Driving and Parking in Marseille

You will need a full driving license and must be over 21 to rent a car in Marseille. If you are from outside the European Union you will also need an International Driving Permit (IDP). For more information about driving regulations in Marseille, take a look at our page about renting a car in France.

If you hire a car in Marseille the good news is that you can often park just about anywhere you want to, even in the centre, and that the parking charges here are the lowest in France. That said, there is some degree of control and you have a choice of garage, municipal and on-street parking to choose from.

It’s best to choose one of the established car parks rather than mounting the kerb, where you may be bumped into by passing traffic. There are official lots in the Gambette Gare area as well as Rue Mazenod and Place Felix Baret. These are all signposted as ‘Q-Parks’ and charge on average just under €2 for 15 minutes to just under €20 for a 24-hour period, which is quite reasonable by the standards of a city like Paris.

Driving in and around Marseille

Key routes

Marseille has a good road network, although some of the smaller roads can be excessively narrow, such as those in the port area. Sticking to the main thoroughfares wherever possible is the best advice, then park the car and get to your destination on foot.

La Canebierre is the main shopping street in Marseille and visitors come here for designer shopping and to see the nearby Arab Quarter.

The A7 is the main link by road between Marseille and Calais.

The A8 connects Lyon, Valence and Orange to Marseille.

Major Highways

Many of the motorways in France, including those connecting Marseille to the rest of the country, charge tolls, so check out alternative routes on secondary roads where necessary. The extra cost in terms of petrol may however make this impractical. Whatever your decision, a few things should be kept in mind when driving on French roads:

• Drive on the right in France, and overtake on the left.

• Vehicles travelling downhill on steep gradients have to give way to those coming uphill in the opposite direction.

• At intersections, give way on the right unless the road signs indicate otherwise.

• Use of the horn is prohibited in residential and built-up areas except in cases of emergency.

• The driver and passengers, in both front and back of the vehicle, are required to wear seat belts at all times.

• Children under 10 may not travel in the front of the vehicle unless a child restraint is fitted, and the use of special child seats is decided by weight rather than by age, on a sliding scale.

• Carry full driver documentation with you at all times to be produced on request.
