Nantes Car Rental Deals

If you are looking to rent a car in Nantes, Sixt car rental has a range of vehicles to choose from; visitors to Nantes can rent a car from Sixt from one of our locations either at Nantes Airport, or from Nantes TGV Train Station, on Rue Cornulier. From either location, you can rent from a range of city cars, family cars, sports cars, convertibles as well as 4x4 vehicles and SUVs. It is easy to rent a car from Sixt and can be arranged online or on location. If you do arrange your car rental online, Sixt will ensure that your vehicle will be ready for you on your arrival.


Renting a car in Nantes, France

Nantes itself is host to a variety of attractions, such as the Castle of the Dukes of Brittany, which houses the Nantes History Museum, the Cathedrale de Saint-Pierre et Saint-Paul, which is a spectacular example of Gothic architecture, and breath-taking views in gardens such as Jardin des Plantes, Parc de la Beaujoire and Jardin Japonais. The advantages of a car rental from Sixt, however, will allow you to explore places further afield, like areas of natural beauty such as Brière Regional Natural Park to the West and Réserve Naturelle de Grand-Lieu to the South. For family excursions there is also Zoo La Boissiere du Dore to the East. Of course, you can also simply venture out and enjoy the French countryside around Nantes. Also, note that driving in Nantes, and France in general is like in the US, but be mindful that speed limits are measured in kilometers (km) rather than miles (m).

Tesla Model 3 A.

We usually drive to our holiday home in the Vendée from the UK, but this time we'd flown into Nantes, so we needed to hire a car.


We chose Sixt because they rent out EVs, and we opted for the Fiat 500 EV.


The airport is relatively compact, so it was easy to get to Sixt on foot. In fact the cars were located just behind the office, so overall it was a smooth experience to get to the car.


We were met by a friendly, & very attractive lady, who spoke perfect English. She offered us the additional insurance, but it wasn't a pressured sales pitch. We have annual car hire insurance by Allianz, so we didn't need it.


The car was a pleasure to drive, and suited our needs for the week. It came with a charger, and a type 2 lead.


Drop off was straightforward, with another friendly member of staff, who checked over the car, & took the key.


I've rented cars around the world, over many decades, and at times it can be the worst part of a holiday, dealing with pushy sales people, trying to upsell larger cars, or insurance... Sixt wasn't like the at all, and we'd certainly use them again.


They are probably the only company I know of, that rents out EVs, and all credit to them for offering customers the electric option. We drive a Tesla at home, so it was nice to be driving in an emissions free car on holiday.


We appreciate that there are many car hire options at Nantes, but if we choose to fly again, Sixt will be our go to company.


Thanks for reading :-)

I was first disappointed with some fees and charges, but Sixt was flexible and considerate enough to understand my point of view. I am thankful with Sixt Management for having heard "the voice of the customer"....
