Why should you organise to hire a car in Toulouse with DriveNow before you set off?
Can I hire a car in Toulouse if I am under 25?
You must be at least 21 to hire a car in France. However, those between 21 - 25 may need to pay a youth driver's surcharge. The amount charged will vary from supplier to supplier so include your details in the comment area when making your DriveNow booking and our Reservations team will follow up and contact you.
Will I need an international driver's licence (IDP)?
If the licence of your home country is printed using the Latin alphabet, then you do not need an IDP and can drive in France for one year using your foreign licence.
However, if this is printed in another alphabet you will then need to provide an IDP to act as a translation of your licence.
What are the speed limits in France?
Along highways and freeways, you should keep to 130kmh and drop this down to 110kmh along rural expressways. When driving in urban traffic, it is best to keep to 50kmh.
There are strict speed limits you will need to stick to when you are on the roads. On highways you will need to keep to, or below, 130kmh and on rural expressways this reduces to 110kmh. When you drive through urban traffic, stick to 50kmh. Speed limits are reduced in the rain.
What other rules should I be aware of?
In France there is a requirement that drivers and passengers wear seatbelts in both the front and rear seats.
If you have children under age 13, the driver is responsible for their safety.
Children under age 10 are not allowed to travel in the front seat and must be placed in an appropriate booster seat. These can be included as an additional extra when you pick up your car in Toulouse.
Are there any tips for driving on French roads?
When you travel along urban roads, you must give way to traffic coming from the right - there is "priorite a droite".
Some roundabouts are signposted so look out for "vous n'avez pas la priorite" and "cedez le pasage" which indicate you must give way to traffic on the roundabout. If you don't spot these signs then traffic entering the roundabout has right of way.
