Renting an electric cart at Versailles if not handicapped

Jump to last reply

I've been reading tips about visiting Versailles and preparing for the large lines and great distances required to walk the gardens. I keep finding recommendations to rent the electric golf type carts to speed up your visit around the grounds. Most of those who were recommending the carts were simply wanting to speed up the tour of the gardens...and weren't handicapped.

After digging around at the Versailles web site I finally found the brief info they provided about the carts that stated....

"Electric vehicle hire allows you to follow five itineraries (discovering the Gardens, Trianon and the Queen’s Hamlet, tour of the Grand Canal, tour of the entire Estate); €32 an hour, vehicles leaving from the North Terrace, accessible to people with limited mobility, mandatory presentation of a driving license"

So, the question is would they rent the carts to people without limited mobility? And is this done often, or will we get angry stares from people who would think it rude. I guess I'm trying to understand if many people rent the carts or just those who need them for physical reasons.

I'd also like to see the map that outlines the routes you can take with the cart. I understand you can't use them everywhere and must park them to walk to certain places. I just can't find the map online.
