Mounia was very professional and helpful at pickup

No road signage anywhere showing where to return rental cars. No gas station nearby, and difficult to find one (Google Maps led me to two gas stations that did not exist).

I liked the friendly staff, quick check-in and check-out and the cleanliness of the vehicle that was small but well thought outer, very easy to drive, good built-in features. The location was actually not that convenient : I found out all the roadwork in Montpellier that made it not so easy to navigate from and to. I would also have liked for the direct contact number to be written on the emailed contract.

Pros:

Helpful staff, good price, easy pick-up and drop-off.

Cons:

I would have liked a car with a bit more power because of my itinerary and doing mountain driving. Would like helpful feedback but not upselling based on itinerary and type of driving.

We booked an "Economy" car, described as "Open Corsa or Similar". Upon arrival, we were given a Fiat 500, and the Enterprise employee insisted that this is what we had booked. Ultimately, I understand that according to the Enterprise classification a Fiat 500 is somehow in the same category as an Opel Corsa. But we felt severely misled - especially since if we actually wanted to "mini" like the Fiat 500 we would have rented that for less money from another agency.

We rented a car from Montpellier to Nice. The services at the Montpellier Europcar office were awful! The people working there (Jennifer and another guy) don't know what they are doing. They charged us 170 euros more without explaining it to us. Although the money was not supposed to be deposited, they were! They could not explain what was going on and could not reassure us that we would get them back. We had booked a Fiat 500X and they gave us a Wolswagen T-cross without any notice. The car was ok and thanks to the wonderful guy at Nice Europcar Office the matter was solved.

I cancelled this reservation since I was unable to modify my dates. They said because I booked through 3rd party. Budgetcar also was unhelpful. So I rented direct through Sixt

Cancellation policy and insurance terms were not clearly stated on the booking. Details were explained upon picking the car thus, needed to pay a surcharge to benefit from full insurance coverage.

The drop off in Dijon was extremely confusing. There were no instructions given about how to return the car. There was no one in the train station where I had to take the car and the office was closed on Sunday. The ONLY way we figured out where to drop off the key was because another woman dropping off a car at the same time told us where to drop off the key, which was not in the train station at all, but down the street with a small key deposit box.

Cons:

I thought all was well when I got on an earlier flight, but Dollar refused to change the time on my car reservation and I could not get the car when I arrived. They insisted I'd have to pay three times the price. After 45 minutes of assistants calling the headquarters and all sorts of other useless jazz, I gave up and rented from someone else.

Pros:

the car was new. it ran great. very gas efficient. friendly staff, especially when I ran late returning the car, due to weather delays.

Cons:

I bought the additional insurance directly from the site and when I got to the rental car company they insisted I buy THEIR insurance. not only did I pay 40% for the insurance, the car wasn't even legally insured there. secondly, the rental car company was severely overbooked. when I got there, there was only one car left which they gave me. the car I rented online was supposed to be big enough for "two luggages" and they one I got barely fit one. I was lucky enought to leave with a car, as the person who came in behind me left very angry without one.

Car hire insurance in Montpellier

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Montpellier 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 Montpellier.

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 Montpellier car hire.

Top tips for hiring a car in Montpellier

  • A hire car is the best, most comfortable way to explore not only Montpellier, but also the surrounding area of the Mediterranean coast in the south of France. A car will let you drive along the coast and access the more secluded beaches that public transportation can’t reach. Hop into the car and visit some of the city’s top attractions, such as the Saint-Pierre Cathedral, or head to Saint Jean de Cuculles, a 30-minute drive away, to try some of the region’s best wine.
  • Most of the big car hire agencies, including Avis, Europcar, and Enterprise, can be found at Montpellier–Méditerranée Airport (MPL), which is about 15 minutes away from both the city center and some of the beaches on the Mediterranean coast. Car hire desks are located outside the main terminal building, across from the Arrivals Hall and Business Center. Vehicles should be returned to the car hire parking lot – follow the P6/P8/Car hire signs.
  • Navigating Marseille isn’t hard, but be extra careful when maneuvering in some of the narrow streets in the city center. Rue de La Loge is a pedestrian-only street. Pedestrians always have the right of way on crosswalks, so you must stop and wait for them. If you wish to hit the coast, you might want to do so on the weekends, as big trucks are not allowed on the roads. Cyclists are common along coastal roads.
  • While traffic in Montpellier is manageable, the city does get more crowded during morning rush hour between 6:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m., and then again between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m., so avoid driving within those time frames if possible. Downtown always experiences some congestion and traffic jams are common on the A9 – particularly during summer and on weekends, as more tourists take to the road.
