France is such a wonderful country to explore by car, and a car rental from National allows you to go at your own speed and stop off where you want to. Also, different sizes of vehicles mean that you can take all your family and luggage with you without a problem.


France is a diverse and fascinating country, rich in culture, history, landscapes, not to mention the world-famous food and drink. There are many things to do and see in your cheap National vehicle. Some of the very best as part of your car hire experience include visiting Mont st Michel, a beautiful rocky island just off the Normandy coast, or even the Normandy beaches, the scene of the second world war D-Day landings. Of course, there's vibrant Paris if you feel like driving into the capital. Close by, there's Disneyland Paris, which is especially great if you have kids. Maybe you'll drive through the Loire valley, visit Provence or some of France's stunning towns and cities such as Carcassonne, Gordes or Cannes? Explore wonderful Brittany with its beaches, lovely countryside and superb regional foods.


Whether you take the paid-for French autoroutes or meander through the main roads and back roads, a cheap car hire holiday means you can discover the huge diversity and variety that France offers. You can put together your own itinerary or just drive as the mood takes you, stopping at campsites, B&B's or even luxury hotels in popular places. Most holidays by car in France start along the north coast, working southwards with overnight stops and breaks in your journey to soak up the marvelous surroundings. Travel across the country by whatever route you choose, through sleepy villages, past wonderful chateaux and wheat and sunflower fields. You'll also experience dramatic mountainscapes and breathtaking coastal routes where the sun always seems to shine.


Car hire with National means you can enjoy some incredible road trips. One amazing drive is a circular route from Paris taking in Chartres, Le Mans, Rennes, Caen, Rouen and Paris. Another trip starts in the South of France and runs along the coast. Begin with your hired car in Montpellier and finish in Nice, either travelling through Provence or hugging the coastline. Alternatively, in the South West of France, drive from Toulouse and admire the reddish-pink bricks. Enjoy the wine in Bordeaux and the Biarritz beaches. Finally, take Napoleon’s Route. The large golden eagle markers lead you from the Alps in Grenoble to the Cannes and the Riviera. Cheap car rental from National really is an excellent way to see France.
