Do You need an International Driving Permit to drive in Europe.
In France and Italy you can rent a car and do not need to show an International Permit, only your drivers license from your home country and perhaps your passport. Italian law requires that you carry an IDP as does Spain, Portugal, Greece, and several of the former Soviet Union countries. The International driver's permit is issued by the American Automobile Association AAA in the States and the CAA in Canada. The cost is $15 and not a bad bit of insurance against running into trouble while driving in Europe.
Shop for your rental car online well ahead of your trip and choose diesel (more economical) or gas, luggage space,(important) standard or automatic,(important) two door, four door and other options. See renting a vehicle in Provence
