The culturally rich and historical Basque country in France is home to the cosmopolitan city of Bayonne. The city, with its plethora of historical monuments and rich heritage, is the main city of the region and a popular destination for both French and international tourists.
Grand Bayonne is the commercial and historical centre of the city. Narrow streets lined with quaint Basque style houses hosting shops, cafés and restaurants provide ample opportunities to occupy your time. Here, you will also find the striking Gothic cathedral of Saint-Marie.
Petit Bayonne is a hub for nightlife and entertainment. Bars and restaurants abuzz with people make perfect spots for both visitors and locals to mingle in a relaxing and welcoming atmosphere.
For four days in August each year the city turns into a playground for all things Basque with the start of the Fête de Bayonne. The streets are closed to traffic and taken over by streams of people joining in the festivities and fun. Live music, dancing, parades, food and lots of sangria all play a role in the non-stop merriment.
For travel around the city there are a number of options from taxi service to bicycle hire and walking. The bus system throughout the city is inexpensive and runs to a number of popular tourist spots.
Car hire is perhaps the most convenient option, which will afford you the freedom to get out and about into the astounding countryside that surrounds Bayonne. We offer the cheapest car hire deals on the market, which can be booked online in minutes.
Frequently asked questions

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.
