KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Brest

  • If you are visiting Brittany, France, consider doing yourself a favor by getting Brest car rentals to explore the city and destinations outside the city. Unlike public transportation, which often gets noisy and crowded, car rentals in Brest allow you to drive and not depend on third-party transportation services, which are usually costly and unreliable. You can drive and explore multiple places, including the Port of Brest, Oc’eanopolis, Point de I’Iroise, Port de Recouvrance, Brest’s Naval Museum, and Fort de Bertheaume. You can also explore nearby beaches like Rade de Brest and Pointe du Petit Minou.
  • Brest Guipavas Airport (BES) is the nearest airport to Brest, about 14 km (8.69 miles) from the city center. If you fly into Brest, you will likely land at the airport. Take advantage of the many car rental agencies operating their desks on-site and acquire your Brest car rentals. The car rental desks are inside the terminal building across from the baggage claim area. The popular car rental agencies are National, Alamo, Hertz, Budget, Goldcar Rentals SP, Citer, Thrifty, Rhodium, Europcar, and Sixt.
  • As a small city in Brittany, France, finding narrow roads and one-way streets in Brest is typical. However, driving your car rentals in Brest should be manageable. But you should be more attentive when driving in the city as it has a fair share of challenges. For example, encountering jaywalkers in the city is unsurprising, as pedestrians may overlook crosswalk rules. Keep a keen eye on them to avoid hitting them. Bikers and motorists use the same lanes. Sadly, bikers often disregard traffic regulations. Pay attention when approaching and overtaking them. Approach roundabouts, intersections, and populated areas cautiously.
  • Like other cities in France, Brest experiences significant traffic congestion during rush hours. Most residents access the city center with private vehicles, causing considerable traffic snarl-ups on most city roads and streets. Typically, the city experiences rush hours from 8 am to 10 am and from 5 pm to 8 pm. Avoid bumping into heavy traffic while driving your car rentals during rush hours. Some areas worth avoiding are commuter zones and narrow busy streets, as they often experience heavy traffic.

If you consider traveling and exploring some of the city’s off-road locations, look for a well-raised vehicle to help you navigate the bad roads. In this case, an SUV is a good option. Solo travelers should look for a smaller vehicle. It saves money and time, requiring less fuel and a smaller parking lot. Those traveling in a group of three or four should look for an intermediate or standard.

Booked the car because it was about 30 euros on Kayak. Turns out, I ended up having to pay 109 euros for the rental. Total rip off!

Pros:

Friendly staff, all of whom spoke English. They offered us an automatic and upgrade of our car with no extra fees. Drop off at CDG was exceedingly easy! Easier than at most US airports for sure. Overall a great experience.

Cons:

Where we picked up the car at the train station in Brest would have been super sketchy if it had been evening or after dark. Fine during the day.
