Brest Guide

Guide

The city of Brest, set in a natural harbour in the region of Brittany, is home to the French national fleet. There are several historical attractions for visitors to see here in Brest, however, due to the reconstruction of the town during the 1950's, much of the remains of the war are not clearly visible today. The most convenient form of transport for exploring this region is with car rentals. Prebook cheap car hire in Brest with us today and obtain the freedom to see the sights from the comfort of your own personal vehicle. Be prepared for your holiday and book now!

Explore Brest

One relic worth seeing in Brest is the old castle; the 15th century building looks quite remarkable and offers a superb panorama of the city. Three of its towers are the home of the collection of the Musée National de la Marine.

Walking around the streets of Brest, you’ll find remnants of just how beautiful the city was before it was flattened. Still remaining of that former beauty is the 14th century Tour Tanguy located the other side of the Penfeld River, with its conical slate roof. It now serves as the Musée de Vieux Brest and is definitely worth a visit.

Brest's newest and hottest attraction is Oceanopolis, which can be found only a few kms to the east of the city centre, next to the Port de Plaisance du Moulin Blanc. This futuristic complex currently is made up of three distinct aquariums and a 3-D cinema. It’s also possible to see all kinds of different species of sea life, a great day out for the kids.

Eating Out
Visitors will find a varied selection of restaurants to suit all budgets within Brest. Rue Jean-Jaur’s, spanning east from the place de la Liberte, has an abundance of bars and restaurants. To the north tourists will come across Place Guerin, which is located in the centre of the busy student area of St-Martin.

Transport

Brest Bretagne Airport is located a short 15 minute drive north towards Guipavas. There are approximately nine flights per day from Paris to Brest, either from Charles de Gaulle or Orly Airports. The flight time is about one hour.  Car rental suppliers operating from the arrivals hall include Avis, Europcar, Hertz, Citer and Sixt. For more options book car hire in Brest online in advance of travel.

There is a shuttle bus from the airport into the city, for those who do not want to hire a car. There are also several taxi firms operating from directly outside of the terminal building, but can be costly.

There are about nine TGV trains from Paris (Montparnasse train station) to Brest. The station is located in Brest's town centre. Buses service the town so if you don't wish to book a hire car then the buses are a cheap and fairly reliable way to get about.

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). Which car rental companies are compared by Carrentals.co.uk? at this location
