KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Lourdes

  • The beautiful town of Lourdes is regarded as one of the holiest places in the world. Based at the foot of the Pyrenees mountain range, it is the site of a large Catholic pilgrimage site every year, attracting millions of tourists to visit the Grotto of Massabielle, where the Virgin Mary was said to appear before a resident. Car hire in Lourdes will provide a chance to see some of the most exquisite religious sites at the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes and commercial sites such as Le Musee de Cire de Lourdes. The south of France is notoriously beautiful, with small country roads and excellent motorways alike, making your trip to Lourdes easily manageable by car.
  • When looking for car hire in Lourdes, consider Tarbes-Lourdes-Pyrenees Airport (LDE), which may be your landing spot in the country. This small airport has four major car hire companies to get the preferred car for your trip. Avis and Enterprise are based in the Arrivals area, and you can find Hertz and Europcar in the car park outside. The airport is based only about a 17min drive from the Lourdes centre, which means you can drive straight from the airport to your destination.
  • With stunning countryside and landscapes, driving with Lourdes car hire will be a pleasure. Highway A64 connects Lourdes to larger cities such as Toulouse and Pau, and you can also make use of Route Nationale N21, which is a major through-way in the town. The French drive on the right-hand side of the road, observe a 0.05% blood alcohol limit and will not tolerate mobile phone use while driving. Stay buckled up and be patient with animals and pedestrians, as you will likely share the road with them at certain times of the year.
  • While driving in Lourdes will be a great way to get around, do your best to avoid driving near the Sanctuary, especially during pilgrimage months, which are especially busy between Easter and October. It is probably better to park and walk, as traffic barely moves. It is not so much that cars are the congestion, but narrow streets leave no room for the masses of people to walk, and they often spill into the roads. Another challenge for driving in Lourdes is the snow. This provides great skiing holidays but can be treacherous to drive in without snow chains. Ensure you hire them from your car hire agent.
  • Book your car hire in Lourdes at least 2 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hire in Lourdes are around 11% cheaper than other car types, on average
