Gap Guide

Guide

Gap is a French commune which lies 2,406 feet above sea level on the right embankment of the river Luye. It is the biggest town in the Southern Alps and the capital of the Upper-Alps department, making it a popular tourist spot.

Originally created by the Gauls, the Romans, under Emperor Augustus, took control of the town in 14 BC. In 1512, Gap was seized by the French crown, and in 1815, Napoleon I arrived here from Elba and had innumerable copies of his proclamations printed. When he left Gap, the entire population of the town escorted him.

Gap is an ideal starting point for discovering Les Ecrins National Park, which features high summits, glaciers and Alpine fauna and flora. This region offers a wide range of leisure activities such as cross-country skiing, climbing, cycling, walking, paragliding and golf to name but a few.

Every Wednesday and Friday, a lively market is held in the town where visitors are able to taste traditional Alpine cuisine including Champsaur pies and raviolis de Gap, a mouth-watering creamy potato gratin.

Further points of interest are Le Musee Departemental, showcasing an appealing archaeological selection of artefacts and bronze statues from the Queyras valley, and Les Balcons du Gapencais, a circuit that extends 28 miles around Gap and is perfect for walkers, cyclists and riders.

Independent travellers who wish to explore the magnificent Alpine surroundings of Gap should consider car rental to make their stay as comfortable and efficient as possible. A convenient and cost-effective option is to book your hire car in Gap online before leaving home. We can offer you the best deal on the market for Gap car rental.

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).
