“If Carlsberg did car hire...”

“Probably the best car hire experience EVER ! Easy to book online, when we arrived in France walked to the desk, 10 mins of paperwork, no hard selling of the "extras" as they had already been done online. Defo our ONLY choice for car hire from now on !”

Bordeaux Airport Guide

Car Hire

Bordeaux Airport, also known as Bordeaux-Merignac Airport, is located 7.5 miles west of Bordeaux, in the town of Merignac. The airport serves the surrounding areas and receives chartered flights from across the world. This airport is perfectly situated for those wanting to explore the department of Gironde, a stunning area of France that is perfect for lazy summer drives. Hiring a car is quick and easy as there are a number of rental companies found within the airport.

Who to Book With
There are eight car rental companies found within the airport. International companies such as Avis, Hertz and Europcar sit alongside Budget TT and Advantage. All companies offer a variety of vehicles that can be booked in advance or on the day of arrival.

Need to Know Essentials
In order to collect a pre-booked vehicle, you must provide the following documentation:

- A valid driver’s licence (both parts)
- A passport
- The credit card used to make the reservation
- Proof of address
- The booking confirmation email or number

For more info read our FAQ's.

Driving
In general, France is an easy place for visitors to drive. However, parking restrictions are rigorously enforced, so tourists should be conscious of parking in prohibited areas to avoid risking fines or towing. Parking in blue zones requires a blue disc token, which can be purchased from a nearby tourist office or police station. Petrol pumps commonly accept cards as payment, but not all accept foreign cards so remember to carry cash. Carrying a warning triangle and a reflective jacket is compulsory. Toll roads are common; UK motorists can use the automatic tag lanes by purchasing a telepeage tag.

See our guide to France for more information on driving here.
