KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Pau

  • Car hire in Pau means that you will have enhanced flexibility with your journey, compared to if you were to travel by bus or train. Not only can you travel directly to your destination, which isn’t always the case with public transport, but you can leave and arrive at times that are suited to you rather than abiding by timetables. For instance, you can drive to Oloron-Sainte-Marie in about 40min, which is a journey that takes around 1 hour by bus.
  • Pau Airport (PUF) is very close to the city of Pau, so it’s a convenient place to pick up your hire car from. There are also lots of car hire agencies to pick from, which is ideal for those wanting a hire car. Once you’ve passed through border control, it’s easy to find the agencies. For example, Enterprise and Alamo are both located inside the Arrivals Hall. Your Pau car hire provider will request to see your ID, and for you to complete some documentation, before being taken to your vehicle.
  • Using a car hire in Pau, you’ll find it’s a quaint city popular with tourists throughout the year. In general the driving style is calm and relaxed here, but if the roads are busy, drivers can get a bit impatient. Jaywalking is prohibited in France, but pedestrians also have right of way, so you will often see people crossing the road in areas where they shouldn’t. So it’s important that you drive vigilantly. There are lots of cyclists in France, so remember to check your mirrors frequently, so you know who is around you.
  • When driving a Pau hire car, you will find the roads can be very congested, which is particularly the case during rush hour. This is from about 8:00 to 10:00 in the morning and around 17:00 to 20:00 in the evening. If you prefer to drive when there are fewer cars on the roads, it’s advisable to avoid these times. One of the most congested streets in Pau is Av. de Bareges, which goes through the heart of Pau. An alternative road to take would be Av. Gaston Lacoste, which should have less traffic.
  • Book your rental car in Pau at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Pau are around 29% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Pau?

    If you want a cheap car hire in Pau, you won’t need much more than a compact vehicle, which will help you to navigate the narrow roads with ease. In addition, this type of vehicle helps you to park in tighter spaces. Should you be heading out to the mountainous countryside in the Pyrenees, you will want a car that can handle it. An SUV is a good idea as it offers better traction and handling for the gradients and uneven surfaces.

  • What’s the speed limit in Pau?

    You must abide by the speed limits in Pau, otherwise you risk being charged by law enforcement. It’s also safer to drive within the speed limit, as you are less likely to cause an accident. If a speed camera catches you going too fast, then you will be fined by your car hire company, who will also give your details to the police. The maximum you can drive in the town is 50 km/h (31 mph). On rural roads, it’s 80 km/h (50 mph), whereas on motorways you can go up to 130 km/h (80 mph).

  • Where are the best places to park in Pau?

    As with most larger urban areas, there is lots of parking in Pau. This makes it a great place for those with a hire car. For example, Parking Aragon, which is located in the centre, costs about €2 (roughly £1.7) for 3 hours. You can also park for free at Parking Place de la Monnaie, but you should arrive early as this is a popular place to leave your car. This car park is also only a short walk to the centre of Pau.
