KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Tarbes

  • Use your cheap car hire in Tarbes to explore this affluent, historical part of Occitanie in France and have the freedom to venture not just locally, but far beyond the limits of where public transport can take you. In an excellent location just an hour away from the Pyrenees mountains and another 2 hours from the Atlantic Ocean, you will be based in a gorgeous commune that accommodates road trips on a whim. Tarbes is well-known for attracting a certain lifestyle that enjoys the incredible gastronomy at chic restaurants and the Halle Marcadieu food markets. History lovers enjoy the beautiful Jardin Massey and the Massey Museum for fine art. Napolean himself founded the Haras National de Tarbes stud farm, which has excellent equestrian events.
  • Upon arrival for your French adventure, you may collect your Tarbes car hire at the Tarbes Ossun Lourdes Airport (LDE). The airport is small but has car hire companies on-site at Arrivals or within reach via the free airport shuttle. These include Alamo, Enterprise, Avis, Europcar and Hertz. Once you have collected your vehicle, pop on the D921A and be in Tarbes in approximately 15min.
  • With your cheap car hire in Tarbes, you will need to adjust to driving on the right of the road. You will notice road rules are very similar to the UK, and most French local drivers are patient and polite. France has many cameras in place, which capture not just speeding but other traffic offences too, so do your best to stick to road rules. It is advisable to learn some of the language for signage, but if you are rusty, then consider a GPS turned on English mode. The French drinking and driving limit is 0.05%. These days, it’s recommended you take a portable breathalyser with you. Don’t wear headphones when you drive, stay buckled up and avoid using your horn too much, as this is not encouraged in French cities, unlike more Mediterranean cities where it’s quite common.
  • With your cheap car hire in Tarbes, you should encounter very few challenges, as roads are well-maintained, well-surfaced and thoroughly signed and marked. Tarbes, being in the south of France, has relatively decent weather with minimal snow. Rain is a given in winter, but as a UK driver, it will be easy for you to handle. You will be given a manual transmission vehicle from your car hire company, as this is the standard in the country. If you feel comfortable with automatic cars, pre-book and expect to pay slightly more.
  • Book your rental car in Tarbes at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

If you leave your car for the day, you could pay between €5 (£4.29) and €10 (£8.58).
