    Car Hire Paris

    Paris Car HireFrom fine dining to some of the world's best museums, and from little antique shops to boutique shopping in gorgeous buildings; Paris has a lot of charm and romance to offer. Embrace the romance in the iconic city of Paris. There is no shortage of landmarks to visit in this city, including the Louvre, Eiffel Tower, Sacré Coeur and the Arc de Triomphe. Taste locally made wine and cheese with deliciously fresh French bread while people-watching at one of the many cafes. Walk along the Seine to Notre-Dame, shop at the designer stores along the Champs-Élysées, then enjoy a fabulous dinner in St. Germain. Paris is enchanting and endlessly entertaining for any visitor. The City of Love, as Paris is so fondly called, is filled to the brim with history, art, fashion, food and much more.

    Just outside of Paris, spend a day visiting the exquisite Palace of Versailles and the Palace of Fontainebleau. In central France, tour around the Loire Valley, sipping the wines and taking in the beauty of some historic French architecture. You can also travel to some of the charming, historic villages around Northern France including Rennes, St. Malo, Reims and Lille - each with its own unique allure and easily accessible from Paris by car.

    Convenient Locations in Paris

    Travellers to Paris will be pleased to find a number of convenient car hire pick-up and drop-off locations across the city. From popular airport and rail stations to downtown offices across the city, we've got a convenient location for you. Alongside this, Auto Europe has teamed up with top suppliers such as Europcar, Avis and Hertz to make sure your experience is as easy as can be.

    Our suppliers depots are conveniently located at the main Paris train stations, including Gare du Nord, Gare de l'Est, and Gare Montparnasse. Suppliers also have car depots at the main Paris airports; Charles de Gaulle Airport, Beauvais Airport, and Orly West. Depots are also located at over 30 downtown destinations, as well as the Disneyland TGV Railway Station.

    As with parking in many cities, the closer to the centre of Paris, the more expensive the charges generally are. It is advisable to budget around €20 per day for parking in the underground car parks close to the centre, and slightly less for the outskirts of Paris. Many of the main motorways in to and out of Paris have toll charges. Toll roads can usually be quicker and better maintained than the free roads, but you can pass through small French towns and mingle with the locals if you take your car through the smaller roads. If you decide to drive along the back-roads, ensure you have a good map or SatNav to help plan your journey.
