Found in the Aveyron department of Southern France is the commune of Rodez, a historic town that's embracing the past and the present. This 5th century old settlement has continued to grow over the years, and has steadily become a popular holiday destination for various travellers across the globe; with its exceptional landmarks, and numerous attractions, it's a lively hub of energy. If you're in the area for a few days, you can hire a car from Rodez to ensure you're able to get around town with ease - our local branch is eight minutes outside of the town centre, using the D994, and is in prime position to help with all your transport needs.
During your visit, renting a car in Rodez is a great way to ensure you can engage with popular tourist favourites, such as the La Vidalerie Jewellery Making Workshops - found over an hour's drive away along the D988. Although a slight detour from the town, it's a worthwhile place to call in at even if you've never considered jewellery crafting before; fun, insightful, and accessible to even beginners, this location is a fine way to interact with the local culture.

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.
