There is no better way to see everything Bordeaux has to offer than by getting behind the wheel of your Dollar rental car. Don't waste time waiting for the bus or hailing taxis to go to the sights. Having your own ride allows you to go to the spots you want to see the most, whenever you want. Make your next vacation to France more enjoyable with a Dollar car rental.
With all there is to do in and around the Bordeaux region, you'll want to take in more than just the area surrounding your hotel during your visit. Whether you have to try that well-reviewed bistro across town or try some of the local hot spots, you'll want your own set of wheels to explore as much as you can while on your trip. Whatever you have planned in Bordeaux, if you want to get the most out of your time in the city, having your auto is key.
CarRentals.com works with some of the top dealers in the world. Dollar prides itself on superlative customer service. Dollar's attention to customer service and fleet of quality rentals is complemented by their impressive vacation planning and business travel services.
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best price, no matter when you book. However, booking ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Be sure to go over the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
You'll need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
Dollar's minimum age to rent a car in Bordeaux is 21. Take time to go over Dollar's policies, as there may be added fees if you are under 25 or for higher category rentals in particular.
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Bordeaux. Economy or compact vehicles are ideal for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a mid-size vehicle or SUV will have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Bordeaux trip can choose a higher-end car model like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
In France you do need to have insurance before you rent from Dollar. Many major credit cards (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) generally provide some coverage. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Bordeaux. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Dollar does require a deposit when you book your rental car. Dollar will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
We recommend a full tank policy. You receive the car 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 gas station before you bring it back to Dollar.
Bordeaux certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Dollar usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at another Dollar. Be aware there may be an additional fee when you pick one-way.
With so much to do and see in Bordeaux, having the keys to your own set of wheels lets you explore at your own pace. When you're ready to explore more of France, you can leave wherever you like, without having to hanging out a stop waiting for the bus or wave down a cab.
Before you head out of town, book your Dollar Bordeaux car rental and zip off to take in all the must-see sights at your leisure. Book with CarRentals.com and drive the highway in Bordeaux, France.
