Information about camping car hire in France and Europe – Day-tripper.net the web magazine for visitors to France.
In order to rent an car in France, you must be at least 20 years of age and have had a driving licence for at least one year. Visitors staying less than 90 days and carrying a valid EU, international, or U.S. (state) licence may drive in France. Companies generally prefer hirers to be at least 23 years old. It is mandatory to choose insurance coverage as offered in the rental terms.
Now that air travel can be so cheap when using budget airlines to go to France, cost effective camping car hire can mean more time on holiday rather than spent driving there.
Please also read the insurance exclusions. Do not take it for granted for example that windscreens are covered or have a small excess. Insurance policies offered by car hire companies are notorious for exemptions, get out clauses and vagueness.
