Vannes Airport Guide

Car Hire

Vannes Meucon Airport, also known as Vannes Golfe du Morbihan Airport, is a general aviation airport located about nine miles north of the city of Vannes. Vannes is situated right by the Gulf of Morbihan, in the heart of France's Brittany region, which is known for its distinct Celtic customs. Apart from its local culture, Brittany is also known for its archaeological sites, beaches with resorts and seaside rentals, and idyllic countryside, all of which are best experienced by driving in this beautiful region of northwest France.

Who to Book With
Being a general aviation airport means that prior arrangement is necessary if you need car rental when you arrive at Vannes Airport. This is, of course, easily arranged online via a comparator site. Otherwise, the city of Vannes itself has several car hire agencies. Many depots are found in the area around Vannes Railway Station, including the offices of National/Citer, Avis, Hertz, Sixt, Services Plus and Europcar.

Need to Know Essentials
You will need to show the following documents at vehicle collection:

- International Driving Permit or full UK driving licence

When using any of the major highways, you need to be ready to pay tolls. You can pay via credit card or you can buy a transponder chip at Sanef for your card. When you have this chip, you can breeze through the toll stations by using the automatic booth or the télépéage. The city of Vannes itself is easy to navigate on foot. You can park your car at either Le Port Parking Q-park or Republique Plaza Vinci Parc and explore the city from there.

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).
