Need a car in Europe?

If you live outside the EU, a tax-free tourist car lease can be much cheaper than renting for visits of 21+ days--especially if you start or end your trip in France.

Minimum driver age is 18, there' s no upper age limit, and rates include insurance. To compare vehicles and rates, see:
