Hire a Car to Explore Montpellier

Enjoy your time in Montpellier at your own pace by hiring a car either at Montpellier Mediterranean Airport or in Montpellier city centre. Popular car rental companies can set you up with a wide variety of vehicles, including seven-seaters if you’re travelling as a family.

While Montpellier’s city centre, a maze of narrow streets and historic buildings, is largely pedestrianised, a car does come in handy for checking out the many sights in the outskirts of the city.

Drive east to reach the family-friendly Mare Nostrum Aquarium and the popular gig venue Zenith Sud. Montpellier Zoo, a thrilling free attraction where you can meet lions, giraffes and more, lies to the north of Montpellier’s historic centre.

Time your visit for the Saint Louis festival in Sete to see the water jousting and enjoy some traditional entertainment.

To the north drive out into the charming towns hidden in the hills. Visit Lodève to enjoy the archaeological and artistic collections of the Lodève Museum and to see its impressive Gothic cathedral before heading back to Montpellier in your hire car.
