Not far away from what could be called the most northerly city in France, Boulogne Sur Mer is an idyllic town nestled in a green forest with the sea in the distance. The area was even favoured by Julius Caesar as a place for an army base. Another notorious historical figure who favoured the town - which at the time was referred to as Portus Itius - was the mad emperor Caligula, who used the city in his defense against the Celts and Gauls.
Cathedrals, castles, belfries and other historical buildings make Boulogne Sur Mer a great place to come and soak up some vibes from times long gone by, and with its proximity to the coastline Boulogne makes a great place to get way and relax for a few days.
The local economy has historically come from the bounty of the sea, and even in modern times a large part of what brings money into the town is the port that ferries people and goods across the English Channel to Britain.
The city is known as a city of art and culture, and this is reflected in its annual event schedule, with plenty of festivals to choose from during the year. Boulogne is easy to reach from other cities in the region, and car hire is the best way to go about it. The roads leading in and out of the city are in good shape, and directions are well posted.

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.
