Getting Around France

France is the most visited tourist destinations in Europe,which is not surprising, given that it has so much on offer. From romantic Paris, the ski slopes of the Alps or to the jet set destination of the French Riviera, so book car hire early. With a first class road and rail network, it can be explored easily by hire car, or rail or best still with a combination of the two. Use the first class rail network to take you from Paris to Lyon or the central towns of Perpignan and Toulouse.

From Paris by Car Hire - If travelling from Paris by automobile, take A-12 to Caen, followed by the N-13 to Formigny, D-517 to St Laurent-sur-mer and D-514 to Colleville-sur-mer. The Northeast region which borders Germany, also known as the Champagne region. It has a strong German influence, so do not be surprised to see sauerkraut on the menus. The cities of this region are beautiful such as Nancy, Metz and Dijon.

Central France - This is where you will find the best cheeses, wines and local fare and is the main agricultural area of France France with the rich Loire Valley. This region is blessed with historic towns and chateau, each with their own unique tale to tell. Do take time and use your French car hire to visit some of the main towns in this region such as Burgundy and Limoges.

Northern France - The northern part of France has strong links with the war. Catching a ferry to Calais, or Cherbourg? If Cherbourg, then hire a car there, before driving on to Normandy. See the War Memorial and Cemetery that overlook Omaha Beach. The sheer size of the graveyard alone will leave you with an experience that is sure to stay with you.

Going Skiing? - Via Geneva or Grenoble Airport? If flying to Geneva, then their is a Geneva Airport French Side. Or if another airport, or train station, we have all you need for your alpine ski holidays, such as snow tyres, ski racks and snow chains. Please book estate cars, SUV's and MPV's as early as possible during high seasons.
