KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Paris

  • The capital of France is an excellent place to explore with a rental car. The city is compact and easy to navigate, while its surrounding towns and villages make for a great day trip from Paris. In addition, traffic in the city isn't as bad as you think. If you want to rent a car in Paris, here are some important tips that will help make your experience as stress-free as possible.
  • One way to make your driving experience in Paris more manageable is by bringing an extra map. You can find GPS maps for virtually any country online and in most outdoor stores, making it easy to pick up a map for Paris. This can be especially helpful if you are new to driving in the city, as a GPS map can show you where the various landmarks are located.
  • When you arrive in Paris, you should also reserve your car ahead of time. This will make it easier to find a location that has availability and will help you avoid any issues with the rental location. You can reserve your car ahead of time by using services like Getaround or its dedicated app for France. With either option, you can search for locations in Paris that have available cars easily.
  • Planning on picking up a rental car upon landing in Paris? For flights landing at Charles de Gaulle Airport, you will be able to find rental car desks in Terminals 1, 2ACD, 2E, 2F, and 2G. If your flight lands at Orly Airport instead, then the rental car agencies will be found in Terminal Ouest.
  • Paris can be very difficult to navigate for drivers unfamiliar with the city; the large roundabouts and narrow one-way lanes are especially challenging. It is highly advised to stick to the outlying areas of the city if you are driving, as the main downtown areas can be quite congested and there is limited parking. However, one possible compromise is to park in an outer area and take public transportation into the central arrondissements (districts).
  • As work typically starts around 9 a.m. in Paris, morning rush hour lasts a bit later there in comparison to cities in North America. In general, morning rush hour lasts from 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. and it is particularly bad for drivers heading into the city. Evening rush hour lasts from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. with outbound traffic leaving Paris experiencing the worst of it.
  • Looking forward to visiting the Versailles Palace during your time in France? One great way to get there is to rent a car while you are vacationing in Paris. Versailles, Disneyland, and Fontainebleau are just some of the day trips that are easily reached via rental car from Paris.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Paris for C$ 46 or less
  • Book your rental car in Paris at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in Paris are around 16% cheaper than airport locations on average

It was fun to drive through France. As an American, this trip reiterated to me that most of the time it’s better to take a train. It’s usually faster and less expensive (unlike in the U.S.). The tolls I paid were probably close to €100 each way and parking is often quite expensive. Also, lookout for the signs that indicate a camera speed trap, they are common. I would stick to the speed limit! Next time I want a road trip, I’ll plan more time and instead of paying tolls, I’ll avoid the toll ways and try taking the country roads for a longer but more pleasant ride. Use the toll money to pay for a hotel in a countryside place instead! However, I appreciate that there is inventive to take the more environmentally friendly option.

No need to show up early; your car won't be ready. It would also be nice to know that you can drop your car at any location when returning. This was a huge help as we took the car on the east end of downtown Paris, and returned it at the airport.

Be carful following Apple Maps in Paris - our routed us through the pedestrian area of the Louvre. Other than that, Paris is no more difficult than driving in Chicago or New York.
