Angouleme is a city that has been occupied since prehistoric times, so it is no surprise that there is a wealth of history and culture to explore. It is known as the 'balcony of the southwest' due to its situation sitting on a high plateau that affords incredible views of the Charente River. For anyone in search of car hire in Angouleme, we have two branches located in the city, one at the railway station and another at the Route de Paris. Hiring a car in Angouleme is a fantastic way to get out and discover the scenic southwest of France.
Hiring a car in Angouleme is ideal for those who are visiting the city for the annual Angouleme International Comics Festival.

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.
