Good car, poor service at La RochelleCar was clean & worked well.Service from the Hertz/Thrifty staff at La Rochelle airport, specifically Sophie T. When she asked for my CC, she told me I would need to buy insurance. I declined, explaining this was covered by my CC. She expressed shock at this, and explained that if I did that the car would have no insurance. After several minutes back & forth she eventually conceded that yes the car was insured by Thrifty, and that my CC would cover the CDWs. She was not at all happy about this. On returning the car, having filled up the tank 5 kilometers away at the HyperU, she stated that the tank was not full, so she could not close out the contract & return the deposit. I feel this was in retaliation for not taking out their very expensive CDW insurance. 4 days after returning the car I still do not see any transaction relating to this car hire on my CC, so do not know what is happening with this.

Top tips for renting a car in La Rochelle

  • Car hire in La Rochelle will give you the chance to properly explore this French resort town on the Atlantic Coast. It’s a city steeped in history, offering many sights and experiences tucked away in the city itself, or in the coastal countryside. Ile de Re is a 30-minute drive away for nature walks and quiet beaches, connected to the city by a bridge almost 2 miles long. In the heart of the city is Vieille Ville (Old Town) where 15th-century French life has been preserved. La Rochelle is also famed for its many museums, the pick of which are the natural history museum, Musée d'Histoire Naturelle, and the large fine arts museum, Musée des Beaux-Arts.
  • You can have all your La Rochelle car hire needs met at the city’s international airport once you’ve landed, La Rochelle – Île de Ré Airport. All the main car hire operators have their offices there – you’ll find them next door to the passenger car park directly opposite the arrivals hall exit. The hire company concierge will take the 2min walk with you to show you exactly where to find your car. From there it’s only a 5-minute drive to the centre of town. The airport is located on Rue du Jura.
  • La Rochelle is equal parts bustling maritime port, coastal beach resort and one of France’s most historic cities, so you’ll need to be on your toes, as you’ll encounter all manner of traffic in the centre of the town. The vehicular congestion is moderate, except at rush hour, but the city has a widespread cycling culture, in the old French tradition, so you can expect local inhabitants on bicycles wherever you drive within the city limits and the adjoining residential areas.
  • La Rochelle experiences the typical rush hour pattern of a commercial harbour city, so congestion is at its peak at around 08:00, reaching the same levels from 16:00 to 17:00. However, the real quirk about this city is that it also has a significant bicycle rush hour. You’ll be virtually surrounded by large groups of cyclists, commuting to and from work. Cycling traffic can get particularly dense in the town centre and inner suburbs. One of the busiest roads for vehicular traffic is the N237 especially at the large junction with the N537, just after the Avenue Raymond Poincare intersection.
