RV Rental France

About France RV Rentals

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.

See our France RV Rental Customer Reviews, where our average review is 4.6 stars out of 5, this based on 21 reviews. On that page you can read our France RV rental reviews and eventually post your own — with no editing by us. That's how much we believe in what we sell and how we sell it.

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.

IdeaMerge: Free Your Travel.

More Info About France RV Rentals

For more info, submit a Search above. Our online order software will then present to you all the RVs, whether motorhome, camper van or truck camper.

If you then click on an 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:

RV Rental france
  • vehicle specs and images
  • pricing details
  • rate seasons
  • basic inclusions (e.g. miles/km, insurance, assistance, various items)
  • insurance (e.g. deductible, domain of coverage)
  • assistance info and policies (e.g. repair protocol)
  • pick-up and return instructions (e.g. depot location)
  • booking policies (downpayment and balance due date)
  • change policy (e.g. return location can be changed before or after pick-up)
  • cancellation policy

Any 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.

A Brief Lesson In Transaction Fees, Exchange Rates and Payment Options

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:

  1. pay IN FULL based on our Super Saver Exchange Rate; or
  2. pay INSTALLMENTS based on a FIXED rate = our Super Saver Exchange Rate + 1.5% premium; or
  3. pay INSTALLMENTS based on a VARIABLE Super Saver Exchange Rate (thus you can play the exchange rate market).

What Our Customers Say About Us

We 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 …
Stefan & Nicole Price
We 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 …
Julio
We 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 …

Why Choose IdeaMerge?

Best Price, No Hidden Costs — Guaranteed
We truly offer the best total prices — far lower than even our suppliers' prices — and we do so transparently. Our foreign exchange rates are the best in the business. We do not charge a booking fee. And 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. If you happen to find what seems to be a better deal, please send us a copy of the quote. We happily endeavor to beat any comparable price, but to do so we naturally require a copy of the quote.
Customized Specials
The specials offered by our RV rental suppliers and by our European car lease supplier can be quite confusing. So, our software does the thinking for you (and us) in this important respect. You submit the distance you expect to drive — if the supplier indeed charges for driving distance — and you choose the extras you would like; our software then determines the optimal special or set of specials for you, inasmuch as any special does indeed apply.
Leverage
We book thousands of motorhome rentals and European car leases every year. In choosing IdeaMerge you gain the leverage that only such a successful, fair and expert broker can offer. Thus we not only offer the best pricing; we can also solve problems on your behalf vis-à-vis the supplier. With IdeaMerge you are not on your own.
Personal Service
We really listen. We respond quickly, thoughtfully, fully and expertly. We aim to exceed your expectations.
7 Days a Week
Our motorhome rental customer service team operates 7 days a week.
Where and Who We Are
It's nearly impossible to learn where some of our competitors are actually located, much less who they are. IdeaMerge is based in Portland, Oregon, USA. We welcome international clients. And we personally introduce ourselves on our About Us page.
Customer Reviews Forum
Don't just take our word for it. Please peruse (and eventually add to) our multitude of RV rental customer reviews and European car leasing customer reviews. Our customers post their reviews directly to our website. With IdeaMerge you get the real story. That's how much confidence we have in what we represent and how we represent it.
We've Been Doing This a Long Time
Since 1996 IdeaMerge has helped savvy, independent people worldwide realize their motor travel dreams. Expertly and with a personal touch, we represent motorhome rental, car lease and car rental options most booking agencies do not command.
Social Media Presence
Free Ammendments
We offer free ammendments on most RV rentals and auto leases.
Security
We are dedicated to protecting your personal information and keeping it confidential. We do not sell, rent or otherwise disclose your personal information to any unauthorized third party without your consent. We use a 256-bit digital SSL connection (Secure Socket Layer) to secure all online orders. That encryption technology ensures that your information cannot be viewed or intercepted by third parties during the order transfer process. Moreover, we encrypt your payment data when we receive it — and we totally delete it after your pick-up date.
Savings and Peace of Mind

It all adds up to savings and peace of mind.

IdeaMerge: Free Your Travel.
