Roscoff Guide

Guide

Situated in Brittany, in the northeast region of France, the port of Roscoff was opened in 1973 to improve trading links and to revive tourism in the area. However, the town does have historic merit, in that it’s been the landing site of Mary Queen of Scots and Bonnie Prince Charlie. Book cheap car hire in Roscoff and drive around Brittany visiting its many towns and villages all from the comfort of your own personal vehicle. Book today to secure a hire car and at an affordable price.

Explore Roscoff

Today Roscoff is a small resort town with a lively atmosphere, especially on rue Gambetta and in the old port. The Notre-Dame-de-Croas-Batz, at the far end of rue Gambetta, dates back to the 16th century and is exquisitely adorned with Renaissance architecture.

If you feel like a walk, head about one kilometre down the coast to Roscoff’s best beach at Laber. The accommodation is expensive, but it makes a pleasant beach stroll. At Le Maison des Jonnies, you can hear the story of the Jonnies, the classic beret-sporting onion sellers.

Some fine restaurants can be found in the old town, the Hotel-Restaurant des Arcades, is housed in a 16th century building with scenic surroundings. If you’re looking for somewhere livelier, the Hotel-Restaurant le Bellevue,  close to the ferry terminal, is the place to relax and enjoy a drink.

It looks as if the Isle De Batz is almost close enough to swim to. Unfortunately it’s not, but it is accessible by hired boat and does make a fun trip. The boats leave from the Pointe de Bloscon daily, which is the home of the fishermen's white chapel.

Transport

Not surprisingly, the best way to reach Roscoff is by ferry. Ferries run from Plymouth (England) and from Cork (Ireland). For tourists travelling by bus, a service runs directly from Brest to Roscoff. There is an airport at Morlaix, 25kms from Roscoff, which can be reached by train from Roscoff’s Gare SNCF.

Brest Airport is the nearest international airport to Roscoff. Also named Guipavas Airport, it is located only a short 33 minutes drive south of Roscoff. Car hire is available at Brest Airport from leading companies Avis, Europcar, Hertz, National Citer and Sixt. Book in advance online to secure the best deal, and to save having to queue and fill in forms on your arrival to the airport.

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).
