Car and Van rental in Bordeaux
From eager holidaymakers looking forward to a break in Bordeaux, to business travellers keen to keep to a tight itinerary, Enterprise Rent-a-Car is on hand to make every trip run as smoothly as possible. This historic port city sits on the banks of the Garonne River and serves as the regional capital of the Gironde department. This stunning city has become an increasingly popular destination for tourists in recent years, attracting the attention of awarding bodies and earning itself the UNESCO World Heritage status for its splendid architecture. It's also a city rich in history and culture, with more than 360 individual monuments and buildings that date as far back as the Roman era. There's also an abundance of shopping destinations, theatres, cinemas and museums. It's easy for visitors to experience it all, with Enterprise branches scattered in or around the city in locations such as Bordeaux Airport, Bordeaux Train Station and Bordeaux Ville, not to mention nearby Merignac Ville.

Cheap Car and Van Hire in Bordeaux
Securing cheap airline travel and hotel accommodation makes many tourists think they're spending money to burn on their holidays, but in truth, the lack of a vehicle can severely limit your options. Public transport within the city centre of Bordeaux is very dependable, but if you're looking to venture further afield and explore the surrounding regions of the southern French coast or renowned Bordeaux vineyards, you'll need a reliable car rental that can get you from A to B and back again. For visitors with a clear idea of dates and times of travel booking a vehicle rental ahead of time is an easy way to nab a serious discount. What's more, when customers pay upfront, their prepaid booking is usually discounted for even more savings.
Airport Car Hire
For most people, climbing aboard an airport shuttle bus for a transfer is one of the most dreaded parts of any trip, while forking out for the apparent luxury of a taxi transfer can be one of the most expensive. When travellers opt to pick up an Enterprise rental vehicle from Bordeaux Airport, they not only benefit from great rates on flexible travel, they're able to leave the airport more or less immediately and head off on the next leg of their journey. For those who need to travel a fair distance further by road, this expediency and efficiency can be a godsend.
Attractions in Bordeaux
Visitors to Bordeaux don't need to venture far to uncover historic landmarks and monuments. In 2007, the entire city centre and great swatches of the surrounding regions were designated a World Heritage Site. It's a dream for fans of architecture, with neoclassical buildings and more contemporary developments blending seamlessly for a spectacular skyline. However, those who want to get up close and personal with it all have a lot of ground to cover, so it makes sense to put an Enterprise rental vehicle to good use to zip between every iconic landmark on must-see lists.
Places to Visit Outside Bordeaux
For those visiting Bordeaux for longer, or for those who simply wish to make a break from the city, there's plenty to see and do in the surrounding areas. With an Enterprise rental car, visitors to this historic French city can explore the surrounding Bordeaux countryside that's home to rolling pastures, vast vineyards and quaint farmhouses aplenty. For a complete change of pace, a day trip to one of the several seaside towns within driving distance is a good idea that will impress kids and grown-ups alike. Arcachon is the perfect destination, with sandy beaches, inspiring waterside architecture and vast sand dunes, including the Dune du Pilat, the largest of its kind in Europe.
Parking and Traffic Information in Bordeaux
For first-time road users in Bordeaux, driving and parking takes a little getting used to. Much of the inner city has become pedestrianised in recent years, along with a spur in development of the public transport system. If you are driving in the interior of the city, avoid the pedestrian zone entirely and try to avoid the one-way lanes and narrow roads of the San Pierre district to avoid gridlock, particularly in peak rush hours. It's also worth noting that the first Sunday of every month is a car-free day in Bordeaux city centre, although road closures are only in effect between the hours of 10.00 and 18.00. Try to avoid driving immediately before and after these limits to avoid a rush in traffic as motorists return to the roads.
