Saint Malo Airport Mini Guide
Why Shouldn’t I Take my car Across the Channel on the Ferry?
Ferry travel for a car with two people can cost up to £400 in peak season for a fortnight and on top of that there’s the expense of petrol to get to the ferry port. With Ryanair flights from only £20 each way and very low cost car hire at St Malo Airport with Rhino, you’ll save a lot of money.
What can I do in Saint Malo?
Unusually for a city in northern France, St Malo is a walled city. The walls were largely destroyed in World War II but were carefully rebuilt in the aftermath. Within the city walls you’ll find the old city called ‘Intramuros’ with its pretty streets lined with typically French cafes and bars. The city is home to the world’s first tidal power station, built to take advantage of the huge tidal variation in the area.
How can I get to St Malo?
There are two airlines that fly to St Malo with Aurigny Air Services flying from Guernsey and Ryanair flying from UK airports which include East Midlands
and Leeds Bradford
. Once in St Malo there are no buses from the airport so taxi or car hire are your only options. The centre of Dinard is only fifteen minutes away whilst St Malo is 25 minutes distance and Rennes just under an hour. Car hire is much the preferred option with so much to see in Brittany that is only effectively reached using a hire car.
What is the Airport Like?
It’s small and looks like a seventies secondary school and has very limited facilities. There are car rental desks of three companies and a single restaurant – the Bar Resto de L’Aeroport. No shops are found at the airport so you’ll need to plan many of your requirements before you get to the airport. Bear in mind that the longest flight is under two hours so you shouldn’t suffer unduly. There are also no jet bridges so a walk to and from the aircraft is necessary.
