Montpellier Train Station Car Rental

Montpellier Train Station (Gare Gare St. Roch) Basics.....

The Montpellier Train Station (Gare St. Roch) is the busiest and largest train station in the Montpellier region in France.  For whatever reason, the previous name giving tribute to the city that it resides in, Gare de Montpellier, was changed to Gare de St. Roch.  The station houses trains that run to Bordeaux, Nimes, Marseille, Perpignan and many, many other areas.


Montpellier Train Station Car Rental.....

Several car rental companies at the Montpellier Train Station have vehicles available.  These currently include Europcar, Avis, Sixt, Hertz and National.  The actual vehicles are located South of the Station right next to the tracks.  Walk towards the SNCF building on the other side of the overpass.  The car rental parking area is about 400 meters from the station.  Make sure that you get good directions to the vehicle when speaking with the agent inside the station.    

When returning your rental car back to the car rental parking area, again, we recommend that you pick up some sort of map from the car rental agent before you leave the station.  If you're not familiar with the area, it's easy to get turned around near the station, and find yourself driving around in circles trying to find a way to return the vehicle.  

The actual park (in particular for car rental returns) should be accessed via Avenue de. Maurin - This is a smallish road that runs South of the station, parallel (mostly) to the tracks.  The turnoff from Avenue de. Maurin is located between the Nouveau Saint-Roch Tram pickup to the South and a restaurant called the Brassierie le Bistrot to the North.  It should be noted that if you're traveling North on Avenue de. Maurin looking (again, somewhat parallel to the North-South tracks) for the car rental return turnoff, it is not well-marked at all.  The turnoff is located at a couple of small stoplights, and there's a blue parking sign - noted with the large white letter "P".  Good luck, it's not easy unless you're well acquainted with the turnoff.

While you're close you might pick up a bite to eat at the Brassierie le Bistrot mentioned above.  Going North from the car rental turnoff, you will find it a few hundred meters North of the car rental turn-in.  The little Bistro will be marked with a red awning, and several tables and chairs set up in for its patrons.

Other Montpellier Train Station Car Rental Considerations....

Prices for rental cars at the Montpellier Train Station will be comparable to those found at the Montpellier Airport - so we're not sure that you'll find much help there.  One car rental option that you might have is in the Southern area of the city of Montpellier - particularly in the La Croix d' Argent area.  There are a few car rental options down there that might be a better point to visit the Lattes area, or the Saint Jean de Vedas areas.  Prices for rental cars are very competitive down there.  Simply type in Montpellier in the booking engine above, and choose your desired car rental location.

Back to the station rentals, you will be able to pick up just about any type of vehicle.  SUV's, luxury cars, economy cars, vans (7-passengers and 9-passengers) area generally all available.  Pre-book to increase your chances of getting what you want.
