Capital of the Drôme department of France, and located in the south-east of the country, is the commune of Valence. The town is just over an hour's drive away from Lyon, and has great transportation links, sitting on the TGV line, with connections to Paris and Marseille.
Valence has a rich history and was once a Roman colony. Be sure to visit the Cathedral of St. Apollinaris, which was rebuilt in the 11th century in a Romanesque architectural style.
By hiring a car from Valence, you can take in all that the town has to offer, and go on day trips to explore the surrounding in no time at all.
For food lovers, the first stop with their hire car should definitely be the Maison Pic, a three Michelin starred restaurant located in Valence. It has been a family run place for decades, and still serves world class food today. Visitors should definitely book in advance to secure a table.
The surrounding area of Drôme has much to offer. Take a trip out to Montélimar, a town renowned for its nougat. There are many nougat factories and shops where you can learn how the sweet treat is made and take some gifts back for friends and family. The area is also known for its lavender and is surrounded by scented purple fields.
With a wide range of travellers passing through our locations every day, we've got a wide range of vehicles on offer to suit your needs - from smart executive saloons to compact family hatchbacks. ***

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.
