KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Calais

  • Enjoy a trip in the north of France at your leisure, with Calais car hire putting you in the driving seat for your adventure. Don’t wait around for buses or taxis, which will likely slow you down – instead, get all the flexibility you need with car hire in Calais. A city steeped in history, you’ll find it much easier to visit popular tourist areas such as the Watchtower and Fort Nieulay by car than by other methods of transport. Alternatively, you can take a trip to a destination outside the city, such as Dunkirk, which is about a 35min drive away. Here you can explore the famous city which is the location from where Allied soldiers were evacuated during World War Two.
  • The largest airport close to Calais is about a 1h 20min drive from the city centre. At Lille Lesquin Airport (LIL), there are various companies you can hire a car from for your onward journey. Hertz, Enterprise and Sixt all have branches in the main terminal building, so it won’t take long once you land before you are setting off to continue your journey. You can find the car hire kiosks on Level Two of the airport. There are also other car hire companies, such as Avis, outside the terminal building on the main thoroughfare, opposite the airport parking area. As there is only one terminal at this airport, you won’t need to transfer to get to the car rental offices.
  • Calais looks out over the English Channel. It’s a very popular area for British tourists, who get the ferry to and from the UK, so the roads are often very busy. In the city centre, tourists may be unfamiliar with the road system, so keep an eye out for pedestrians stepping into the street. There is also a big cycling culture in France, with a major cycle route going through the port city of Calais. Expect lots of cyclists weaving in and out of traffic on the roads and be aware of your surroundings when you are turning.
  • When you have your Calais car hire sorted, be prepared for busier periods during rush hour, the same as in most cities, when locals will be starting and finishing work. This tends to be between 07:00 and 09:00 and again from 17:00 to 19:00, so it’s advisable to avoid travelling during these times. Throughout the year, but especially in the summer, the roads will also be busy with tourists who are going to and leaving the ferry port. This can make roads, especially the N216, much busier than usual. It’s hard to avoid, as there is often a constant flow of ferries to and from the UK, but if possible try to travel when there isn’t a scheduled ferry.

Definitely would use these guys if we visit Calais again. When I checked in the staff member was so friendly although we both had a language barrier (mind you his English was better than my French. The manger could speak very good English and was also very friendly. I also got an upgrade which was good even though it was only two days. There was an issue booking the insurance and the person serving sorted that out also as I had elected for pre pay. A note to carrental.com when our booking came through I didn’t have the insurance I added and the link to do this wouldn’t work so you need to update your procedures. Luckily the staff at Calais were amazing.
