KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Annecy

  • Car hire in Annecy is very common in the elegant alpine French town just south of the Swiss border. The town seems small but is quite large, and many of the town's attractions are dispersed all over the town. Car hire in Annecy makes travelling to and from destinations easier and more convenient. Annecy is known for quite a scenic drive along Rte d'Albertville; hiring a car would be an extremely rewarding experience.
  • A close airport to Annecy is Chambery Airport (CMF), located about 45 km southwest of Annecy. Chambery Airport offers a handful of agencies visitors can hire cars from. You should bear in mind most car hire agencies in France require you to have a valid EU licence or ID; otherwise, an International Driving Licence for most visitors is required. Additionally, there is an airport petrol station located just outside of the airport as you depart the parking area.
  • Driving an Annecy car hire, for the most part, is a delight, as the roads are of good quality and work great. Generally, when hiring a car in Annecy, you might need to consider the traffic in the centre and around the town. Depending on what time of year you visit, there might be snow and icy roads, so be cautious. In the summer months, the town is busy and the roads can get quite packed.
  • Annecy can get quite busy in the months from May to September, as the weather is great and most people from Europe take leave to enjoy the weather. It is at this time that the town is quite busy, and there are many pedestrians, animals and activities on and around the roads. Rte d'Albertville can get particularly busy, as this tourist hot spot is a route many seek to travel.
  • Book your car hire in Annecy at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

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

    For car hire in Annecy, it would be recommended to select some of the smaller car options, as the small alpine town is known to have tight roadways in the city. There are also many alleyway roads, and the parking is limited, especially in the busier months of summer. In winter, perhaps a car with a bit more power and outfitted with the appropriate tyres would be recommended, as it can snow quite heavily in Annecy at times. Furthermore, Parc Animalier de la Grande Jeanne is quite a steep drive, and parking up on the famous hill is also very limited.

  • What’s the speed limit in Annecy?

    When hiring a car in Annecy, it is important to note as a tourist that the town is quiet and well reserved as a population. Things move slower in the town of Annecy and so should you. The speed limit set throughout the town's built-up and residential areas is 50 km/h during the day and 25 km/h at night. This is strictly enforced, especially during the summer when the streets are busier and more vibrant. In the snowy winters, it's advised to read the weather forecast and maintain the lower speeds stipulated on the road signs.

  • Where are the best places to park in Annecy?

    When in Annecy and hiring a car, it is important to note that most parking in and around the town needs to be paid for; this will be indicated on the street signs around the parking spaces. Paid parking will, on most occasions, set you back around € 1.10 (about A$ 1.60) per hour during the day. There are, however, roughly nine free parking areas around the town, but be sure to arrive early, as these parking areas usually fill up quite quickly in the morning.

Cons:

Return at Annecy train station was complicated. Hard to find info about where exactly they were located. No info on line, nothing printed on the paperwork. Car return was underground parking inside the train station with no signage outside the train station as to Avis location or underground car park. Paperwork should have indicated as such.

Justin from the office was out standing both at renting time and during the rental period. Return to the street near the office on Sunday is difficult. Price was Abit high.

We really liked the car - it was an SUV (wow, challenging to drive in Europe). But for a 6 week trip, covering much distance, the size and comfort was excellent. We had excellent customer support at pickup and dropoff. We made a request that was very slightly out of company policy and they happily accommodated. Pickup and dropoff for us were at different locations. We are familiar with the different settings of European vs American car rental: the European experience in frequently cramped, confused (plenty of 'lost in translation), and harried. We did not experience that during pickup, but definitely and massively, at dropoff. These events always end up as fabulous travel stories - so, that's the bright side. :) We will be happy to use Sixt in the future.

Pros:

The car itself was great, clean, operationally sound and comfortable.

Cons:

No GPS or automatic transmission options, making for a very difficult trip through Europe. Additionally, the staff at the Hertz stations were extremely unhelpful. Really disappointed in the customer service. Tried to drop off the car at the Geneva airport in Switzerland. Turns out there are 2 locations, one on the French side and another on the Swiss side. They would not help us get from one to the other, leading to 2 hours of circling the airport. "Good luck" is all we got.
