KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Brest

  • Car hire in Brest provides numerous advantages over other modes of transport, particularly public transport. With a car, you have the freedom to explore at your own pace without being constrained by bus or train schedules. You can easily visit destinations like Pointe Saint-Mathieu, explore the charming village of Locronan, or venture further and discover the natural beauty of Crozon Peninsula or the picturesque Camaret-sur-Mer. Experience the convenience and independence of Brest car hire, unlocking the true beauty of the region.
  • Car hire services at Brest are conveniently located at Brest Bretagne Airport (BES). Upon arrival, make your way to the Arrivals Hall in the terminal building. Here, you'll find the car hire desks where you can pick up your vehicle. Brest Bretagne Airport is the primary airport serving the city, ensuring a seamless start to your journey. With car hire in Brest at the airport, you can easily access the city centre and explore the captivating attractions of Brest and its surrounding regions.
  • When driving in Brest, be aware of the city's narrow streets and bustling traffic. Pedestrians are common in the city centre, so exercise caution and watch out for people crossing the road. Some areas may have one-way streets or restricted zones, so pay attention to the signage. Additionally, parking can be limited in the city centre, so it's advisable to use public parking facilities or opt for designated parking areas. Familiarise yourself with the city's layout and plan your route to navigate the streets more confidently.
  • During rush hour in Brest, which typically occurs from 08:00 - 09:00 and 17:00 - 18:30, traffic congestion can be heavy, especially on major routes like Boulevard de l'Europe and Rue Jean Jaurès. Plan your journeys accordingly to avoid delays. Additionally, during winter, adverse weather conditions, such as snow and ice, may make driving more challenging, especially in hilly or mountainous areas surrounding the city. Consider including snow tyres during the hiring process during this time.
  • Book your car hire in Brest at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy hire cars in Brest are around 69% cheaper than other car types, on average

Booked the car because it was about 30 euros on Kayak. Turns out, I ended up having to pay 109 euros for the rental. Total rip off!

Pros:

Friendly staff, all of whom spoke English. They offered us an automatic and upgrade of our car with no extra fees. Drop off at CDG was exceedingly easy! Easier than at most US airports for sure. Overall a great experience.

Cons:

Where we picked up the car at the train station in Brest would have been super sketchy if it had been evening or after dark. Fine during the day.
