French motorists drive on the right-hand side of the road. Each country can have slightly different driving rules, so be safe. Ensure you familiarise yourself with the legal driving requirements, road symbols and stick to the legal speed limit, which can change during poor weather.
All of our rental bookings include Value Added Tax (VAT) and third-party liability insurance. You can also have peace of mind with 24-hour emergency roadside assistance and 24/7 phone support.
Say Bonjour! to gourmet food, Champagne, the Eiffel Tower, the Alps and much more on your French escape. On the outskirts of Paris, you can walk in the footsteps of French royalty and spend an afternoon meandering through the Gardens of Versailles, just one of the thirty-four cultural UNESCO World Heritage Sites scattered across France.
The beautiful French Riviera - the Mediterranean coastline of the southeast of France (including Monaco) - includes many well-known seaside resorts such as Nice, Cannes and the yachting paradise of Saint-Tropez. If you feel particularly adventurous you can treat your taste buds to the French cuisine of snails and frog legs. If these dishes are too hard to swallow, you can sip on world-class wines in the Bordeaux region in the west and enjoy Champagne produced in the historic province 160km east of Paris.
It is a requirement that visiting motorists carry their valid Australian State or Territory driving licence in addition to a valid International Driving Permit which must be obtained before leaving Australia. The minimum age to rent a car in France is 18 years, though some suppliers may charge a fee for young drivers (25 and under).
Many of the main roads in France that connect the major cities are toll roads. Péage means "toll". These roads are well maintained and useful when driving between cities, but if you have time, driving on the smaller roads will give you the opportunity to drive through small towns and grab a baguette or croissant from a true boulangerie.
If you plan on visiting more of Europe than simply France, there are a few things to bear in mind. You will need to inform us of the countries you intend to visit at the time of booking and when you pick up your rental car. In general, travel across borders is permitted between west and central European nations.
Each provider has slightly different rules regarding travel in to certain countries and it is advisable to make sure that your planned driving route is in accordance with any international restrictions in place. Fees may also be payable to the supplier, the main reason for this is to cover the insurance based on the safety of the area you are travelling to, and locally at border crossings.
