Van Road Trip in Toulouse: Discover the Pink City and Its Surroundings

Experience a road trip in complete freedom with a rental van from our Castelmaurou agency, near Toulouse. A unique experience awaits you on board, discovering the Pink City and its magnificent region.

Why Choose Van Rental in Toulouse?

For those who love travel and a change of scenery, Toulouse is a prime choice. Between the Place du Capitole, the Saint-Sernin Basilica, the banks of the Canal du Midi and the Garonne, you will be constantly surprised and captivated by the beauty of the city.


Day 1: Welcome to Toulouse

Your custom van road trip begins at our Castelmaurou agency, about twenty minutes from Toulouse-Blagnac airport. On-site, our rental expert team explains everything you need to know about operating your vehicle: precautions, onboard safety, return formalities, etc.

Next? Set off on a several-day journey to discover the southwest of France. First, Toulouse, with visits to the city's emblematic monuments and districts: the Jacobins Church, the Jacobins Convent, the Capitole (the city hall of Toulouse). A detour to distant and unexpected lands is even within your reach with the Cité de l'Espace.

Day 2: Heading to the Surroundings

For a dive into the culture of the southwest of France during your custom van road trip, we first recommend Albi. Its fabulous Sainte-Cécile Cathedral is a must-see, being the largest brick cathedral in the world. To discover the works of one of the local sons, also visit the Toulouse-Lautrec Museum.

Then, Castres, further south: it’s the other pink city of the region. Art lovers will be delighted, with the exceptional collection of the Goya Museum, dedicated to the Spanish painter. Lovers of hiking and wild nature too, with the Sidobre, a set of geological formations that are truly worth the detour.

Day 3: Discovering the Gers

After the Haute-Garonne, another department clearly deserves your attention during your van road trip: the Gers. Head to Auch and its impressive cathedral, then Lectoure and its fortifications offering a breathtaking view of the region. One of the pleasures of holidays is obviously discovering local culinary specialties. In the Gers, between foie gras, Gersois cassoulet, and apple croustade (also called Pastis Gascon), you will not run out of ideas.

Day 4: Return to Toulouse

Before heading back to Toulouse, we recommend a detour through Tarn and Garonne and the city of Montauban. It houses a museum that particularly pleases children, (the real ones and those who remained so): the toy museum.

Finally, the moment has come for the return to the agency. To conclude your road trip on the roads of the southwest in style, as for a rental, your van must be returned clean and emptied of its wastewater. We also ask that you be there an hour before the agency closes.

Tips for a Successful Van Road Trip

Before setting off to conquer Toulouse and its region aboard your rental van, make a point with your passengers about the type of trip you want to undertake. What options seem essential to you? With or without sanitation? Manual or automatic transmission...
