KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Nimes

  • The city of Nimes is located roughly midway between Montpellier and Avignon in the southern French region of Occitanie. Its public transport network offers high-speed rail links to surrounding cities and towns, but these are limited to timetables and schedules which may not suit the casual tourist. With car hire in Nimes you retain full freedom to depart at a moment’s notice, and the flexibility to travel off-piste wherever your heart desires. The city of Lyon is a 156-mile drive north along the A7, while the port city of Marseille lies 76 miles south along the A54/A7.
  • Nimes Ales Camargue Cevennes Airport (FNI) is about 8 miles from the city centre, so if you’re seeking a convenient location for car hire in Nimes after your flight, this is it. Some of the providers servicing Nimes Airport are Sixt, Hertz and Budget. You can find the airport’s Car Hire Centre landside from Arrivals, but if you have troubling locating it there’s a nearby information desk where you can seek assistance.
  • There are three major roads that pass through the city of Nimes – the A9, the A54 and the N113 – and they are responsible for most inbound and outbound traffic to destinations beyond the city. From these, secondary roads like the D999 pass through the downtown area and are therefore prone to traffic congestion during the morning and evening rush hours. Downtown is an administrative, cultural and retail hub with heavy pedestrian, cycle and motor activity daily. Boulevards Victor Hugo, Gambetta and Amiral Courbet are streets to avoid during these periods. July and August are the peak summer months, which will aggravate all traffic patterns further.
  • Consider 07:00 to 09:00 the morning rush period and busy evening hours to be from 18:00 to 20:30, when traffic is at its worst. Beyond the downtown area, the Mont Duplan district houses several educational institutions and a busy network of roads, which should be avoided during the morning rush hour and also from 17:00 to 18:00 when school ends. Between 13:00 and 15:00, traffic volumes increase citywide due to busy lunchtime and retail activity.
  • Book your rental car in Nimes at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Nimes are around -31% cheaper than other car types, on average

I never received a contract at the check-out counter despite the attendant saying he sent it twice. The cars were not very clean. And I was charged a fuel charge of 20 euros despite returning the car with a full tank and the confirmation email indicating it was a full tank. I am waiting on a refund from Sixt.
