Where can I park my rental car in Paris?

Signpost in Paris

Travelling in a rental car in Paris is not rocket science. A wide range of car parks, where you can park your rental car from just one euro per hour, makes it easy for you to get to most of the beautiful sights in the city. However, if you are in the suburbs and cannot find a parking garage, then it is advisable to pay attention to the lane markings, which tell you whether or not you can park your car there. A general stopping ban applies under bridges and in tunnels or underpasses.

Color of lane marking Meaning of lane marking
Blue Limited or free parking with parking disc allowed
Yellow dashed No-parking zone
Yellow Holding and parking ban

Tolls in and around Paris

Most French motorways are subject to a toll, so it is advisable to plan your trip in advance if you want to go outside of Paris with your rental car. In most cases, the toll is either payable when driving onto the highway or a ticket must be drawn to pay the fee when leaving.

What road signs should I know before driving a rental car in Paris?

If you are not proficient in French, it is advisable to memorise some traffic signs before starting your journey. The most important traffic signs are listed below:

French English
Toutes Directions All directions
Rappel Reminder (mostly at speed limits)
Centre Ville Direction city centre
Passage interdit Do not pass
Ralentir Drive slowly
Serrez a droite Stay on the right
Déviation Detour
Vous n'avez pas la priorité No right of way
Fin d'interdiction de dépasser End of overtaking ban

What are the options for my rental car?


With the right insurance through Paris

With the right insurance through Paris

Even if you drive very carefully and safely, damage may occur to the rental car. To ensure that you can continue your journey without stress, we recommend that you take out fully comprehensive insurance without excess. In the event of damage, you will have to advance the costs. However, you will be reimbursed by your insurance company after your arrival back home. Simply submit the relevant receipts when you return from Paris.

One-way rental

For those who want to do a road trip to Paris with a rental car, the one-way rental might be the best option. This means that you can pick up your rental car at the location of your choice and return it conveniently to another location.

Additional driver

What does the additional driver option actually mean? If you specify another person as an additional driver when booking, you can take turns driving the rental car. Distances in France can be very long and if you are planning to do a road trip through different cities. For example, you can visit other cities like Brussels and Versailles. 

So that the driver can sit back and relax, too, you can simply hand over the steering wheel to the additional driver.
