4.0 Okay9 Sep 2019
Pros: stafgf was very friendly and helpfulCons: Choosing an SUV/minivan as the vehicule type results in a moving van in France. I was on vacation and was not interested in renting a moving van, yet that was the vehicule set aside for me.

6.4 Good23 Apr 2017
Cons: Main problem was pickup; the office was almost closed because they are supposed to close at 11pm, and not 11:30pm, as written on the confirmation email. We were very lucky that someone was still there, although she had to turn on the computer again. She told us that she was surprised that we had a booking with pickup at 11pm because their office does not accept them. Everything else was ok.

Top tips for hiring a car in Nantes

  • There is lots of history and culture to explore in Nantes such as the Dobree Museum, Jardin des Plantes, Castle of the Dukes of Brittany, and Nantes Cathedral. With a hire car you can visit all of the attractions while also enjoying a picturesque drive along the coast to beach resorts like Pornic or Le Croisic.
  • Nantes Airport is a short drive from Bouguenais and offers both domestic and international flights. Although it is not a very large airport, it provides everything you’ll need for a comfortable trip. This includes quick access to hire car agencies like Sixt, Enterprise, Thrifty, and Hertz. Most of the agencies have desks right inside the airport and those who don’t provide a shuttle to their off-site locations.
  • Nantes has strict driving laws so you’ll want to be very careful and cautious when you are driving there. For one thing, don’t get distracted. Eating, texting, talking on the phone (without a headset), or applying makeup while driving are all illegal behavior in France. Additionally, speed traps are not uncommon around Nantes, so be alert and always prepared to slow down.
  • A pretty big city, Nantes’ metro area can have some hectic traffic. It is especially busy around the downtown area during the morning and evening commutes. Consequently, you’ll want to avoid driving around the center of the city from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. in the morning and 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the evening.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Nantes for £27 or less
  • Book your car hire in Nantes at least 1 week before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact car hires in Nantes are around 37% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • Because you will often be driving on the highway, you can rent any vehicle you’d prefer. A sports car, luxury vehicle, or convertible might be a fun choice for your Nantes vacation. However, a compact car might be your best bet because of the cost of petrol in France. Some common cars driven around the area include the Peugeot, Renault, Volkswagen, and Nissan.

  • You’ll travel mostly on the motorways during your vacation. The speed limit on these major highways is between 80 km (49.70 mph) and 110 km (68 mph). If you happen to be in a residential neighborhood, be sure to drop your speed to 30 km (18 mph). You’ll always need to adjust speeds in inclement weather.

  • The current price for petrol (often referred to as petrol) in Nantes, France is about $5.54 per gallon (4.88 euros). Both premium and diesel cost slightly more. In comparison, this is higher than in many other countries, including the United States and Canada, which is why a more fuel-efficient car is likely a good choice.

  • You will likely have to pay to park your hire car in downtown Nantes. However, many hotels offer free parking for guests. If this is not your situation, consider leaving your car at a parking lot such as Parking Feydeau or NGE Commerce Public Park (a parking garage in the center of downtown). Valet public parking services are also available at the Nantes Train Station.
