Top tips for renting a car in Provence

  • Provence has a large number of vehicle rental locations that are available to travelers — more than 20, in fact. These locations are dotted all along the coast. This means it may be easy for you to pick up or drop off a vehicle at any point along your journey. However, you will want to do a bit of research in advance if you intend to have different pickup and drop-off locations, as not all rental car companies have presences where you might be headed.
  • Located on the southern coast of France, Provence has a beautiful and temperate climate. With its great weather and picturesque scenery, it’s worth considering a convertible for your journey if one is made available from whichever rental car company you’ve selected.
  • Throughout Provence, as well as throughout the rest of France, you’ll find that the roadways make use of roundabouts more frequently than the traffic lights and stop signs that might be found in the United States. This makes for a good, continuous flow of traffic. However, this also means that you may want to take some time considering your route before you hop behind the wheel so that you don’t miss your turn-off points at the various roundabouts along the way.
  • As in the United States, drivers sit in the left-hand side of the vehicle and drive on the right- side of the road. However, while in the U.S. it is legal to turn right on a red light, this move is actually illegal in France. Upon coming to a red light, you must stop and await the appropriate traffic signal before making your turn.

In fact, these locations may be the most desirable sites. What’s more, having a vehicle rental for the duration of your trip will give you the liberty to navigate the area at whatever pace you wish.

    With so much to look at while you’re traveling throughout Provence, you’ll want to make a point to keep your focus on the road. The varying terrain as well as the abundance of lavender fields, vineyards, coastal views, valleys, and gorges make for spectacular sights, so if your goal is to take them in, allot more time for your drive so that you can make stops along the way. Other motorists will thank you for this consideration. When navigating any cities, you’d be wise to do some research in advance; not all cities allow vehicles in the city centers, and, in those that do, you might find that the traffic patterns are an array of one-way streets.

  • How old do you have to be to rent a car in Provence?

    The ability to rent a vehicle in France depends on a few variables that are typically dictated by the rental car agency.

What’s more, some rental agencies may have a rule that states that you must have had a valid license for at least a year prior to your rental period beginning.
