KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Bastia

  • Take in the beautiful scenes of nature as you drive through the region of Upper Corsica in your hire car. Having a car will enable you to drive to numerous islands and relax on their sandy beaches. Sports activities like surfing, fishing, or hiking are also possible. Bastia offers plenty of historical and cultural attractions along with an exciting nightlife. With a car you’ll be able to visit local bars and clubs for some nighttime entertainment.
  • Travelers to the French Riviera often fly into the Bastia-Poretta Airport. Offering numerous shops and services, you’ll find it easy to rent a car from this facility. Once you’re off the plane, you’ll take just a short walk through the arrivals hall, where you’ll find numerous hire car agencies including Alamo, Budget, and Hertz.
  • There are many winding roads around the islands so you’ll need to be extra-cautious. Additionally, Bastia has strict driving laws about being distracted. Note that you could get pulled over for eating or talking on the phone without a headset while driving.
  • Traffic is busiest around Bastia in the summer months. Because of its small population, rush hour is typically not a major problem but it can still get congested at times. This is mostly around the downtown area during the peak commuting hours of 7 a.m. - 9 a.m. in the morning and 5 p.m. - 7 p.m. in the evening.
  • Book your rental car in Bastia at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Bastia are around 49% cheaper than other car types, on average

FAQs about renting a car in Bastia

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

    With such beautiful routes, it would be nice to let down the top of a convertible as you drive around North Corsica. A smaller vehicle might also be ideal because of the winding roads around the beach towns and communities. Be sure to let your hire agent know if you need a car with automatic transmission, as most hire cars in Bastia are stick shifts.

  • What’s the speed limit in Bastia?

    Speed limits are pretty simple to remember in Bastia and Corsica. When you are driving in and around the town, keep your speed down to 50 km (or 31 mph). Once you are on the highway, if it is more like an interstate, the maximum speed allowed will be 90 km (or 55 mph). Outside of the city on the motorways you can travel at speeds of up to 110 km (or 68 mph). Note that there are speed cameras everywhere around Bastia.

  • Where are the best places to park in Bastia?

    Parking in the evening and on weekends is easy to find in Bastia, even on the street.

Wij hadden een peugeot 308 SW besteld en ter plaatse kregen we te horen dat we een VW I bus 100 % elektrisch kregen. We schrokken in de eerste plaats omdat we nog nooit elektrisch gereden hadden en geen ander model kregen. Gelukkig is Corsica heel goed voorzien van laadpunten en hebben we genoten van onze ritjes door het mooie Corse.

I'd recommend to read the Google reviews. The staff should be replaced asap. "Rude and arrogant" are the nicer descriptions....

The car was good However, we were charged 50€ more with no explanation. Hertz was not able to explain why this extra cost is applied when asked. The car rented to us without prior cleaning

When we picked up the car we specifically asked if we needed to fill up the gas tank and the representative at the desk said no. We also used google translate to make sure our communication was understood correctly. When we dropped off the car the representative said we needed to fill the car up with gas when dropping off. We did not receive a written or emailed contract stating that we needed to fill up. We were charged an exorbitant amount without prior warning. This was a horrible experience. I would like to be credited for this outrageous charge.

The local rental office did not accepted the reservation we made with Priceline/Kayak. Instead they offered a more expensive contract. Very upsetting.

The price indicated on Kayak and Priceline is significantly different from the price you will have to pay at the counter. Car was clean, but please remember to take pictures of every scratch as their own way of keeping track is rather shady and ambiguous.
