Brest Airport serves the West Brittany region and Brittany as a whole. Brest is right on the north-west tip of France, looking out towards the Atlantic. It's obvious that the city should be steeped in maritime history. Hugely popular museums such as Oceanopolis, tell the tale of marine science and oceanography, and it's quite fitting that one of Europe's most popular marine life museums should be in Brest.
Brittany has a beautifully rugged coastline, and car hire at Brest Airport is particularly popular for those wishing to explore the north-west peninsula. Hiring a car is available at the airport or in the city itself.
On entering the city of Brest, you'll see that the Oceanopolis Museum is immensely popular with both French and foreign tourists. Brest Castle is well worth a trip for the views and wide panoramas on offer from the ramparts; here you'll also find the National Navy Museum integrated into the castle - the city's maritime past is inescapable and intriguingly presented. The Tower of Motte Tanguy is another attraction that stands out above the city as a maritime outpost, allowing views over different aspects of Brest.
If you're hiring a car at Le Havre Airport, the short drive to Plougonvelin is certainly worth the trip. Here you'll find the Pointe Saint Mathieu which consists of an Abbey and a lighthouse. The history of the attraction is absorbing and it's just 21km from Brest on the D789.
Many tourists landing in Brest might consider heading up to Perros-Guirec which is in Northwest Brittany. Here you'll find the famous pink granite cliffs. Rent a car at Brest Airport and discover the rustic beauty of Brittany and its huge coastline. Cosy towns line the northern coast and major cities like Rennes sit further south for those using Brest as a starting point for a road trip through France.
With a wide range of travellers passing through our locations every day, we've got a wide range of vehicles on offer to suit your needs - from smart executive saloons to compact family hatchbacks. ***

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.
