Reunion Car Rental Mini Guide

Car Hire is available in Reunion and can be pre booked and collected form the Airport. Reunion surprisingly lacks the popularity of its Indian Ocean neighbours despite it being really easy to get to from France and, via short connecting flights, from the UK.

If you are travelling from the UK or any other parts of Europe, you will first need to get to Paris Orly or Paris Charles de Gaulle airports and then catch the twice weekly plane direct to Reunion. An alternative is to take the slightly longer route to Marseille and fly on from there. Reunion’s airport is located on the north coast of the island and has good access to the resorts of the west coast with your hire car  via the highway that circumnavigates the island.
