Paris Car Rental with SIXT

SIXT offers an impressive number of conveniently located branches for Paris car rental. We have locations at major transportation hubs like Paris-Charles-de-Gaulle Airport and Gare du Nord train station, and in popular tourist areas like Versailles. In fact, the process of booking with SIXT is seamless, whether through our app or website. Our in-branch rental agents speak English and can help you decide whether to rent a premium station wagon, to take you and friends northwest to Rouen, or an economy car, to traverse narrow streets in nearby Chartres.  


SIXT Services in Paris

Travelers looking to use Paris as a launching pad to visit other regions within France may want to book a long-term rental and opt for a standard sedan for the trip. However, if you need a weekend rental with more cargo and legroom for a group trip with friends, a minivan, a van or SUV will accommodate you well. Professionals traveling to Paris for work may just need a one-day rental and, for that, a luxury sedan may be the most suitable option. Whatever your reason for needing to rent a car in Paris, enhance your trip with bookable extras, like an additional driver, child seats and GPS.

What to do while in Paris

Paris is a vast city with an overwhelming number of actives for visitors. Block several hours one day to go to the stunning Musée du Louvre and catch a glimpse of iconic works by Reubens and Rembrandt. Or book tickets to Palais Garnier - Opera National de Paris for some more culture. For stunning architecture and beautiful gardens, you can easily visit Versailles with your Paris car rental. The town of Chartres is a great day trip from Paris and known for its stunning cathedral, museums and medieval architecture. 

Summer in Paris

To get the most from your summer trip to Paris, start your days early with a coffee and a croissant at a café, then head to one of the many museums or take a long walk along the Seine. During the summer months, the Jardin des Tuileries also hosts a carnival with a Ferris wheel that offers views of the cityscape. Come evening time, enjoy a bottle of wine at one of the many bars along the river, or book a table at Le Jules Verne, which sits within the Eiffel Tower.

We were very well served: we had a crack in the windshield, and sixt replaced the car as soon as we signaled the problem.

On return, Karim explained us how credit card insurance worked and was very friendly with us (even offering a coffee!)

Renting cars is usually a stressful experience but I was shown so much patience and kindness with Sixt that I HAD to write a review. The car we got was clean and new, and even when I left something in the car at the end of the rental, staff members assured me they’ll hold on to the item until I could collect it the next day.


They never tried to force any expensive insurance plans or options on me, and even upgraded me when the car I rented was unavailable. Shown genuine smiles and politeness and was in and out in 10 minutes. Great job Sixt!

Very professional and nice :) new and clean car at a good price.

Branch has EVs available, but they come with a charging card that is pretty useless outside Paris, plus Sixt makes you pay for the charging card! An EV rental should always come with a charging card that is widely used throughout the country, and the card should be included as standard within the rental as you cannot expect a visitor to bring their own local card.

Other than that, service by local staff was very good, thank you.

Contrary to the reviews mentioned I found Sixit Paris 8 very customer friendly. Although initially the people on cashier were cold but the car examiner Christian was wonderful, he spoke well and also was professional in his approach
