KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Versailles

  • Versailles is one of the most opulent and grandiose cities in Europe, with stunning political residences that deserve to be taken in at your leisure. While public transportation does exist, the municipality is larger than imagined and car hire in Versailles is a more independent way to take in attractions such as the magnificent Château de Versailles, with its mind-blowing gardens, the Hall of Mirrors, Versailles Chapel and the Royal Opera of Versailles. A stone’s throw from Paris, this beautiful part of France holds such a rich history. Park your hire car and take a horse-drawn carriage to the Trianon after seeing the main palace. Pop into the Versailles Cathedral, and if you feel like venturing into the big city, you can pop on the A86 and be in Paris in under an hour.
  • You can find Versailles car hire easily at Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG). The car hire counters are based in Arrivals in Terminals 1 and 2, and here you can find many companies to assist you. These include SIXT, Hertz, Virtuo, Rentscape, Thrifty, Rent@Car and more. It’s advisable to hire a GPS and switch it to English mode if your French is a bit rusty.
  • As Versailles was historically designed by a king for certain personal needs before the influx of residents, you will notice many of the streets are built in symmetrical grids that can best be described as rational and convenient. This road system has been the inspiration for newer cities over the years, as it proved to be so easy to navigate. You will enjoy using car hire in Versailles on well-maintained roads that offer good signage. The French drive on the right-hand side of the road, and you’ll need to stay under the blood alcohol level of 0.05% when driving. Driving rules are fundamentally the same as in the UK in terms of seatbelt use at all times and children being buckled up in the back of the car.
  • When using car hire in Versailles, you will probably find your car hire company will give you a manual transmission vehicle, as this is the standard in France. If you feel more relaxed with an automatic, ensure you have booked one beforehand, as they are not as common. The biggest challenge on the roads of Versailles will undoubtedly be traffic, particularly if you visit from Paris. Use a GPS to detect congestion and look for alternate routes to avoid it. Sundays are the worst for traffic, as Versailles makes a great day trip and tourists come from all over the country. Keep your eyes peeled for pedestrians, as Versailles also has a lot of foot traffic.
  • Book your car hire in Versailles at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Standard car hire in Versailles are around 10% cheaper than other car types, on average

If you have a bigger group, perhaps consider a sedan, but compact cars are perfect for all your driving needs.

  • What is the speed limit in Versailles?

    You will notice that Versailles, like much of Europe, observes the speed limit in kilometres. When you are driving in the city centre or near schools, keep it slow at 50 km/h (30 mph).

  • Where are the best places to park in Versailles?

    There are many public car parks in Versailles, and most of them are close to main attractions such as the palace, giving you park-and-walk options. Look for Place d'Armes Car Park, Avenue de Sceaux Car Park, Saint-Louis Car Park and Europe Car Park amongst many others. Expect to pay on average €0.75 (£0.65) per hour. Street parking is also available in a lot more places than one would expect in such a high-tourist area.

Pros:

The car was fine.

Cons:

We learned at pick-up that the office would be closed for a holiday and were instructed to park the car on one of 3 streets. After 3 attempts to find a place on one of these streets, I gave up and found another place, which I noted on the drop-off form. Also, I had to leave the keys at the information station at the gare. Not easy to reach. Basically, this is a cramped office that has little to offer in customer care.

Pros:

Clean car easy pick up and drop off

Cons:

Charged twice, by car rental company. Photo of car and mileage when picked up was not if the same car. Avis said needed to pay and sort out repaying car rentals.com on our own.

Cons:

I rented a car for 2 days through your search engine and i thought I got a good deal. When i went to pick the car It turned out that the insurance is higher the the rental fees which was not indicated in the offer. I didn't take the most expensive insurance to save money but ended paying the full guarantee of 850euro because of a small scratch of the door. I paid this guarantee on 29 August on the understanding that I would be reimbursed the difference for the cost of repair of this scratch. To date I have NOT heard back about my guarantee. Enterprise give themselves 3 months to respond! ! This is the worse service I ever had. I will never opt for Enterprise nor for your search engine. I hope this can help others. ..

Cons:

Looking back at the fine print, it does indeed note that operating hours on Saturdays close at noon. I don't usually read all of that though, and being new to France was quite surprised to arrive from my train at 1215 pm and find the office closed for the weekend! I ended up having to get a car elsewhere at much higher prices. Be warned!
