Location information for Nantes

Introduction

Although Nantes suffered heavy damage during World War II, there is much beauty to discover in this city. The historical center houses, amongst others, the impressive Cathedral of Nantes and the Castle of the Dukes of Brittany, where nowadays the historical museum is located. Nantes is also the birthplace of Jules Verne, and you can visit his house of birth on the Île Feydeau in Loire.

Population

The city has almost 3 million inhabitants.

Location

Nantes lies in the west of France on the Loire river, not far from the Atlantic coast. Although the city doesn't officially belong to Brittany, Nantes is indeed a Breton city, where Breton is spoken by many people.

Economy

Nantes has always been an important port city. The port activities no longer occur in the city center, but further west, near St. Nazaire. It is one of the major French ports for the import of raw materials and oil. Thus related to the oil refineries and chemical industries. Ship and mechanical engineering are other pillars of local economy, as well as the food industry. 

Airports

The international airport Nantes Atlantique lies eight kilometers south of the city. It is the largest airport in western France, with connections to several French and European cities. 

The airport is easily accessible by rental car: from the Nantes ring road, take the Porte de Grand Lieu exit.

Public transportation

Nantes has an excellent public transportation system, consisting of trams (three lines), buses and the so-called Navibus (ferries).

Traffic and parking

Although many streets in the historic center of Nantes are only accessible to pedestrians and bicycles, you will have no trouble to drive around the city with a rental car. There are various parking garages in and around the city. We recommend you to explore the various attractions around Nantes with a rental car. Firstly, the prehistoric monuments at Carnac: large single standing stones (menhirs), stone circles and burial mounds. The towns Lorient, Vannes and La Baule are also worth a visit. La Baule is a seaside resort which is easily reachable by rental car: follow the N165 northwest and turn right at Savenay to the west via the D773. Guérandes is a medieval fortress. In the city there are stretched out salt plains and a museum of the salt production.

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
