My wife and I are planning an early July trip to from Washington, D.C. To France and England. We are wanting to rent a car from the Paris airport To explore northern France and the DDay beaches before taking the ferry from Le Havre to Portsmouth and then onto London. Our travel dates are as follows:
Thursday July 3 - arrive Paris airport CDG pick up rental car
July 3-5 - see Giverny, Honfleur, DDay Beaches, Bayeoux
Sunday July 6 - drop off car in Le Havre and take ferry to Portsmouth
The issue I'm having is trying to drop off the car on a Sunday in Le Havre since All the places are closed. Also, we are wanting to rent an automatic transmission since neither of us can drive stick shift. Reviewing the major car rental companies everything is manual...
Has anyone taken a similar trip and can offer advice on dropping off a car on a Sunday.
