Car Hire Rennes Useful Information

Hiring a car in Rennes, France, can provide several benefits and the flexibility to explore the beautiful Brittany region and beyond. Here are some advantages and points of interest to consider:

Benefits of Hiring a Car in Rennes:

Freedom and Flexibility: Having a car gives you the freedom to explore at your own pace, allowing you to visit off-the-beaten-path destinations and customize your itinerary.

Convenience: It's convenient for reaching attractions, especially those located in the countryside or outside the city center.

Access to Remote Areas: Brittany has stunning coastlines, picturesque villages, and natural landscapes that are best explored by car, as some areas may not be easily accessible by public transportation.

Time Efficiency: You can save time when visiting multiple places in a day, as you're not limited by fixed public transportation schedules.

Distance from the Airport:

Rennes–Saint-Jacques Airport (RNS) is the primary airport serving Rennes. The airport is located approximately 7 kilometers (about 4 miles) southwest of the city center. The drive from the airport to downtown Rennes is relatively short and typically takes around 15-20 minutes, depending on traffic.

Driving in Rennes:

Rennes is a mid-sized French city with generally well-maintained roads and clear signage. Traffic conditions in Rennes are moderate compared to larger cities like Paris, but it can get busier during peak commuting hours. The city center has narrow streets and may have restrictions on vehicle access during certain hours (Zones à Circulation Restreinte or ZCR), so it's essential to follow local regulations.

Places to Drive and Visit Comfortably:

Mont Saint-Michel: This iconic UNESCO World Heritage Site is about a 1.5 to 2-hour drive from Rennes. It's known for its stunning medieval abbey perched on a tidal island.

Saint-Malo: Located approximately an hour's drive from Rennes, Saint-Malo is a historic walled city known for its maritime heritage and beautiful beaches.

Côte d'Émeraude (Emerald Coast): This scenic coastal region stretches from Saint-Malo to Cancale and offers picturesque beaches, cliffs, and charming towns.

Dinan: About a 45-minute drive from Rennes, Dinan is a medieval town with well-preserved ramparts, cobblestone streets, and timber-framed houses.

Brocéliande Forest: Located less than an hour from Rennes, this enchanting forest is steeped in Arthurian legend and offers beautiful hiking trails.

 Enjoy your trip to Rennes and the Brittany region!
