Located in the north-west corner of the French overseas island of Reunion, Le Port is a major town and, unsurprisingly, a port. The port can dock large vessels from its location in the western Indian Ocean since being artificially excavated during the 1880s, when facilities in the capital district of Saint-Denis proved to be insufficient.
The right-angled shaped port is one of the few tourist attractions in the town, but there are good opportunities here for those who are interested in sailing and fishing. If you want to explore the island further however, the city has been linked to most points by an easily navigated paved road since the railway closed in 1962. The best thing to do is to pick up some car hire at Le Port.
If you take your cheap car hire at Le Port to the north of Saint-Denis, you will find the capital city of Le Chaudron. The city is mostly know for its violent riots over mass unemployment in the 1990s, and although unemployment is still high in the area, Chaudron is becoming a popular place to visit.
Some of the city's more positive achievements include the AS Chaudron football club, who you can watch play at the local stadium, and Kom Zot, famous in the reggae scene. Chaudron is probably the most built-up part of the island, but also the best spot for those seeking a good choice of restaurants and nightlife.
The surrounding area of Saint-Denis is also good to explore from car rental in Le Port. The Leon Dierx Museum has an impressive selection of paintings and sculptures to gaze upon, while the Jardin de l'Etat is a great spot for those wanting to relax in the quite for a while.

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.
