In this section, you will learn how to successfully hire a car in the city of Nice. Please, learn it in details in order not to face up with problems.

Nice is one of the pearls of the French Cote d’-Azur. It attracts travelers from different continents. This is really worth spending a holiday in this city. But if you want to travel around the city suburbs, there is no better decision than hiring a car. Hiring a car within one and a half or even two months before the start of the trip means finding the combination of the convenience of the chosen car and its cost and the necessary rental term.

The Nice Cote d’-Azur airport accepts flights and passengers at two terminals. The counters of car hire companies are located at both of the terminals. Judging by the passenger flow, this airport is second only to two other Paris ‘colleagues’, the Charles de Gaulle airport and the Orly Airport. That is why you had better get acquainted with the plan of the terminal beforehand in order not to lose courage and precious time. Since the airport is located directly in Nice, you cannot hurry up with renting a car. You can reach the hotel you are going to stay at by taxi, and after that solve the car rental issue.

If you are planning to visit Nice during the high season, you need to take into account that the rental cost of all cars will be higher than usually. The average prices for car rental are the following:

Category 3 days’ rental term 7 days’ rental term
Mini 110-200 Euro 170-210 Euro
Economy 130-310 Euro 200-310 Euro
Standard 230-370 Euro 400-540 Euro
Premium 380-650 Euro 550-950 Euro
Wagon 150-290 Euro 270-450 Euro
Utility vehicle 300-420 Euro 450-750 Euro
Shelter carrier 290-530 Euro 420-830 Euro

A driver can hire a car in France if he is at least 21 years old. There are some other limitations. The so called ‘young driver charge’ shall be paid if the driver is younger than 25. In addition, a young driver will not be able to hire a luxury car. Hiring a luxury car has separate conditions concerning the driver’s age and driving experience.

Fines and limitations on the roads of Nice

It is accepted to strictly observe the road traffic regulations in Nice. Therefore, speed infringement and drunken driving can cost you too expensive. The fines can reach 4500 Euro. You shall also fasten the safety belts irrespective of the trip duration and seat you occupy. Children shall undoubtedly sit in special child seats which correspond to their age, height and weight. You are not advised to talk on the mobile phone without a hands-free device.

Important! Do not try to agree with the police officer. Such an attempt will result in extremely bad consequences.


Insurance of cars

As a rule, the cost of car rental for 3 days, for 7 days or for a longer term includes such standard insurance packages as:

  • The car theft insurance. The French Cote d’-Azur is not considered to be a dangerous area. However, car thefts may sometimes take place.
  • Insurance from casing damage to the car. You can face up with different circumstances on the road. It is better to know that the liability for the damage will be limited by a franchise.
  • Insurance from the damage caused to third parties. This insurance is obligatory. This insurance line is identical to the compulsory third party car insurance widespread in Russia. It will help you in difficult circumstances.

A franchise is unconditionally stipulated in all standard packages. The amount of the franchise is from 500 till 1500 Euro. Many drivers prefer to form a standard insurance package, relying on their driving experience and relaxed atmosphere on the French roads. We offer our customers to form a full insurance package with a zero franchise. This will let you entirely get rid of financial problems during your holiday and trip around the Cote d’-Azur.

Fuel in Nice

The average prices for fuel in this part of France are a little bit higher than in other regions.

  • 10 liters of fuel 95 cost from 13.90 till 14 Euro.
  • The price for 10 liters of fuel 98 is from 14.9 till 15.3 Euro.
  • 10 liters of diesel fuel cost from 12.30 till 12.60 Euro.

There are enough fuel stations in the city and in its suburbs. They all offer high quality fuel. The self service is in force at every fuel station. You need to choose the fuel station dispenser, open the fuel tank, enter the fuel nozzle, pay the necessary amount of fuel and fill the tank with the fuel.

Important! The customer receives a car with a full tank at the car rental companies of Nice. The fuel tank must be full at the moment of returning the car as well.


Like in any other city, the car parks in Nice are worth their weight in gold. There are no problems with parking a car in autumn and winter. However, there is barely room to move in the city starting from April. As a rule, there are open car parks in France where payment is effected at a parking meter. The blue and green markings say that you can leave your car here for one and a half or two hours or sometimes within a longer time period. The payment can be different. On average, it is from 1.5 till 2 Euro per hour. Parking is free on weekends and holidays.
