Very Accomadating
Pros: We made a last minute reservation for an automatic transmission car and they were great, specifically Aurielle who helped us was amazing. Despite not reserving it as such, we were able to pickup the car in the city and drop off at the airport for no additional fee, and got to add a GPS (which was a lifesaver). It made our last day a great one!

Long check in and car not ready
Pros: Long queue at Bordeaux airport with a time consuming check in process. Even then the car was not available despite reserved time so had to wait. However they did finally give another car which was a grade up.

Very helpful Staff in both Bordeaux and Barcelona
Pros: I made a mistake in the date of pick up and had to rent for one day prior to my official pick up time and the staff did everything possible to help make the impact of that as minimal as possible and retain the integretily of my American reservation rate saving me what could have been a thousand dollars in added costs.

21 Jan. 2017
Pros: In Bordeaux the 1st Lady with whom we discussed the deal seemed to be tricky and manipulative but the 2nd one who gave us the key and guided through a concrete car leease related details was excellent and very very helpful. In Bordeaux we received amazing service: quick, efficient and very courtous.
Cons: When taking the car in Barcelona and discussing what is available things were not very clear in the beginning and seemed to be a bit tricky and overwhelming.
2.0 Mediocre
17 Aug. 2017
Cons: We were threatened with a 1,000 Euro fee for returning the car two hours late. Each representative we spoke with gave a different story. Then no such fee was charged, again without explanation. Never again!

21 Jul. 2018
Pros: car was type we expected
Cons: they tried to charge me a different rate from the contract. Took 20 minutes to get resolved.Then they charge a lot to add second drivers. Got a flat tire, no spare, no compressor. They sent a tow truck (2.5 hours later). We had to go by taxi to local Avis office the following day to pick up replacement.
3.6 Mediocre
2 Jun. 2019
Pros: The staff was nice at the rental counter but could have been more helpful especially for car pick up.
Cons: They did not have the car that we rented and confirmed - Mercedes class C. They gave us a Renault Megane. The line was very long waiting for. > 40 min to pick up the car. The rental counter was convenient in the train terminal but it was difficult to find where the car was parked in 2 sep buildings

Drop-off charge or prepayment?
Cons: - Although I had prepayed the rental cost, I was told I needed to pay a "drop-off" charge which is "never" prepayed. That charge would have doubled the total cost of the trip. I did not accept it, and finally managed to go with the prepayment bill, but the rental car agent became very moody after this. - The rental cars in France are supposed to have some accessories such as a warning triangle, extra light bulbs and a blue parking card. I only found the first item in the car. - The water tank for windshield wiping was empty. Which I only discovered when the birds made a mess on the windshield. The day after, I had to use soap and hot water to clean the window. Without this, the visibility was very poor at sunset time.
5.6 Okay
16 Sep. 2017
Horrible customer service
Pros: I like the car
Cons: When we arrived, the car was not ready, so the person attending had to clean it up and prepare it. The worst part however was the return. The same guy was on the phone when I arrived and completely ignored me and another person for 10 minutes. When I gestured if it easy Ok to leave the keys, he pretty much insulted me. I travel around the world every month and always rent from different companies, but my last three Hertz experiences this year have been utter nonsense. I won't be renting from Hertz ever again.
4.4 Okay

Top tips for renting a car in Bordeaux

  • Whether a trip to a winery, the Stadium Matmut Atlantique to enjoy European football, or a visit to Le Lac in the west of the city, a rental car can bring you conveniently to all your dream destinations. Explore the famous wine region in your own time and pace and get the best out of the beautiful French landscape surrounding the city.
  • Pick up a rental car upon your arrival at the Bordeaux-Merignac Airport, located about 7 miles from the city center. Rental car companies like Avis, Europcar, Sixt, Hertz, or Firefly can be found in the connecting wing of A-B and offer vehicles in all sizes and shapes, depending on what you want to do on your trip and how much space is needed. The quickest way to Bordeaux is via the Avenue Francois Mitterand.
  • As Bordeaux is a popular wine region, wine tastings are among the most famous tourist activities in the city, and therefore drunk driving is particularly paid attention to by the authorities and met with severe consequences. Up to 0.05% BAC is legally permitted, so ensuring that the blood alcohol level does not rise above this percentage is crucial in order to avoid hefty fines, getting into accidents, and impoundment of the rental car.
  • Bordeaux City has many one-way streets, which can make navigating through the roads a bit of a challenge. Traffic and speed limit signs are also often not clearly marked, so adapting to the speed of other cars and generally driving defensively and attentively is important. When entering a roundabout, the car inside the roundabout always has the right of way.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Bordeaux for C$ 41 or less
  • Book your rental car in Bordeaux at least 6 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in Bordeaux are around 272% more expensive than airport locations on average
  • Economy rental cars in Bordeaux are around 64% cheaper than other car types, on average
