Try also to choose different rental points; practice shows that the price for the same car may differ by 20 - 30% depending on where you are planning to pick it up.

IMPORTANT. It often happens that at the moment of receiving the car receipt, you may be requested to provide your personal credit card. To find out in advance which card you need, carefully read the Payment Methods section in the document with rental terms.

Deposit and credit card information


If a provider does indicate the need to provide a credit card when booking, and you do not have it, check the status of your debit card on www.bindb.com. The fact is that some debit cards are actually credit cards with zero limit. If your card is one of them, you may use it.

Toll roads in France

There are several toll roads in France. It is convenient and inexpensive to use them. Pay by cash or card.

Speed limits

More often than not, these new impressions of the trip will make you feel a bit reckless mad, making you willing to rush through streets of the city a little faster than the rules prescribe. Do not do this; the size of the fines will unpleasantlysurprise you. Therefore, try to keep within the specified speed limit:

If you sum up the information, the average speed of traffic in European cities is 50 km/h, in the countryside it's 80 to 100 km/h.

Age restrictions

Cheap car rental in France is possible for drivers 25 years old and over. Young drivers under 25 may be subject to an extra charge on the spot. Some car rental companies charge an additional fee for drivers aged 71-75 years. Age restrictions of a provider and the amount of an extra charge may be found out when booking a car in France on our website by going to the Age Restrictions section.

Extra charge for car return in other city

To find out the possibility and cost of returning a rented car in another city, check the box "return to another place" and search for options. In the search results, only those rental companies will be displayed that allow you to return cars to another location. The price indicated on our website already includes the one-way tariff.

Be careful on the road. Fines in France are quite high.

The lion's share of fines, which are received by travellers who came to France, are superimposed on them for non-compliance with the traffic rules. Be attentive and law-abiding. And in order not to get a fine being a pedestrian, you should be aware of the most significant monetary punishments in the city:


All this time, we've been speaking how to make the most of your trip budget. Now let's talk about how to avoid unexpected expenditures, for example, fines. Most of them can be avoided by following generally adopted rules of conduct, law-abiding behaviour, sticking to street cleanliness, and public order. However, be attentive to various warning signs on the streets and buildings, therefore, avoiding having lunch in the wrong place or accidentally entering a restricted area.

Once we tried to rent a car at the destination place and there were no options. We found a car from another provider right away via this site, paid for it and got the suitable car without any problems. So with the help of this site we solved our serious problem in just a few seconds. We are very glad to find such useful website.

Be sure to rent a car when traveling around Germany. See the quality of their perfect roads with your own eyes. I looked for options, chose and paid for a car via this resource. I found the right option quickly. The price wasn't very expensive, and there were a lot of advantages when traveling. I recommend it, try it! I think I'll continue to use this site. Considerable saving of time and money.
