Lyon, France: Family Car Rental
The segments of standard, intermediate and full-size cars in France traditionally include the following vehicles: VW Passat, Renault Scenic, Peugeot 508, Ford Mondeo, Hyundai Sonata, Mercedes A Class and others.

The process of a car reservation on consists of 3 simple steps: (1) search by the dates and pick-up location, (2) car type selection, and (3) booking form completion. After the booking, you will receive a rental voucher at your e-mail address.

Before selecting a specific model to book, check your planned routes. If you are going to drive mostly within the Lyon borders, choose a car of 'Standard' or 'Compact' types. In case you plan long cross-countries trips or mountain adventures, the more comfortable and powerful 'Fullsize' models would become a better choice.

If you need a car with an automatic gearbox, try to make a reservation at least a few days before the pick-up date, since confirmation of such models in Lyon might be delayed for a day or two.

Upon the return of your car, carefully check that the total payment amount (invoice) is computed according to the original rental conditions.

We wish you 'smooth', secure and safe roads in Lyon!

Driving Advices for France – Traffic Regulations and Road Usage Peculiarities
Previous hints
Savvy drivers are recommended to pay attention to gas stations located in the territory of major shopping malls. Gas stations near such shopping centers as Auchan, E.Leclerc, Carrefour, Intermarche and Casino are considered the cheapest. When tucking a full tank at them, you can save up to 15 euro.
If your way implies driving through numerous crossroads with circular movement, you should consider checking whether you have enough fuel in the tank. The situations, when foreign drivers move in the circle a dozen of times before leaving it are not uncommon – the traffic in large cities is really dense and rapid. Of course, it’s extremely undesirable that a car will stall because it has suddenly run out of fuel.
Fans of traveling to unusual places are recommended to visit the tunnel of Mont Blanc as this is one of the most interesting local roads. The tunnel is made under Mont Blanc Mount and its length is 11.5 kilometers. The tunnel connects France and Italy, so the road is a paid one.

A walk around the city will give a lot of unforgettable experiences. You could see beautiful historic buildings and interesting monuments at every step in Lyon. One of the most popular excursions remains the tour to Notre-Dame de Fourviere. It was built in the second half of the 19th century; during its existence it has changed its original look completely. The architectural style of the basilica is very special; it represents a unique combination of Christian and Byzantine traditions. The top of one of Basilica’s towers is equipped with a viewing platform from which you can admire the panorama of the city.
Amphitheatre Gallo-Romain is located on the hill of Fourvière. Its construction took place during the reign of Tiberius Emperor. In ancient times there were large-scale entertainment and other community events on that site. The Museum of history is an important attraction that can’t be ignored.

The collection represented in the museum covers the large-scale period from the early Middle Ages to the 19th century. During the tour, visitors will learn about the most important events that have influenced the fate of the city. The building, which houses the museum, is also of great interest.
