The Provence region in the south of France is famous worldwide for its charming villages, picturesque lavender fields and sparkling beaches. Marseille Provence Airport (MRS) is an excellent starting point to explore the area, particularly if you pick up a car rental—the best way to get around in Provence—after you land.

The airport is located 16 miles (about 28 kilometers) from the city of Marseille, a busy port city (the old harbor or “Vieux Port” is one of the city’s best-known attractions). The delightful provençal city of Aix-en-Provence is 17 miles (about 28 kilometers) away, and Nice is 124 miles (200 kilometers) away.

  Getting around

The airport car rental counters are located outside of Terminal 1, just a short walk once you have exited the airport. There are eleven major car rental companies there, ensuring that you will find the exact price and car model you are looking for; you can pick from options including Jeep, Renault and Citroen. To get to Marseille, you will need to count approximately half an hour by car, although this time can vary based on traffic.

  Choosing your car

For the quintessential Provence and French Riviera experience, consider renting a convertible or sports car, so you can throw down the roof and enjoy the coastal breeze. Families may want to go with more spacious SUVs, minivans or family movers, which are also easy to cool in the summer—an invaluable feature on the sunny highways of southern France. Business travelers may elect to go for a comfortable luxury sedan or limousine from a brand such as Mercedes.

  Tips and advice

1

Marseille is a medium-sized airport, welcoming 9 million passengers in 2017. It has two main terminals, one of which (Terminal 2) was built to service low-cost airlines and their passengers. Check which terminal you fly in or out of ahead of time to avoid delays.

2

During the high season, the Marseille airport welcomes heavier crowds, and longer waits become more likely. You will need to count more time to access the airport and drop off your car hire.

3

In the summer, the area around Marseille is prone to wildfires. As a consequence, the highways around the airport may be shut down, which can cause major delays. Before heading to the airport, be sure to check the latest weather alerts.

4

For a family vacation, rent a car that is large enough for your family’s luggage, as well as any equipment you might need, such as beach chairs and umbrellas (if you are headed to the beaches of the sunny French Riviera).

5

To ensure ease of mind on your holiday, consider looking into a comprehensive insurance option for your Marseille Provence Airport car rental. Car rental operators generally have a number of packages providing a range of coverage choices.

6

While highways are the most efficient way to travel through the south of France, you may want to give yourself additional time to meander through the countryside of Provence on smaller roads—beautiful scenery awaits!
