Rental cars with automatic transmission

Jump to last reply

Does anyone know any rental car companies in France which don't charge an arm and a leg for automatic transmissions? I've gone through all the local ones I know of here in Tours with not much luck, but I could possibly take a train and pick one up somewhere else. I've been thinking of seeing a little bit of Normandy one of these days and it's a bit of a hassle by train, especially since I'm not great at planning things in advance.

I don't know how much difference this makes to French rental agencies, but I have a French driver's licence and am over 25, although I've still got a couple of years of the 'probationary' period left on my licence (because I got the licence in the last couple of years, not because I've committed any infractions). I don't suppose anyone knows if agencies don't like renting to people in that case?

I actually took manual transmission driving lessons in preparation for moving here, but I'm still hopeless at it :( Put that together with driving on the other side of the road and in a foreign country and I think I'd be a nervous wreck!

Cheers :)
