KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Clermont-Ferrand

  • Clermont-Ferrand is surrounded by stunning landscapes and natural beauty, including the Chaîne des Puys volcanic range and the Auvergne region. Driving a car hire in Clermont-Ferrand allows you to easily explore these areas at your own pace, without being restricted by public transportation schedules. With a Clermont-Ferrand car hire, you can easily visit nearby cities and towns, such as Vichy, Montluçon, or Le Puy-en-Velay, making the most of your trip to the region.
  • Clermont-Ferrand is served by the Clermont-Ferrand Auvergne Airport (CFE), which is the main airport in the region. It is located approximately 6 km east of the city centre. Clermont-Ferrand Auvergne Airport (CFE) offers domestic and international flights, connecting the city to various destinations within France and other countries. Major car rental companies, including Sixt and Enterprise, have their offices just outside the Arrivals Hall.
  • When driving your car hire in Clermont-Ferrand, it is important to know that the town enforces environmental regulations on vehicle traffic, known as LTZ or ZTL in some countries, and ZFE in French. The LTZ permits authorised vehicles' access only during designated hours, therefore, you may not have access to all the streets of the town. It is advisable to examine the sticker on your car to verify if it is permitted to drive in this restricted zone. Plus, it is important to understand that having a reservation does not grant authorisation for entry into the ZFE zone in Clermont-Ferrand.
  • In Clermont-Ferrand, traffic congestion is most prevalent during rush hours, typically in the morning from around 07:00 to 09:00 and in the evening from 17:00 to 19:00. The city centre, particularly near major intersections, roundabouts, and commercial areas, experiences higher traffic volumes during these peak hours. Additionally, areas around the university and major event venues may also be prone to congestion, especially during specific events or academic semesters.
  • Book your rental car in Clermont-Ferrand at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

These cars are generally more fuel-efficient and manoeuvrable in urban areas.

As for motorways (autoroutes) across France, the maximum speed limit is 130 km/h in normal circumstances. In France, speed limits are rigorously enforced and monitored using mobile speed vans, police patrols, and fixed speed cameras. Violating the speed limit results in fines, and the severity of the fine increases with higher speeds exceeding the limit.

  • Where are the best places to park my car hire in Clermont-Ferrand?

    During your stay in Clermont-Ferrand, you can take advantage of the public parking, which costs around €0.50 (roughly ₹45.25) for 24 hours from 09:00 to 19:00. You will find that on Sundays and public holidays, the parking is free, and after 19:00 you are able to pay for parking for the next day. For example, the Zenpark La Glacière - Trémonteix car park is located close to the town centre, and it is a parking garage, in case you prefer the extra security of covered parking.

this was the second time this summer I rented a car from AVIS. The first time they did not have the car I requested and had go to a different location in the town. the second time they brought a car out and again not the one I had requested, and the car was so filthy outside and when I opened the car door the inside has not been vacuumed and paper and plastic bottles were still in there. they the offered me another car that was again dirty on the outside. Not happy with Avis.

Cons:

It took three hours to pick up the car. They gave us the wrong car (giant sprinter van when we booked an suv). The car had engine problems. We had to pay 300 to drop the car at a different location. We had to pay 50 for a second driver even though we did not need one. Done with hertz.
