Top tips for hiring a car in Corsica

  • Enjoy driving your car hire around the picturesque island of Corsica and explore each corner of the island at your leisure. With most of the roads that go through the island being in good condition, it is unlikely that you will need a 4X4 unless you are planning on going off road. A two-wheel drive car will be sufficient for a holiday hire and a small compact car can be useful for when you are diving on the narrow roads. A smaller car will also be useful when it comes to parking on the island.
  • When you are driving your car hire around the island of Corsica, it is important that you follow the rules that have been put in place by the local authorities. It is mandatory that all passengers in the vehicle wear their seat belts at all times. Drink-driving is also taken very seriously on the island with breath tests being carried out on a regular basis. Anything above 0.5 mg of alcohol per ml of blood will land you in trouble with the authorities. It is also illegal to use your mobile phone whilst driving, so you must always pull over if you need to answer a call. You are also not allowed to use the horn of your car in a built-up area, unless it is for an emergency situation.
  • You can do your bit for the environment when you are driving a hire car in Corsica by opting for a hybrid vehicle, which runs on a combination of both petrol and electricity. This is a great way to reduce the carbon emissions associated with your holiday. You will be able to charge your car in the more urban parts of Corsica, such as Bastia and Ajaccio, so you can ensure you have all the fuel necessary for your journey. There are also lots of petrol stations across the whole island, so you’ll never be caught short.
  • Book your car hire in Corsica at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hire in Corsica are around 58% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about hiring a car in Corsica

  • Should I hire a car in Corsica?

    You should hire a car in Corsica as it provides you with a level of freedom and flexibility that you can’t get from other modes of transport, such as public buses and taxis. For example, if you want to go to visit a nice beach for the day, such as Capo de Feno, then you can get there from Ajaccio in about 25min by car, which is much quicker than if you were to opt for public transport such as a bus. It is also a more cost-effective way to travel than by a return taxi trip.

  • What is driving like in Corsica?

    Driving in Corsica is different to driving in the United Kingdom, so it might take you a little bit of time to get used to it. For example, you will drive on the right side of the road rather than the left, which requires going around roundabouts the opposite way to what you are used to. The steering wheels on the cars are also on the left side, which is different to what you are used to. The speed limits are similar to what you are used to in the UK though, so you should find that familiar. For example, in urban areas you can go up to the limit of 60kph (37mph), in more rural areas it's 80kph (56mph), whilst on motorways it's 110kph (68mph). Keep an eye out for the signs that will inform you of when a speed limit changes.

  • How old do you have to be to hire a car in Corsica?

    You need to ensure you meet the age requirements for hiring a car in Corsica, so it suggested that you check the policies of the individual companies as they are likely to vary. For example, some companies will not allow you to hire a car under the age of 21, whereas some will allow you to hire a car if you are 18 years of age. There is often a surcharge for drivers that are under a certain age. In addition, it is likely that there will be a smaller selection of cars available for you if you are under a specific age, such as 25, as the companies will only allow the more powerful cars to be hired by more experienced drivers.
