What is the most popular rental car category in France?
Plan on hitting the road in France? Jump behind the wheel of a compact car. A cinch to park, more gas to the gallon, and increased agility are only a few reasons they’re the top pick in rental cars here. When you ride down the buzzing streets of Paris or Lyon, a compact car will take the stress out of your trip.It’s always a nice idea to head out of the city, and if you do, you’ll be rewarded for your efforts. With dunes, sandy shores, and gorges to see, France knows how to do an exciting day trip. A larger vehicle like a four-wheel drive or an SUV will give you and the family more room to move for those long, scenic drives.
Should I get a luxury rental car in France?
Sometimes it’s all about the journey, which makes your car choice particularly important. If you’re planning an amazing road trip around France, a safe and sturdy SUV could be the ideal solution. If you’re hoping for the best possible deal and plan on staying mostly in the city, a versatile compact is a clever pick. All you need to do is choose what will suit you best, round up the troops, and hit the road.
What side of the road do they drive on in France?
In France, you’ll have to stick to the right side. When exploring someplace new, it’s smart to select a car with automatic transmission. That way, you can concentrate on the road and not stress about gear changes.
What happens if I get a speeding fine while driving a rental car in France?
Normally, one of two things will happen. Your chosen car rental company may charge the amount stated on the fine to your credit card. This is the more common practice. Or it may give your contact information to local law enforcement agencies so the fine is sent directly to you.
