KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Nantes

  • If you want a convenient ride in your cheap car rentals in Nantes, here are some of the city's key roads. The N165 is the main thoroughfare, connecting Nantes to neighbouring cities including Saint-Nazaire, La Roche-sur-Yon, La Baule, and Chateaubriant along the Loire River. The N137, often known as the "Green Ring," is a highway that goes all the way around the city, in the direction of the north and the west. The N844 traverses the city from east to west, linking the old district to Saint-Herblain and Rezé. From west to east, the N847 crosses the city, linking with the N165 in the central business district.
  • You must be at least 21 years old to hire a car from Nantes car rentals. You must have held a valid driver's licence for at least a year before the rental. At the time of rental, you must additionally submit a valid passport, insurance documentation, and a major credit card in your name. An international driving permit may be required if your driver's licence is not in English. Drivers under the age of 25 may be subject to an extra fee. Additional terms and restrictions include a required minimum rental time and the payment of a daily rate increase for each day over the initial rental term.
  • If you're looking to avoid congestion while riding your cheap car rentals in Nantes, here are some of the city's congestion-free toll roads. The A11 is a toll road that links many cities in the area, including Nantes and Angers. The A83 is a toll road that links many cities in the area, including Nantes and La Roche-sur-Yon. The A13 is a toll road that links many cities in the area, including Nantes and Saint-Nazaire. Lastly, the A87 is a toll road that links Rennes and Nantes. Depending on the distance travelled and the kind of vehicle, different tolls are charged at different toll plazas on these highways.
  • There is lots of history and culture to explore in Nantes such as the Dobree Museum, Jardin des Plantes, Castle of the Dukes of Brittany, and Nantes Cathedral. With a rental car you can visit all of the attractions while also enjoying a picturesque drive along the coast to beach resorts like Pornic or Le Croisic.
  • Nantes Airport is a short drive from Bouguenais and offers both domestic and international flights. Although it is not a very large airport, it provides everything you’ll need for a comfortable trip. This includes quick access to rental car agencies like Sixt, Enterprise, Thrifty, and Hertz. Most of the agencies have desks right inside the airport and those who don’t provide a shuttle to their off-site locations.
  • Nantes has strict driving laws so you’ll want to be very careful and cautious when you are driving there. For one thing, don’t get distracted. Eating, texting, talking on the phone (without a headset), or applying makeup while driving are all illegal behavior in France. Additionally, speed traps are not uncommon around Nantes, so be alert and always prepared to slow down.
  • A pretty big city, Nantes’ metro area can have some hectic traffic. It is especially busy around the downtown area during the morning and evening commutes.

I had a great experience renting a car. My front counter person was very attentive, personable and spoke good English! He helped me switch the language on my navigation system, as I couldn’t without the knowledge of the French language. The return was easy as well.
