FAQ Overview
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for your rental car is mainly made by credit card. It is possible to pay by debit card, however at the rental counter you will need a credit card issued to the main driver in order to secure the deposit for your rental car.
Who is allowed to drive the rental car and what are the conditions?
A rental car can be driven by the main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. Please note that the main driver must present a valid credit card issued in their name. Furthermore, the main and additional drivers must be in possession of a valid driving license for at least 1 year (for further information, please refer to the rental conditions). Moreover, both, the main and additional drivers are required to present a valid identity card/passport and must be of the minimum age specified in the rental conditions.
Do I have to pick up and return the car at any time? What happens if I am late for pick-up?
We recommend that you pick up the car at the agreed time as the availability of the car cannot be guaranteed in case of delay. As a general rule, local suppliers keep vehicles available up to 30 or 60 minutes after the agreed time. If a delay is inevitable, please contact the rental agency (you will find their contact details on the voucher).
What documents are required to pick up the vehicle?
When picking up the vehicle, the main driver must present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driver's license and their valid credit card.

The Town Hall is a magnificent building completed in 1925. It was planned to commemorate the merging of Calais with Saint Pierre in the late 19th century and the building dominates the city’s main square. Attached to the main building is the impressive tower measuring 246 meters high. Within the building you will find many paintings and stunning stained glass windows telling the story of the departing English who once controlled the city.

Rodin’s Six Burghers is located just outside the Town Hall and is an interesting statue sculpted in the 1890's and recounts the story of the end of the end of the Hundred Years War. The statues depict the city’s mayor and five other citizens handing the keys to the city following a nine month siege.

Eglise Notre-Dame de Calais is the Church of Our Lady, a Roman Catholic church built in between the 12th and 14th century in a mix of Flemish and English architectural style, the church was where Charles De’Gaulle married his wife in 1921. The church was heavily damaged during the Second World War and even to this day renovations are ongoing.

The Citadel was built by the Lord of Boulogne, Philippe le Hurperel, and it was designed to protect the city but served as residence for the Lord and the then for the English ruling elite. When the city was again part of France, the French king renovated the Citadel. Use your hire car Calais and take in this fantastic historical site.

Tour du Guet is a watchtower dating back to the 13th century and it was built by the Count of Boulogne when he designed the city’s fortifications. It has been damaged throughout its history.
