You cannot drive, park or deliver a vehicle hired in France in the United Kingdom.

You will be charged £ 1,980/€ 2,317 as liquidated damages to cover the costs incurred in repatriating the vehicle. With respect to the above liquidated damages amount, you are at liberty to prove that no damage has been incurred or that the damage is substantially less than the liquidated damages amount.
