Paris Car Rental - Automatic Transmission

Jump to last reply

I plan to rent a car in Paris for a trip to Normandy. Since I've heard that cars with automatic shift are hard to come by, I decided to call both Europcar and Sixt about the availability.

Sixt - I was told that compact cars with auto shift are very rare and should call a few days before pick up day to confirm. It can never be guranteed. However, cars in the luxury category (BMW, Mercedes) with auto shift are more abundant but pricy (double the cost)

Europcar - I could not get a hold of anyone calling 3 different locations.. no English prompt either.

Unfortunately, driving a manual shift is not feasible as we are not mechanically inclined.

Any tips?? Thanks for your help!
