle in Paris and drive to other European nations without any issues. However, it’s crucial to discuss your plans with your hire agency first as you may have to pay cross-border fees or take out special insurance coverage for your trip.

  • Are there any toll roads in or around Paris?

    There are no toll roads within the city of Paris, but if you plan to travel beyond the city limits, you may encounter toll roads on the highways in France.

To avoid any surprises, it’s always a good idea to check your route beforehand to see if you’ll need to pay any tolls.

  • Do kids require child car seats in hire vehicles in Paris?
