Largest choice of rental agencies

Cayenne, as the capital, has a larger number of car rental agencies, offering more options in terms of car models, prices and rental conditions.

Close to the international airport

Better access to services and amenities

Cayenne offers easy access to a variety of services and amenities, such as hotels, restaurants, banks and health centers, which can be particularly useful for visitors.

Ideal starting point for exploring French Guiana

Situated on the coast, Cayenne is a strategic starting point for exploring other parts of French Guiana, including beaches, nature reserves and neighboring towns.

Better-developed road infrastructure

Roads and transport infrastructure are generally better developed around Cayenne, making driving and navigating easier for visitors, especially those unfamiliar with the region.

In summary, renting a car in Cayenne offers greater flexibility, choice and accessibility for exploring French Guiana, especially for first-time visitors.

Europcar French Guiana : Your trusted partner in French Guiana

At Europcar Guyane, we strive to provide you with a seamless travel experience. From the moment you arrive at Cayenne-Félix Eboué airport, we provide you with a fleet of quality vehicles, regularly maintained for your safety and comfort.

However, it's important to note that although Cayenne is an ideal base from which to explore the region, the density of traffic and frequent traffic jams in the city center can make driving stressful, even over short distances. Many visitors therefore opt for car rental agencies located on the outskirts of Cayenne.

Our Europcar Guyane agency is strategically located just 10 minutes from Cayenne, accessible via the N1 road. This proximity makes it much easier to pick up your vehicle and start your trip in the best possible conditions.
