Cahors

Before Brodeaux, there was Cahors. The wine produced here in the Middle Ages helped give France its wine-making stripes before Bordeaux had even began its long history of viticulture. The city is the capital of the Lot department, named after the Lot River that snakes its way around the outskirts of the city.

The eponymous city sits in a particular bend of the river, which is why it is known locally as the �almost island'. There is a scenic bridge crossing called Valentré Bridge. The city, reflecting perhaps its suffusion with fine vintage, hit its peak in the 18th century and has been mellowing ever since. This means that the city looks much like it did back in the day, and as such has become a desirable tourist destination.

Many tourists hire cars to reach Cahors, and the tourist information centre in the central Place Mitterand is a good place to get started, as you'll find information for sightseeing, restaurants, nightlife and accommodation.

After pottering around the city and seeing its beautiful historic buildings and sampling some of the delicious French food, you may want to see where that glass of wine you had at lunch was produced. There are still vineyards in the countryside and a rental car is the best way to get out and explore the region's wine-growing heritage.

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).
