Reunion Guide


La Reunion is an idyllic and picturesque mountinous island, positioned in the middle of the Indian Ocean. It is located to the east of the island of Madagascar with Mauritius approximately 200kms to the northeast. Politically, Reunion is a department of France, and also one of the twenty-six regions of the country.

The island is 45kms wide and 63kms in length and is positioned above a volcanic 'hotspot' in the earth's crust which provides fabulous geological features for tourists to enjoy. On the Eastern end of Reunion there is a shield volcano (named Piton des Neiges) that rises above 2,361 meters. Many people call the islands and their volcanoes sisters to those of Hawaii, due to their similarity, not only in climate, but of their activity as volcanoes.

Take a trip to Saint-Denis, La Reunion's capital city, or enjoy a stunningly scenic helicopter ride to see the island's deep canyons and lava cliffs from above, which aren't appreciated unless at great heights. Kelonia marine Turtle Reserve is another great stop for tourists.

Car hire is available from Gillot Airport, also referred to as Rolland Garas Airport and St Denis De La Reunion Airport from suppliers located in the arrival's hall including Ada, Au Bas Prix, Avis, Budget, Europcar, Hertz, ITC Tropicar, National, Rent A Car and Sixt. Book online with us in advance for cheaper prices and offers.

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?
