Car & Van Hire in Toulon

Enterprise car hire locations in Toulon

Toulon lies between Marseille and Nice in the western part of the French Riviera. It's a typical example of a port on the Mediterranean and boasts one of France's loveliest harbours, full of small fishing boats as well as luxury yachts. Palm-shaded walkways line the waterfront and there are plenty of shops, boutiques, cafes and restaurants in the centre, with inviting terraces. As well as being a major naval base, the city also has the air of a holiday resort. The fishing industry thrives here and there's a real Provençal heritage, which you'll see when you visit the vibrant markets and enjoy the laid-back Mediterranean lifestyle. Toulon has two Enterprise branches; one at Toulon train station and the other at Toulon Hyeres Airoport, which is a 25-minute drive from Toulon itself. Both branches are close to the region's major roads, offering excellent connections for those using Enterprise Rent-A-Car for their time in Toulon.

Attractions In Toulon

The Rade de Toulon is a historic walking area in the city, offering a flat, easy walk by the port. You can admire the wonderful array of boats and enjoy many super places for a meal or refreshments. Find out about Toulon's role in maritime history at the Musee National de la Marine on the Place Monsenergue. Then, maybe head to the beach at the Plages du Mourillon, with clean water and gritty sand. Anse Magaud is another small local beach with great views and clear sea that's ideal for a swim!

Places To Visit Outside Toulon

The Île de Porquerolles is a perfect day trip from Toulon and travelling there will take around 90 minutes via the A570, which includes hopping on the ferry to get to the island. This idyllic spot has some beautiful coves and small beaches in a magnificent setting. Drive east to Le Lavandou, which will take you around 45 minutes via the D98, and discover this pretty seaside town and former fishing village. There's also the medieval village of Bormes-les-Mimosas nearby, with incredible views and a 16th-century church.

Parking And Traffic Information In Toulon

Toulon divides its street parking areas into two zones: orange and green. These have different rates for parking and zones are indicated on the parking meter. In addition, there are around 2,300 free parking spaces in the city, as well as paid-for car parks, such as Parking Q-Park Toulon Lafayette on Rue Dutasa. Driving in and around Toulon isn't too tricky; you will, however, benefit from a satnav or a paper map to help you find your way around and avoid one-way streets and pedestrianized areas. Like many towns on the coast in the South of France, traffic can get busy, so allow plenty of time for your journey, especially at peak times.
