Hertz at Bordeaux Airport

Bordeaux Airport is the gateway to south-west France, home to sprawling vineyards, idyllic villages and the magnificent city of Bordeaux. Car rental at Bordeaux Airport means you can explore the region as a whole, whether you’re staying in the heart of the city or relaxing in a rural chateau.

Our pick-up desk is located in the airport terminal, so you’ll have no trouble finding us. It doesn’t matter if you’re heading straight to Bordeaux or planning a rustic road trip, we have the perfect car for you in our collection. Simply select your ideal vehicle online before you fly, and we’ll have it waiting for you as soon as you arrive.

With no hidden extras to pay, we aim to get you on the road without any hassle. Plus, our best price guarantee means that if you find a cheaper Hertz price we’ll refund the difference.

Driving in and around the Bordeaux region

The airport is located just six miles outside of Bordeaux, in the nearby town of Mérignac. Simply follow the D106 highway to reach the city center in half an hour. It’s relatively straightforward to navigate the roads in south-west France – just stick to the right-hand side, as at home, and accustom yourself to the km/h speed signs.

Once you’re in the city, you’ll find good value parking lots within walking distance of all the major sights. The top speed limit on highways is 80mph (130 km/h) and 31mph (50 km/h) in built-up areas. Limits drop during wet weather.

The Garonne river meanders through Bordeaux, continuing north west towards the coast and eventually spilling out into the Bay of Biscay. Once a thriving port – and now UNESCO’s ‘City of Art and History’ - famous landmarks decorate the river in the center, including the Pont de Pierre bridge and Place de la Bourse. Out in the country, you’ll find its banks are lined with sprawling vineyards and serene chateau hotels.

To the west of the airport, the sandy coastline is less than an hour’s drive away, including the Plage Centrale and the Grand Crohot beach. Further inland, you’ll stumble upon sleepy sun-soaked villages. From the airport, head east on the N89 towards St-Émilion, and in just 40 minutes you can be admiring the Romanesque church and the winding streets of this historic area.

Use Bordeaux Airport as your base for a romantic road-trip around France. Modern, tolled highways quickly connect you to cities across the country, including the A62 to Toulouse. Fondly known as ‘La Ville Rose’ – which translates as ‘The Pink City’ – there’s always love in the air here.

For a snowcapped adventure, pack up your skis and cross the country to Lyon and the Alps on the A89. Alternatively, the seaside resort of Biarritz on the Basque coast is a pleasant drive along the scenic A63, passing through the beautiful Landes des Gascognes National Park.

A quick guide to Bordeaux and beyond

A historic port city built on the banks of the Garonne, Bordeaux is the perfect base for exploring the surrounding area of south-west France. Discover a land of rolling vineyards and enchanting chateaus in this sunny, pretty region.

Discover a re-invented city

Bordeaux has come a long way since its industrial days. The buildings have been scrubbed and shined, revealing glowing golden stone beneath years of grime. Now this revived city claims the largest urban area of UNESCO protection, with winding streets and old merchant buildings now housing up-market restaurants and boutique shops.

Take your camera or phone and snap a shot of the Place de la Bourse -  the most photographed scene in the city. The palatial 17th century buildings look out over the river, with the waters creating a natural mirror.

Celebrated for its long history of winemaking, one of Bordeaux’s top attractions is La Cité du Vin. You can’t miss this sleek, glass building – styled in the shape of a decanter - on the banks of the Garonne. Inside, the museum tells the whole story of wine from prehistoric times to the present day. On the 8th floor, floor-to-ceiling windows offer an incredible view over the river.

Escape to the country

Outside the city, there’s a vast number of chateaus nestled in the folds of rolling, green hills. Indulge in the provincial French experience with a stay in one of these traditional buildings. Just a short drive from the center of Bordeaux, you’ll find Château Grattequina – a 19th century mansion on the banks of the Garonne river.

For the ultimate luxury, splash out on a trip to the Chateau Lamothe du Prince Noir. Just 25 minutes’ drive from both Bordeaux and St-Émilion, this 14th century castle has three fairytale towers and lavish stately bedrooms overlooking idyllic countryside scenes. Find peace and quiet as you breakfast on the terrace, watching ducks and swans paddle in the spring-fed moat.

Discover provincial France

From Bordeaux Airport, a trip to the medieval village of St-Émilion is a must – whether you plan a day trip or stay overnight. An UNESCO World Heritage Site, explore the history of this picturesque village both above and below ground. A chasm of arched limestone lies under the church in the market square, begging to be explored. Out in the sunshine, wander the narrow, cobbled streets lined with shops and restaurants and admire the monolithic church, carved out of one piece of rock in the hillside.

Head to the Atlantic coast and the town of Arcachon to taste fresh seafood, put your toes in the sand and admire Belle Époque architecture. This lively seaside resort attracts kite-surfers to hit the waves, and in the summer the tables and chairs spill from beach-side cafés. Enjoy fresh seafood from one of the traditional oyster ports in the bay - colorful huts dot the coastline, and traditional oyster farmers are happy to share their catch with you.

Whether you’re staying in a medieval village, exploring the coast, escaping to a beautiful chateau or basing yourself in vibrant Bordeaux city, discover the beauty of south-west France at your own pace with a rental car from Bordeaux Airport.
