Car Hire and Transfers

Hiring a car is a great way to see Corsica, and we are pleased to offer a competitively priced service with Avis, our partner on the island. Alternatively, you may wish to relax and leave your car worries at home...

Avis Car Hire

The majority of our holidays include car hire, if your holiday includes a transfer and you wish to hire a car or would like to upgrade from one group to another, prices are shown in the table below. With offices at all airports and in larger towns, our car hire partner offers a good level of customer service to guests with dedicated pick up points for Corsican Places guests.

Car hire on the island is in great demand, especially in July and August, and not all car hire grades will be available in the busier periods, therefore it is advisable to book as early as you can.

Our prices include unlimited mileage, two named drivers per car, pick up and drop off from different offices at no extra charge (minimum 7 days hire). All our hire car prices, including those forming part of the package price incorporate Super Collision Damage Waiver (excluding underside of car) and Super Theft Protection Cover, which covers the excess normally levied by other tour operators and hire car companies in Corsica. 

Booster seats and baby seats (front facing from 9 months) can be reserved at the time of booking at a supplement of £27 per booster seat and £60 per baby seat - however, we recommend you take your own booster/baby seats, which can be carried free of charge on Calvi and Figari flights. For babies requiring a rear facing seat, these cannot be provided by the car hire company and must be taken by yourself.

Drivers must be at least 21 years old and have held a full licence for at least 1 year. If you have a photocard driving licence you will no longer be asked for the paper counterpart but will need to consent to your records being accessed as required. The paper counterpart to the UK driver’s licence was abolished from June 2015. Customers no longer need to present this  when collecting your hire car. Neither do you need to generate a code from the DVLA website, simply present your photocard driving licence and a valid credit card for each named driver.

Please note a credit card swipe will be required to collect your hire car.

 

To upgrade from the car type included in your holiday, calculate the difference between the car you require and the type included in your holiday. Please note that car hire models within a grade are as an indication and particular makes and models can not be guaranteed.
