Cahors is a popular stop on the Paris-Toulouse route, luring visitors with its renowned AOC black wine' that was first produced in medieval times. Located in southwestern France, Cahors is uniquely set on a peninsula in the Lot River.
The train ride from Paris Gare d'Austerlitz to Cahors takes about six hours, as the railway after Limoges is relatively slow moving. An alternative route is to take the TGV from Paris Gare Montparnasse to Montauban and catch a local train to Cahors.
The Cahors Rail Station is not a long taxi ride from the town centre, though car hire is the most convenient method of transportation. Our affordable prices allow travellers to rent a car and travel on their own itinerary rather than relying on public transport.
One of Cahors' top attractions is the Valentr Bridge, constructed in the 14th century. This bridge is intricately linked to a complex Devil's Bridge legend, giving it a mysterious allure to locals and visitors alike. Another interesting site is the Saint-tienne Cathedral, which is a national monument. The Daurade quarter has a number of historical houses that are certainly worth visiting.
Travellers from the UK should also consider the Eurolines coach that leaves from London's Victoria Station and transfers at Tours to arrive in Cahors. Though the trip is around 18 hours, it is an exciting alternative to taking the train.
The best way to get around once you arrive, however, is by hire car. Rental cars are best booked online in advance to save disappointment. We guarantee you the lowest Cahors car hire rates on the market.
Frequently asked questions

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.
