Here is a checklist of what is required in your car to drive in France, obviously no.1 will not apply to you and no.3 will obviously be an 'E' sticker and I don't know if in Spain you are required to keep your car registration documents in the car but here in France it is a requirement, so don't forget that either.

In all cases, vests and triangles should be easily accessible, i.e. the triangles not be buried under a pile of shopping in the boot.
So returning from the airport with four passengers I should carry five vests?

Ideally, yes, although if you are renting a car, you may have difficulty in getting the rental company to supply even one.

Rental companies usually supply one vest and the triangle. The Service Public site says nothing about multiple vests https://www.service-public.fr/partic...sdroits/F19459

Car rental companies don't usually supply the breath test kit, but they are inexpensive and can be purchased at major airports, supermarkets, service stations, online ... the cheap disposable ones are priced from around €1.20.
