Top tips for renting a car in Marseille

  • Renting a car is the most comfortable and convenient way to explore the city of Marseille and navigate its historic streets downtown. With a car, you can visit the city's impressive monuments, such as the Basilica of Notre Dame de la Garde, at your own pace. A hire car is also the perfect option for travelers looking to discover the region of Provence, including the city of Aix-en-Provence, which is only a 40-minute drive from Marseille. It is also the best way to explore the French Riviera, with the popular coastal town of Saint-Tropez sitting just two hours away from Marseille.
  • All the big car hire agencies, including Avis, Enterprise, and Hertz, can be found at Marseille Provence Airport (MRS), which is located 27 km (17 miles) northwest of Marseille. The car hire counters can all be found on the ground floor, in front of Terminal 1. Desks are open from 7 a.m. to around 11:30 p.m. If you must contact your car hire agency after closing hours, call the reservation center. You will not need an international driving permit to rent a car with most companies in Marseille.
  • The roads in Marseille are usually easy to navigate as they are well-signposted, but you may come across some very narrow streets in the city center, so pay extra attention when maneuvering in tight spaces. Pedestrians always have priority on crosswalks, so you must stop and wait for them. Travelers planning on embarking on a road trip through Provence might want to do so on the weekends, as big trucks are not allowed on the roads. Beware of cyclists, as the coast's roads are very popular among the cycling community.
  • Marseille is one of the most congested cities in France, and traffic gets a little heavy during rush hour, so avoid driving around between 6:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m., and then again between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m., so you don't add extra time to your travels. Avoid driving through the main street, the Canebière, if possible, as the new tram mean less space for cars, often resulting in traffic jams.
  • Book your rental car in Marseille at least 4 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini rental cars in Marseille are around 69% cheaper than other car types, on average

What type of car is recommended for driving in Marseille?

For passengers who don't require much space, a small, compact car is ideal for driving through the narrow streets of Marseille. But if you're planning on a road trip along the coast, a convertible vehicle may be a fun way to travel through the French Riviera as the weather is usually quite warm but temperatures aren't too high. If you're traveling with the whole family, a sedan is best as it offers enough space for everyone.

What's the speed limit in Marseille?

If you're embarking on a road trip through the Mediterranean coastline in the weekend, try to fill up your tank early in the morning, as roads and petrol stations tend to get crowded, especially in the summer months.

Where are the best places to park in Marseille?

French drivers are used to double or even triple-parking on the city's narrow streets, which means it's best to avoid street parking and instead leave your vehicle at one of the many public parking lots around Marseille. One of the best options is the underground garage near the Vieux Port (Old Port). Street parking is metered and usually time-limited, and parking is paid from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday to Saturday. Prices for both on-street parking and parking lots can range between €1.50 ($1.70) and €2.50 ($2.80) per hour.
