Top tips for renting a car in Brittany

  • Rennes Bretagne Airport (RNS) is a significant gateway to Brittany, and for travelers looking to explore the area, Brittany car rentals are a great option. Conveniently located within the airport, near Terminal 2, the car rental center can be easily accessed by following the signs upon exiting the arrivals hall. Whether you’re arriving with family or alone, car rentals in Brittany come in a diverse array of vehicles to cater to different needs. Depending on their preferences, travelers can choose from a range of options, including economy cars, SUVs, and minivans. With reputable providers like Avis, Budget, Hertz, and Enterprise, Brittany car rentals at Rennes Bretagne Airport can be acquired in a hassle-free way so you can begin enjoying your trip in the enchanting region of Brittany.
  • In major Brittany cities like Rennes and Nantes, weekday rush hours from approximately 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. can result in heavy traffic congestion. Popular tourist routes along the coast, such as the N165 expressway leading to coastal towns like Saint-Malo and Quiberon, can also experience increased traffic. Planning journeys outside peak hours and staying informed about road conditions will contribute to a smoother driving experience in Brittany.
  • In Brittany, France, the car seat policy for children aligns with national regulations. Children under the age of 10 and measuring less than 1.35 meters (4 feet 5 inches) must use appropriate child restraints while traveling in a vehicle. Infants and toddlers up to one year old or weighing less than 9 kg. (20 lbs.) must be secured in rear-facing car seats. Children between one and four years old or weighing 9 kg. (20 lbs.) and 18 kg. (40 lbs.) should be placed in forward-facing car seats with harnesses. Additionally, children between four and 10 years old or weighing 18 kg. (40 lbs.) and 36 kg. (80 lbs.) must use booster seats.
  • When driving in Brittany, France, especially for those in car rentals in Brittany, opting for a compact or mid-sized car is a wise choice. Brittany boasts a blend of picturesque coastal towns and charming countryside villages. Still, some areas can have narrow streets and limited parking spaces, particularly in historic town centers like Locronan, Pont-Aven, and Concarneau. Choosing a smaller car offers better maneuverability, making navigating through tight spots and parking in these locales easier. Moreover, compact or mid-sized cars typically provide better fuel efficiency, allowing travelers to enjoy their journey without worrying about frequent fuel stops.
