Although there are several bus companies that cross Corsica, it is very difficult to travel by public transport: there is poor communication, connections are often rare or seasonal, and fares are very high. In short, we strongly advise you to travel by car.

If you arrive in Corsica without your own vehicle, it is essential to rent a car, preferably at the port or at the airport, where you will find a wider choice and offices that are always open to coincide with arrivals.

In fact, moving around by car allows you to have maximum freedom of movement and, above all, to reach the most isolated resorts and beaches. Only in this way will you be absolutely independent and not bound by timetables, fixed routes and various connections.

Car hire companies always offer recent vehicles with few kilometres and, given the small size of the island, unlimited mileage is guaranteed.

Rates clearly vary greatly depending on the season, the type of vehicle and the number of days you need to hire it.

Roads in Corsica

Due to the small size of the island, distances in Corsica are short in terms of kilometres but can prove long and tiring to drive. In fact, the roads tend to be winding, especially inland and poorly paved. Calculate that in some areas, a 100 km journey can take up to 3 or 4 hours.

In any case, we can reassure you that the most touristy areas are well maintained.

Lovers of sporty driving will appreciate the scenic circuits all curves and hairpin bends for an absolutely unforgettable on-the-road holiday! The most winding and difficult roads are some areas of western Cap Corse, in the Calvi-Galeria area and some parts of Ajaccio-Corte.

The Désert des Agriates can be travelled in complete tranquillity except on the unpaved and potholed paths leading to the beaches on the coast, such as the D81 and the 10km to the beaches of Loto and Saleccia; here care must be taken not to damage the car and the paths are only passable, depending on the season and weather conditions, by sturdy vehicles or 4x4s.

Frequently asked questions about car rental in Corsica

Here are some quick answers to the most common doubts about car rental in Corsica.

More and more people are choosing to rent a car to reduce contacts and increase social distancing, avoiding the often crowded public transport.

Car rental companies are committed to higher hygiene standards to minimize the risk of transmitting the virus.

All the safety measures we are accustomed to are taken at the rental desks and the cars are disinfected after each rental, especially the areas most at risk, such as seats, gearboxes, handles and steering wheel.

Undoubtedly yes. During the pandemic, almost all car rental companies in Corsica were forced to reduce their car fleet to reduce operating costs.

When tourism in Corsica has restarted, due to the crisis in raw materials and electronic components, they have not managed to buy back enough cars.

The consequence is that today every company has far fewer cars than in 2019 and cannot cope with the high demand. This leads to higher prices and less availability, especially during the high season.

The advice we give you is therefore to book the car well in advance, both to get the best prices but above all to be sure of having a rental car.

To reserve a car in Corsica a credit card or debit card is sufficient. However, when you go to collect the car, you will need:

  • a credit card in the name of the driver. Debit and ATM cards are not accepted;
  • copy of the reservation;
  • a driving license valid for at least 12 months;
  • an identity document.

The car rental companies in Corsica allow to rent a car to all those who are between 21 and 70 years old. However, there is an additional cost for under 25 and for those over 70.

A car rental in Corsica always includes:

  • theft insurance;
  • limitation of liability for damage to the vehicle;
  • local, road and airport taxes.

Any extras or additional insurance coverage are separate.
