Car Hire

All airports have car hire available. Our advice would be to follow the relevant section on Martin Lewis's site Moneysavingexpert to get the best deal for you.


You can use one of the many Channel Ferry routes to get to France (Brittany Ferries, DFDS Seaways, P&O Ferries) or the Channel Tunnel (Eurotunnel).

You can also choose a ferry route to Santander or Bilbao in Spain (Brittany Ferries).

If you have a GPS, follow the provided instructions to Ginoles, 11500. The exception is if you are driving from Santander or Bilbao. Our advice would be to get off the E80/A64 at junction 20 signposted for Foix and follow the D117 (your GPS may want you to continue on the autoroute to Toulouse). This is a much more pleasant drive and you get excellent views of the Pyrenees for only a few minutes more travel time.
