Long-term car rental in France

Is it possible to rent a car by the month, or longer, in France?

30 October 2019

Yes, and, generally speaking, the longer the rental, the lower the daily rate.

For example, supermarket SuperU advertises rentals for six months from €5 a day.

Europcar and Avis are among many firms with such deals. Comparison sites such as and can be helpful to track down a bargain.

Watch out for hidden extras, though, such as usage allowance and insurance conditions.

Insurance will cover third-party damage but the excess may leave you liable for as much as €1,000 of damage to the vehicle.
