Car rental France

France is a country located in Central Europe. It haves a population of 63,460,000 people and it is using the Euro (€). In France you have to drive on the right direction of the road.

To rent a car in France you will need an identity card or a passport, a valid credit card and a driving license with latin characters. If you do not have it, you can purchase an International Driving Permit before going to France. The minimum age for renting a car in France depends on the car rental company's policy, although driving is permitted to everyone with a valid driving license and older than 18 years old. When driving in roads with no signals, you have to give way to the right. Traffic in the city centres can be overwhelming in peak hours and many of the streets are narrow, one way, cobblestone streets. Parking in the city centres is almost impossible, and in many cases illegal, so it is preferable to use parking lots. Most of France's highways have tolls. Some of them have entrance tolls, but in most of them you take a ticket at the entrance and you pay at the exit an amount that depends on the distance covered. Don't lose your entrance ticket, for if you do, it will be assumed you have entered the motorway at the farthest station from your exit, thus you will be charged the maximum toll possible. The fuel types are unleaded gasoline, diesel and liquid gas. There are gas station at supermarkets around the city, at the highways and some at the centre of the city. Most of them accept credit cards and have do-it-yourself pumps.
