Car hires in Marseille: practical information

Where to rent a car in Marseille

The south of France is your oyster when you book flight tickets from London to Marseille. As the second most populated city in France, you can bet there is plenty to see, do and experience.

Driving in Marseille: parking and other tips

One thing to keep in mind when travelling around in France is that the highways are very pricey and the toll charges can really rack up if you're not careful. On the other hand they are fast and very efficient. Parking in Marseille is easily compared to the national highways: they're safe, efficient and costly. Since Marseille has mostly narrow streets in the city centre, it's best to keep your affordable car hire in Marseille parked, only using it to take day trips outside of the city.
