Exporting a UK-bought LHD car to France

Is it possible or indeed practical to buy a LHD car in the UK, originally registered in Poland, and then import it to France? Are there guidelines to be followed?

The cheapest way to hire a vehicle in France is to hire one from a supermarket.

In Brittany, Super U and Leclerc have some for rental. They have 5 seaters (Fiat Punto for example), 9 seaters, various size vans from 6 to 20 cubic meter, etc.

They will also let you take it to the UK which is very practical. I have already booked a van for a client to take to England for a few days. The price was very reasonable. It is a cheap way to organise a removal.

Book it early as they might have just one of each size!

I have just got a price for a friend for a 5 seater for 5 days. €121 all in.

Having worked for a car hire company in Jersey, I think it is a good price!
