Explore Pontarlier

Famous for absinthe alcohol production up to 1915, and then for its ban thereafter, Pontarlier has become a popular place for tourists to visit. Recently the ban has been partially lifted and this has resulted in some distilleries once again producing absinthe. The town was also mentioned in the well known novel 'Les Miserables' written by Victor Hugo.

By opting for car hire in Pontarlier, tourists can make a small trip north to visit the Source de la Loue, the source of the River Loue, which is a small tributary off the Doubs River, high up in the Jura Mountains. Here walkers can take in the sights of the incredible rock formations and green vegetation.

Another great attraction is the Gouffre de Poudrey, a magnificent cave located only a 30 minute drive north of Pontarlier.


The French high speed rail network (TGV) travels direct from Paris to Pontarlier twice a day with a travel time of around three hours. Trains leaving from Lyon to Pontarlier take around two hours.

The Pontarlier Rail Station is conveniently located close to the town centre. The station has basic facilities such as toilets, newsagents, ATMs and vending machines. There are restaurants and cafes located outside of the station.

With many attractions outside of the town's centre and the scenic countryside, hiring a car is advised to get the most out of your holiday. Car rentals can be booked online with us in advance to ensure the best deal available. A hire car can be arranged for collection from anywhere in town, including at the Pontarlier Rail Station.

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?
