Getting around France. France is the most visited tourist destinations in Europe. Not surprising, given that it has so much on offer. From romantic Paris, the ski slopes of the Alps, to the jet set destination of the Riviera. 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.
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.
Paris Car HireIf 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, Nancy and Dijon.
Central France The main agricultural area is Central France and the Rich Loire Valley. This is where you will find the best cheeses, wines and local fare. 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.
Do take time to choose the car hire in France. This will best serve your needs. The mini, economy range is ideal for short breaks with limited touring. If staying a little longer, the economy car hire to intermediate range may be more suitable. For the larger group, select an MPV or a Van with seating for 7 or 9 passengers. Special occasion? Then why not consider a convertible or a 4x4. Diesel engines are also available, giving very good economy over large distances.
