Top tips for hiring a car in Brittany

  • Drivers looking for car hire in Brittany will find lots of suitable branches located around the French region. The branches are normally located in popular destinations like Sud-Gare, Saint-Servan, Lorient, Vannes, among others. A driver should also make sure they choose a branch that’s easily accessible to them, to make sure there are no issues at pick-up or return. Providers will usually request that you return your hire vehicle to the same location you picked it up from. Otherwise, collection can sometimes be arranged on request or a different branch is sometimes available for drop-off.
  • A driver must always make sure that they have the appropriate documentation with them in order to hire a vehicle in Brittany. A driver must always show proof that they hold a full driving licence. Although documentation will differ according to different providers, it is usually requested that you have held your driving licence for at least one year. In addition, a driver will almost always have to show their passport. The passport must be valid at the time of your booking as well as throughout the duration of your stay in Brittany.
  • Brittany, as well as the rest of France, are very strict on their drink and drive limit and insist that all drivers must drink responsibly. The limit of consuming alcohol when driving is no more than the maximum of 50 mg of alcohol per 100ml of blood. Drivers will find that this is the equivalent of one small glass of wine every hour. If police stop your vehicle and your level of alcohol is between 50 and 80 mg, then expect to be fined around 135 € (£115.48).
  • Book your rental car in Brittany at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

  • What is driving like in Brittany?

    Driving in Brittany is extremely simple and is easy to navigate for even the newest of drivers. Brittany currently stands as the only region within France that does not have a motorway, meaning there are no motorway tolls that need to be paid. You will find that the roads have an efficient network of dual carriageways with a maximum speed limit of 110 km/h (68 mph). This helps make all driving extremely easy and stress free. Drivers in France drive on the right-hand side of the road, meaning that your wheel will be located on the left-hand side of the car. Make sure to always give way to those on the left when you approach upcoming roundabouts and always proceed with caution.
