Nantes is the sixth largest city in France and capital of the Pays de la Loire region. Organise your car hire in Nantes with us - just visit one of our local branches, at the airport, railway or St Herblain. Hiring a car in Nantes allows access to this historical city of arts and culture, but also enables wider access to the beautiful Vendée region. As the final chateau on the Loire river before it makes its way to the sea, the Chateau des Ducs de Bretaigne is worth a visit. Serving as the residence of the dukes of Brittany between the 13th and 16th centuries, the castle today houses Nantes' history museum.
In the quirky city of Nantes, nothing strange should come as too big a surprise. Hiring a car in Nantes can be the best way to take it all in. Les Machines de l'Ile-de-Nantes has a go at being the quirkiest sight out there. A real must-see is the mechanical elephant. With 50 people aboard, this feat of engineering lumbers through the streets most convincingly, and looking out whilst riding is the equivalent of being on the fourth floor of a (moving) house. Don't get too close as a pedestrian - you might get sprayed by its trunk. Rent a car in Nantes and reach the mouth of the Loire and the coast at Saint Nazaire in under an hour.

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.
