Car Hire at Gare du Lille Eurostar
Lille-Europe is a railway station in Lille, France, that is used chiefly for high-speed Eurostar and TGV services. It was constructed in 1993 as a through station for trains between the UK, Belgium and the Netherlands, as well as French TGV services, apart from those originating in Paris (which usually terminate at Lille Flandres, 500 metres away). U.K. passengers travelling to popular destinations not served directly by Eurostar can board connections to Disneyland Paris, Charles de Gaulle International Airport, Lyon, and other locations.
When renting a car at Gare du Lille Eurostar, book as far in advance as possible, as this is a busy pick-up location all year round. The local French countryside is beautiful; rent a car with GPS to avoid getting lost. The best scenery is to be found away from the main roads, making a good navigation system indispensable.
Other car rental locations in Lille are Lille International Airport and Lille Flanders Railway Station. Nova Car Hire also arranges car hire collection at the Avignon TGV rail station.
