About this Report

Executive Summary


  • The most important factor influencing car rental in France is the increasingly evident shift of the category towards peer-to-peer bookings and car sharing, which is evidenced by apparently conflicting sources. According to a press conference from CNPA – Branche Location de Voiture, Conseil National des Professions de l’Automobile, the car rental branch of the main trade association of cars and related activities in France, the number of car rental transactions increased by 7% in 2013, with further positive growth recorded in 2014. Even so, some mainstream players concur with Euromonitor International that growth in the number of bookings for the traditional short-term rental of passenger vehicles was much less dynamic, with meagre transaction growth of only 1% in 2014, notably due to a disappointing tourist season during 2014. Total value sales of car rental even declined by 1% in current terms in 2014 due to the acceleration of price decreases from September 2014.


  • Although it is not included in traditional car rental sales, the most dynamic formats for using motor vehicles for short period of time in France over the forecast period are expected to remain indirect competitors such as car sharing schemes and peer-to-peer platforms. According to one journalist, “the car is gradually changing from the status of inviolable extension one’s little 'home' to a simple form of transport”. While for their parents, it was impossible to imagine life without the acquisition of a car, this is no longer a problem for many young and urban households in France, with increasing numbers of consumers in urban households deciding that they can do without a second car or even, in many cases, a first car, opting instead to make periodic use of another person’s car. This growing trend is likely to represent both a threat and an opportunity for the leading players in current or in France during the forecast period, resulting in increasingly blurred boundaries between traditional car rental on the one hand and car sharing schemes and peer-to-peer car booking platforms on the other, especially in the area of business car rental.
