Cheap Car Hire in Paris
One of the most visited cities in the world, Paris receives millions of visitors every year. Many decide on the convenience of a hire car rather than attempting the intricate underground metro, buses, trains and numerous taxi companies that make up the city's transportation network. Both of the city's large international airports provide travellers with a selection of all major rental companies.
For those preferring to arrange a hire car from downtown Paris, the 27kms from Charles de Gaulle Airport or the 16kms from Orly Airport can be made in less comfort upon the interconnecting underground metro system or with considerably less serenity in a taxi. The option of a private hire car grants visitors an element of security and freedom difficult to experience on public transit options.
Touring Paris by hire car is sightseeing in luxury. Neighbourhoods, historical buildings, grand boulevards, museums, resorts and famous landmarks that lie on the city's outskirts become reasonable destinations with the convenience of a hire car. In some cases, lengthy trips of multiple connections on the metro or an uncomfortably expensive taxi fare could be required to visit these places without a rental car.
Paris experiences warm summers and rather chilly winters. Rainfall of between 100 and 200 millimetres per month occurs throughout the year, with slightly more falling during the spring. The highest temperatures are in July and August, when the mercury can reach 30°C, while January and February see minimums of around 10°C.
