Car Rental from Hertz in Bayeux

We will be in Bayeux in September and would like to rent a car (will be driving to Etretat and then Reims and returning to Charles DeGaulle airport). Is the Hertz rental at the gas station reliable? Will they have automatic transmission (ie, no surprises when we would pick up the car)?

Thank you for your response(s).

Nearby Caen is a bigger town and has a larger selection of rental cars to choose from. Your chances of getting a car with automatic transmission are better in Caen. Caen is a short train ride from Bayeux and there are a lot of rental car offices next to the Caen train station.

Hi Rockyjoe

Yes, we already have a rental scheduled in Caen. Since we are driving to Entretat that day, I was trying to save some time... but was concerned about renting from such a small location.

Thank you

There is never a guarantee of an automatic car. In general, the French do not drive automatics, so the rental companies have only a small stock of them. If another renter damages an automatic car or returns it late, there may not be another available. The chance of this is greater at small outlets.

Thank you. Will stick with the Caen option and go from there up to Etretat.
