Location information for Montpellier

Introduction

Montpellier is the capital of the Languedoc-Roussillon region in the south of France. The city has an historic center with small narrow streets and beautiful squares. La Place de la Comédie is in the heart of the city and is so-called because the square is the domain of street artists and musicians. Montpellier has a lovely Cathedral and interesting museums such as the Fabre art museum.

Population

The city has 250,000 inhabitants but in the entire urban area of Montpellier there are half a million people.

Location

Montpellier lies in a hilly area in the south of France, about 10 minutes from the coast. The city is built along the Lez River which flows out into the Mediterranean Sea.

Economy

Montpellier is a center for science and research, mainly in the field of bio-technology (research for new medicine, but also development for agriculture) and IT & communication technology. Furthermore tourism is of great importance. The city not only attracts tourists, but also business travelers as there are relatively many congresses.

Airports

The city's airport, Aéroport Montpellier Méditerranée, lies 7 kilometers southeast of the city. Some airlines only fly to Montpellier during summer or have a less frequent schedule during winter.

Public transport

Montpellier's public transport consists of street cars and buses. Two street cars form a sort of an X that crosses in the city center, a third street car line is in construction and will be ready to use in 2012. During the day, street cars run every 3 or 5 minutes, at night the frequency is less. The street cars run until midnight, unlike the buses that run until 9.00 p.m. For beach visitors, bus line 28 to the beach Palavas les Flots is the most interesting, although it is better to go by car since you have to walk 15 minutes from the last stop to the beach. Furthermore there is a night bus from the central bus station to the discos and night clubs around the city.

Traffic and parking

Take into account that the center of Montpellier can become very busy and that the heart of the city is pedestrianised. There are several parking garages, but finding a free parking space can sometimes be a challenge. The car is an excellent means of transport to discover the area or go to the beach, but if you go to the city center it is better to park your car at the end of the street car line and continue by street car.

Hotels

There is a large variety of accommodation to offer in and around Montpellier, from four-star hotels and resorts to basic hostels and bed & breakfasts. There are trailer parks in the city area as well. In general it is not difficult to find basic accommodation but it is different for the more luxurious hotels, which are often fully-booked during the many congresses that are held in Montpellier.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is EasyTerra Car Hire the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours). Which car rental companies are compared by EasyTerra Car Hire? at this location
