Besançon Guide


Located close to the Swiss border in north-eastern France, Besancon is known as one of the greenest cities in the country. Historic ruins and monuments nestled among luscious greenery make it a picturesque city, and there is much in the way of heritage and culture to be explored. The city is home to numerous sites and museums, all of which offer a sense of Besancon's rich past.

St Jean Cathedral, dating back to the 12th century, features intricate design work and is among the top sites to see in Besancon. The citadel, built along the banks of the river, is another striking structure with a romantic setting well worth the visit.

The city's Museum of Fine Arts is widely considered one of the best museums of its kind outside of Paris with a collection dating back as far back as the late 1600s. Works from artists such as Titian, Rubens, Constable, Matisse and Picasso feature in the impressive collection housed here.

Parks and squares provide the perfect locations for quiet respite and a picnic. Besancon is home to a number of fine green areas, including Micaud Park, the Promenade Granvelle and the Place de la Revolution. Performing arts play a leading role in the cultural offerings of the town with up to five theatres to choose from and an impressive opera house.

For travel around the Besancon, both walking and cycling are two excellent options. Most of the town's main sites are located within close proximity to each other making it easy to get from place to place.

Car hire is the best option for trips into the spectacular countryside that surrounds the town. There are car hire outlets in Besancon, but they can be expensive. Book your rental car before you travel and take advantage of great savings.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk 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).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
