During winter seasons some locations enforce a mandatory winter pack on all of their vehicles. This is to meet legal requirements within France, and this includes snow tyres and/or chains. We also have a whole host of various different optional extras from satellite navigation systems to additional drivers to help make your hire that little bit easier.

It has recently become mandatory for the driver of a vehicle in France to carry a breathalyser kit. These kits can be purchased at local garages and shops for approximately €10. Its recommended to purchase two kits and always keep them in the vehicle. A fine will be imposed should the local authorities discover you are not carrying at least one unused breathalyser kit.

Have used Indigo on 3 occasions going to France. Always found them to have a friendly and efficient service.

I really recommend Indigo for car hire abroad - We were struggling close to the time of our holiday in France to find a car hire service that would accept debit cards and the Indigo team were more than helpful around the clock to ensure we had everything in place. Thank you!

Had been having so many dramas with other car rental companys & renting with a Visa Debit card. Many companys lying about ability to book with a debit card and then the small print telling me otherwise! Gave these guys a ring, spoke with fantastic guy called Matt who squared me away with a rental, great price in under 5minutes!

Wish i'd have called them earlier!!!!
