Getting there

Going to Paris has never been so easy – especially with the construction of the Euro-Tunnel. Introducing a new level of competition with ferry services and airports, the tunnel has made the English Channel crossable in more ways than we could have ever imagined and that means travelling across France is easier than ever before.

Leaving your car at home

However you decide to get to Paris, it often proves cheaper and far less hassle to leave your car back on home soil. This doesn’t necessarily mean forgoing the benefits of your own transport entirely though, with car hire in Paris the perfect compromise. With a full range of cars at your disposal through our fantastic hire options, you could even select a model set up for right-hand drive.

Those still concerned about finding their feet when it comes to driving on the right (or should that be wrong?) side of the road can also take advantage of our fantastic chauffeur driven car hire in Paris. We had a dedicated call centre open at all times to handle enquiries on this so you can get the answers you need when you need them.

Driving in Paris via our chauffeur service is perhaps the easiest and most convenient option for those unfamiliar with French roads and all of our drivers are thoroughly checked to ensure you get a high quality service.

Not only does this option give you the luxurious feeling of being driven around one of Europe’s most famous cities but you’ll also have chance to enjoy all the sights and sounds of the iconic landscape without having to worry about remembering different rules of the road.

What to do?

Rich in culture, Paris is a culinary paradise full of different types of food: from Algerian to Indian; Russian to Vietnamese. Many people would find it quite impossible to go to France without sampling wine from their hundreds of vineyards. Cotes de Rhone, Bordeaux and Chinon are all fine wines you can expect to find served in most bistros, restaurants and bars.

In terms of historical attractions, what can be more romantic than visiting such historically rich landmarks as the Arc de Triomphe or the famous Bastille? Le Marais is a district of Paris which is home to some of the oldest architecture the city has to offer and has been beautifully preserved.

Avenue Montaigne is where some of the world’s finest brand labels are housed and for those with an interest in fashion there will be plenty of luxury items to keep you happy. If art and culture is your thing, you won’t want to miss the Montparnasse district with its art studios and music halls.

Of course, no romantic getaway to Paris would be complete without a glimpse of the remarkable and breath-taking Eiffel Tower – especially when seen lit-up at night. In order to make sure you don’t miss a thing, be sure to plan your journey in advance so you can squeeze as much in as possible.

    Hi Jonathan
    Paris is indeed the place my husband & I are looking forward to visiting in France early March. But as we’ll have our two children with us romance is not likely to be on the cards, LOL :-) Nevertheless, we would all be looking forward to our holiday if it weren’t for the fact that we are having problems with car hire. Your customer telephone & web info say we’ll be okay using VISA debit with no credit card needed but after Indigo car hire convinced us that we’d need a credit card & me making a phone call to the desk at CDG who in limited English confirmed the same – well I’m very anxious because for us not to have a hire car would make our holiday impossible because of my mobility/health problems. And unthinkable to discover this at the desk at the airport when its too late to make other arrangements. Just wondering if you may have any suggestions on how I could get a confirmed answer either way?
    I did email customer care but now I see a different email below – should I have used this instead?
    Any help would be very gratefully received. After a few particular rough years all of us need this enjoyable first time trip to France to lool forward to.

    Hello Katina,
    Different car hire companies have different requirements for renting vehicles, at Paris CDG we accept American Express, MasterCard (debit and credit), Visa Credit or Debit (excluding. Visa Electron) and Diners Card cards. To avoid confusion we recommend calling the Avis call centre and they will be able to answer all any questions – 0844 581 0147. One last thing, make sure you take the same card to the rental station that you used to reserve the vehicle.
    We hope you have a lovely trip, springtime in Paris should be lovely!
    Hope this helps
