FAQ
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for a rental car should preferably be made by credit card. It is possible to pay by debit card, however at the rental counter you will need a credit card issued to the main driver in order to secure the deposit for your rental car.
Who is allowed to drive the rental car and what are the conditions?
A rental car can be driven by a main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. The main and additional drivers are to present a valid driving license, which they have been in possession of for at least one year (please refer to the rental conditions), and a valid identity card/passport. Additionally, the main driver is to present a valid credit card issued in their name.
Do I have to pick up and return the car at any time? What happens if I am late for pick-up?
We recommend that you pick up the car at the agreed time as the availability of the car cannot be guaranteed in case of a delay. As a rule, local suppliers keep vehicles available up to 30 or 60 minutes after the agreed time. If a delay is inevitable, please contact the rental agency (you will find their contact details on the voucher).
What documents are required to pick up the vehicle?
When picking up the vehicle, the main driver is to present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driving's license and their valid credit card.

Paris Attractions and Travel Tips

Cheap Car Rental Paris

Car Rental in Paris

The city of lights and romance is an idyllic holiday destination. From corner café culture to picturesque boulevards and iconic, world-famous buildings, a car rental in Paris is the perfect way to explore the city and beyond. Whether you're visiting to feast on the city's acclaimed art and cultural pedigree, or you're simply looking to wine and dine, Paris has much to offer all visitors. Read on to learn how best to discover the city with a car hire in Paris.

Places to see in Paris

With a plenitude of famed museums and galleries, it's no wonder Paris attracts so many tourists every year. The streets are packed with iconic architectural feats, from the Eiffel Tower to the Arc de Triomphe, as you navigate from one star-attraction to another. Chief on the list for most will be the Louvre, the Musée d’Orsay and the Musée Rodin, each harboring some of the world's most acclaimed artworks

In terms of other must-visit attractions, the Eiffel Tower, the Basilique du Sacré-Cœur and the Cathédrale Notre Dame de Paris must be at the top of the list, with the macabre Les Catacombes (underground tunnels lined with bones and skulls) offering a darker day out. Rental cars in Paris can easily take you to these must-visit destinations. That's not to mention the stylish shopping opportunities and vibrant flea markets found throughout the city.

Tip

Although no visit to Paris would be complete without a visit to the Eiffel Tower, don’t expect a quiet and romantic experience. For the best views, beat the crowds and head over to the stairs found behind the Embassy of Croatia. There you’ll find a quieter view of the Eiffel Tower which is particularly beautiful at night.

What is there to eat and drink in Paris?

France is renowned for its refined cuisine, so expect to put on a few pounds on your Paris visit. Paris hosts some of the most esteemed Michelin-starred restaurants with impeccable presentation and style (like Guy Savoy). However, bistros can be just as elegant and rewarding. You should also expect age-old patisseries and boulangeries offering fresh cakes and bread, with fromageries offering some of the country's best cheeses. In terms of drink, this is the wine capital of the world, but you can also find cocktail bars and craft beer joints for another side of Parisian culture.

What is there for kids to do in Paris?

If you’re traveling to the city with children, the good news is that, if you rent a car in Paris, it allows you to visit some of the region’s best kid-friendly attractions. At the top of the list is Disneyland Paris, some 50 minutes’ drive from the city. There is also a zoo (Ménagerie du Jardin des Plantes), a funfair (Jardin d’Acclimatation) and a picturesque park with play areas and alcoves (Parc des Buttes-Chaumont) that is a real hit with children. All of the city’s science and art museums also have something for little ones, although Cité des Sciences is the cream of the crop.

When should you book your rental car?
