KAYAK’s 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 R1 390 or less
  • Book your car hire in Nantes at least 7 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Located not too far from the Railway Station. Friendly staff. Always nice car, this time I had a Peugeot 2008. Managed to refuel at a very convenient Carrefour gas station just 1 km away.

I had a great experience renting a car. My front counter person was very attentive, personable and spoke good English! He helped me switch the language on my navigation system, as I couldn’t without the knowledge of the French language. The return was easy as well.
