Location information for Lorient

Introduction

During the seventeenth century the port city of Lorient was an important base for ships of the Compagnie des Indes, the French equivalent of the Dutch East India Company and the English East India Company. Little is left to see of that history, as the city was almost completely destroyed during World War II. Only the submarine pens of the Nazis remained, which were subsequently enlarged by the French for their own nuclear submarines... The naval base has been deserted though.

Population

Lorient has almost 60,000 inhabitants.

Location

Lorient is located in France on Brittany's south coast, where the rivers Blavet and Scorff discharge into the Atlantic Ocean. An island off the coast, the Île de Groix, protects the natural harbor from the whims of the sea.

Economy

Lorient is an important commercial and fishing port. Tourism also brings in cash, because there are several marinas in Lorient's bay. In addition, every year, the city organizes the Festival Interceltique de Lorient, which draws hundreds of thousands of people.

Airports

The city's airport, Aéroport de Lorient Bretagne Sud (also: Lorient-Lann-Bihoué Airport) is situated 5 kilometers northwest of the center. As regards to size it's a large airport built by the Nazis during World War II. It's easily reachable by rental car: from the center you take the Rue de Belgique (D765) and next the Rue du Moulin du Gaillec which leads to the airport.

Public Transport

Lorient has good public transport. All buses leave from the bus station opposite the Gare SNCF (the train station). There are train connections with for example Quimper, Nantes, Rennes and the French capital Paris (accessible by TGV; travel time: less than 4 hours).

Traffic and Parking

Lorient isn't a very busy city and you'll have little trouble finding your way around or finding a free parking place. Lorient is a good base to explore Brittany by car.

Hotels

Lorient has a huge choice of accommodations, mainly in the midrange and budget category. There's a cluster of basic guesthouses along the Rue Lazare-Carnot. In general, you don't need to book your room in advance, except when you visit the city during the Festival Interceltique.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is EasyTerra Car Rental the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

Our rates are all-inclusive. Our reservation department will inform you in advance should additional costs apply. You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
