Petrol stations in Marseille are mainly on the outskirts of the city. There are hardly any gas stations in the city centre. The further east you are from the centre of Marseilles, the more petrol stations you will find. There are also several ways to refuel your hired car directly on the water.

The fully comprehensive car hire insurance without excess is absolutely advised to book when hiring a vehicle. Damage caused by the driver's own fault is covered.

So it is better to pay a little more money for the insurance and not to be stingy here than to collect a high bill at the end.

If you know from the outset that you will not be the sole driver of the hired car, it is even necessary to have every other driver admitted before the start of the journey.
