Car Hire Beauvais Airport
Paris Beauvais Tille Airport is situated about 90km north of the French capital. A hub for the budget airlines Ryanair, Wizzair, BlueAir, and Air Moldova, it is known as the Low-Cost Airport and handles about 4 million passengers annually. Once you collect your rental car at Beauvais Airport, take the A16 Autoroute to Paris. Normandy, Northern France, and Belgium are also reasonably accessible from Beauvais.
The ultimate destination for most people who fly into Beauvais is Paris, but if you have time, it is worth exploring this historic city. The restored cathedral (Cathédrale Saint-Pierre de Beauvais) could be described as one of the boldest undertakings in Gothic architecture, a vaulted building of some 46 metres high internally, composed only of a transept and quire with apse and seven apse-chapels. You will also find several medieval houses, some dating back to the 12th century, in the Place de l'Hotel de Ville and in the streets surrounding the cathedral.
