Organise car hire in Cahors, a dramatic town which is the capital of the Lot department in France. The Valentré Bridge is the iconic symbol of the town of Cahors. Built over 7 years, from 138 onwards, the bridge comes with its own fully formed legends. The recent redevelopment by architect Paul Gout references this, with a cheeky statue of a devil pulling stones from the bridge. Visit our local branch for some help in hiring a car in Cahors, so that you can really make the most of this stunning Lot region.
A devilish idea
The Valentré Bridge's myth is part of its draw. The myth goes that since the bridge was taking so long to construct, the head builder made a deal with the devil, to help him build. To save his soul, he asked the devil to bring him water, but with a sieve - so his soul was saved. However, in revenge, the devil chipped a stone from the corner of the centre each night, causing it to be restarted each day. Hiring a car in Cahors allows you to explore the town to your heart's content, as well as journeying further - rent a car in Cahors and explore the Occitan region, or visit Villeneuve-sur-Lot, accessible in just over an hour's drive.

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.
