France travel by car

Travel by car in france


About 45 airports connect the different cities of France. From Paris Orly or Paris Charles de Gaulle, the Parisian airports, you can reach Nice, Toulouse, Lyon, Marseille, Strasbourg or Bordeaux in little more than an hour.

Visiting the hinterland of the Toulouse region or touring the Breton heathlands is even easier by car. If you hold a driving license obtained in Europe or an international license if you are not European, you can drive in France.

Do you have your own car? You have the right to bring it to France and drive it. However, after six months of stay, you will have to apply for an international license and your vehicle will have to pass a technical inspection.

Requirements to enter france from spain

Attention to the errors, there are fewer exits and more spaced so if you make a mistake and instead of going to Rennes, go to Nantes, you may have to circulate 10 or 15 kilometers before being able to change direction.

You can move by car, train or bus. But another option is to rent a motorhome or campervan in France, to make a road trip with the house on your back in a very safe country and with many well equipped campsites where you can spend the night. Reserve your motorhome or campervan in advance and pick it up in the main cities and airports of France. To rent a motorhome or campervan in France, click here.

The jewel of the République, the TGV (Train de Grande Vitesse), pioneer in high speed is the key instrument to travel quickly and comfortably across the country. It is also an idea to take it to visit London, from Paris it takes only 2 hours and a half.

The train is, in any case, indispensable if you want, from Paris, to visit Amiens, Orleans, Strasbourg, Rennes, Futuroscope, Lille, Normandy, Lorraine, London, Luxembourg, Germany, Belgium or Holland.

Travel through France

On March 14, 2022, the presentation of the vaccination passport in those places where it was required (leisure and cultural centers, commercial catering, trade fairs and professional shows, etc.) ceased to be compulsory. Similarly, the health passport ceased to be in force on August 1, 2022.

Since the beginning of the crisis, the health control system has made it possible to preserve our health system and to delay the arrival on French territory of variants with worrying characteristics. This system ceased to be in force on August 1, 2022.

However, in the event of the emergence of a dangerous variant, the entry into French territory of travelers from countries considered to be at risk could again be subject to the presentation of a negative virological test.

For information on health regulations concerning entry into the territory of other countries, please consult the Travel Advice section of the website of the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs.

So that you can see day by day what we did and if you like it, I leave you what we saw day by day and the corresponding link to each post. Although I have counted the individual posts by areas, I wanted to make an index of days so you can get an idea of what to visit in France if you do a road trip day by day.

Oh my goodness, what a great hotel. It is in a wonderful family building converted into a hotel. The rooms are incredible and the breakfast in the garden, what can I tell you. Walking distance to the center and with wonderful hostesses. Nothing more to ask for. Price: 70€ two people with breakfast.

Although a priori it is more expensive than the others, 125€, its location in the center of Rouen and its wonderful window are worth it. A large, bright apartment, with washing machine, dryer and kitchen allowed us to do the laundry and cook for a baby ready to travel by car to France.

Very kind also, they gave us to choose the room we wanted, as we were traveling with baby. We chose one with a terrace overlooking the river – fabulous! What is not so fabulous was the price, 100 € without breakfast.
