FRANCE MCRENT & AVIS CAR-AWAY SPECIALS: Book your France motorhome rental or camper van hire with IdeaMerge, and our software will apply any relevant specials from the France motorhome rental company as well as our own IdeaMerge QUANTUM online discount.
We use our buying power to offer you big savings versus booking direct.
Book early to secure availability. Many clients book RV rentals months in advance. Moreover, our discount tends to be higher the earlier an RV hire booking is made.
Although motorhome and campervan rentals in Germany are considerably less expensive than anywhere else in Europe, a great advantage of renting a France-based camper instead is that you can pick-up the motorhome smack dab in, say, the warm and sunny Côtes d'Azur (Nice) which location, please note, being virtually adjacent to the Italian border, is a good place to start and end a camping tour of Italy.
With Avis Car-Away you can also do a one-way motorhome rental between, say, Paris and Nice.
If the duration of the rental is 14 days or longer you can return a Paris or Marseille Avis Car-Away motorhome hire to locations outside France, including Lisbon, Madrid, Barcelona, Milan, Rome, Venice, Zurich, Munich, Berlin, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, and Frankfurt.
All our France motorhome rentals and campervan rentals include unlimited kilometers.
The motorhomes and campervans are modern, secured, and continually upgraded no motorhome or campervan being more than two model years old, and about 80 percent of the fleet being renewed each year.
Motorhome hire and campervan hire pick-up is possible at Paris, Nice, Ajaccio (on Corsica), Lyon, Marseille, Toulouse, etc. On our Rental Details pages (i.e. click on the motorhome image) we provide detailed directions regarding the pick-up and return location(s).
At Paris only, private transport is available from/to the international airports, the Gare du Nord train station (where the EUROSTAR arrives/departs), other Paris train stations, and hotels in the city center (downtown).
Alternatively, you can park your car securely at the pick-up location free of charge for the duration of the camper hire.
Upon the rental pick-up occasion you will receive further instruction about returning the motorhome to the rental depot.
The France-based motorhomes and campervans can be taken by ferry to the Mediterranean islands, to Greece, to Scandinavia, and to the United Kingdom (perhaps via the Channel Tunnel) and Ireland.
Apart from our IdeaMerge QUANTUM online discount, the prices and policies presented on the IdeaMerge website match the prices and policies of our suppliers. You aren't paying extra by going through IdeaMerge — in fact you're paying less, thanks to our unilateral, QUANTUM discount.
IdeaMerge facilitates the whole RV rental booking process, presenting a single total cost you can count on — and acting for you as an accessible resource and, if necessary, as a mediator.

Many factors determine the cost of a motorhome or campervan rental in France. The factors affecting the RV rental cost include RV size, rental rate seasonality (or whether the rates are so-called flex rates instead re-determined daily or weekly based on supply and demand), and the optional extras you select (many and varied).
For exact total costs, submit a Search above. Our online order software will then present to you all the RVs, whether motorhome, camper van or truck camper, ordered by total price.
If you then click on a RV thumbnail image or on the "More Info" text link adjacent to that image, the software will present the following info specific to the RV and dates:
Many optional items are available for hire with an RV rental, and these greatly affect the total cost. The optional items (e.g. camping table and chairs, bedding, shuttle transfer) are presented during our online order process, along with selectable pick-up and return times.
In many cases the RV rental company offers an inclusive package that bundles together a set of optional extras for one relatively low price. Again, don't worry about those packages. Just select à la carte the options you want and our software will apply an inclusive package if such is available and if such package indeed gives you a lower price than actually paying for the options à la carte.
Similarly, RV rental companies often offer specials that involve optional extras. Such specials can be complicated and hard for customers to understand. Again, our software is carefully programmed and maintained to automatically apply any specials that benefit you.
We think our software is unique in terms helping our customers optimize their RV rental and minimize their costs in these important respects. Our aim is to provide you with the best value and to increase our sales as a result.

We do NOT charge a booking fee. On the contrary, we discount our prices far below those of our suppliers.
Likewise but more uniquely still, we do NOT charge a credit card transaction fee. Most of our competitors charge a credit card transaction fee of about 2%! (They bury mention of that fee deep in their Terms and Conditions; search those terms for the word "surcharge" or the phrase "credit card" to see their surcharge acknowledged.)
Furthermore, we do indeed charge your card in the currency you choose above. Thus no unwelcome suprises will be consequent of the charge. The charge in that currency will post to your account in exactly the amount we quoted; and no foreign currency transaction fee from your credit card company can apply to the charge.
We use our guaranteed Super Saver Exchange Rates — meant to be the best retail exchange rates available out there — to arrive at that guaranteed amount (i.e. if your currency is indeed different than the supplier's currency).
To be sure, our Super Saver Exchange Rates are NOT the interbank (i.e. wholesale) exchange rates which the big banks give to each other and which are typically the rates presented by Google and financial websites — and commonly also by our competitors, to give misleadingly low quotes — but they ARE the best rates you as an individual consumer can take advantage of. This is to say, our exchange rates are meant to be considerably better for you than the rates which Visa or MasterCard and the banks use to translate foreign currencies into cardholder currencies.
Most uniquely we offer three payment options in relation to currency, one of which options you can select during our online order process:
Stefan & Nicole PriceWe wanted to thank IdeaMerge and Avis Car away for the most incredible experience traveling through France, Switzerland and Germany. The Class B+ motor home provided was exceptional (we wish comparable vehicles were available in North America). The service and support from IdeaMerge made the planning and reservation process effortless. Responses to our many questions were incredibly prompt and thorough. Read More
JulioWe had an amazing time in France following the Tour de France, and riding the epic climbs of the Alps & Pyreenes. IdeaMerge helped make everything simple and well supported. We were able to find numerous RV parks along our impromptu route, and the RV was perfect. I highly recommend this mode of travel especially when you want a more versatile itinerary. Read More
Barabara Falk & Ladd BurmasterWe recently rented a camper from IdeaMerge and toured from Lyon to the Alps region where we did some spring skiing for 3 weeks then headed to the French Riviera for 10 days... we loved this mode of travel and found campsites easily in most places we went. My husband did all the driving and he was most impressed by the European drivers as opposed to the drivers in the USA. He found the camper fairly easy to operate even touring the mountains with the tight hairpin turns. Read More
It all adds up to savings and peace of mind.
