Location information for Arcachon

Arcachon is a bustling resort city in Gironde, Aquitaine, France. The town is located about 55 kilometers from Bordeaux, and is conveniently served by the rail system. Arcachon is a popular tourist destination, especially for Bordeaux inhabitants, offering great opportunities for holiday trips. The city is divided into two main towns, namely the summer and the winter town, both reachable by a cheap car hire at Arcachon.

With car hire at Arcachon, visitors could easily reach the popular summer town or Ville d'ete, the part of the city where most of the interesting attractions are. This part of the town holds place the greatest vantage points for exploring the waterfront, with its numerous beaches. Seafood restaurants are also a popular treat in the city.

A car rental at Arcachon would also take visitors to the winter town or the Ville d'hiver, the inland part of the city which boasts of magnificent houses and constructions which are ornate and very stately. This part of the town is a reminder of the olden days when the town was dominated by rich merchants.

In between the two towns is yet another stunning piece of nature known as the Parc Mauresque, a beautiful viewpoint which overlooks the coast and the lower town. The center of the town is also a great base for recreational activities, where several rental facilities for boats, bicycles and the like are posted.

Arcachon is also rested amid the Les Landes forest (largest in western Europe), which holds lines and lines of pine trees and woods. Nature paths abound in this area which is considered to be a regional natural park.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?
