Agen Car Rental Mini Guide

Agen, a charming town in southwestern France, serves as a gateway to the Aquitaine region. Nestled along the Garonne River, Agen is celebrated for its rich history, vibrant culture, and, notably, its famous prunes. For travelers seeking to experience the beauty of the region at their own pace, hiring a car in Agen is an excellent idea.

Nearest Airport: Agen La Garenne Airport, located roughly 5 kilometers from the city center, is the closest. The drive from the airport to downtown Agen is typically a swift 10-minute journey, making it exceptionally convenient for incoming visitors.

Road Conditions: Most roads in and around Agen are in commendable condition. Whether you're driving through the town's historic streets or venturing out into the countryside, you can expect smooth drives with clear signage to guide your way.

Traffic: Agen enjoys relatively light traffic most of the year. However, during local festivals or peak tourist seasons, you might experience some congestion in the town center. Planning your travels outside peak hours can help you avoid any potential delays.

Tolls: While Agen itself doesn't have toll roads, the nearby A62 motorway, connecting Bordeaux to Toulouse, is tolled. Ensure you're equipped with some change or a toll pass if you plan to use this route.

Clean Air Zones: Like many French towns, Agen is conscious of its environmental impact. While it doesn't have a permanent clean air zone, temporary restrictions can be imposed on days with particularly high pollution levels. Always check local advisories if driving during such times.

Recommended Attractions & Routes:

  1. Agen Cathedral: A UNESCO World Heritage site, this cathedral is a testament to Agen's rich history. It's located right in the town center, making it easily accessible by car.
  2. Walibi Sud-Ouest: Just a short 7-kilometer drive from Agen, this amusement park offers fun-filled adventures for the whole family.
  3. Museum of Fine Arts: Showcasing art from ancient times to the present, this museum in the heart of Agen is a treat for culture enthusiasts.

By hiring a car in Agen, you empower yourself to explore not just the town's attractions but also the picturesque landscapes and quaint villages of the Aquitaine region. Make sure to always have your driving license and necessary documents handy, and enjoy your journey through this enchanting part of France. With car hire at Bordeaux Airport so readily available and competitively priced, along with our unlimited mileage package, many visitors arrive into Bordeaux and make the 100km journey by road with their rental vehicle.
