When you pick up the hired car at the airport, you don't have to carry your baggage around in public transport.

One-way rentals

A one-way rental is an option you can choose while booking your hire car. One-way rental means that you pick up your hired car at one station and return it at another. In other words, this means that the pick-up station, therefore, does not correspond to the drop-off station

On, you can inform yourself where rental stations are and where to return the hired car. Many car hire companies offer one-way rentals for a one-way fee.

Where can I park my hired car in Paris?

Signpost in Paris

Travelling in a hired car in Paris is not rocket science. A wide range of car parks, where you can park your hired car from just one euro per hour, makes it easy for you to get to most of the beautiful sights in the city. However, if you are in the suburbs and cannot find a parking garage, then it is advisable to pay attention to the lane markings, which tell you whether or not you can park your car there. A general stopping ban applies under bridges and in tunnels or underpasses.

Colour of lane marking Meaning of lane marking
Blue Limited or free parking with parking disc allowed
Yellow dashed No-parking zone
Yellow Holding and parking ban

Tolls in and around Paris

Most French motorways are subject to a toll, so it is advisable to plan your trip in advance if you want to go outside of Paris with your hired car. In most cases, the toll is either payable when driving onto the motorway or a ticket must be drawn to pay the fee when leaving.

What road signs should I know before driving a hired car in Paris?

If you are not proficient in French, it is advisable to memorise some traffic signs before starting your journey. The most important traffic signs are listed below:

French English
Toutes Directions All directions
Rappel Reminder (mostly at speed limits)
Centre Ville Direction city centre
Passage interdit Do not pass
Ralentir Drive slowly
Serrez a droite Stay on the right
Déviation Diversion
Vous n'avez pas la priorité No right of way
Fin d'interdiction de dépasser End of overtaking ban

What are the options for my hired car?


With the right insurance through Paris

With the right insurance through Paris

Even if you drive very carefully and safely, damage may occur to the hired car. To ensure that you can continue your journey without stress, we recommend that you take out fully comprehensive insurance without excess. In the event of damage, you will have to advance the costs. However, you will be reimbursed by your insurance company after your arrival back home. Simply submit the relevant receipts when you return from Paris.

One-way rental

For those who want to do a road trip to Paris with a hired car, the one-way rental might be the best option. This means that you can pick up your hired car at the location of your choice and return it conveniently to another location.

Additional driver

What does the additional driver option actually mean? If you specify another person as an additional driver when booking, you can take turns driving the hired car. Distances in France can be very long and if you are planning to do a road trip through different cities. For example, you can visit other cities like Brussels and Versailles. 

So that the driver can sit back and relax, too, you can simply hand over the steering wheel to the additional driver.
