Troyes Station Guide

Car Hire

With frequent intercity rail services from Paris, Troyes Rail Station provides a convenient access point for the historic delights of Troyes itself and the attractions of the surrounding Aube Department. A 13th century cathedral, numerous timber-framed houses, museums and gourmet restaurants ensure Troyes remains a favourite with tourists. Daytrip options in the locality with car hire include the nearby Orient Forest and the town of Aix-en-Othe.

Who to Book With
With an office outside the station on Rue de Ravelin, Avis is the obvious choice for a rental, but not the only one. The local Hertz depot is on nearby Rue Voltaire. Other rental vehicle suppliers working out of offices here include French national company Ada and Iter. Searching online provides the best daily rates for all the suppliers offering service at Troyes Rail Station.

Best Time to Go
The weather in Troyes between May and September tends to be sunny and dry. Temperatures are consistently above the 20°C mark and ensure visitors are able to enjoy sightseeing and the city’s al fresco café scene. If possible, it is better to avoid August because French people take their holidays at this time and the cost of accommodation and car rental shoots up.

Need to Know Essentials
The rental firm clerk will need to see the following documents when you collect your vehicle:

- A valid UK driver’s licence or an International Driving Permit
- Your passport or another document that confirms your ID
- The debit or credit card you made the booking with
- A printout of the reservation showing its unique serial number
