Location information for Caen

Caen is a vibrant city in the northwestern end of France. It is the capital town of Basse Normandie, about 15 kilometers away the English Channel. Known for its rich architectural heritage, erected during the rule of William the Conqueror, the town has gone through an impressive rise from the heavy destruction brought about by the 1944 Battle of Normandy. Today, the city is a memorial to that point of history, surrounded by many great possibilities for exploring the past. Visitors could take a cheap car hire at Caen for easy navigation around the city.

With car hire at Caen, visitors could easily reach the city's most notable landmarks, including the Chateau de Caen, the city's prime castle built by the prominent Willam the Conqueror. It is among the largest medieval fortresses in Western Europe, which houses the Museum of Fine Arts as well as the Museum of Normandy, both of which exhibits pertaining to the artistic and historical heritage of the city.

A car rental at Caen would also take visitors to the famous religious landmarks in the city, one of which is the Eglise St Etienne, an abbey devoted to St Stephen. To the south of the building is Hotel de Ville, or the town hall. Also of note is the Eglise de la Ste. Trinite, another prominent abbey devoted to the Holy Trinity.

The Church of Saint Pierre is also worth visiting, posted right at the center of the city. As with the other prominent buildings in the city, the church has been through some rebuilding to preserve its classic beauty. The church is located at Place Saint Pierre.

For a taste of nature, visitors could take time at the Jardin Botanique de Caen, a beautiful arboretum and botanical garden, with plant life and trees dating back from the year 1689.

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?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
