KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Valence

  • Cheap car hire in Valence is the only way to truly capture the magnificence of the French city and all the splendour this part of the passageway to the Côte d'Azur offers. With the A7, A49 and A41 highways linking to France’s southern coastline, it is perfectly located for spontaneous travel as much as local exploring. Valence overlooks the Rhone River and boasts attractions such as the 11th-century St Apollinaire Cathedral, The Valence Museum, and the gorgeous Jovet Park. The city is also less than an hour away from some of France’s most famous vineyards in Lyon and Grenoble.
  • If arriving in Valence by air, you may have landed at Lyon-Saint Exupéry Airport (LYS). The airport is based just over an hour away on the A7 motorway and the car hire companies can be found between Terminals 1 and 2, with some outside. The car hire companies at the airport include Virtuo in Car Park 5, SIXT, just outside the airport, Absolute Car Hire and National in Terminal 2, as well as Europcar, Budget and Hertz inside the airport.
  • When driving your cheap car hire in Valence, you will drive on the right-hand side of the road. French road rules are quite similar to the rest of Europe, except the ‘priorité a droite’ rule, which means always yielding to traffic coming from the right. The roads in Valence are well-maintained and signed, with the signs being in French. It is advisable to know a few French words when driving, or hire a GPS that you can convert into English-speaking. Stay under the blood alcohol level of 0.05% when driving, and only use your horn in absolute emergencies.
  • Driving your cheap car hire in Valence should not present with any challenges, as the city is rather quiet on the roads. The highways do experience some bad traffic at the end of summer, when tourists use the city as a thorough-fare back home after their breaks. If you are visiting in winter, you will find some bad weather conditions, such as rain, but nothing worse than the UK. All in all, if you are comfortable with a manual transmission vehicle, you will be fine driving in Valence. If you need an automatic car, it is worth pre-ordering with your car hire company as they will not be standard.
  • Book your car hire in Valence at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hire in Valence are around 79% cheaper than other car types, on average

Cons:

The car was handed during the winter by the French Alps with SUMMER TIRES and NO CHAINS FOR THE TIRES... We have learnt that on the worst way possible... Also the service dashboard light came up after one hour in the road. Took me 5 calls to several branches (I was in Italy) to hear that I should just ignore... Imagine if the car breakdown in the middle of the road...

Pros:

Great Car. Very fuel efficient. Great value if you know how to drive a manual.

Cons:

Budget operates within Avis. The Avis signs are much bigger we only ever saw one very small Buyer sign in one hidden window and if you don't know they are together you wont know where to go.
