Considered to be one of the greatest wine regions in the world, Bordeaux is also an architectural jewel that provides a picturesque backdrop of 18th century France. Britain’s influence is apparent in old quarters of the city, where many medieval events are marked in history. Visit the Cathédrale Saint-André and stop at a patisserie along the way to enjoy canelé, the local pastry delicacy. Pass by the Grand Theatre and Place de la Bourse or stroll down the banks of the Garonne to admire the dazzling beauty of the city.
Explore the renowned vineyards of this region or visit a town along the Arcachon Bay, just one hour from Bordeaux. Travel to the marshes of the Marais Poitevin or head to the Pyrénées National Park near the Spanish border. From Bordeaux, you can also travel to the French cities of Bayonne or Toulouse within a few hours.

Bordeaux is the perfect city to start your self-drive holiday around Europe. Travel to other continental Western European countries is usually permitted with no additional fees or restrictions for most vehicle categories. Some vehicle categories, such as luxury cars, have additional restrictions on international travel so it is always best to check at the time of booking that your planned itinerary will be permitted with the particular car you book. You can contact us for more information on multi-country rentals.
As with many cities, Bordeaux can be congested in the city centre and it may be difficult to find parking. Car parks can also be quite expensive. However, Park and Ride (Parc-relais) stations are located around the outskirts of the city centre and are generally located at tram stations for visitors to take public transit into the city. Unlimited travel for one day is €4.10 and for one week is €10.80.
Many motorways in France have tolls, both in and outside of urban areas. Toll charges depend on the distance and type of vehicle. Cash and credit are usually accepted, though booths may not always have personnel available, so try to carry smaller amounts in case exact change is required.
