Pros: Friendly staff, took me to terminal due to drop off detail
3.2 Mediocre
30 Mar 2019
Cons: I’ve requested a car with snow tires. Over the phone the rep had reserved a Nissan SUV with snow tires Thais was slightly above the originally reserved priced. However, at the counter, they only had an expensive Alfa Rome Thad has snow tires and added 20 euros per day to the quoted price.

Top tips for renting a car in Lyon

  • If you’re planning a trip to Lyon, then make sure to rent a car to explore this wonderful French region. Sightseeing is made easy with a car because it gives you the complete freedom to explore, instead of depending on public transport. As a UNESCO Heritage Site, there is so much to see on your Lyon vacation, like the vineyards of the Rhone and Saone valleys or the mesmerizing caves of Grottes de Cerdon.
  • When you fly into Lyon–Saint-Exupéry Airport, you will find the car hire desks located within the airport at each one of the three Terminals, as well as a free shuttle that runs between the arrivals terminal and off-site car hire centers. If you arrive into Terminal 2, you will find the shuttle outside of Level 0 next to Terminal 1, or Terminal 3 outside on Level 0.
  • As a new driver in Lyon, you will be driving on the right-hand side, just like in the US. You will find many roundabouts in Lyon and will be expected to yield to traffic already in the roundabout. It’s also good to know that green directional signs point to a non-highway main route -- or "free roads" -- whereas the blue signs indicate a highway route and are often marked "peage," meaning you will have to pay for toll roads.
  • As a relatively busy city, Lyon’s roads do experience busy periods. Rush hour starts at 8:00 am and lasts until 10:00 in the morning, and starts up again at 4:00 pm until 6:00 pm. It’s also wise to avoid any tunnels at rush hour. During the summer, the A6 and A7 highway, which passes through the city center and is the main route to Paris, becomes extremely congested.
