Situated in the middle of the Pyrenees in the aptly named Midi-Pyrenees region of France is the French and Ocitan commune Lavelanet. Technically it is located in the Ariege department and has a population of 6,872, who go by the name of Lavelanetiens.
To the northwest of Lavelanet is the French town of Toulouse, which is less than 100 miles away and so easily accessible by car. Car hire in Lavelanet is available should you want to explore the surrounding area or perhaps even visit one of the neighboring towns or cities.
Being so close to the Spanish border, Barcelona is also only a couple of hours away by car so car rental at Lavelanet is an attractive option and will allow you to see everything the area has to offer with a host of different road trips to keep you busy.
To the east are the historic French towns of Montpellier and Marseille, both offering a great number of tourist sites. And being on the coast, there are of course many beaches that you can visit. Not only this, but local fishing fleets regularly stock up the local restaurants with fresh sea food. So why not organise some cheap car hire at Lavelanet and take a trip to the coast for some exquisite French seafood cuisine. Other destinations you might want to consider visiting include Perpignan, Narbonne and Carcassonne all unique in their own way but still very typically French.
Frequently asked questions

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.
