Covid complications causing concerns

Martin and Nadine haven’t been to France since January, and Covid complications certainly are an issue and a constant worry. It seems sorting out a ferry crossing isn’t the only hurdle. Is it better to go or to cancel?

Exporting a UK-bought LHD car to France

Driving in France

In recent years, travelling across to the continent and driving in France has become increasingly easy for Brits, but there are laws and regulations to bear in mind while driving abroad.

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!
