We have rented a houseboat on the canal du midi in July, and are struggling with the logistics of getting to/from Bram, where we'll be starting and finishing. Here are the transportation logistics we're struggling with:
1. We will be making our way to Bram from Paris, and we've been told that the best to do that is to take the train to Toulouse and a rather expensive (140 euros) taxi ride from there to Bram. Does anyone know of any other options?
2. After our houseboat trip, we will be heading to Sarlat, then ultimately returning home from Toulouse. Would it make sense to rent a car somewhere near Bram (not sure where the closest car rental station is - help?) and return the car at the airport in Toulouse? Or would it be cheaper to return to Toulouse and get a round trip car rental at the Toulouse airport?
3. What car rental websites have people used?
Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
