Chartres Train Station to Europcar

by citod

We're arriving in Chartres from Paris by train (2 women and luggage) and need to pick-up a rental car at Europcar. Has anyone had experience with this? At one point I was told is would be a "short" walk, but Google map shows a 40 minute walk and no sidewalks - not good! Are taxis readily available from the train station?

It's about 1 km by foot from gare de Chartres to rue du Marechal Leclerc (Europcar Chartres)
Reach the place Place Pierre Semard in front of the train station
Turn right Rue Pierre Nicole
Take Rue Claude Chauveau-Lagarde
Turn right Rue du Maréchal Leclerc
use Viamichelin or Mappy for a reliable map

Now i see : the main depot is indeed in Luisant like Pemad said but there is an agency in Chartres itself
where do you have to pick your car from exactly ?

Re: Chartres Train Station to Europcar

by citod

We used Auto Europe to reserve the car from Europcar. The pick-up address on the reservation form is 9 rue du Marechal Leclerc in Chartres. I miss read the directions on Google. You are correct it's only about 1km away.

I like Pedmar's advice, I didn't think about asking for a pick-up from Europcar. I'll try that first.

Pedmar, you have responded to several of my questions with very helpful suggestions. Just wanted you to know how much I've appreciated your comments.

Yes I opened Google Maps and typed in the search box : Europcar Chartres

and the Numero Uno (oops sorry La Premiere) at the top is 9 Rue du MarĂ©chal Leclerc, 28600 Luisant, France‎

Now looking at that address in Street View Google Maps you can see a large garage with Europcar displayed. And this location is shown as 3 kms from the Gare - station- at Chartres. And yes it would be a long walk and yes there are taxis at the train station and it would take you a few minutes to get to the Europcar location. Under 10 for sure.
On the Europcar web itself for Europcar Chartes it also shows this same address:
http://www.europcar.com/car-rental-CHARTRES_LUISANT.html

It also shows the office hours and telephone number : Phone: +33 0237280606

Otherwise phone them and ask them to meet you at the station with all the paperwork and maybe they could do this for you.

Travel Tips for Chartres

Bijouterie (Jewellery Shop)

by Kate-Me

In Chartres I just loved the architecture of the buildings, particularly the traditional French ones, brightly painted ones, with window shutters.
I was often more interested in the shops themselves, than what was inside!

The Jambs

by Goner

The outdoor sculptures of Chartres are almost as renowned as the stained glass windows. They adorn the cathedral's exterior around the doorways. The sculptures in the photo are on the sides of the Royal Portal and are of the Apostles.

For more information on the sculptures, check out http://ww.blufflon.edu

Visit a quiet garden right behind the cathedral!

by Beausoleil

If you walk around to the back of the Cathedral Notre Dame, there is an unexpected garden in the rear. Directly behind the cathedral is an amazing view over the city and clear out into the country (on a clear day). There is a small garden maze below the viewpoint and if you continue around the back of the cathedral you come to the Beaux Arts Museum and several benches under the trees.

We like to sit in the little park and do our postcards. The Beaux Arts is definitely worth a visit and there are great photo ops in the little park.

The Tympanum -- from the West or Royal Portals

by shrimp56

There are three doors that form the front entrance to Chartres. The tympanum over the central one is from the Book of Revelations -- Christ surrounded by the four beasts -- representing the Apocalypse.
.
This part of the cathedral dates to 1145-55 and survived the fire to be incorporated into the "new" church.

Chartres Has A Relic.

by Toyin

Do you know what is a relic?

According to the the pamflet they offered,..A Relic is what remains of the body of a holy person, or something which has belong to him.

When you visit this Catherale, at the Eastern end, and behind the choir, in the ambulatory, at a point 'R' in the directory you will be given,..There is a Relic. It is said to be the veil which would have wrapped Jesus at his birth.

The veil has been given to Charlemagne. It has been in the cathedrale since the 9th century, and since then, many pilgrims have come to Chartres to pray Jesus with Mary.
