Welcome to the Enterprise Epinal car rental page. Choose from a wide selection of cars ranging from smaller economy cars to larger SUVs and people carriers
Over 81 million visitors arrive annually at the airports and ports of France, to spend a week or longer enjoying the diverse coastline, countryside, and culture of this 640 sq km country.
The French capital, Paris, and France’s Mediterranean coast, are a big draw for many. Others prefer to travel further afield, hire a car, and base themselves away from the tourist magnets. One such popular area is the city of Epinal, in north-eastern France, and situated in the region of Lorraine. With the River Moselle flowing through this city surrounded by forests, it is a picturesque place to base oneself for touring the northern areas of the country.
Accommodation in Epinal is plentiful and varied. From 5 star hotels to quaint boarding houses in the back streets, to self-catering accommodation and campsites, Epinal has something for all tastes and pockets.
Many visitors choose to begin their touring holiday as soon as they leave the airport or dockyard. For those, Enterprise has booths in both main Paris airports and the channel ferry ports. If your choice is to travel by rail to Epinal you have a number of options, but the most direct route takes around two hours thirty minutes from Paris. Enterprise is situated at 15 Rue de Nancy, 88, Epinal.
No matter how you plan to enjoy your time in the area, at Enterprise, we have the vehicle to suit your needs. If you plan to day trip with visits to the towns and sights surrounding Epinal, perhaps one of our selection of small city cars would suit. Compact, economical and easy to park, they are ideal for town and city driving.
For those travelling farther afield on the faster ‘A’ and toll roads, Enterprise had a great range of large saloons which may be a more attractive option. We can also supply seven seat saloons and people carriers for larger parties, as well as SUV’s and small, medium and large commercial vehicles.
A city founded in the 10th century. Epinal still has plenty of medieval architecture dating from the 11th, 13th, and 15th centuries for the architectural history buffs, much of it around the historical Vosges Square and the St Maurice Basilica. The train stations and main shopping areas are situated on one side of the River Moselle, which meanders through the city, with the old town centre on the other side.
Although somewhat limited in tourist attractions within the city, using one of Enterprise’s small city cars allows you to enjoy the sights, sounds and culture of Epinal before venturing farther afield into the French countryside.
Having collected your car from Enterprise in Epinal, the beautiful area of Lorraine awaits you. Driving through this flat area of the French countryside you would be hard pushed to believe that back in the 196s, Lorraine was the third largest economical area in France relying heavily on iron and steel production, and coal mining.
Now more famous for its macaroons and madeleines, quiche and Mirabelle plum jam, the roads through the beautiful rural Regional Park of Lorraine can guide you to some of the most historic cities in northern France. Visit towns and cities such as Nancy, Metz, Bar-le-Tuc, Lunéville, Toul, and Verdun in your Enterprise car rental from Epinal, and get absorbed in the French culture and lifestyle.
Although we have desks in the main Paris airports, as well as the English Channel ferry terminals, the airport at Karlsruhe Baden-Baden, in Germany, is the closest to our Nancy office.
Driving in Epinal is similar to other areas of Europe, but France has one notable exceptions: in most areas of France, including Epinal, the speed limit is often reduced during wet weather. For instance, a normal speed limit of 5 km will reduce to 3 km.
Take care if you choose to park on the streets. Stay away from yellow hatched spaces as they are reserved for utility and delivery vehicles up to the time stated on the sign. Roadside parking is usually metered or pay and display, but Epinal has a good selection of both free and pay car parks easily found whichever part of the city you are in. Many of the hotels also have parking facilities for clients private and hire vehicles.
