Bordeaux is a good place to visit in winter if you would like to take a ski trip to the Pyrenees. Make sure you have your snow chains and ski rack and let your car hire take you into the mountains – there are ski resorts between three and four hour drives away from Bordeaux. Alternatively you could stay in the city and use your car hire to visit the Bordeaux Wine & Trade Museum or some of the cosy cafes to keep you out of the cold.

Accueil et service au top, bravo
Neil J.
I picked up my car at Sixt in the Bordeaux train station. Jonathan facilitated changing my reservation so that I could drop it off at the Sixt airport location. Both Jonathan, and the staff at the airport, were friendly, helpful, and efficient. Definitely a good car-rental experience. I would be happy to rent from Sixt again on my next journey
