Lyon Perrache is Lyon's second train station in the Perrache district. The only TGV line which still calls at Lyon Perrache, is a direct connection with Paris Gare de Lyon. The station dates back to 1855, but the old front of the station has paled into insignificance between all the buildings and the streetcar and subway stations, which have been constructed in front of the station. The station is located on an island which is encircled by the Rhône and Saône Rivers.
Lyon's city buses leave opposite the station. Take the footbridge at the exit 'Porte Carnot'. Regional buses also leave here. Eurolines, a European bus company serving many destinations, also uses this bus station as its point of departure. Lyon has two streetcar lines. Both stop inside the streetcar station opposite Lyon Perrache Train Station. It only takes a few minutes by subway to reach Lyon's city center.
You can also rent a car at Lyon Perrache Station. There are four car rental companies: Hertz, Avis, Europcar, and National. You can also rent bikes throughout Lyon.
The station has Wi-Fi and an AED and is equipped for the disabled. There are also a waiting room and a meeting point for travelers.
On the footbridge connecting the station and the subway station you'll find a buffet restaurant/bar and a takeout restaurant.
There's a Relay kiosk which sells magazines, newspapers, and books on the footbridge between the station and the subway station.
Frequently asked questions
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.
