KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Lourdes

  • The beautiful town of Lourdes is regarded as one of the holiest places in the world. Based at the foot of the Pyrenees mountain range, it is the site of a large Catholic pilgrimage site every year, attracting millions of tourists to visit the Grotto of Massabielle, where the Virgin Mary was said to appear before a resident. Car hire in Lourdes will provide a chance to see some of the most exquisite religious sites at the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes and commercial sites such as Le Musee de Cire de Lourdes. The south of France is notoriously beautiful, with small country roads and excellent motorways alike, making your trip to Lourdes easily manageable by car.
  • When looking for car hire in Lourdes, consider Tarbes-Lourdes-Pyrenees Airport (LDE), which may be your landing spot in the country. This small airport has four major car hire companies to get the preferred car for your trip. Avis and Enterprise are based in the Arrivals area, and you can find Hertz and Europcar in the car park outside. The airport is based only about a 17min drive from the Lourdes centre, which means you can drive straight from the airport to your destination.
  • With stunning countryside and landscapes, driving with Lourdes car hire will be a pleasure. Highway A64 connects Lourdes to larger cities such as Toulouse and Pau, and you can also make use of Route Nationale N21, which is a major through-way in the town. The French drive on the right-hand side of the road, observe a 0.05% blood alcohol limit and will not tolerate mobile phone use while driving. Stay buckled up and be patient with animals and pedestrians, as you will likely share the road with them at certain times of the year.
  • While driving in Lourdes will be a great way to get around, do your best to avoid driving near the Sanctuary, especially during pilgrimage months, which are especially busy between Easter and October. It is probably better to park and walk, as traffic barely moves. It is not so much that cars are the congestion, but narrow streets leave no room for the masses of people to walk, and they often spill into the roads. Another challenge for driving in Lourdes is the snow. This provides great skiing holidays but can be treacherous to drive in without snow chains. Ensure you hire them from your car hire agent.
  • Book your rental car in Lourdes at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Lourdes are around 61% cheaper than other car types, on average

However, there will be many occasions that you drive on either steep roads on mountainsides or take road trips around the region, and for this sort of Lourdes trip, you would definitely benefit from a sturdy SUV. Skiing holidays would benefit from the power of a 4x4 too. Take your itinerary and budget into consideration and book according to the time of year.

  • What is the speed limit in Lourdes?

    The French speed limit is standard and fair, and you should have no issues sticking to it with your car hire. Due to the nature of the roads and the events happening in Lourdes, you may find yourself driving in the inner area, where you should keep it down to 50 kph. When you go out on larger roads or outside of built-up areas, you can push it to 80 kph. The motorways will allow you to drive at speeds of up to 130 kph.

  • Where are the best places to park in Lourdes?

    If you are visiting Lourdes during non-peak times of the year, you shouldn’t find parking to be a hassle, as the town is relatively quiet. However, most of the year will experience tourism for the pilgrimage or other religious events, and when the town fills up, it is advisable to look for safe parking for your car. There are several car parks to walk to events and attractions. Consider Parking l'Arrouza, Parcare Centrala and Gare de Lourdes.
