You may drive with a valid U.S. driver's license in France. In addition, it is recommended (not required) to carry an International Driving Permit or attach a French translation to your US driver's license. You must also be at least 18 years old and hold a valid credit card.

There are several good car hire companies throughout Europe, I would recommend one of the following;

ADA ? 0825 169 169
Avis ? 0820 150 505
Europcar ? 0870 607 500
Hertz ? 0720 903 905

The speed limit is 50 km/h (30 mph) in the towns, and 90 km/h (55 mph) on the open roads.

We chose to rent a car and drive from Den Haag to Southwest France as it was the most economical and easiest way to get to and around France.
