Rennes Guide

Rennes, the capital of Brittany since 1522, is a modern town which has been virtually rebuilt after a fire destroyed most of the city. There still remain some vestiges of 18th century architecture around the public squares and it’s worth taking a stroll around town to see some of the quaint half-timbered houses.

The medieval quarter, which survived the fire, borders the canal to the west and the river to the south and is the home of the old ceremonial entrance to the city. Another edifice to escape the city’s conflagration is the Palais de Justice, whose collection of recently sculptured statues is an eye opener.

Walk south from the palace and you’ll reach the river Vilaine, which runs right through Rennes and seems perpetually busy down on the banks. The Musee des Beaux Artes sits on the banks in a former university building and houses paintings by some of France’s great Impressionists.

There’s no shortage of places to eat and drink in Rennes. Rues St-Michel and Penhoët are alive with alternative restaurants offering a multitude of dishes. For live music and trendy young students, head to Barantic, 4 rue St-Michel, one of the city's notorious hang-outs.

The ideal time to be in Rennes is the first ten days of July, when the Festival des Tombees de la Nuit is celebrated with a varied selection of music, theatre, film and mime, all mirroring traditional Breton culture. In December, Rennes hosts the rock festival ‘ Transmusicales’.

Rennes Airport, located just 10 minutes from the town centre, is easily accessed. You can take a bus from bus stop République or place de la Mairie in the town centre right to the airport. Alternatively, you can take a taxi. Rennes can also be accessed by rail and car.

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?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

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).
