Marseille Airport Guide

Car Hire

France’s fifth-busiest airport lies around 17 miles northwest of Marseille and the same distance southwest of Aix-en-Provence. It offers easy access to these cities as well as attractions in the Bouches-du-Rhône region. Shuttle buses operate between the airport and both cities, as do faster trains. Still, the swiftest way to arrive in Marseille and other cities in the region is with car hire in Marseille Airport, with Marseille being a 25-minute drive southeast along the coast.

Who to Book With
Hertz, Avis, Budget and Sixt all have presence at the airport, as well as a few other top agents. All car rental agents have counters in the car park, which is where vehicles are picked up. The car park is easily accessible from the terminal on foot.

Need to Know Essentials
Upon vehicle collection, the following documents are needed:

- Your driver’s licence (both parts for UK nationals)
- The credit card used to make the reservation
- Confirmation of ID via passport or a recent utility bill
- Proof of booking

For more info read our FAQ's.

In France, the authorities thoroughly enforce parking restrictions, which means that drivers can expect a hefty fine or even towing if they park in a prohibited area. Parking in a blue zone requires the driver to purchase a blue disc from a tourist office, police station or shop and to put it in eye’s view within the vehicle. Petrol pumps can be serviced or automatic and accept both credit and debit cards, but UK-issued cards are not always received so UK drivers should also carry cash. A warning triangle and a reflective jacket must be carried in all vehicles. Many motorways are toll roads and automatic tag lanes can be used by purchasing a telepeage tag.

For more information on driving here, see our guide to France.


For quick access, arriving passengers can self-drive to Marseille or Aix-en-Provence. Trains reach Marseille almost as quickly though there is no direct train access to Aix-en-Provence.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).
