KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Chamonix

  • Driving car rentals in Chamonix will allow you to enjoy this breathtaking resort city without being confined to public train or bus schedules and destinations. Outside the city limits, you can explore The Parc National de la Vanoise, the Matterhorn, and the Parc Naturel Regional du Massif Des Bauges. And since Chamonix is nestled at the borders of France, Switzerland, and Italy, you can use Chamonix car rentals to explore cities such as Lyon, Geneva, and Milan.
  • Located 1.5 hours southwest of Chamonix, the Aeroport Chambery Savoie Mount Blanc (CMF) is a good location for securing Chamonix car rentals. Car rental agencies are easy to locate in this small, single-terminal airport. Rental cars are parked in the parking lot outside the terminal, and this is where you will return your vehicle, as well. The drive from Chambery Airport to Chamonix is a scenic one through breathtaking mountainous landscapes.
  • Driving in Chamonix is easy and pleasant. There is a dual highway that takes you in to the commune, and the ride is devoid of nausea-inducing switchbacks. When you are driving through nearby tunnels, such as the Mont Blanc Tunnel, traffic is strictly regulated in terms of speed and distance between cars. This can cause congestion and long delays near tunnels, especially on weekdays. The best time to travel through the tunnels is on Sundays, when trucks are forbidden to use them. Also, those driving car rentals in Chamonix should be vigilant, always on the look-out for cyclists, since cycling around Chamonix is popular.
  • One of the biggest driving challenges you might encounter in Chamonix is driving in the snow. For those driving car rentals in Chamonix in the snowy months, make sure the tires on your car have good traction and that the windshield wipers are in good working order. You should also make sure there is an ice scraper and a snow brush in the car for clearing the windshield. When you are driving around in snowy weather, it is a good idea to keep your gas tank topped-up in case road closures force you to take an unexpected detour. Also, when you are driving up hill in the snow, do everything possible to keep the car moving forward.

Very smelly interior. There was an overpowering smell of disinfectant trying to mask either body odor or cigarette smoke or both.

I’ve been renting a cat from sallanches for over a month now. It has been the worst experience renting a car anywhere in the world I’ve ever had. And also the most expensive. The eurocar representative Sam at sallanches is not to be trusted on any level. He rented me a car that every single panel has been quite severely damaged. I have personal photos of those damages from when I collected the car. Why does eurocar rent cars to customers with damage like this? I had no choice. I’ve tried multiple times to speak to a representative at customer service at eurocar to discuss. Doesn’t exist. Avoid renting a car from eurocar at sallanches at all costs. It’s a horrible experience. The guy Sam is literally out of control. It’s not over yet…..I’m sure the experience will only get worse. As long as I never have to see Sam at sallanches again I’ll survive.
