Angoulême Guide


The bustling capital city of the Charente department, Angouleme is located in southwestern France. The town is well-known for animation, illustrations and graphic arts, as well as captivating architecture that displays the charms of the past. With a good mix of the modern art and old world beauty, Angouleme appeals to a wide range of tourists from all around the world.

The city is surrounded by lovely boulevards and old walls, offering scenic views of the surrounding areas. Walking along narrow, cobbled streets visitors will find themselves facing one of the most magnificent churches in the region, the cathedral of St Pierre, which was built in the Byzantine-Romanesque style in the 11th to 12th centuries.

Another notable attraction is the Town Hall, which boasts a modern structure and two towers that belonged to the chateau of the counts of Angouleme. The old town features a lovely cobbled restaurant quarter and several galleries. Tourists can also do some shopping at the many boutiques that are scattered around in the area.

If time permits, visit the market Les Halles, located on the site of an old jail where you can check out the lifestyle of the locals and look for souvenirs to bring home. Those into art and comics cannot miss the Musee de la Bande Dessine, which displays an impressive collection of comic strips, while the International Comics Festival takes place here every January.

The transportation in the city is quite good. There are buses that run across the city regularly. However, having your own rental car is a great way to explore the city and its neighbouring areas at your own convenience. Your best bet is to arrange a car rental before you depart. We offer inexpensive car hire from Angouleme which can be conveniently booked online.

Frequently asked questions

Is 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).
