People have their own travel style in which they have evolved over the years. During my Journey in Cannes I only bought one wonderful rail pass and a modest car rental for my entire trip. Which I find is better than a train. I saw and noticed that renting a car in Cannes is generally more expensive than other European countries and more complicated too but it's worth it for having the freedom to explore Cannes at your own speed.
Firstly you have to decide whether you need to hire a car or not. If you're going from one big city to big city like Cannes, take the train instead because European countries have an outstanding public transportation system. But preferably for exploring the countryside, thinking of renting a car is not a bad option.
For the best and cheap prices, always prefer to book rent a car in advance from the internet. It's easy, you can start your search on several travel-booking sites such as: Travelocity, or Kayak, and Expedia, also try to visit the company’s own websites for the comparisons and bookings. Through my experience I found that it can be cheaper to hire rental with a third party agent, he works as middleman instead directly with the vendor.
Cannes cars are cheaper economical when they are rented by the week with an unlimited mileage. You can also notice that daily rates are generally high but typically, the longer you are going to rent, then lesser it'll cost per day. Try to always Plan your journey thoughtfully with these helpful tips in mind: renting a car at an airport sometimes cost higher than renting it up downtown. Avoid dropping off your rented car in a small town on a Sunday in Cannes, to rent when offices are likely to be closed. Always remember that it's cheaper to arrange a separate rental car per journey and walk on the ferry.
In order to avoid backtracking, always try to rent the car in one city and drop it to another. You can notice that bigger car rental companies are likely to have more branches in various countries, which increases your options. How much to it costs for a typical rental? About $8700 per week for a car with manual transmission includes unlimited mileage, gas, freeway tolls and parking (about $25 to $40 per day). Last but not least always be sure to bring your driving license, learn the rules and make your journey memorable.
