9.2 Excellent11 Jul 2017
Pros: staff was excellent, very very helpful and kind. rate was reasonable.Cons: extra charge for picking up at train station (I thought I'd reserved a car from station) car had some kind of leak. couldn't use it first day
8.0 Excellent14 Feb 2017
Pros: the car was new. it ran great. very gas efficient. friendly staff, especially when I ran late returning the car, due to weather delays.Cons: I bought the additional insurance directly from the site and when I got to the rental car company they insisted I buy THEIR insurance. not only did I pay 40% for the insurance, the car wasn't even legally insured there. secondly, the rental car company was severely overbooked. when I got there, there was only one car left which they gave me. the car I rented online was supposed to be big enough for "two luggages" and they one I got barely fit one. I was lucky enought to leave with a car, as the person who came in behind me left very angry without one.

2.0 Mediocre2 May 2017
Complete failureCons: I thought all was well when I got on an earlier flight, but Dollar refused to change the time on my car reservation and I could not get the car when I arrived. They insisted I'd have to pay three times the price. After 45 minutes of assistants calling the headquarters and all sorts of other useless jazz, I gave up and rented from someone else.
6.4 Good18 Aug 2016
Pros: Wonderful employees , very friendly staff!Cons: The car was not ready at the time of the supposed pick-up, had to be brought over from other location (airport) 2 hours later and car was filthy and not cleaned.

Top tips for hiring a car in Montpellier

  • A hire car is the best, most comfortable way to explore not only Montpellier, but also the surrounding area of the Mediterranean coast in the south of France. A car will let you drive along the coast and access the more secluded beaches that public transportation can’t reach. Hop into the car and visit some of the city’s top attractions, such as the Saint-Pierre Cathedral, or head to Saint Jean de Cuculles, a 30-minute drive away, to try some of the region’s best wine.
  • Most of the big car hire agencies, including Avis, Europcar, and Enterprise, can be found at Montpellier–Méditerranée Airport (MPL), which is about 15 minutes away from both the city center and some of the beaches on the Mediterranean coast. Car hire desks are located outside the main terminal building, across from the Arrivals Hall and Business Center. Vehicles should be returned to the car hire parking lot – follow the P6/P8/Car hire signs.
  • Navigating Marseille isn’t hard, but be extra careful when maneuvering in some of the narrow streets in the city center. Rue de La Loge is a pedestrian-only street. Pedestrians always have the right of way on crosswalks, so you must stop and wait for them. If you wish to hit the coast, you might want to do so on the weekends, as big trucks are not allowed on the roads. Cyclists are common along coastal roads.
  • While traffic in Montpellier is manageable, the city does get more crowded during morning rush hour between 6:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m., and then again between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m., so avoid driving within those time frames if possible. Downtown always experiences some congestion and traffic jams are common on the A9 – particularly during summer and on weekends, as more tourists take to the road.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Montpellier for $132 or less
  • Book your rental car in Montpellier at least 4 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price

  • For passengers who don't require much space, a small, compact car is ideal for driving through the narrow streets of Marseille. But if you're planning on a road trip along the coast, a convertible allows you to feel the Mediterranean breeze, especially in the early summer. If you’re traveling with family or friends, a mid-size sedan is a good fit.

  • The speed limit in urban areas is typically 50 km/h (31 mph), but it may be lower in certain residential areas, in which case speed limit signs will be posted. The speed limit in two to three-lane roads is 90 km/h (55 mph), and 110 km/h (68 mph) on four-lane routes. Motorways have a speed limit of 130 km/h (80 mph). The limits decrease in wet weather.

You can find lower prices of around €4.35 ($4.92) per gallon, and the higher prices are usually €5.68 ($6.46) per gallon. There is a Dyneff petrol station within the Montpellier Airport grounds in case you need to fill up the tank before returning your car.

  • The historic center of Montpellier doesn’t allow cars, so you will need to drop the car in the surrounding zones. Street parking rates rise as you park nearer the center. In the “first zone” the rate is €2 per hour. “Second zone” charges about €1.30 per hour, and “third zone” costs €0.80 per hour. You can park for a maximum of 2, 5, and 9 hours, respectively. There are also many parking lots that charge €1.80 - €2.10 per hour.
