France on $70 a Day - Never on a Sunday
I know many shops in France are closed on Sunday, so I should have thought about how that might affect car rental agencies before we made plans to go from Paris to Sarlat on that day of the week. We had no problem with the train schedule, but it was impossible to find a car agency in the smaller towns. They are open six days a week, not seven.
Because the rental agencies are closed in Brive and most of the other towns around Sarlat when we're arriving in the Dordogne area, we have had to alter our plans considerably. Instead of the 40-mile drive from the Brive rail station, we will have a 120-mile drive from Bordeaux to Sarlat. Since I made the error, I've offered to do all the driving that day. I think David's going to take me up on my offer!
