Explore Le Havre

Le Havre dates as far back as 1517, as it was originally a principal trading post of France's northern coast, which gained affluence following the American War of Independence. This was a result of the importation of goods like cotton, tobacco and sugar. It was also the port for the great luxury liners like the Normandie, Île de France. The most interesting aspect of the city is that it was almost totally rebuilt after the second world war by Auguste Perret, a great architect who went to great lengths to ensure that the new buildings complemented the old. The main feature of his work is the low skyline, making the horizon visible at the end of almost every street and creates an atmosphere of spaciousness. Strolling around the town and discovering the remnants of the original harbor town is both exhilarating and rewarding.

The surrounding area of Seine Maritime provides endless recreational and touring opportunities. Normandy's dramatic northern coastline stretches to the east and west of Le Havre, and includes such scenic treasures as Dieppe and Etretat. Dieppe in particular impresses with the massive white cliffs of the aptly named Cote d'Albatre (Alabaster Coast) stretching away to either side of its harbour. The shore all the way east from Le Havre to Dieppe is full of enchanting seaside resorts and villages.

A worthwhile inland excursion is along the meandering course of the River Seine, where traditional rural villages are located upstream and downstream of the provincial capital of Rouen. Taking the D982 you will come across interesting sights including the medieval abbeys of Jumieges and St-Wandrille. Rouen itself, synonymous with the execution of Joan of Arc, is a prime destination. Further upstream are Monet's charming house and garden at Giverny and the magnificent Chateau Gaillard at Les Andelys.

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).
