Corsica is the birthplace of France’s most famous son – Napoleon Bonaparte.
With your rental car in Bastia, make a trip to the northern tip – Cap Corse.
Many places in Corsica are inaccessible by public transport with only three train lines connecting the cities and most buses running only twice a day. Rent a car in Bastia to be on flexible schedule. Roads in Corsica are mostly mountainous, narrow and winding with hairpin bends. Thus, if you already have experience driving on such roads, then it is ideal to rent a car in Bastia.
If arriving by flight, consider the car rental services at Bastia airport or if coming by ferry, look for services for car hire at Bastia harbour. Towns have limited parking and roads narrow, so, it’s advisable to rent a car in Bastia which is comparatively smaller. For car rental in Bastia you need to be least 21 years old – sometimes even 25 years depending on the rental conditions - and have a driver’s licence for more than a year, otherwise you will need to possess an EU driving licence. Present your driving licence, a valid credit card and proof of identity to rent a car in Bastia.
July and August are a busy time throughout Corsica, and roads can have more traffic than usual. Maintain a speed of 90km/h (56mph) on non-urban areas and other roads when driving through Corsica. When getting around within a town, drive slowly at 60km/h (37mph).
