If you want to see everything Bordeaux has to offer, there is no better way to do so from behind the wheel of a rental car from Avis. Don't waste time waiting for the bus or hailing taxis to go to the sights. Having your own car allows you to go to the sites you want to see the most, when you want. Make your next vacation to France more enjoyable with an Avis car rental.
With all there is to do in and around the Bordeaux region, you'll be wanting to take in more than your hotel room during your stay. Whether you have to check out that well-reviewed bistro across town or see some of the local hot spots, you'll need your own set of wheels to see as much as possible while on your trip. Whatever you have planned in Bordeaux, if you wish to get the most out of your visit, having access to your vehicle is a must.
We work with some of the top rental car businesses in the business. The first rent-a-car company to be located in an airport, Avis has over seventy years of providing rental cars to travelers from all over. With over 5,000 locations globally and an assorted fleet of automobiles, Avis is sure to give you a great experience from start to finish.
We strive to get you the best price, whether you reserve your vehicle. However, getting ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Be sure to not add an additional driver and check the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Make sure to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
Avis's minimum age to rent a car in Bordeaux is 18. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Avis's policy to find out what the total cost is for you.
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Bordeaux. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and great for short commutes. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a sedan or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Bordeaux trip can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
In France you do need to have insurance before you rent. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Avis requires a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Avis will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Bordeaux. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the model and make of the vehicle.
We advise a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to Avis.
Bordeaux certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Avis offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at another location. Don't forget there may be an additional fee when you choose one-way.
With so much to do and see in Bordeaux, having the keys to your own auto lets you explore at your own pace. When you're ready to see more of France, you can go wherever you like, without trying to hail a taxi or sign up for a ride-share.
Before your next vacation, book your Avis Bordeaux car rental and zip off to take in all the must-do activities. Go with CarRentals.com and drive the road in Bordeaux, France.
