Rent a car or van at Pointe-a-Pitre Airport with Europcar
As the second busiest airport in the Lesser Antilles after Queen Beatrix International Airport located in Aruba, Pointe-a-Pitre Airport is a gateway to the island of Grande-Terre in Guadeloupe, France. Located in Abymes, just over two kilometres north-northeast of Pointe-a-Pitre, this bustling travel hub is conveniently located for an exciting and memorable trip, so why not pick up a car from our Europcar Pointe-a-Pitre Airport and hit the road as soon as possible?
The Europcar car hire experience at Pointe-a-Pitre Airport
At Europcar Pointe-a-Pitre Airport, we know that all travellers are different. So, whether you’re visiting the Caribbean island of Guadeloupe for a day, week month or more, we have a hire car to suit your needs. From small and compact like the eco-friendly Renault Clio IV, to the family-friendly Dacia Duster, you won’t be short of choice with the luxury Fiat Scudo being the perfect choice for larger groups. Our special BMW Gran Coup is also highly impressive and is ideal for business trips or memorable occasions such as weddings.
As well as an impressive selection of new, comfortable and reliable hire cars designed to get your around the island with ease, we also have a great fleet of vans ranging from the Renault Kangoo to the Renault Master. Whatever takes your fancy, simply book online in three easy steps and we’ll be waiting to hand over the keys when you arrive.
Discover Pointe-a-Pitre and surroundings by car
Whether you want to head to the local markets like Marché de la Darse, where fishermen sell their catch from boats at the harbour, or watch the world go by at Place de la Victoire lined with quaint little cafes, you can do so when you pick up a car rental from Pointe-a-Pitre Airport.
While this bustling market town is small enough to cross in just 15 minutes, there’s plenty to see and do with top attractions including Cathédrale de St Pierre et St Paul as well as the Museum Schoelcher which pays homage to the life and works of Victor Schoelcher, a major activist who helped abolish slavery in Guadeloupe.
While you’re in the area, be sure to also pass by a commune of Pointe-a-Pitre known as Le Gosier. This picturesque seaside town offers a large marina, tourist accommodation, and many shops as well as a superb aquarium which showcases a rich marine life. Children will love splashing in the waves and building sandcastles at the coast, with the beaches being picture perfect.
As an overseas region of France, Guadeloupe is heavily influenced by French culture, so be sure to sample the local cuisine and perhaps even try a conversation with the locals as you tour the island. If you have time, don’t forget to cross the small sea channel called Rivière Salée which separates Grande-Terre from the rest of Guadeloupe, Basse-Terre.
Driving in Pointe-a-Pitre
As in France, drivers in Guadeloupe stay on the right hand side of the road unless they are overtaking. Symbols and road signs used in France and Europe are also used in Guadeloupe, so be sure to follow these as you navigate unfamiliar road networks.
Most of the roads in Guadeloupe are well-maintained and in a relatively good condition. The island has an expressway and main roads are paved and marked. Other roads do not tend to be as well marked, so take extra care when venturing off the beaten track.
With regards to leaving your car, on-street and off-street parking is available but always follow local signage to avoid fines. If you see other cars parked recklessly, avoid following suit and instead head for a designated parking space.
