Our Vehicles for Hire in Le Mans
Driving in Le Mans is a convenient way to get around the city, or further afield. Choose your vehicle according to how many people are in your party, and how you plan to spend your time. A mini or economy car, available in petrol or diesel versions, is perfect for city driving and keeps costs low, while our compact, intermediate and standard vehicles are ideal for couples and families.

Attractions in Le Mans
For many visitors, the race circuit is the main attraction of Le Mans. As well as the endurance race, the circuit hosts a number of other events throughout the year, including classic car and cycling races. There is also a museum near the circuit, dedicated to the history of the race and featuring historic vehicles. The city has plenty of other attractions, the most famous being the cathedral with its stained glass windows, and the Roman city walls. The old town dates from the Plantagenet period. If you visit in summer, don't miss the evening light show, in which images projected on the walls and buildings tell the town's story. The botanical garden and the arboretum offer green spaces to stroll. A car puts all the city's sights within easy reach, as well as those slightly further afield, like the zoo and the Papea amusement park.
