6.4 Good23 Apr 2017
Main problem was pickup; the office was almost closed because they are supposed to close at 11pm, and not 11:30pm, as written on the confirmation email. We were very lucky that someone was still there, although she had to turn on the computer again. She told us that she was surprised that we had a booking with pickup at 11pm because their office does not accept them. Everything else was ok.

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.
