Important information about Nice car hire

A vacation in Nice would almost be incomplete if you didn’t visit some of its iconic attractions such as Promenade des Anglais, the Castle Hill of Nice, and the world-famous Old Town. You will want to keep your eye out for Voie Pierre Mathis and Prom des Anglais which are some of the major roads that connect these tourist attractions. All these would be easy to reach if you get hired cars in Nice. This is because you have the flexibility to travel anywhere you want to at any time and the convenience of not having to wait for public transport. If you’re worried about costs, then you’ll be happy to find that there are cheap hired cars in Nice; you can easily find them in the over 20 different car hire locations in Nice and you can choose from a variety of options including electric car rentals.

Is it worthwhile renting a car while visiting Nice?

Parking isn’t a huge concern around Nice as there are plenty of parking spaces around the streets as well as parking lots and garages where you can leave your Nice car rentals. While most of the street parking spaces are usually metered, they are free every night and on Sundays as well. In addition, the city is walkable as there are pedestrian lanes and crossings around town, so you can leave your hired cars in Nice at one place and walk around the city centre. The car becomes crucial when you want to visit other attractive places outside of town, such as the sandy Beaches of Saint-Laurent-du-Var, and the Monaco Grand Prix, which is usually held in the streets of Monte Carlo. Both destinations are roughly under an hour away from Nice.

What different driving laws should I keep in mind when driving in Nice?

Before you book hired cars in Nice, it is important to keep in mind that they have very different driving laws from what you’re used to. For example, the law requires all cars to have hazard triangles as well as reflective jackets for all occupants at all times, so make sure you have those before hitting the road. Also, talking on the phone is illegal, and drivers should not even have any type of hands-free or Bluetooth devices on. Right-hand drive cars are also required to have headlamp beam deflectors for the safety of other drivers on the road. Other than these laws, the common universal traffic laws such as those concerning driving under the influence and speeding apply. Be sure to look up the latest traffic laws before hitting the road to avoid bringing back a ticket as a souvenir.

What kind of driving license do you need when renting a car in Nice?

For you to get rental cars in Nice, you’ll have to provide a valid driving license whose expiry date doesn’t come before the end of the rental agreement period. The license should be in good standing. If you are from a different country outside the EU, your license should be written in the Roman alphabet, and if not, you should have an international driving license with you. Foreigners may also be required to show a valid passport, also not expiring before the rental agreement period is over. There is also an age restriction of 21 whereby anyone younger than that may not be allowed to rent a car even if the licenses and passports are in good standing.
