Car hire in France : important
To hire a car in France you must be at
least 21 years old; some car-hire firms will not hire
vehicles to drivers under 25. You must hold a valid drivers license from
your country of origin, and you must have held this licence for a year
You will need to show this license when picking up your vehicle.
Drivers from other European
Union countries and some other countries do not
need an International
driving licence. However they may need to show a passport or
national identity card.
Visitors from Asia,
Australia, Africa, and many parts of the Americas (including
some US states) must also have an International Driving License. This
is true whether hiring a rental car or driving a vehicle that is put at
your disposal under any other circumstances, i.e. lent by friend or
family, company car, or long-term leasing. It is advisable to check
with your local driving organisation, tour operator, or the local
French embassy if you are in any doubt as to whether you need this
document. An international driving license is a document you will need
to obtain in your own country, before coming to France.

terms of the vehicle rental contract guarantee a particular make of
vehicle and/or model.
