Top tips for hiring a car in Montpellier

  • A hire car is the best, most comfortable way to explore not only Montpellier, but also the surrounding area of the Mediterranean coast in the south of France. A car will let you drive along the coast and access the more secluded beaches that public transportation can’t reach. Hop into the car and visit some of the city’s top attractions, such as the Saint-Pierre Cathedral, or head to Saint Jean de Cuculles, a 30-minute drive away, to try some of the region’s best wine.
  • Most of the big car hire agencies, including Avis, Europcar, and Enterprise, can be found at Montpellier–Méditerranée Airport (MPL), which is about 15 minutes away from both the city center and some of the beaches on the Mediterranean coast. Car hire desks are located outside the main terminal building, across from the Arrivals Hall and Business Center. Vehicles should be returned to the car hire parking lot – follow the P6/P8/Car hire signs.
  • Navigating Marseille isn’t hard, but be extra careful when maneuvering in some of the narrow streets in the city center. Rue de La Loge is a pedestrian-only street. Pedestrians always have the right of way on crosswalks, so you must stop and wait for them. If you wish to hit the coast, you might want to do so on the weekends, as big trucks are not allowed on the roads. Cyclists are common along coastal roads.
  • While traffic in Montpellier is manageable, the city does get more crowded during morning rush hour between 6:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m., and then again between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m., so avoid driving within those time frames if possible. Downtown always experiences some congestion and traffic jams are common on the A9 – particularly during summer and on weekends, as more tourists take to the road.
