Cannes Guide


One of the Cote d’Azure’s most attractive destinations, Cannes, is best known for its annual fringe film festival, and has become increasingly popular for hosting shows, tournaments and festivals. It’s also a great place to moor your million-dollar yacht, flash your platinum amex card and beat off the paparazzi. We offer cheap quotes on car hire in Cannes. Book today to secure a car, which you can choose from our wide selection from luxury cars to family sized economy cars.

Explore Cannes

Le Suquet is the old town, perched on a hill, from where you can enjoy excellent vistas. Here you’ll find the remains of the fortified twelfth-century priory chapelle Ste-Anne, as well as the Musée de la Castre.

Cannes main streets; rue d'Antibes, rue Meynardier and the promenade de la Croisette are a good place to spot the rich and famous, but ruinously expensive for shopping.

La Croisette, The palm tree lined waterfront avenue, gives Cannes its exotic, high class appeal and you can’t miss the tacky façade of the film festival auditorium. Wandering around the mariner admiring the jaw dropping luxury yachts is fun, but finding a non-paying beach in this area is a little frustrating, many belong to the expensive sea front hotels, but there are a few located to the west of Le Suquet. A popular boat ride away is the Îles de Lérins, offering visitors glorious walks and cycling trails, several beaches to relax and unwind and also a few fortifications.

Eating at any venue along waterfront is out of most people’s league but the Forville covered market, two blocks behind the Mairie, has cheap fresh food, in typical French style.


By air
The nearest international airport to Cannes is 7kms west of Nice, and takes about 45 minutes by car. There are regular flights to Nice from many European cities and limited trans-Atlantic flights. In all, 40 airlines land at this. International flights also arrive in Marseille. Connections to Paris and other French cities are numerous.

By land
Frequent trains run east and west along the Cote d’Azure (almost hourly), and daily departures run all the way to Paris, as well as Barcelona, Genoa, and Milan. The high speed TGV trains connect to Paris in around 5 hours (though they run more frequently via Marseilles) and operate to several other destinations.

A car gives you the flexibility to explore the inland Provence region, which involves a stunning drive over the mountains. The drive along the coast is spectacular but can be tiresome for drivers. Italy is less than 2 hours away and border formalities (including car) are extremely convenient. 

By sea
Ferry services to Mediterranean destinations usually arrive and depart from Antibes (30 minutes by train), but there is a departure from Nice to Corsica.

Frequently asked questions

Is 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?
