We recommend this agency by the train station in Aix. Everyone was very pleasant and helpful and the car, a Panda Fiat, was exactly perfect for the small ruelles of les villages perchées.

Very good experienceWe arrived early for the pickup and our car was ready. The staff were very nice and they upgraded the car which was great for our two week trip. Overall, it was really easy and the larger car made up for the car not being clean.The car was not very clean. I had to wash the inside of the windshield and remove some odd substance from the back seats. The interior on the back doors had some kind of sticky mess on them that took me a while to remove as well. On the exterior of the car there was a large sticker on the back window that was partially removed.

Load of rubbishNothing to likeWas told the car would be five times the quoted price with a deposit of fifteen hundred euros. Nothing like what was promised by website. Went elsewhere.
8.0 Excellent6 May 2016
Good gas mileage on the car. It was a nice car.When I returned the car, I parked it just in front of the office. They refused to let me return the car unless I moved it to their garage, I was running short on time already and it took a few minutes for the traffic to clear before I could get the car to the garage. They said it was a "contractual requirement". Really, is it so hard to help me out and accept the return in a parking spot directly in front of your office? It would be good to have more automatic transmissions available for a similar price.

Very helpful and friendly staff. Car was very nice, almost new!An easier pick-up site would be nice, the street was very busy and a little intimidating for someone who wasn't familiar with the local etiquette.

Scammed me out of money and left me strandedThe car was fine, the service was a problemDue to lost luggage, we missed our train and took a later one. Called as would arrive 15 minutes after closing. Told if I paid 54 euro, they would stay open for us. Got there and it was closed! Stranded at station at 11 at night. Called and was told there was no record of this discussion. Next day returned (friend was able to drive 30 min to pick us up over night thank god) for car and was told they already charged the extra fee! Said they tried to call me, there was no missed call. terrible customer service!!!

Super service de Loic!Apres une tres mauvaise experience chez un concurrent, j'ai change de compagnie et Loic a tout de suite livre un excellent service. Poli, souriant, et professionel, il a rendu l'experience tres agreable. Il nous a meme surclasse sur une meilleure voiture, qui etait d'ailleurs de tres bonne qualite. Au retour, j'ai eu la chance de tomber sur Loic qui a une nouvelle fois ete au top. Augmentez le!N/a

Car hire excess insurance in Aix-en-Provence

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Aix-en-Provence car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Aix-en-Provence.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Aix-en-Provence car rental.

  • Discover the beauty of France on your own time and remain flexible by renting a car upon your arrival in Aix-en-Provence for the ultimate travel experience. The city is quite extensive and can be best explored by car, from the Site-Mémorial du Camp des Milles to the Atelier de Cézanne.

  • Driving in Aix-en-Provence is very similar to driving in the US and is not a particular challenge that travelers should worry too much about. Bear in mind, however, that in Aix-en-Provence speed cameras are installed in many places, often without any sign or other indication of their presence. Also, many European cities are also very old, and Aix-en-Provence is no exception. Therefore, streets in some parts can be very narrow and challenging to navigate at first.
  • There are various big arterial expressways going through Aix-en-Provence that lead to bigger cities like Marseille, for example, including the A51 or A8. During morning and evening rush hours (usually between 7-9am and 5-8pm) these freeways can have increased traffic which may lead to delays. Consider taking alternate routes other than the freeways, such as the D-marked roads, and try to avoid leaving and returning during these times.

Many hotels in France have their own parking space or are happy to assist travelers finding a suitable parking spot.
