If you want to organise car hire in Challans, visit our local branch to see how we can help. As part of the beautiful Vendeé département in Western France, Challans is well placed to help you discover the best of the Pays de la Loire region. Hiring a car in Challans puts the Summertime beach haven of Noirmoutier island just 38 kilometres or 5 minutes away, and the capital of the region, Nantes, is only 58.5 kilometres or 53 minutes away, so you can combine exploration of the culture and hubbub of the city with the relaxed, holiday vibes of the beach.
If hiring a car in Challans is your ticket to high culture, drive to Nantes, 50 kilometres from the Atlantic coast, on the Loire River. Nantes is the sixth largest city in France, and is labelled an art and history city. Rent a car in Challans and get exploring as soon as possible. The castle of the Dukes of Brittany is a prime Nantes attraction, the last of the castles occupying the Loire's banks as it progresses through the country. Recently restored the castle is certainly magnificent, and entry is free. As the area is known for its crepes, the French pancake which is as often savoury as sweet, sit down in one of Nantes' 50 restaurants which serve crepes and enjoy.

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.
