KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Arles

  • Use car hire in Arles to make the most of this beautiful, Rhône River-based French city. Being situated in the south of France will mean endless choices of road trips along the Riviera where public transport stops and freedom starts. A city filled with history and culture, Arles is a historical UNESCO-listed part of the country that is best enjoyed with the independence of your own car, particularly as trains and buses are restricted. Arles houses ancient Roman ruins including the famous Arles Amphitheatre, the Castillo de los Baux and so much more. Consider a road trip down to the city of Nice and stop and visit quaint French villages along the way.
  • When arriving for your holiday, you might book Arles car hire at Marseilles Airport (MRS). You’ll find the car hire companies based in the car park area, just in front of Terminal 1. Here you’ll find Virtuo, Thrifty, Rent@Car and Firefly. Pick up a GPS and reach Arles in about an hour via the N113 and the A54.
  • When you’ve booked car hire in Arles, you will notice most of the small city consists of streets and alleys that are old, labyrinth-like and extremely narrow. The French drive patiently and are rather friendly on the roads, and you will find the highways are well-signed, in good shape and the perfect connection between Arles and other towns. The French drinking and driving limit is a strict 0.05% blood alcohol, and they too have roundabouts like the UK, with the same rules. You will drive on the right-hand side of the road and always remain buckled up when in a moving car.
  • When travelling via car hire in Arles, your biggest challenge will be the navigation of the rather complicated maze of very small alleys and roads. The historic part of the city centre is off-limits to drivers, so you’ll need to research which areas are zoned for pedestrians before you drive into the city. Traffic should not affect Arles, as the commuters will be parking outside of the city centre, but you will always have to keep an eye out for pedestrians. Your hire car will likely be a manual vehicle, as this is the favoured form of transmission in France. Pre-book an automatic if that makes you more comfortable. Arles’ weather is quite good, meaning apart from winter rain, you should not need to contend with snow or winds.
  • Book your car hire in Arles at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini hire cars in Arles are around 67% cheaper than other car types, on average

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

    There is no doubt that you will be better off with a small and compact vehicle. In fact, the smaller the better. You will not be able to park on the streets often, but even with standard driving the roads cannot handle large cars. Pick something that’s light on fuel and small but still sturdy enough to embark on a highway jaunt to the coast if the occasion arises.

  • What is the speed limit in Arles?

    When driving a hired car in Arles, stick to the speed limit; cameras and police traps can ruin a holiday. In built-up areas, you will drive at a slow 50 km/h (31 mph). Larger roads outside of the city centre allow for a faster 80 km/h (50 mph). When on dual carriageways, you can push it to 110 km/h (70 mph), and on the motorways, you will be allowed to drive as fast as 130 km/h (80 mph).

  • Where are the best places to park in Arles?

    There’s almost no point looking for free street parking in Arles. It’s hard to find and you’ll have far better luck paying a small fee and parking safely in a car park. There are certain free car parks, such as at the Cirque Romain or Salvador Allende, with about 200 free spots. You can also leave your car at the SNCF train station, which also has roughly 200 spaces. In the historic centre of Arles, you can park at Parking des Lices, or alternatively, Parc du Centre. On average, parking costs about €1 (£0.86) per hour, or about €8 (£6.86) per day.

KAYAK
We found the individuals that we delt with at both locations to be very friendly and helpful in picking up the car, as well as dropping it off. What we least liked about Europcar, was their insistance that the car insurance we had gotten through Kayak's booking process was not going to cover many other potential damage scenarios and "PUSHED" their insurance element to ensure we didn't have to pay for the vehicle if it were damaged. And to top it off, the final bill showed a currency conversion of 1 USD to 1.15 with a 3.5% conversion fee (nickle and dime tactics) In addition, we were informed when we picked up the car in Arle, that the drop-off location next to the train station in Tours was "permanently closed", and that we had to drop-off the car 15km away, necessitating a cab ride ($25 Euro) to the train station.
