KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Besançon

  • Car hire in Besançon is the perfect way to explore your surroundings at your own speed. Not only can you go direct to your destination, but you also can depart and arrive at a time of your choosing. For instance, you can drive to Marnay in around 1h 5min, which is a journey that would take over an hour by bus. You would also have to abide by the bus timetable.
  • Dole Airport (DLE) is relatively close to the airport, so it’s a good location to get your hire car from. Once you have landed and passed through Immigration, it won’t take you long to find the car hire agencies. For instance, Avis can be located inside the airport terminal, whilst Hertz is a short shuttle trip away. Your Besançon car hire company will give you the keys to your car once you have completed the paperwork, shown a valid ID and paid for the vehicle.
  • Car hire in Besançon is a great way to explore this historic city. The driving style here is relatively relaxed, which makes driving on the roads easier in a hire car. Jaywalking is technically prohibited in this country, but that doesn’t mean people won’t cross the roads in places that they aren’t supposed to. Cycling is also a big sport in the country, so remember to check your mirrors regularly to ensure cyclists aren’t too close.
  • When driving a Besançon hire car, you will find that traffic gets relatively busy, especially during rush hour between Monday and Friday. This tends to be from about 8:00 to 10:00 and about 17:00 to 20:00. If you prefer to drive on quieter roads, then you should avoid driving at these times and instead drive in the late morning and early afternoon. One road in particular that you will find gets very busy during rush hour is the D683, which goes through the centre of the city. An alternative road to try would be Rue des Cras, which should be less busy.
  • Book your car hire in Besançon at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Car hire insurance in Besançon

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Besançon car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the hire price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when hiring a car in Besançon.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your hire. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Besançon car hire.
