1.9 Horrible20 Sep. 2021
It wasn't made clear that the vehicle we rented only had a range of 100km. We had to rent a different car that changed the price from 50 euro to 600 euro.

ToulouseCar was OK.Normally I can pick up keys from the desk in the airport but this time I had to register there and then collect keys from the cabin in the car park. So I had to queue twice. Then when the car arrived it had many more scratches on it than were already noted, so I had to spend time with your operative going around it in the rain, not good. I hire cars about 5 times a year from Toulouse and normally go with Sixt, but this experience means I will probably go with someone else next time.
4.0 Okay8 Apr. 2016
I'll never use them againBrand new, 80km, Skoda Fabia. One way drop-off from Toulouse to Bordeaux.This is the first time we have used Sixt - having hired almost 50 cars from Toulouse airport over the years . We booked to collect the car from the airport which was confirmed on the initial booking but then without our knowledge, changed to a town pick-up on the final confirmation 2 days before pick-up - it took 3 emails to get it put right. The price was quoted in £ but invoiced in Euros - if we had known that we would have saved bank exchange charges by using a Euro bank account rather than a Sterling account. On our return we found that they had credited our account with the hire charge only to then take it again, incurring further exchange charges - the reason being, although we weren't told at the time, that we had used a different credit card for the security deposit to the one used for the original booking. 3 further emails but no apology or offer to re-imburse the extra bank charges - just an arrogant conceit on behalf of both Sixt France and Sixt UK that 'Sixt is right, the customer is wrong'. Decent cars let down by sloppy administration and unhelpful staff.

I selected 2-doors Opel Corsa (or similar) but was presented a 2-doors Fiat 500. A bit of a dissappointment but it was in the same category and I couldn't complain for the price of 25€ / d. The young lady who signed us in was very kind, patient and helpful. Good experience.

6.0 Good26 Aug. 2019
The car was great.I rarely rent cars so this may be common knowledge, but when they say you dont need to return the car with a full tank of petrol, you should still do it. Hertz charged me themselves on a per litre basis to a full tank, then added an extra 20% fee on top. They should have advised me this on pick up!
10.0 Excellent31 Mar. 2019
The staff were super helpful & efficient. Particularly Brian @ Drop OffI had tried to get a smaller automatic car but apparently there is only one Golf @ Toulouse. I come several times a year - is it possible to reserve the only one ?
4.4 Okay9 Oct. 2016
not as advertisedThe car drove nicely and got good gas mileageThe Hertz rental page I selected on line showed a picture of a small van to accommodate seven adults, but the actual car was a very small station wagon which was extremely cramped and with absolutely zero space for luggage. Extremely misleading.

2.8 Mediocre4 Nov. 2018
A total rip-off ! Will never book again with KayakVery unclear insurance policy. I had to pay more than double the rental price to get just a basic insurance. I couldn’t get a clear explanation at pick up of the insurance I got, and it was not possible to modify the contract online to understand the insurance policy or to add an insurance.
7.2 Good6 Sep. 2016
Reliable car, clean and comfortableNo one showed me any of the car features eg. Petrol. They also didn't explain where to pick up or drop off the car. In Nimes I drove around for 45min looking for a place to park close to rental. And then when I arrived they told me to take it to the car park. Maybe it would have been much easier and nicer if they had said this before hand.

Car hire excess insurance in Toulouse

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Toulouse car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Toulouse.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Toulouse car rental.

Top tips for hiring a car in Toulouse

  • A car hire is the most comfortable and efficient way not only to explore the city of Toulouse, but also the surrounding region of Southern France. A car will let you tour the city's main attractions, including the Capitole and Saint-Sernin Basilica, at your own pace. It is also the perfect way to cruise freely to other destinations, such as the Pyrenees Mountains or the famous Languedoc Roussillon wine region.
  • All the big car hire agencies, including Hertz, Europcar, and Avis, can be found at Toulouse Blagnac Airport (TLS), which is located 3.6 miles northwest of the city center. Most of the car hire companies are situated in Hall C of the Arrivals terminal, while Sixt is located in Hall B. You can easily walk between the different halls.
  • Driving in Toulouse is very straightforward, just remember the signs will be expressed in kilometers rather than in miles. The freeway system in the region is also easy to navigate, and it connects major cities. Although you don't need an International Driving Permit (IDP), it's best if you carry one with you. It's easy to obtain and it might come in handy if you get involved in a fender bender.
  • Traffic in Toulouse is usually easy to cope with, but it does get a little heavier during rush hours, so avoid driving around between 7:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m., and then again between 5 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., so you don't add extra time to your travels – particularly if you're heading to the airport. Traffic also gets more congested during the holiday season, as the Pyrenees are quite popular among winter sports lovers.
  • 25% of our users found a car hire in Toulouse for $36 or less
  • Book your car hire in Toulouse at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hires in Toulouse are around 60% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • The speed limit in urban areas across France is typically 50 kilometers per hour (31 miles per hour), but it may be lower in certain residential areas, so look for posted signs.

You can find lower prices of around €4.92 ($5.60) per gallon, and the higher prices are usually €5.68 ($6.47) per gallon. Avoid filling up your tank on the autoroute (highway), and wait instead until you find the next town as hypermarkets offer cheaper petrol prices.

  • Street parking in the city center is plentiful, but usually time-limited. Meters cost about €1.59 ($1.81) per hour, but it is free on Sundays and also during the first two weeks of August. There are lots of public parking lots downtown, such as the one in Place du Capitole, which aren't time-restricted but are more expensive with hourly rates of €2.20 ($2.50).
