Car Hire in France

A country that seduces travellers with a culture woven around café terraces, village-square markets and lace-curtained bistros, we offer car rental throughout France so you have the freedom to explore at your leisure:

Discover Paris and the Loire Valley Chateaux

Needing almost no introduction, Paris is not to be missed on any holiday in France. Pick up a hire car and set aside enough time to take in the must-dos: the Louvre, Eiffel Tower, and Montmartre. Veer off the regular tourist track to explore the Sainte-Chapelle, the Marais and the Latin Quarter, or relax in any of the quiet squares and parks of Paris that offer an oasis away from the hustle and bustle.

Then, steer your hire car out of town and towards the coast through the Loire Valley, dotted with stately castles or ‘chateaux,’ built in centuries past. Not to be missed is the striking Chateau de Chenonceau, its arches rising elegantly from the surrounding moat.

Road trip through the South of France

Discover a different side of France in the South: sunny, lively and colourful. Pick up your car hire from Toulouse and drive to Carcassonne, a town renowned for its immaculately preserved medieval fortified city. The lovely town of Avignon is also worth a visit, as is the nearby Verdon regional park, famous for its stunning aqua coloured gorges perfect for paddling in summer.

On the coast, don’t miss Marseille, voted Cultural Capital of Europe in 2013. It also boasts a coastline of pristine ‘calanques’, sheltered bays of bright blue, clear water. For more impressive ocean views and historic architecture, explore Antibes and Nice before dropping off your car rental in Cannes.

Seek adventure in the French Alps

If you prefer staggering heights to lazing by the water, use your car rental to explore the French Alps. The best way to enjoy the Alps is outdoors. Pick up a rental car from Grenoble or French Geneva and wind your way over to Chamonix, made famous by the Mont Blanc. Meaning ‘white mountain’, it is the tallest peak in the Alps and the area is one of France’s top ski destinations.

If you’re in the area for summer, the mountains are a very popular destination for hikers, from the hardiest mountaineers to those preferring a gentle amble. The Alps are also dotted with lakes, so you can take a road trip in search of the perfect swimming spot.
