Does anyone have any recommendations on whether we should:
a) Book TGV trains from Paris to Tours, and Tours to Lyon, and just rent a car in Tours itself?
b) Rent a car from Paris, and just drop it off in Lyon?
Another questions is for car rental, should we:
1) book early ahead to get the best possible deal (We are quite budget conscious!)
2) just wait till we get to the city and rent while we're there.
Any tips on car rental companies (which you recommended, and which to avoid) would be very helpful for us as well.
