PARIS CAR HIRE - CAR HIRE IN PARIS FRANCE

Paris Car HireParis Car Hire - We will tell you as well as many others will that driving in central Paris is not advised. If you rent a car and take it to your hotel most of them do not have garages and parking is difficult. If you are parked illegally your car will be towed away. That is just one of the problems you will be faced with and that is of parking.

There are also terrible Traffic Jams and they are very frequent. During those congested times you will travel at only 10 mph, but if you take the metro its average speed is 17mph. Not to mention that it is very difficult to drive about the city especially if you are not familiar with it. We do advise using another form of transportation but, if you do decide to take the risk of driving and need to rent a car the minimum age for car hirel varies from 21-25 years. Drivers must have held a National Driving License for at least one year. You will need a credit card and the cost is paid for with the driver's credit card.

We have discussed above the reasons for not renting cars while you are in Paris and we will also mention that there are Airport Shuttles to take you to and from the airport. All being said, if you would still like to rent a car these are the rental companies below that offer rentals in the city of Paris. Be sure to check each ones for the best rates and take advantage of any free upgrades on the vehicles. Check with your travel agent for package deals. Some include the airfare, hotel and rental. You can save quite a bit of money if you can find a great package. Remember to follow the rules of the road. Make it your priority and by all means drive safely.
