KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Royan

  • Exploring architecture and beaches in Royan has never been better when using a hire car. Though the city has many bus connections, the tight schedules and slow journeys can limit your exploration time and places. With a hire car, you can visit Centre International de la Mer - La Corderie Royale, about 41 km (25 miles) away, Arch of Germanicus, approximately 43 km (27 miles) away, and Basilique Saint Eutrope de Saites, around 45 km (28 miles) from Royan.
  • If you land at Bordeaux-Merignac Airport (BOD), you’ll find several Royan car hire companies, including Budget, Hertz, Europcar, and Avis, at the airport. Most car hire agencies are located at the front of the airport near Terminal A. Getting to the car hire offices is easy because the airport offers free shuttle services. The most convenient way to pick up a hire car is to book in advance.
  • When driving a hire car in Royan, beware of pedestrians crossing the streets. Though jaywalking is prohibited, some pedestrians ignore the rule because it isn't punishable. Sometimes, the streets can get busy, especially due to the influx of tourists or people shopping in the marketplace. Therefore, be careful and drive slowly to ensure the safety of pedestrians. However, most streets are in good condition and well-marked, making driving easy.
  • Royan receives heavy snow during winter. Therefore, using car hire in Royan during the snowy weather can be challenging. The roads are slippery, and a car can lose balance. If you have to drive during winter, choose a hire car with robust winter tyres to prevent skidding. It's also advisable to drive slowly, especially when making a turn, maintain distance between cars, keep the headlights on to improve visibility, and use quality driving skills throughout your journey.
  • Book your rental car in Royan at least 2 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Royan are around 12% cheaper than other car types, on average

Cons:

Terrible drop off process - so confusing and took so much extra time. I am also in the process of fighting with Avis because of being charged way over what I originally paid for.
