Car rental - Normandy

In May we are traveling to Normandy and staying in Bayeux. Would appreciate input on renting a car in Caen or Bayeux.

I've used many times to rent a car in both Caen and Bayeux. It is easier in Caen since the rental agencies are very close to train station. In Bayeux, you'd need to take a taxi to and from station. It's about a 30 min drive from Caen to Bayeux. is very helpful for routes and distances.

You have choices at the Caen train station. There's a one-shot Charley at a gas station on the northwest periphery of Bayeux.
