The ranking of the cheapest French cities to rent a car

According to the Carigami online price comparison, these cities are the ones that offer the best prices for renting a car.

As the holidays come to an end, the Carigami online price comparison takes stock of the cities where renting a car for a week is the cheapest in France. And the results are surprising, both the price differences are significant.

Price differences depending on the car rental season

First of all, Carigami takes into account the “pre-season” prices, from January 1 to April 31, 2023. Then those of “post-season”, between May 20 and August 22, 2023. But the differences remain the same between cities at any time of the year. Renowned as a tourist town, Ajaccio is the cheapest city to rent a car for a week, with a price of 260 euros. Behind, we find another Corsican city, namely Bastia (262 euros). Mulhouse is 3rd, with a rate of 286 euros per week. Calvi (327 euros) and Toulouse (344 euros) complete the Top 5.
