car rental

Does anyone know if it is possible to rent a car in London and drop it off in Paris. Ive had no luck finding one.

I feel like I've read somewhere that several of the majors offer a "trade-in" at either of the Channel Tunnel. Perhaps not what you are looking for if you wanted to avoid having to shlep all the stuff out of the car, on to the train, and back into another car.

And surely they charge a pretty penny for it.

Perhaps if you told us the context of why you want to do this, additrional ideas would be offered.

Best wishes,

Rex

Thanks Rex,,, I thought it would be cheaper and we would be about to see more of the countryside if we made the trip by car.

The idea really isn't practical. You could do one of the "car swaps" (because you DEFINITELY don't want to be driving a UK car on the right hand side of the road in France)

But there really isn't enough "scenery" between Calais and Paris to make the drive worthwhile. It would take a LOT longer to drive than to take the train all the way, and would probably be more expensive.
