Click on the questions below and read the answers...

Being a US or Canadian or Australian citizen, traveling to France as a tourist, you only need a valid passport, no visa.

For other citizenships, please use our visa widget to get the most updated information.

Make sure that your passport's expiration date complies with the laws of your country and of France.

For most countries, your passport needs to be valid for at least 3 to 6 months beyond your last day in France.

At time of planning your trip, you should check the last update on your country's foreign services and travel website.

Rule is: as long as your drivers license is written in roman alphabet, it will be accepted by a car rental agency.

So: US, Canadian, Australian drivers licenses are accepted and you don't need to get an international drivers license. 

Be careful, you licenses & passports need to be valid - check the expiration dates before traveling. 

In such case, we recommend that you contact us on the emergency phone line and we will assist you and put you in contact with the right administration.
