Pontoise Guide

Guide

At just over 17 miles from downtown Paris, the commune of Pontoise in the city's northwestern suburbs is reached in less than 30 minutes by hire car. The name of this small town is an amalgamation of the French word pont, meaning 'bridge,' and the title of the nearby River Oise.

Art buffs will be interested to know that Pontoise has strong connections with the impressionist movement, having been home to Camille Pissaro for 17 years and a temporary place of residence for the likes of Paul Cezanne, Vincent van Gogh, Gustave Caillebotte, Charles-Francois Daubigny and others. Some of the most famous landscape paintings by these artists are based on location in the surrounds of Pontoise.

Sightseeing attractions include the splendid Cathedrale Saint-Maclou de Pontoise, a building constructed in the 12th century and added to in the 15th and 16th centuries. The cathedral illustrates a mix of Renaissance and other architectural styles.

Also worth visiting is the Musee de Pontoise, a museum that displays a varied collection of artefacts including 20th century paintings, 17th century manuscripts and Middle-Age sculptures. More examples of artwork can be seen at the Musee Pissarro, a facility housing a variety of impressionist pieces.

The town offers a good selection of accommodation options, among which are establishments operated by Novotel and Accor.

Pontoise can be reached by train easily from Paris along RER line C with the journey taking under 30 minutes. Visitors renting cars will find the route from the city centre is quick and easy. While you can book your car hire on arrival in Pontoise, it is recommended that you book online and in advance. This will secure the best deals and also ensure that you get the car of your choice.

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).
