Car & Van Hire in Amiens

Enterprise car hire locations in Amiens

The city of Amiens is situated on the Somme river, in northern France. It is a charming, characterful place, with buildings dating from the Middle Ages to the modern day. The Gothic cathedral is probably the most famous sight in Amiens, but there is much more to see, with museums, markets and monuments among the attractions. The city's location, at a convenient distance from the Channel ports, as well as Paris to the south and the Belgian border to the east, makes it a popular stopping-off point on holidays abroad, as well as a holiday destination in its own right. Enterprise Rent-A-Car in Amiens is located close to the city centre, near the cathedral and other attractions, and within walking distance of the main railway station.

Our Vehicles for Hire in Amiens

Enterprise offers a range of petrol and diesel cars and vans, for every customer and every journey. For couples planning a city break, a mini such as Renault's Twingo will help you whizz around the streets. Our economy range of three-door, five-door and diesel cars lets you travel in comfort while saving money. For longer journeys, and travelling with children, a compact, intermediate or standard manual car offers more space for luggage, as well as extra legroom. If you're travelling with older children or in a group of adults, make sure everyone has enough room by hiring a monospace five-passenger or crossover SUV. These vehicles are also great for longer journeys and touring holidays. A small or intermediate commercial van is ideal for carrying luggage for a group of travellers, or if you're planning to make and transport a bulky purchase.
