Paris Travel Planner   Driving a Car in Paris, France
Want to enjoy your visit to Paris? Don't drive in the city.




With its narrow streets and difficult parking, it would be crazy to drive a car from place to place in Paris.

Even for excursions, the best way to go is on the extensive Métro, train and bus network, or by taxi.

Rental cars are expensive, fuel is expensive, and traffic fines are positively breathtaking.

Paris Traffic

For excursions from Paris, some can be reached easily by RER suburban train or Transilien train.

Here's an idea: pick up your rental car at an airport or train station located in the direction you'll be going. That way, you won't have to find your way out of traffic-thronged central Paris.

In fact, what we do is take a train to our first destination (or at least to a convenient point outside of Paris) and rent a car there. Many cities and towns can be reached by train directly from Charles de Gaulle Airport.
