With lots of scenic routes, vineyards and major cities to explore - hiring a car in France is a great way to travel around the country. Whether you're attracted to the beautiful beaches by Nice or the exquisite food of the Burgundy region, you won't be disappointed with all that France has to offer.
Hiring a car in France
Getting hold of a car is easy. All cities and most larger towns have rental agencies where you can pick up from. Major airports will also have car hire booths. In France they drive on the right hand side of the road. Motorways are well maintained and usually provide a pleasant drive, but watch out for toll roads, as many of the motorways have a small charge for driving between cities.
