Orleans is one of France's true gems. Located just an hour out of Paris, it sits near the beautiful Loire Valley. Among its popular festivals, the week long Jean D'Arc celebration is popular with locals and tourists alike.
The Orleans Gothic Catholic Cathedral is also famous for its association with the French heroine and the stained glass windows portray famous scenes of her story, defending the city and praying at that very Cathedral. The history of Orleans is both enthralling and chilling - the Cathedral is a must visit.
Contemporary Orleans is made of people taking leisurely strolls through the cobblestone streets of the old part of the city, or sipping coffee and enjoying a pastry while street musicians play catchy, joyful tunes on a variety of instruments.
If you can bring yourself to leave Orleans, you will see that one of the best things about it is its location, right near the Loire Valley, famous for wines and cheeses - which is all you can really ask for in a day trip.
The best way to get quickly from one wine and cheese area to another, is by hiring a Thrifty rental car in Orleans. Thrifty Orleans has several locations, which means you'll be able to rent a car and get on the road in no time.
One of the best things about Thrifty is how cheap their rental cars are - you're just paying for what you need and nothing extra. This means less transportation costs eating through your budget and more cheese.
Thrifty hasn't been around quite as long as the Cathedral, but it is a household name in car rental. There are no hidden costs and the only runaround you'll get is a cheap car running you between chocolatiers.
Orleans attracts people from all walks of life, and in many cases hiring a car is the best option for travelling through the region - whether a family road trip, a business trip or just for a wine/cheese day trip - you won't go wrong with Thrifty.
