Located on the Sévre-Niortaise River, car hire in Niort allows access to both the coast at La Rochelle and the city at Poitiers with ease and speed. Pop in to our local branch and we can help you organise it. Hiring a car in Niort allows you to access the city, as well as further afield. Whilst in Niort, visit the Keep, which is a relic of a 12th century fortress built by Henry II Plantagenet, and Richard the Lionheart. It is now a museum and space with exhibitions about local archaeology, and the popular art and traditions of the area.
Plan hiring a car in Niort to enable access to the wider Vendée region. When in the pedestrian centre of Niort, meander the streets, taking in the old facades which are dotted around, including the Governor's House and the Estissac Mansion. At the centre of this historical, old quarter is the Renaissance style town hall, the Pilori, built upon the site of a medieval pillory. It has now been converted into a contemporary art exhibition space. Rent a car in Niort and La Rochelle is only a 51 minute drive away, a city on the Bay of Biscay, from which you can access the charming Ile-de-Ré.

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.
