Free Advice on Choosing Car on Rent

Car Rental France
Rental Car in unknown city is always hectic thing we every face as we don’t have any ideas on what the cheapest way to avail car rental in unknown city. Here I mentioned some free advice on choosing car rental in Paris.

1. Car rental is possible under certain conditions - you are over 21 years in some companies, the requirements of 25 years, you have a credit card and international driving license.

If no credit card, then it is theoretically possible to pay rent cars in cash, BUT! As a rule permitting only a small local offices to rent a car , which implies that the level of service will be much lower than in large companies, for example, if the car breaks down on the road, it will be solely your problems, while the giants rolled all efforts would take.

Or is there an easier but more expensive way, you can apply even in France, the agency providing assistance in renting a car in Paris France, for example,

2) Making a contract, ask the manager to explain to you in detail every item of it, especially the section Coverage. Check the filling of the graph. Make sure that the car and have insurance in case of an accident. However, insurance is issued by the companies to rent a car, does not apply to car theft. And if you have a hotel without an internal parking lot, we really do recommend insurance to cover expenses in case of theft.

3) The final settlement takes place on the return of the vehicle. This takes time! Therefore you should not arrive at the airport for half an hour before departure in the hope that you will be free in a few minutes. The company must inspect the car for damage and sign the appropriate paper, and only then take money from you and will close the deal. By the way, most companies require that the car is returned with the same amount of fuel, which was taken as well as clean inside and out. In another case you can deduct the cost of cleaning and the missing gasoline.


1) First, recall that in the summer of France, the place is quite hot, so choosing a car take the car only with air conditioning! Do not skimp on the conditioner, or after each trip you'll feel as if you were carrying a machine on him but it is not you...

2) Following important nuance: when renting the car, choose the car convenient and compact, but not beautiful... On the whole island is a problem with parking - the less you take the car, the easier it is to find a parking place, with a large machine can hover for a long time in search of a suitable size parking space. However, if you are going to travel by car further than to the sea and back again, look for a car is convenient - you do not feel "tight", i.e. for example, SMART better in this case to refuse.

3) If you plan to arrive or come to a town on the island, and sent back from another city - in advance see if the place of origin is a point of that company to rent a car, where you took the car to leave at the end did not have to frantically look for another car.

4) And again about parking - we do not recommend to park car in prohibited places - in the best case, the penalty will be discharged not less than 100 Euros, at worst - car taken away, and then you'll be running around and trying to figure out where is it! Do not be confused by the presence of vehicles in prohibited areas - they meet the same fate in case of failure. So do not park in the prohibitory signs, and if Pri-park the blue lines - buy parking tickets.

5) Be very careful with parking cars! Park next to the hotel, bar or beach etc., or day-of paid parking better - not blue stripes, and enclosure with the caretakers. Because unfortunately, car theft is perhaps the only, but rather a real danger in France, although of course there are exceptions - almost all small towns, where almost everyone knows each other, the cars leave even kilometer to the house. Or close to tourist attractions parked near the sights you can leave safely, though more often here, dispose of unofficial caretakers, who on returning to the car usually leave a trifle. Hijackers in places where there are caretakers do not even look.

If it is possible - try to stay in hotels that have their own parking.

6) In France, many cars are charged with a diesel engine - taking a car, ask about the necessary fuel, which drives this car with a gasoline car is faster, and with a diesel engine usually drives more miles.

7) As a general rule, the price of rent per day is reduced, depending on the period for which you take the car, i.e., more days - the less the price.

8) And finally - if you want to feel like celebrities then you can hire luxurious cars like a Ferrari or Lamborghini - it is also possible of course, the price will be different, but fun and get incomparably more. But for that you need to search on internet.
