Tignes Guide

Tignes is a man-made ski resort which is actually the highest on the Alps. It is made up of three areas: Tignes le Lavachet, Tignes Le Lac and Val Claret and boasts some of the best skiing in the world. By arranging cheap car hire in Tignes, you will be able to easily make your way to the foot of the mountain as well as explore the towns and villages which can be found here.

People do not visit Tignes to sightsee, they arrive for one reason and one reason only; skiing. For those who do not ski, there is very little else on offer. Visitors will find a small selection of restaurants as well as limited shopping opportunities and a sports centre.

The nearest international airport can be found in Geneva which is approximately 3 hours, 30 minutes away by car. Geneva itself is home to many beautiful buildings, fascinating museums and an abundance of shops. It is surrounded by beautiful countryside which is found directly below Tignes. It is perfect for exploring with cheap car hire in Tignes.

Organising car rental in Tignes will allow you to travel to and from the airport in comfort. Despite arriving here with the primary goal of skiing, hiring a car will also let you explore the outdoors. There are many villages which boast traditional houses, historic building and friendly local restaurants and pubs. Without a car, you won't be able to see any of the local scenery.

Tignes is very popular, especially in the peak skiing season of November through until May. If you are thinking of organising car hire, it is advisable to book it in advance so that you are not left disappointed when you arrive at the airport. If you fancy making a real holiday, you could fly into Lyon international airport, pick up your car hire in Tignes and drive along the stunning country roads to the foot of the mountain.

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.
