Rouen Guide

Guide

The capital of upper Normandy, Rouen, is one of France's great treasures. Steeped in history and plagued by misfortune, it was the stage in 1431 for the trial and execution of Joan of Arc. Taken by the English and then returned to French control in 1449, it certainly has plenty of history attached to it.  The city remains partly medieval, with many churches and old houses that still display signs of historic depth. Reserve car hire in Rouen with us today and travel around the Rouen and its beautiful surroundings at your own leisurely pace.

Explore Rouen

Rouen's striking Musée des Beaux-Arts is situated in the square Verdrel just east of the central Rue Jeanne d'Arc. This grand museum boasts works by some of France’s greatest impressionists.

On St-Laurent on Rue Jacques-Villon, behind the Beaux-Arts, is the Musée le Secq des Tournelles, where wrought-iron implements of torture can be seen on display. Alternatively, visit the Place du Vieux-Marché, where a 20 metre high cross marks the spot on which Joan of Arc was burnt at the stake. Not to be missed is Touen Cathedral and Philippe-August Castle, built in 1205 and the scene of the imprisonment and trial of Joan of Arc.

Rouen also has a selection of theatres including; Opéra de Rouen Haute Normandie, Théâtre des 2 Rives, Théâtre de la Canaille and La Rouge Mare.

Eating Out

Many of the restaurants are in Place du Vieux-Marché, where there's an excellent food market, while north of the food market there are some Tunisian takeaways and creperies. A few good bars are found on the streets between Rue Thiers and place du Vieux-Marché.

Transport

Rouen is easily accessed by rail and car. The main railway station in Rouen is Gare Rive Droite, located on Rue Jeanne-d'Arc. The railway station connects to the centre by the métro system. All buses except #2A from the Gare SNCF operate to the centre.

Rouen is within easy driving distance of Paris Orly Airport, located approximately 150kms southwest, and serviced by regular trains from the capital. Car hire is available at all Paris airports, as well as within Rouen itself. We highly advise all of our customers to book car hire in advance of travel in order to get the best deals, and to ensure a vehicle will be awaiting your arrival in Rouen.

TCAR public transport services operate throughout Rouen and service up to 45 communes. The buses are the cheapest way to get about, but you must be organised with bus timetables as you may find yourself waiting for hours for a bus.

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).
