DRIVE Paris > Italy > Etc > Back to Paris

I'm flying in from Asia. Looking at maximising budget and places of visit by driving. I do understand that to return the rented car at different country will cost more.

But what if it's possible to drive a "round" trip from Paris to France? My final stays are to be in Paris for graduation.

Any kind-hearted soul to help us out with advice?

Paris (France)   Rome (Italy)   Venice (Italy)   Florence (Italy)   Nice (France)   Switzerland   Monaco   Milan (Italy)   Cannes (France)   Parma (Italy)   Bologna (Italy)

You could make this entire trip by train, and save lots of money and worry. Check for information on passes that will allow you to make stops in all the places you wish to visit. I recommend you swing through the Loire Valley on a bicycle tour, or visit the Burgundy region on your way into Switzerland. Skip Cannes and visit Nice instead.

Hi Marcus, this is usually possible to do but they do also apply a fee - in most cases this is for breakdown cover for the second country, possibly for insurance too.
Sixt provides more information, it looks to me like they charge a maximum of €19.99 for out of country when starting in France but obviously it's best to ask.
Hope that helps, Darren
