Airvault is in the much-loved Deux Sevres region of Poitou-Charentes in western France which features on the Santiago de Compostella pilgrimage route. it's notable in many circles as being the potential origin of Voltaire's pseudonym, but more importantly for visitors to the area, it's a magical town surrounded by like-minded rustic villages such as Montreuil Bellay, Saumur, Moncontour and Thouars.
Deux Sevres is a treasure trove of archetypal rustic French towns and anyone who takes up car hire in Airvault will delight in touring the local countryside. Hiring a car in Airvault is available from the town itself as well as arrival destinations such as Nantes Airport.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
