Car Rentals near Paris

Jump to last reply

A couple of years ago, I got great advice when we were renting a car to tour Tuscany. It was suggested that we rent the car in Chiusi since this is both a major train intersection and has easy car rentals. Worked great. We then returned the car to Florence airport, thus avoiding the traffic cameras which have devastated people trying to drive into Florence.

This year, we're planning several weeks in France, part of which we want to use traveling around Normandy. We would also like to drive from Honfleur to Belgium, probably staying in Bruge or Antwerp prior to going on to Amsterdam. We're thinking we'd really only need the rental car in Normandy since it seems that trains in this area use a hub and spoke system requiring way too long to get between even neighboring towns.

Suggestions would be appreciated. Is a car really required to see Normandy, and if so, where should we rent it?

Thanks in advance. Great advice is so appreciated.
