Car hire location Gare Saint Jean Bordeaux

Hi there

Does anyone know the location of the Europcar drop off yard at this station? We are planning on hiring a car from Paris CDG airport in September to tour Normandy Brittany and the Dordogne area and will return the car at Bordeaux and catch the tram into the CBD for a couple of days in Bordeaux.

I like to know ahead of any problems trying to locate the drop off point rather than driving around in circles looking for the place. Any directions would be useful.

Would dropping the car off at the airport and catching the bus into Bordeaux be a better alternative?

Nothing has been booked yet.

Your advice would be appreciated.

The car hire firms at Bordeaux Gare St Jean are located on the 'other' side of the station, the Belcier side or Rue Terres de Borde. That's the eastern side, not the western side where the tram and bus stations are located.

If you dropped the car at the airport, the bus fare into the city centre, €1,60, is the same flat fare as the tram fare from the station into the city centre, so you won't lose out financially.

Thank you for your reply. Do you know if it is easily found. Some hire car parking lots can be well hidden with very little signage.
