Bergerac's medieval centre spreads elegantly onto the banks of the Dordogne River. Do it on foot to enjoy pavement cafes and cobbled streets, then jump in a hire car to explore the wider region, famous for its castles and vineyards – Bergerac wine is every bit as good as that of neighbouring Bordeaux.

Find answers to your questions


What age do I need to be to hire a vehicle in Bergerac?

In Bergerac – and indeed across most of France – you need to be over 21 years of age to hire a car. You will also need to have held a full driving licence for at least a year. If you’re under 25, there is likely to be a ‘young driver surcharge’ added to the cost.

What do I need to hire a vehicle in Bergerac?

As well as your passport and a credit card, you will need a valid driving licence. Some car hire companies in Bergerac may also want to verify that you’re within the 12-point limit on your licence, so you may be required to get a ‘check code’ from the DVLA.

Do I need car hire excess insurance in Bergerac?

It’s not a legal requirement in Bergerac, but adding car hire excess insurance will cover you for any bumps, scrapes and accidental damage you may pick up during your trip. Taking out a standalone third party policy in advance can help you avoid paying over the odds for it at a rental collection desk.

Can I rent a car with a debit card in Bergerac?

Some car hire companies in Bergerac, such as Enterprise and Buggs Car Hire, will accept a debit card as long as you have enough cash to cover the deposit. Other providers require a credit card, so make sure you check before your trip.

Which rental companies are available at Bergerac Airport?

You will find several well-known car hire companies in the arrivals hall at Bergerac Airport, such as Avis, Hertz, Europcar, Enterprise and Sixt. There is also an independent local firm called Buggs Car Hire.

Is it cheaper to rent a car at the airport or off site in Bergerac?

In general, the airport can actually work out cheaper than central Bergerac when booked online in advance. However, many great deals are available for either option. Shop around and be sure to check the policy has adequate insurance.

Can you rent a car in Bergerac and drop it off in another city?

Many of the big rental companies have offices in cities across France where you can drop off your car as part of their one-way car hire service. Usually, an additional fee applies, and you need to arrange with your provider in advance if you plan to cross any borders.

Can you rent a car the same day in Bergerac?

You can rent a car on arrival at Bergerac Airport, but it’s worth checking that the service desk’s opening hours coincide with your flight. You are likely to pay more on the day than you would when booking in advance, and you generally won’t have as many options.

Can I hire a vehicle at 21 years of age in Bergerac?

Yes. As long as you have had your licence for a year, many car rental companies in Bergerac will allow 21-year-olds to rent a vehicle. Anyone under 25 will have to pay an additional fee, though, the cost of which varies with each provider.
