Pros: Helpful staff, but only one person serving - it is a small airport after all. You might have a long wait (I was quick off the plane, but there were still 2 people in front of me so about a 15 minute wait).Cons: My car was older than I would usually expect for a rental (50k km) but it was okay.

A very positive experiencePros: The car was great - I think we might have been "upgraded" as a result of the sort of car we ordered not being available, and I'm certainly not complainingCons: To be honest, there weren't really any negatives

Cons: The cars fuel gauge didn’t reset when I filled it up and was then charged for not refilling the car. Needed to make a flight so I wasn’t in a position to argue the point with them.

Top tips for renting a car in Carcassonne

  • Enjoy the freedom and hassle-free convenience of travelling around Carcassonne and the wider Occitanie region anytime you like. Only with a car hire in Carcassonne can you and your travel companions enjoy the sort of mobility and comfort that is limited by other modes of public transport. A good number of primary roads offer opportunities to discover distant places such as the town of Béziers 56 miles east via A61/A9 or the prefecture of Perpignan about 71 miles south via A61/A9.
  • Carcassonne Airport (CCF) is the closest airport to the city centre and therefore an ideal spot to pick up a car hire in Carcassonne after your flight arrives. Options at this airport include local companies like Citer or international ones like Hertz and Europcar. The Car Hire Centre is located in the main terminal building, so there’s no need for shuttle transfer. Upon exiting at the International Arrivals Hall, follow the posted directions or simply request assistance at the nearest Information Desk.
  • Carcassonne has an excellent network of primary and secondary roads in and around it, which makes it quite vulnerable to morning and evening rush hour traffic. A key location is the ring road around the Bastide St. Louis created by the N113, D119 and Boulevard de Varsovie. It encloses a tight patchwork of streets, which often see high levels of pedestrian and cycle traffic as well. Due to the prohibition on vehicles within the gates of the Old Town, you can expect very high volumes of vehicular activity on surrounding streets like D104, Rue Gustave Nadaud and Chemin des Ourtets.
  • Peak rush hour period during the weekdays outbound and inbound to Carcassonne city centre are 07:00-09:00, 13:00-15:00 and again from 18:00-20:30. Expect delays on the N113, D118 and D119 during these times, and traffic jams are frequent at the D6161 circular west of the Old Town and where Boulevard Henry Bouffett crosses the D6161. During the summer months from June to September, an influx of tourists will exacerbate traffic patterns causing increased gridlock on inner-city Street and primary roads.
