KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Bastia

  • When driving a Bastia car hire, in addition to winding roads, be prepared for narrow, single-lane roads and steep drops, particularly in the mountainous areas and Bastia. Map out your route carefully and take note of any tricky spots you need to prepare for. If you're driving outside of Bastia, you may also encounter animals on the road. Most of the time, you will simply have to wait for them to pass (and have your camera handy to snap a memento).
  • Bastia is an excellent starting point for a short road trip around Cap Corse. If you head along the coastline from Bastia to Saint-Florent, you'll be following the sun and getting the best views of the stunning coastal scenery. Take the D80 road along the coastline and make a few stops at the small, charming villages you pass along the way. You can make the trip in one day, but you may feel rushed, so consider spending the night in Pecorile or Ersa, close to the halfway point. It will also likely take longer during the summer months when it can get quite busy.
  • Reflective jackets and warning triangles must be in your car at all times when driving your cheap car hire in Corsica. Winter tires are mandatory in the mountainous areas of Corsica between the 1st of November and the 31st March. You don't need an International Driver's Permit (though it never hurts to have one on hand) but you will need to have your passport with you. Additionally, bear in mind that the blood alcohol limit is 0.05% and its always best to avoid drinking before driving at all just to be safe.
  • Take in the beautiful scenes of nature as you drive through the region of Upper Corsica in your hire car. Having a car will enable you to drive to numerous islands and relax on their sandy beaches. Sports activities like surfing, fishing, or hiking are also possible. Bastia offers plenty of historical and cultural attractions along with an exciting nightlife. With a car you’ll be able to visit local bars and clubs for some nighttime entertainment.
  • Travelers to the French Riviera often fly into the Bastia-Poretta Airport. Offering numerous shops and services, you’ll find it easy to rent a car from this facility. Once you’re off the plane, you’ll take just a short walk through the arrivals hall, where you’ll find numerous hire car agencies including Alamo, Budget, and Hertz.
  • There are many winding roads around the islands so you’ll need to be extra-cautious. Additionally, Bastia has strict driving laws about being distracted. Note that you could get pulled over for eating or talking on the phone without a headset while driving.
  • Traffic is busiest around Bastia in the summer months. Because of its small population, rush hour is typically not a major problem but it can still get congested at times. This is mostly around the downtown area during the peak commuting hours of 7 a.m. - 9 a.m. in the morning and 5 p.m. - 7 p.m. in the evening.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Bastia for £26 or less
  • Book your car hire in Bastia at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini hire cars in Bastia are around 36% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about car hire in Bastia

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Bastia?

    With such beautiful routes, it would be nice to let down the top of a convertible as you drive around North Corsica. A smaller vehicle might also be ideal because of the winding roads around the beach towns and communities. Be sure to let your hire agent know if you need a car with automatic transmission, as most hire cars in Bastia are stick shifts.

  • What’s the speed limit in Bastia?

    Speed limits are pretty simple to remember in Bastia and Corsica. When you are driving in and around the town, keep your speed down to 50 km (or 31 mph). Once you are on the highway, if it is more like an interstate, the maximum speed allowed will be 90 km (or 55 mph). Outside of the city on the motorways you can travel at speeds of up to 110 km (or 68 mph). Note that there are speed cameras everywhere around Bastia.

  • Where are the best places to park in Bastia?

    Parking in the evening and on weekends is easy to find in Bastia, even on the street.

  • How old do I need to be to hire a car in Bastia?

    To get a cheap car hire in Bastia, you need to be at least 21 years and you need to have held your license for at least one year.

  • Are there any laws I should be aware of when driving my Bastia car hire?

    Resist the urge to honk at the slow car in front of you when driving your cheap car hire in Bastia. In town centres, you are only permitted to use your horn in the event of an imminent collision or other danger. Otherwise, you risk a fine. (But don't be surprised if locals don't obey this law!)

Great car at a great price, helpful friendly staff. A great hire car company.

Wij hadden een peugeot 308 SW besteld en ter plaatse kregen we te horen dat we een VW I bus 100 % elektrisch kregen. We schrokken in de eerste plaats omdat we nog nooit elektrisch gereden hadden en geen ander model kregen. Gelukkig is Corsica heel goed voorzien van laadpunten en hebben we genoten van onze ritjes door het mooie Corse.

When we picked up the car we specifically asked if we needed to fill up the gas tank and the representative at the desk said no. We also used google translate to make sure our communication was understood correctly. When we dropped off the car the representative said we needed to fill the car up with gas when dropping off. We did not receive a written or emailed contract stating that we needed to fill up. We were charged an exorbitant amount without prior warning. This was a horrible experience. I would like to be credited for this outrageous charge.

The local rental office did not accepted the reservation we made with Priceline/Kayak. Instead they offered a more expensive contract. Very upsetting.

The price indicated on Kayak and Priceline is significantly different from the price you will have to pay at the counter. Car was clean, but please remember to take pictures of every scratch as their own way of keeping track is rather shady and ambiguous.

Car hire insurance in Bastia

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Bastia car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend being aware of your coverage when hiring a car in Bastia.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your hire. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a non-deductible option to your Bastia car hire.
