Avis car rental location

We must leave an Avis rental car at Avis' downtown Colmar office, 8 Route de Strasbourg, on a Saturday morning in late September. Mappy and Mapquest disagree on the location of this address. One shows it at the airport; the other shows it farther south. In either case, will we be able to get a local bus there to return to the center city? Or is it within 2 or 3 kilometers, so we can walk? Thanks for any help.

According to Mappy, 8 Route de Strasbourg is about 2.5 miles (3.64 km) to Centre Ville, Colmar. If you have luggage, you might prefer a bus or taxi. Check with Avis and see where the nearest bus stop is or ask if they have a shuttle service to your hotel.

You can get directions by typing in the address as your starting point and Centre Ville, Colmar as the destination. You'll get a drop-down box and Centre Ville is your third choice. They will give you written directions and a little map.

I've never had much luck with MapQuest. Your other choice would be and they are also excellent.

Thanks for your help and suggestions. I've also found, by checking Colmar's bus service's Web site, that a bus line runs very near to 8 route de Strasbourg, and that the line operates on Saturday mornings. We won't have any luggage (having arrived and checked in at our hotel the previous night).
