Lorient Guide


Lorient, located in Brittany alongside a large beautiful harbour which is sheltered from the sea by the peaceful island of Île de Groix, lies where the rivers Scorff, Blavet and Ter meet. The town was once extremely wealthy, attracting English and French colonists. However, Lorient underwent heavy bombardment during WWII, and much of the town was destroyed. As a result of this destruction, many of the beautiful sights no longer exist, but there is historical evidence of this. Book cheap car hire in Lorient right here and let us find you a great deal by comparing the market. It's the best way to get around this area of Brittany.

Explore Lorient

The only museum in town is located on the other side of the estuary in Port-Louis. The Musée de la Compagnie des Indes (The India Company Museum) recounts the shrewd workings of imperialism.

Most visitors here tend to spend their time floating around on the many boats, up and down the estuary or out to the island Île de Groix. A smaller version of the Belle-Iie, this eight-kilometre steep-sided rock has some fabulous beaches that draw in hordes of tourists.

There is an abundance of restaurants to choose from in Lorient, and one of the best is the Victor Hugo Hotel restaurant, which offers wild pheasant pate and duck l'orange. Yesterday's, a brassiere close to the town hall, has a great set menu.

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.

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?
