Top tips for renting a car in Bourgogne-Franche-Comté

  • Consider renting a compact car in Bourgogne-Franche-Comté for convenience as you explore the area. It features narrow, winding roads, especially in the countryside and small villages, where larger cars might face challenges in maneuvering in traffic or finding parking. Additionally, a compact car generally has good fuel efficiency, which is ideal for exploring beautiful scenic routes without worrying about frequent refueling stops. With well-maintained roads in most areas, a compact car strikes a perfect balance between maneuverability, fuel economy, and comfortable travel, making it an excellent choice for exploring this charming region.
  • In Bourgogne-Franche-Comté, child safety rules regarding car seats are quite strict. Parents are encouraged to travel with car seats for children under the age of eight, even when leaving the airport. The regulations mandate using rear-facing car seats for infants up to two years, forward-facing seats for children ages two to four, and booster seats for kids between four and eight years. Some car rental companies may provide car seats, but checking availability in advance is recommended.
  • When you are considering Bourgogne-Franche-Comté car rentals to travel through rural areas, it is crucial for you to be aware of the scarcity of fueling stations. For convenience, you are encouraged to take advantage of every opportunity to fill up your car's tank, especially in city centers, where stations are more readily available. This would mean planning ahead and keeping track of fuel levels, preventing any unexpected inconveniences on the road and to ensure there’s no disruption to your adventures.
