Welcome to the Enterprise Créteil car rental page. Choose from a wide selection of cars ranging from smaller economy cars to larger SUVs and people carriers
Located in the south-east of the French capital, Créteil is an urban commune which has a busy commercial district. Situated about seven miles from the centre of Paris, it is popular among commuters who travel back and forth each day. Créteil is a typically Parisian suburb with much of its architecture dating back to the eighteenth century. It is served by good road connections, with the A86 and N6 both passing through its western side.
There are plenty of cars to choose from. Being a heavily urbanised area, many economical cars are popular. Popular cars include mini-class vehicles, such as a Renault Twingo, but also economy 3-door cars, such as an Opel Corsa. For those needing a bit more room, car rental Créteil also covers economy diesels, like Renault Clios, for example, or compact manuals, such as a Citroën C4. Larger cars - for example, estates, SUVs and 7-seaters, like a Peugeot 87 - are all available. These are ideal for families and bigger parties who are on a touring holiday.
The Lac de Créteil is the commune's principal tourist attraction, accessible via Rue Jean Gabin, off the D86. Formed from a former quarry, it is a centre of fishing, pleasure boating and sailboarding. There is also a widely-used shopping mall on the western side of the lake, just off the D1 and easy to reach by car. Behind it is Créteil's cultural and arts centre which hosts theatrical, music and dance performances. In common with other Parisian residential areas, Créteil has a number of good restaurants. Particularly noteworthy are the number of Asian restaurants which are situated off Rue de General Leclerc in the north-east of the commune.
Given Créteil's close proximity to the centre of Paris, there are too many things to see and do to list in their entirety. In terms of car rental, Créteil is ideally situated for people who want to visit central Paris during the day, for sights such as the Louvre Museum and the Arc de Triomphe, but who would like to return to a cosier neighbourhood during the evening. The main entrance to the famous catacombs of Paris is a twenty-minute drive away and only another ten minutes would mean being able to see the Eiffel Tower. About eight miles to the east of Créteil is the Forêt Domaniale de Notre-Dame, an urban forest much loved by Parisian families and tourists alike. It hosts regular gastronomic festivals and offers activities for people of all ages.
The closest airport to Créteil is Orly, where Enterprise has a convenient facility situated by the west terminal. A free monorail service connects the airport's two terminals so it is easy to access no matter which terminal your aeroplane lands at. Our services are available seven days a week. With a journey time of about a half an hour behind the wheel, it is possible to reach the Enterprise centre at Charles de Gaulle Airport from Créteil, too. Just head north on the A86 skirting the busiest traffic to the east of the city centre.
The car rental Créteil options on offer are diverse because Enterprise has many facilities in Paris, several located at the city's railway stations as well as its air hubs. However, navigation in the city is not always easy for newcomers. Parisian traffic tends to be a little more urgent than in other parts of France, so it is a good idea to have your route planned or to hire a satellite navigation system along with your car, if you are unsure of how best to get in and around Créteil. On-street parking is possible in the commune, but some residential streets have marked bays that are reserved for residents only. Public parking is available at the metro station, the shopping mall and on Rue Jean Gabin, close to the lake.
