Standard capacity of a minivan in France is up to 9 people (8+1 formula), traditionally providing seven or eight passenger seats. The capacity of a minibus may vary from 9 to 15 people.

Please note, that in order to rent in France a vehicle with capacity which exceeds 8 passengers, you would need a driving license of the corresponding category.

Minivan dimensions are quite unusual for an ordinary driver, which sometimes leads to appearance of scratches and dents during unsuccessful manoeuvring or parking. Therefore, we encourage you to order full coverage of insurance franchise during your booking, or directly at the rental office in La Rochelle.

Before leaving the parking garage in La Rochelle, inspect the minivan for exteriour defects and other signs of damage together with the office representative and mark the found defects found in your rental documents. wishes you a great driving experience on the roads of France!

Driving Advices for France – Traffic Regulations and Road Usage Peculiarities
Previous hints
Despite a huge number of cars, traffic jams are rather rare on local roads, even in large cities. As a rule, traffic is slow on weekdays from 7:30 to 9:00 and from 17:30 to 19:30. On Friday evening traffic jams can appear a little earlier.
When entering a paid section of a road, do not forget to pay a particular attention to the special scoreboard as it indicates the amount of the toll. Drivers should also keep in mind that in different parts of the country toll roads are managed by different companies.
Parking a car for more than a day can be done in special stalls only. All major cities have special “horodateurs” parking lots that are equipped with special payment machines. This type of parking can be paid only by a special card. These cards are sold only in specialized tobacco shops, which are marked with the “tabacs” sign.

Near the square there are numerous restaurants, cafes and shops; life never stops here, day or night. The large clock tower is a notable architectural structure. Those are remains of fortifications, in 17th century it has housed city gates. The tower is decorated with a massive bell, weighing more than 2 tons; there was no large-scale reconstruction of the tower from the mid-18th century.
Among the religious sites, St. Louis Cathedral, which was completed in the mid-18th century, points out. It features luxurious facades decorated with graceful columns and pilasters. The interior of the Cathedral is more modest; it holds several important religious artifacts. A striking monument of the Renaissance is Henry II mansion, which was completed in 1555. Large-scale building with a cozy patio, carved cornices and graceful arches strikes with its unique style. There is a beautiful garden next to mansion; a walk there can also bring a lot of fun.

An emblematic landmark is the Pylori fountain located near the waterfront. Centuries ago, it was one of the most important sources of drinking water in the city. The access to the fountain was very difficult, so in 1722 it has been moved to another place. Water was provided to fountain, but it was no longer safe to drink, so after the last reconstruction the fountain has a purely decorative function. A trip to the island of RĂ© located three kilometers from the coast would be fascinating. The island can be reached by bridge or by boat, on site there are numerous interesting attractions.
