Driving Rules in France

When driving in France it is important to remember that the rules of the road might be different to your own country. Staying safe in your car rental in France is important so firstly remember to drive on the right and overtake on the left. Other rules include:

  • Carry two NF certified breathalysers because an unused one must be produced on request
  • Reflective jackets and a warning triangle are also compulsory
  • You must not carry any device capable of warning of speed cameras; this feature on sat navs must be disabled
  • The Normal speed limit on motorways is 80 mph (130km/h) and in urban areas it is 31 mph (50km/h)
These are just a few of the unique points about driving a car rental in France that Sixt would like you to be aware of.

What to see with your car rental in France

Pick up your car hire in Paris and explore the culture and history of France for yourself. Picnic on the Seine or sample world famous cuisine in a fancy restaurant. From art galleries, the Eiffel tower or the Bastille, there is so much to choose from. Don't just go to the usual tourist spots though. To experience authentic France, explore the provinces using your comfortable car rental and see how the real people live. You can discover all, or part of, France using auto routes and small rural roads, for example driving through the Loire Valley, to the Dordogne region, and on to Provence.
