KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Poitiers

  • Using a car hire in Poitiers is the best way to see the city and the surrounding area, as it offers you the freedom to explore it all at your own pace. Not only can you go to wherever you want with your Poitiers car hire, but you can also stay there for as long as you want. You can depart and return without having to take the local public transport timetables into account. This will give you the freedom to explore the neighbouring towns, such as Avanton, or perhaps take a day trip to the Parc Zoologique Bois de Saint Pierre.
  • Biard Airport is the closest airport to Poitiers and it has plenty of companies that can offer you a car hire in Poitiers. The airport is host to several companies, such as Sixt, Europcar, Hertz, Enterprise and Dollar, and you can find their branch offices in the main hall of the terminal building after passing through Customs and security. Their opening hours may vary depending on the company so we recommend that you investigate this when you have made your travel arrangements.
  • As you are driving in France, you will need to adhere to the French laws of the road, primarily by driving on the right-hand side of the road. You are not allowed to turn right at a red light in France, but you may do so if there is an extra filter light flashing green and giving you permission. Jaywalking is common in Poitiers, so take care when behind the wheel and keep an eye out for pedestrians crossing the road outside of their designated junctions.
  • Poitiers receives both warm weather and rain so try to keep this in mind when renting a car. Check that your car hire in Poitiers has enough coolant liquid to keep the vehicle working smoothly. You should also try and be aware that when it is raining, both your visibility and that of the surrounding people, whether they are pedestrians or drivers, is also reduced. Try and stay calm while driving as French drivers are prone to outbursts of frustration and impatience.
  • Book your car hire in Poitiers at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini car hire in Poitiers are around 26% cheaper than other car types, on average

    We recommend that you use a compact or an economy car hire in Poitiers, as they tend to be easier to control and navigate around the city. They are also easier to park, and controlling them may be easier fi you have little experience of driving on the other side of the road. If you would like to explore outside the city, then you may want to rent an SUV as they are more comfortable and better prepared for driving on country roads.

The motorway allows you to drive at 130kmph but if the weather affects visibility, then legally you have to reduce your speed to that of a dual carriageway which is 110 kmph.

  • What are the best places to park in Poitiers?

    There is a free car park called Auchan Poitiers Sud, which we recommend that you check out if you are staying in the south of the city. There are a few other car parks where you will have to pay, but they may also offer 24h service. You can find 6 different parking zones within the city to car your car hire in Poitiers where on street parking is available.

Cons:

Due to the French rail strike, we had to change our travel plans. What we did not like about our Sixt experience is that we have been unable to get reimbursed from Sixt due to our change of plans travel plans due to the train strike. We never used Sixt services but have been unable to get our money back. We plan on disputing these charges with our credit card.

Car hire insurance in Poitiers

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Poitiers 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 Poitiers.

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 Poitiers car hire.
