Paris Austerlitz Station Guide


Paris is the commercial, cultural and fashion hub of France. The nation's capital is spread around a loop of the River Seine in  northern France. Paris has myriad tourist draws. It is full of museums, wonderful architecture, fine dining establishments and shops. Car rental at Paris Gare D'Austerlitz is the best choice for transport, and always popular wit those wishing to explore the countryside surrounding Paris.

Explore Paris

The Gare d'Austerlitz, one of the six core Paris railway terminuses, is on the Seine's Left Bank in the south-east quarter of the city. The station is off the Quai d'Austerlitz, next to the Jardin des Plantes, in the 13th arrondissement. Gare d'Austerlitz has train services from Toulouse, Barcelona and Madrid.

Gare d'Austerlitz can be accessed by the Metro Station of the same name. The station offers a full range of passenger facilities including a brasserie and car rental services from several leading companies.

Driving south for four kilometres on the Quai d'Austerlitz, from the station, leads to the Boulevard Peripherique, which circles Paris and connects to the motorways that run across the country and beyond.

Fontainebleau and Versailles royal palaces, Bois de Vincennes, Compiegne Forest, Amiens Cathedral and the Somme's WW1 cemeteries and memorials are all fabulous attractions that must not be missed.


Car hire is always the most independent form of transport providing tourists with the freedom to travel around Paris and it's surrounding landscapes at their own leisurely pace. However the majority of attractions throughout Paris can be viewed on foot or by hopping on and off the city's many trams and buses. For a short journey Taxi's are the easiest option although if used regularly can become expensive.

Day zone tickets can be purchased to help tourists reduce their travel costs, especially if they plan on using public services regularly. Look after your tickets, once lost they can not be replaced, instead you will have to buy one again.

Charles de Gaulle International Airport (north) and Paris-Orly Airport (south) both offer car hire and public services to get travellers to and from the airport and city center. Car rental desks at the airports can get very busy, so don't book car hire on arrival, instead, book in advance online.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
