Car Hire in Calais
Hiring a car in Calais
Every year, millions of people pass through Calais to get to their holiday destination elsewhere in France, but it is a place that is well worth a visit.
The port city is just 34 kilometres from England, which has led to Calais embodying everything that comes to mind when you think of France, but with a touch of British panache. You can take in everything it has to offer, such as lovely days out, delicious meals and stunning views, or you can use it as a launching pad to explore the Côte d'Opale in your hire car.
Once you hit the road, it will become very clear why Calais isn’t somewhere you simply pass through.
What you need to know
As Calais sees millions flock to its shores every year, there are a host of hire car companies that operate out of the city, so you just need to decide upon what type of vehicle you need. You can use our booking tool to narrow your search and get the best possible deal. We can show you what cars are available between your chosen dates, and the price you see is the price you pay. There are absolutely no hidden charges or credit card fees. There’s even a free cancellation policy, meaning there’s no penalty to pay if your plans change.
Where to pick up your car
Many people travel to Calais by ferry, as, after all, it is a port city. Hire cars can be picked up from the port, and you can choose from a number of companies such as Europcar and Budget. If you’re catching the Eurostar, you can also collect your vehicle once you arrive in Calais and will still be able to choose from a range of well-known firms. You can also pick up the vehicle at other places across the city, depending on the company you hire with and where is convenient for you.
Arranging your hire car ahead of time using Holiday Autos means that you’ll just need to sign your paperwork and then the keys are yours.
