Car & Van Hire in Saint-Malo

Enterprise car hire locations in Saint-Malo

Once inhabited by pirates, Saint-Malo is today a top tourist destination in Brittany, with a bustling ferry port. It has a wonderfully atmospheric walled city, known as the 'intra muros'. Walking through the town's cobbled streets is like going back in time. With several districts, the intra muros area is the most popular of all, and has tall granite buildings along with a collection of good hotels and restaurants. Saint-Malo benefits from two Enterprise branches; one at the Saint-Malo train station, and the other at the Aeroport Dinard Saint Malo, which is 20 minutes from Saint-Malo, via the D168. If you're arriving at the ferry terminal, you can walk to the Enterprise branch at the train station in around 28 minutes or take a taxi to pick up your hire car.

Airport Car Hire

Saint-Malo Airoport is known as Dinard airport and is at Pleurtuit, around eight miles or a 20-minute drive from Saint-Malo itself. As a small airport, Ryanair is the main airline flying to and from here. In the terminal building, you'll find good facilities, with information and refreshments available. Since there's no public transport to and from the airport, hiring a car here from Enterprise is an excellent idea for your travels. The airport is close to the main routes D266 and D168, which connect it to different areas in the region.

Attractions In Saint-Malo

Looking around the Saint-Malo Ramparts is a must. You can park in a nearby public car park at the Quai Saint-Louis, then enjoy the bracing sea air and magnificent views. The ramparts are full of history and really spark the imagination. Visit the Saint-Malo Cathedral, a Roman Catholic church dedicated to Saint Vincent of Saragossa. It's one of France's national monuments. If you're interested in wildlife, take a tour of the Great Aquarium Saint-Malo, which opened in 1996 and has entertaining and interesting displays for all the family to enjoy.

Places To Visit Outside Saint-Malo

Just a short drive away from both Saint-Malo and the airport branches of Enterprise, Dinan is a medieval town with timber-framed buildings and narrow cobbled streets. Cancale, around 10 miles east of Saint-Malo, is a picturesque fishing port. It's also Brittany's oyster capital and has many superb seafood restaurants to enjoy while you're there. Situated on the western tip of the Bay of Mont St-Michel, you can see the Mount when the weather is clear. If you drive beyond Dinard and to the Cote d'Emeraude, you'll discover many charming resorts and sandy beaches where you can stroll and relax when the weather is fine.

Parking And Traffic Information In Saint-Malo

In addition to central car parks in Saint-Malo, which make getting to attractions such as the ramparts easy, you can also pay to park on the streets in the town. Simply buy a ticket from the machine and display it in your hire car. There's nothing particularly difficult about driving in and around St. Malo, but expect narrower streets inside the city walls. It's rare to see a traffic jam, but the roads can get busier at rush hour. Therefore, plan additional time for your journey and have a satnav or road map to help you navigate.
