1) Private car rental in Corsica (Calvi, Ajaccio, Bastia, Porto Vecchio ...)

You want to discover Corsica without taking the bus or the train, and you are right, because this will allow you to be more free during your wanderings on the island of beauty.

For my part, I have rented a car twice in Corsica, one through the Carigami site (since I have not passed them yet because the customer service is impeccable as well as being - You can read my full article "Car rental tips" ) and the other time through the site of OuiCar (French company - car rental between individuals in Corsica) and I was not disappointed either, the owners are accommodating and some even offer to leave the car at the airport (specified in the description ), in short, he is much more accommodating and contacts the owner directly.

  • Private car rental in Corsica (Calvi, Ajaccio, Bastia, Porto Vecchio ...)

During my stay in Corsica (Calvi, Ajaccio, Bastia, Porto Vecchio ...), I rented a private car in Calvi on the OuiCar site (French company - car rental between individuals in Corsica), from my A / R flight leaving the Calvi airport. I used the taxi to get to the city center and the next day I had an appointment with the owner who came to the parking lot of my hotel to give me his car.




Remember to take a video / photo of the car before testing it ... This will be a good guarantee ...

Personally, if you stay in the same city during your stay, it will be very difficult to visit the surroundings, so Rent a private car in Corsica (Calvi, Ajaccio, Bastia ...) it's almost a must! If you don't, you will miss out on a lot and that would be a shame.

If I have to advise you between Carigami (professional rental) and OuiCar (French company), I must admit that I did not have any problem with either and in terms of prices the same is concerned (with OuiCar it is more flexible because it is between individuals, so He is more accommodating and the owner of the vehicle will give you tips…).

The plus (and not least) of Carigami is that you collect / bring the vehicle directly to the airport and there is always a person waiting for you at the agency, so we save time during the trip ...


2) How private car rental works in Corsica

What is OuiCar? This is a private car rental site in Corsica (Calvi, Ajaccio, Bastia, Porto Vecchio…) created by the French.

I rented the private car from Cassis for 6 days. But you can do it 2 days very well, then another 2 days whenever you want ... It is up to you to see the availability ... Pay attention to this.

If you want to go through a non-specific car rental site, I recommend Carigami. You can read my full article "Car Rental Tips").


  • How does this site work?

Well, when you are registered on their site, you will be asked for an identity document, your driver's license.



Once validated, you receive an email saying that everything is fine, and you can rent a car in Corsica (Calvi, Ajaccio, Bastia, Porto Vecchio…). Therefore, it is better to create an account and validate your photos with a permit ... before your trip, but don't forget to bring your permit and identity card, that goes without saying!

/! Be careful and watch the number of kilometers per day. In this example, I took for one day, from May 25 (tomorrow) to May 26 (aprem). The price is € 53 but you can see that you have to do the 200km maximum, and if you exceed it, the price will be € 0,07 per kilometer, which is not huge (0,07 * 50km = 3,5, XNUMX €).

So in the case of exceeding the kilometers, either you pay the amount to the owner in cash or the owner marks the amount to be debited from the bank card in the contract.

You can see the price per kilometer by clicking on the detail of the price to pay.

After the owners are not too careful (neither should it be abused), here is one more reason to go to individuals rather than professionals who think above all about profit ...
