At the heart of the Aveyron region lies the old capital of Rouergue, Rodez, located in the province of the Midi-Pyrenees, in the south of France. Its geographical position, sitting between the dry plates of Causses and the wet hills of Sogala, makes it an interesting place to visit. The mountains of Aubrac and the forest of Palanges give this town a scenic panorama, and make it great for hiring a car and driving through. Prebook cheap car hire in Rodez and experience the most out of your holiday here.
We highly recommend tourists to visit Rodez's old town, which exhibits the very large red sandstone 'Cathédrale Notre-Dame', constructed in 1277, and located along place d’Armes.
Heading south tourists will come across Place Rozie, situated outside of the Maison Cannoniale. From here, medieval streets connect Place de la Prefecture, Place de-Gaulle and Place du Bourg.
There is an abundance of eateries, one of the best being La Taverne, located at 23 rue de l'Embergue, which has local cuisine at reasonable prices. For gourmet cuisine, try the Gouts et Couleurs on 38 rue Bonald.
The region of Aveyron, with its rolling hills and majestic gorges, is an excellent place for rambling. There are towns and villages in every direction from Rodez, including the beautiful village of Conques, famous for its medieval artefacts. An hours drive south and tourists will come across the Millau Suspension Bridge (pictured above). Definitely worth a visit if you have the time.

Car hire suppliers operate from the airport, but we highly advise all travellers to book in advance before arriving at the airport, as prices can be very expensive.

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.
