Where to rent a car?

Car rental agencies (Hertz, Europcar, Avis, etc.) are generally located in city centers, or near airports and train stations.

How to rent a cheap car?

Car rental also benefits from the low cost phenomenon: new players have entered the market, such as Budget or Rent a Car. What is more, the prices offered online are generally cheaper than at an agency.

What types of cars can I rent?

In agencies, it is possible to rent 2-3 or 4-5 doors, convertibles, minivans, SUVs, station wagons, sedans or even luxury cars. You can also hire utility vehicles.

Can we rent a car by the month or for a long period?
Some agencies allow you to hire a car for several months. However, be careful about the number of kilometers authorized per day or the total duration of your rental. Depending on the agency, payment may be required at once.

If by long-term rental you mean leasing, we advise you to contact a car rental agency directly to find the offer that best suits your needs.

At what age can I rent a car?

The legal age to rent a car in France is 21 years old. But there may be differences between countries:

  • USA: 18 years old
  • Italy: 19 years old
  • Austria: 19
  • Israel: 24 years old
  • Ireland: 25 years old

For certain types of vehicles (utilities, luxury cars), it is sometimes necessary to be over 25 years old. It is also required to have had your license for at least 1 year (or even 3 years for certain rental companies). Please note that additional fees may apply if you are a young driver.

What documents are required to rent a car?

When renting a car you will need to provide:

  • Your identity card or passport
  • Your driver’s license
  • A bank card in your name
  • Proof of address (depending on the agency)
  • A phone number (depending on the agency)

Do I need to take out insurance to rent a car?

Civil insurance – covering bodily injury and material damage caused to others – is included in the rental price. The additional insurance offered by the rental company covers the costs of repairing the vehicle, in the event of a problem for which you are responsible. You don’t have to subscribe to it. The brand must tell you the maximum amount of its participation, beyond which it does not cover repairs. If you do not wish to subscribe to this insurance, check the amount of the deductible.

Can you rent a car without a credit card?

It is possible to book a car rental without a credit card. The solutions available to you to achieve this are the debit card, prepaid card, cash, holiday vouchers or bank check. Make sure in advance that the rental agency accepts these solutions.

Can I cross borders with my rental car?
It is possible to cross borders with a rental car. But for that, inform the car rental agency concerned beforehand. Also make sure that the insurance taken out is taken into account in the different countries covered.

In most cases, agencies will let you cross borders for free, but some of them charge for this option.

What should I watch out for when renting a car?

When you collect your rental car, make sure, during the inventory in the presence of a person from the brand, to record any anomaly identified in the rental contract. These may relate to:

  • The body
  • The tires
  • Mirrors
  • The state of the seats
  • Front or rear lights
  • The mileage, which must be identical to that recorded on the contract

Remember to return the vehicle to the same fuel level as when you collected it, otherwise you will be charged for the missing liters at a higher price.

Finally, when returning the vehicle, do not be late so as not to pay additional agency fees! Need to take stock of these precious tips before your next rental? Find all the necessary information in our guide on car rental.
