Luggage in rental car while touring Normandie and Loire Valley

Jump to last reply

We are taking a driving trip through France in October. In some cases we arrive at a destination and stay 2 or 3 days. That is not the problem as we would go to our hotel, unload luggage and then sight-see..... What concerns me is in the areas that we are doing some stops along the way with luggage in the van......How to secure the luggage?

We will be driving from Luxembourg city to Vimi France with a lunch stop along the way in Belgium.

We also plan to drive from Dieppe to Honfleur and do some stops along the way.

Also the D-Day beaches are stops we want to make along our drive to Mont St. Michel.

We also have a stop in Fougeres on our way to the Loire where we will stay in one place for a few days/


I am really worried after reading posts on several sites about stolen luggage from rental cars.

Besides making sure that nothing is left within sight....what to do to avoid theft? We will have a minivan....no trunk.....3 to 4 pieces of luggage......Any ideas would be helpful.


Is it a real concern? Does it happen a lot? Hubby hopes that the reports I've read are exaggerated. Please put my mind at ease or scare me....LOL

I always have all my valuables with me, no computers or tablets left in the car or even coming with us....all that will be in this luggage is our clothes and toiletries. Nothing fancy.

Thanks for any and all help.
