As the streets in Paris tend to be narrow and parking is limited, a compact hatchback is a great choice for vehicle hire if you are going to be travelling around the city centre frequently. Perhaps you are travelling around the countryside on the outskirts of Paris, in which case you may prefer to select a 4x4 for your car hire to make travelling the rural roads easier. Larger families or business parties may wish to opt for a minibus or van to transport goods. Please note that our fleet of rental cars has options for differing levels of mobility.

You can add extra value to your car rental in Paris with our practical range of extras. If you are unfamiliar with the area you may wish to add a Sat Nav to your rental vehicle, include additional insurance for added peace of mind or have a child seat for driving with a young child. You can add another driver to the car hire in Paris so that you can share driving duties and make sure that you are each properly rested. You can also choose a hybrid vehicle or kit your vehicle out with a ski rack if you are heading to the slopes.

Traffic Information

Traffic Information

Paris' ring-road system can be complex and somewhat intimidating for those unfamiliar with the area, so when you hire a car it is a good idea to opt for a Sat Nav as an add-on. You can circumvent the busy centre of Paris by taking the A86, Paris' equivalent to the M25 in London. The Boulevard Peripherique is similar to London's north and south circular roads, in that if you miss a turning you will need to go around again. This makes it vital that you plan travel in Paris well and stay vigilant for the correct turning. Due to strict motoring restrictions be careful to comply with speed limits and you should also be aware that speed-camera or radar detectors are illegal in France. During the evening and late at night, traffic is lighter, allowing you to get around the city at your leisure. If you will be driving near the Arc de Triomphe, you can avoid the confusing Étoile roundabout by using either rue de Presbourg and rue de Tilsitt, two streets that form a ring around the Étoile and avoid you having to cross the busiest roundabout in Paris.

Sixt Tip

Sixt Tip

Paris offers the highest concentration of tourist attractions in France, showcasing some of the world's most famous museums, a scenic river view and a wide range of historic monuments. However, it is worth setting time aside to visit some of Paris' lesser-known attractions to experience the city's hidden gems. On rue de la Bûcherie, you'll find Shakespeare and Company, a bookstore that was opened in 1951 by an accentric American called George Whitman. The bookshop has a 'Tumbleweed' tradition, where guests must write a biography and help out for an hour or two around the shop. There are 13 'book shelves' which in fact convert to beds at night and around 40,000 people have slept in the shop.
