When you need a one-way car rental in France, Sixt has affordable options to meet your needs. Our one-way rental deals allow you to pick a car up from one location and return it in another without breaking the bank. In some cases, you can even rent a car in France and return it in another country. We make it easy to do a one-way rental for a road trip, relocation or to save time. Below you will find an overview of the vehicles we offer, route ideas, and rules and restrictions.
We offer a wide selection of luxury vehicles for one-way rentals. However, there are some restrictions. Only passenger vehicles in and up to a full-size category (F***) with a maximum of 7 seats can travel across country borders within Europe. Vehicles of the following makes can travel only to the countries of Zone 1 (see below for a list of country zones): Mercedes Benz, BMW, Audi, Volvo, Jaguar, Land Rover Range Rover, and Mini. For questions about qualifying vehicles and availability, contact the branch where you wish to pick up your rental car.
Getting from France to another country is easy with a one-way rental from Sixt. With our suggested routes below, you can find your way from France to the UK, to Spain, or to Italy.
Unfortunately, due to insurance regulations and costs for returning vehicles, sometimes there are fees or restrictions with one-way car hire. However, at Sixt we are always upfront with these charges and there are no hidden fees! The one-way fee depends on the location of the pickup station and the destination. Simply enter your desired pick-up and drop-off locations in the booking function at the top of the page. You will see a pop-up notification if a one-way car rental between the two locations is not possible. The one-way rental fee (if any) will be added to the total amount payable at the end of the booking process. For unannounced one-way rentals, we reserve the right to charge an additional fee, so be sure to plan your trip accordingly to avoid any extra costs.
In general the rental vehicle may only be used in the state of pick-up and the surrounding geographical area (Region) as specified in the table below.
The vehicle selection can restrict travel to certain countries. For a description of these restrictions on admission, the countries are divided into three zones:
|Pick-up Zone:||Can drive in:|
|Zone 1:||Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Gibraltar, Great Britain, Ireland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Monaco, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, San Marino, Sweden, Switzerland, Spain and Vatican City.|

|Zone 3:||All countries which are not in zone 1 or 2.|
Entry into any country in zone 3 is not permitted. In case of offence against cross border and territorial restrictions all insurances lose their validity.
