Location information for Bordeaux

As everyone knows, Bordeaux is the capital of France's wine region. Located in the southwestern part of the country, this region is steeped in history and is known for its natural beauty. There is so much to explore here that self-driving is the only way to get maximum time flexibility. But be sure to compare car hire rates ahead of time online to lock down the lowest rates.

Transport

[transport]

The Bordeaux Merignac Airport is the main air hub for the city, located just west of the city centre. Bordeaux can also be easily reached by train from all over France. Within the city it is easy to walk or use the tram and bus network to get around. However, to explore the areas surrounding Bordeaux a car is the most convenient transportation option.

Car Hire Bordeaux

Car hire in Bordeaux is readily available in the city centre as well as the airport. Many international rental companies are located near the central train station, Gare Saint-Jean. Visitors can choose from major international suppliers such as Sixt, Hertz, Europcar and Budget. At the airport, visitors will also find all the major hire companies on site.

Driving

Bordeaux is nicely connected to the French motorway network, making car rental in Bordeaux a great transport option. The city is ringed by the E70/E5 motorway and major motorways provide easy access in every direction. Roads are well-maintained and easy to navigate, but getting lost in rural areas may pose linguistic problems so have a map or some basic French words ready.

Things To See and Do

Self-driving will allow you to explore more than just the city of Bordeaux. Of course visiting some of the famous vineyards is a must, but a day in Cognac offers something different. Taking a tour at the Martell or Hennessey cognac makers is not only educational but tasty. A shorter drive from Bordeaux is the city of Saintes, which dates back to Roman times and is classified as one of the ‘French Towns and Lands of Art and History'.

Best Time To Visit

Wine lovers should not miss the Vinexpo, which usually takes place in June in odd-numbered years. The most popular time to visit Bordeaux is during the summer months, when temperatures range from 14°C to 26°C. The area sees the most amount of rainfall in November and December, with temperatures between 3°C and 12°C.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is 121CarHire.com the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours). Which car rental companies are compared by 121CarHire.com? at this location
