There's much to explore in Marseille, France's second largest city, and most of this can be done on foot. But once you've exhausted all the city has to offer, a car rental is the perfect way to discover further fantastic destinations on day trips in the Provence Region. Book your car rental holiday with British Airways and you can drive away in your rental car as soon as you arrive in Marseille.
The beautiful natural landscape of the Provence Region is most conveniently travelled by car, so you can see for yourself how the dazzling region inspired artists such as Vincent Van Gogh and Cezanne. Visit the idyllic countryside towns of Arles and Aix de Provence on relaxing day trips from Marseilles with your car rental, or explore the fascinating historic architecture of Avignon, Orange and Glanum.
The Marseille area is famous for its wine, and a car rental grants you easy access to the excellent vineyards at Cotes du Rhone, Cotes de Provence and Bandol. Those travelling to Marseille as the gateway to a range of outdoor activities in the breathtaking French countryside can also visit Alps de Haute Provence with a car rental, taking in horse riding and walking on sunny days or enjoying an Alpine ski holiday on the high quality slopes in the winter.
We offer high quality car rentals at British Airways, in partnership with Avis. All our car rentals include mandatory third party liability insurance*, unlimited mileage, collision damage waiver (excess applies), theft protection (excess applies), taxes and airport surcharges*. If you want to reduce excess payments, you can pay for Super Collision Damage Waiver when you collect your car.
Whatever your reason for travelling to Marseille, get the most out of your holiday by booking your flights, hotels and car rental together from British Airways, saving yourself the time and money involved in arranging each one separately. If you're travelling to Marseille for a ski holiday this winter, choose your ski resort as part of your holiday package and look forward to taking to the slopes in France's magnificent Alpine resorts.
