France is blessed with an excellent transport infrastructure and getting to the Dordogne couldn’t be easier!
Once there you’ll find that while trains connect the main centres, rural bus services are quite poor, so by far the best way of getting around is by car. Or if you’re happy to travel less widely, then consider cycling: France is a bike friendly country and the Dordogne-Quercy region relatively flat.
The main transport hubs are Brive-la-Gaillarde, Bergerac and Périgueux. There is an airport at Bergerac and one near Brive (Brive-Souillac). Limoges in the nearby Limousin also has an airport. Brive can be reached by rail from Paris.The main car-rental companies operate from these hubs.

The main international airport is at Bordeaux but there are regional airports at Limoges, Brive and Bergerac which are served by flights from Paris and elsewhere. For cheap car rental from a completely independent car hire company based at Bergerac or Limoges Airport see below.
