Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Paris car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Paris.
Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Paris car rental.

Parisian streets certainly favor a smaller vehicle such as a sedan, coupe, or two-door vehicle, as many of the older streets are quite compact and narrow. Finding streetside parking would also be much more difficult in a larger vehicle.

Like many of the European nations, France has high taxes on petrol. For drivers in Paris, that means the average cost per gallon of petrol is around €4.80 ($5.50). It should also be noted that, when purchasing petrol in Paris, you will be purchasing it in liters, not gallons.
Parking in Paris is scarce and can be difficult for those not used to big city parking. In general, streetside parking and underground parking lots are the main options available. Parking costs are significantly more expensive in the central arrondissements, so for those who don’t mind taking the subway, parking in the outlying arrondissements is a good option. Travelers should also note that parking is free in most areas of the city on Sundays and at night.
