Location information for Paris

Car hire in Paris

The culture and fashion centre of France, and for that matter the world, is the capital city of Paris. The city has been the destination of choice for European travellers for at least the past two centuries. Paris has plenty of tourism attractions, both in its central arrondissements (districts) and on the outskirts. Although driving in Paris can be a little challenging at times, it is still a fun and convenient means of exploration. Compare cheap car hire in Paris here for the best self-drive rental deals.

Why visit

Paris has traditionally been a draw for tourists and lovers thanks to its eclectic mix of entertainment venues, restaurants, museums and heritage buildings. An evening at the legendary Moulin Rouge, walking the historic streets of the Left Bank and the Latin Quarter, and visiting the Louvre Museum are highlights of any Paris trip. The Metro is an easy option for reaching city centre draws, yet car rental in Paris is far better for travelling to the more distant palaces, parks and forests in this area of France.


Paris has excellent public transportation links, boasting two major airports and six mainline railway terminals. Paris Orly Airport handles the bulk of the city's European flight arrivals and is on the RER suburban train network. Within the city, the metro and the Velib bicycle sharing scheme are among transport options. Many renowned companies also provide self-drive hire vehicles in the city, great for motorists wishing to travel farther afield.

What to see and do

The Palace of Versailles, located just 20kms from the city centre, is one of France's most iconic sites. It is easily reached using Paris car hire. Fontainebleau Palace and its adjacent forest make for another great daytrip, which could be combined with a visit to Orleans, where museums, St Croix Cathedral and the Joan of Arc statue are among the unique draws. Orleans is also the ideal base for visiting Loire Valley stately homes, such as the Chateau de Chambord.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is CompareCarHire.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours). Which car rental companies are compared by CompareCarHire.co.uk? at this location
