KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Chartres

  • Opting for car hire in Chartres, rather than relying on public transport, affords you several considerable benefits. First off, you'll have the freedom to journey at your own speed. Instead of having to structure your days around public transport timetables, you can do exactly what you want, when you want, and alter your plans as you go. Secondly, although Chartres itself is easy to walk around, having a car at your disposal can make it much simpler to explore the broader Eure-et-Loir region. You could experience the charm of the countryside, or perhaps visit some of the quaint villages in the Loire Valley. If you're interested in visiting larger cities, using your Chartres car hire, you could even drive to Orléans or to Paris, which is approximately 90 minutes away by car.
  • Upon your arrival at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG), after collecting your luggage, proceed to the car hire area located in the Arrivals section of the terminal. There, you'll find various car hire companies like Avis, Hertz, and Europcar. If you haven't made a reservation, you’ll be able to check the availability with the hire desks. Choosing car hire in Chartres will require you to present your driving licence, passport, and credit card, so make sure you have these to hand. Before agreeing to hire a car, carefully inspect it for any existing damage, make a note of it, and report it to the hire car agent.
  • After you’ve committed to car hire in Chartres, you’ll find driving there a straight-forward experience. The city has well-maintained roads and clear signage, facilitating navigation for drivers. While the historic centre has narrow streets, they are typically well-signposted. Traffic congestion is generally less compared to larger cities.
  • Though well-signposted, unfamiliar tourists may struggle navigating through the city's narrow streets, and finding parking in the bustling city centre can also be a challenge. This is especially true during peak tourist season when there is heavy traffic. Additionally, drivers should bear in mind that French driving customs may be different from what they’re used to and should remain alert. Although English is fairly widely spoken in France, it is not guaranteed, visitors may benefit from learning some basic phrases in French.

Cons:

We dropped the car at the train station in Chartres. There were no directions in our rental agreement as to where the office was, other than the train station address. It turns out there were specific parking places in the train parking garage and we were to turn keys into the train ticketing office! (our hotel called Avis on our behalf since our French language skills are not good to obtain this info)

Car had extensive scratches and dings and I found many more they had not documented. When I brought this to the agent's attention, he informed me that he could not take pictures of it or Hertz would automatically charge me for having documented their pre-existing damage! Had to drop off keys in a night drop because in Europe they don't work on Sundays. Yet they told me the car would be my responsibility until they open Monday morning!
