carhire for France and Spain from Carcassonne

by ozcarol

Is there a car hire company that will hire a car from Carcassonne and allow it to be used in N Spain also without charging vast amounts of money?

Re: carhire for France and Spain from Carcassonne

by Redang

Yes, you should ask the company (diferents ones) and compare prices-

As noted above, you need to get quotes from different companies for your specific requirements.

You should expect to pay a premium if you intend to take any European hire car into another country.

We made our car rental starting in Dijon, and went across France into Spain for ten days and then returned in Bordeaux and there were no restrictions for driving between these countries, BUT we did encounter the fact that you are REQUIRED to have an International Drivers License (for the sake of translation, if needed, in a non-English speaking country, such as Spain) and there can be a good size fine if caught without it! so, even though the rental car agencies do not mention it, make sure you get it.

You will pay a high cross border drop off fee if you leave it in Spain.

Some of the smaller car hire and agency companies charge a higher fee for using cross border. Hertz do not. You can get a discount if you book via the Ryanair website and enter a FR flight number.

If you are renting the car for more than a few days, it is cheaper to get annual excess insurance. It is GBP49 per year from here : http://www.insurance4carhire.com/index.asp?subRefID=0&curID=1&langID=1&refID=1301 compared to around €15 per day with hertz.

If you hire cars regularly, and are brave, the excess insurance is voluntary. The excess is around €900 - so rent 60 days accident free and you are in pocket.

EU resident driving licenses are valid throughout EU without further translation. Strictly, non EU drivers need a certified translation which is obtained cheaply by getting an IDL.

If you want a second driver, check costs up front. At €15 - €20 per day it can cost more than the hire !

Always remember that the people on the car rental desk are paid a commission for upselling. In a foreign language make sure you don't sign for GPS, child seats, optional insurance cover, etc etc you don't really need or want.

Michel Jordy, archéologue et photographe

by Klod5

Amateur d'art, historien et archéologue, fondateur en 1911 de l'Hôtel de la cité, Michel Jordy (1863-1945), se livra pendant plus d'un demi siècle à des recherches dans le monument dont il entendait prouver l'origine romaine. Il est l'auteur d'une " Histoire de la cité de Carcassonne " restée inédite. Il s'en fit aussi le photographe, lui consacrant sa vie et œuvrant pour son rayonnement. Ses clichés surprennent d'abord par leur abondance, par la répétition des angles de vue. Mais pour Michel Jordy, il s'agit de capter "la parole des pierres", de rendre compte des variations qui, dans les jeux de lumière et les changements de saisons, affectent de façon plus ou moins perceptible le monument.
Michel Jordy, archaeologist and photographer

Amateur of art, historian and archaeologist, founding in 1911 the hotel of the city, Michel Jordy (1863-1945), delivered himself during more of a half century to research in the monument of which he heard to prove the Roman origin. He is the author of a "History of the city of Carcassonne" remained unpublished. He also made himself the photographer, dedicating him his life and œuvrant for its radiance, of it. His photos first surprise by their abundance, by the repetition of the view angles. But for Michel Jordy, it is about capturing "the speech of the stones", to give account of the variations that, in the games of light and the changes of seasons, affect way more or less audible the monument.

Le curé de Cucugnan

by Klod5

Ce conte populaire croustillant que toute la France connaît n'est pas provençal, mais languedocien, et même très précisément audois !

Arrivé aux oreilles d'Achille Mir, poète et instituteur de la petite commune de Cucugnan dans les Corbières (eh oui, ce village existe pour de bon !), celui-ci décida de coucher sur papier en occitan l'histoire du "curat de Cucunhan". C'est cependant Daudet qui la rendit célèbre !

... L'abbé Marti en avait assez que ses fidèles n'assistent point à ses messes dominicales et se conduisent de manière impie. Dieu lui donna un tuyau, et un jour en chaire, l'abbé Marti raconta à ses ouailles l'histoire suivante :

Quelques nuits auparavant, il s'était retrouvé aux portes du Paradis ! Saint Pierre lui ouvrit, et il lui demanda, si dans le grand registre des entrées au Ciel, il y avait des cucugnanais. Saint Pierre jeta un oeil dans le grand livre, mais n'y trouva pas une âme. Il envoya le pauvre curé au Purgatoire. Là, il trouverait certainement une grande partie de la population. Mais à sa grande surprise et à son grand désespoir, les pages de Cucugnan dans le grand registre du Purgatoire étaient elles aussi toutes blanches ! Si ses fidèles n'étaient pas au Ciel ni au Purgatoire, il ne pourrait y aller lui-même, il se rendit donc en Enfer. Là, terrifié, il découvrit l'Eloi, le Catarinet, le mendiant, et puis Pascal Doigt de Poix, qui fabriquait son huile avec les olives de Mr Julien, ... il continua la liste des noms de tous les cucugnanais qui passaient leur "autre vie" là-bas en Enfer, à cause de leur "mauvaise vie" sur Terre. Depuis son pupitre, l'abbé Marti indiqua à ses ouailles ébahies qu'il avait pris une grande décision, qu'il la confesserait à tous : le lundi aux anciens, le mardi aux enfants, etc... Les présents devraient en informer la population. Après avoir bien nettoyé l'église, le brave abbé récupéra enfin ses fidèles, pour fêter sa réussite, il organisa une grande procession avec moults cierges et chants, à travers les rues de Cucugnan...

Roman fortifications.

by leics

It's easy to miss the Roman parts of La Cite if you don't know what to look for. The inner walls of La cite date from these times and, from Les Lices (the lists) you can see the evidence in some places. Look for regular rubble stone levels intersected with layers of thin red brick (classic Roman building style). The towers based on Roman building are horseshoe-shaped.

Right in Middle of Town

by ViajesdelMundo about LA ROTONDE

Great example of a French Brasserie, with full selections as well as a 'salad bar'; which is not anything like an American one. Some of the salads are seafood and many others.

There are tables lining the glass wall which is on the sidewalk, for a feel of being outside, even though you are protected inside. And you get the feel of the passersby, as they look at your table and meal, but it is pleasant, as you are separated by the glass.

We only had dinner there, but I noticed that they offered a budget priced special breakfast too.

(the photos were taken from a moving car) Don't miss the CASSEOULET in this area, and it was excellent here! Trevor had steamed clams and they were VERY delicious and as much as he could eat.
