Important information about Bordeaux car hire

Can I drive out of France with a rental car from Bordeaux?

After picking up one of the cheap car rentals in Bordeaux, you might like to explore some neighbouring countries. Most Bordeaux car hire companies will allow you to drive into the most notable Schengen and European Union countries, but this depends on the agency and the type of vehicle you are hiring. For example, at present, Sixt does not permit customers hiring an Audi, BMW, Mercedes Benz, or Volkswagen to enter Croatia, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Slovakia and Slovenia, and luxury cars have even tighter restrictions. You must also inform your rental agency of your intention to cross the border, and an additional fee will usually be applicable. Failing to inform the provider of your car hire in Bordeaux might violate your rental agreement and void any insurance.

Can you hire a car in Bordeaux without a credit card?

Car hire agencies require a payment card for insurance against damage to the car or in the event of other unexpected costs arising during your car hire in Bordeaux. A rising number of people do not carry a credit card or prefer using a debit card these days, but unfortunately, not all Bordeaux car hire agencies will accept debit cards. For example, Goldcar and Avis accept debit cards at their Bordeaux branches while Hertz does not, so make sure to check with your car hire provider. Keep in mind that the company will also require a deposit or hold when you use a debit card. Make sure there is still enough money in the account to cover your travel expenses after the hold has been placed against your funds.

What driving laws should I keep an eye out for in Bordeaux?

Luckily, driving in France is not all that different from in the UK, with the main exception of traffic flowing on the right-hand side of the road. This means that you drive on the right and generally overtake on the left. When dealing with multiple lanes, however, vehicles may also overtake on the right. When it comes to roundabouts, the rules are the same as in the UK in reverse - give way to traffic on your left. At junctions, give way to vehicles approaching from your right unless you see a sign with a yellow diamond indicating who has priority. Stay safe by watching out for potentially unaware drivers. Between sunset and sunrise, remember to warn fellow drivers only by flashing your lights as the horn is reserved for emergencies. In built-up areas, the use of the horn is also prohibited. Limited paid street parking may be available in the city centre of Bordeaux, so it is advisable to park towards the outskirts of Bordeaux and take a tram into the city.

What documents does an international traveller need to hire a car in Bordeaux?

You must bring your driving licence, which you must have held for at least one year when you commence your car hire in Bordeaux. Additionally, an International Driving Permit will be required if the licence is not written in the Roman alphabet. You must be at least 21 years old to hire a car, and certain vehicles will be restricted to drivers older than this. Your car hire agency might also ask for a second form of identity, such as a passport. Lastly, remember your credit or debit card used for making the booking must be in the name of the driver. Any additional drivers will require the same documents.
