This hugely popular city in the French Riviera is widely renowned for the Cannes Film Festival, though it hosts a number of other exhibitions and trade fairs in every season. Located at the southeastern tip of France, Cannes is the glamorous meeting point of Provence, Monaco, the Alps and Italy.
The high speed TGV train serves the Cannes Rail Station from several major cities in France, including nearby Nice, Avignon, Marseille and Paris. Londoners can take the Eurostar to Lille and connect to Cannes. The trip from Lille to Cannes takes about seven hours. Cannes is also conveniently connected to such major European cities as Milan, Rome, and Brussels.
Cannes has earned a reputation for glitz and glamour, with a slew of luxury hotels, private beaches, and famous visitors. Private beaches can get quite pricey, but the public beaches can be unbearably crowded. Travellers should visit the les de Lrins, whose calm beaches are a short ferry ride away. Snorkeling is also available, and there is a lovely monastery on the smaller island.
In Cannes, visitors should be sure to wander through Le Suquet, the old quarter. Restaurants and small shops fill the winding streets, and there is a fantastic panoramic view from the castle ruins.
Cannes' proximity to such a wealth of interesting destinations makes car hire an excellent option. Rent a car at the train station for the freedom to explore the region at your leisure. Booking Cannes car hire online in advance is the best way to secure the cheapest rental rate.

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.
