Car hires in Nimes: practical information

Where to rent a car in Nimes

Heading to Nimes in southern France? It’s a Roman treasure! Start your trip planning with cheap flights to Nimes-Garons Airport. If you plan to take day trips from the city, it’s best to also book a Nimes rental car at the same time. At the airport choose from Avis, Europcar, Hertz, Alamo or National Citer.

Driving in Nimes: parking and other tips

Most all of Nimes’ attractions are within walking distance of each other in the city centre so you can probably leave your car hire at your Nimes hotel. Also, the historic centre is car-free, all the more reason to walk!

If you need car parking in the city centre, try the Vinci parking lot near the central train station. Alternatively, choose a hotel in Nimes with parking. Some hotels may not have on-side parking but can offer a special discount at a nearby car park.

Road trips from Nimes: what to do, what to see

Pont du Gare

Le Pont du Gard

If you still want to see more Roman ruins after visiting Nimes’ city centre, head out to the A9 with your Nimes car hire and visit this impressive aqueduct. It is clearly signposted from the motorway and in Roman times, this aqueduct used to carry water to Nimes.

Arles

Arles

This Roman town is a treat to visit during the summer when it’s bullfighting season. It’s a great spot to stop if you’re en route to Camargue. Do the pastel and sun-baked houses here remind you of something? If you’re a fan of Van Gogh, you’ll no doubt recognise this place.

La Camargue

La Camargue

This national wildlife reserve is one of the best places for birdwatching in all of Europe. It’s a giant river delta and is home to France’s wild white horses. The nearby salt flats also produce a lot of salt, a product the locals swear by and a must-buy souvenir.
