Rent a car in Lyon

Our Lyon car rental desks can be easily located at Lyon Saint Exupéry Airport, as well as the city’s three main train stations and a number of convenient posts downtown. Wherever you decide to check in, our efficient teams will soon have you en route to exploring France’s third largest city and the mountainous Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region.


Renowned for its unrivalled gastronomy and diverse architecture that’s been shaped by 2,000 years of history, Lyon’s nickname is the Capital of Lights due to the dazzling Fête des Lumières that’s held here every December. Further afield, an assembly of charming medieval towns, including the historic Vienne, and the snow-capped French Alps await.


Heading on a one-way journey? Make the most of our flexible return options, which enable you to collect your vehicle in Lyon and drop it off elsewhere at the end of your trip.
