Alamo Car Rental at Brest Lesquin
Alamo Brest Lesquin Airport
Brest Airport is a French airport in the north-western regions of the country, and is officially known as the Brest Bretagne Airport. It is also assigned the airport code of BES. The airport’s location is in the commune of Guipavas, approximately 10.2km, or 6.4 miles northeast of Brest city centre and in the Finistère department. The main airline companies of the airport are Air France, Flybe, Ryanair and EasyJet, and around 900,000 passengers pass through the terminal building each year. Hire cars are available from companies such as Alamo Brest Airport, and Alamo is well known around the world as a leading car rental company for leisure customers. Alamo offers excellent rental rates, and a good selection of quality vehicles.
The current terminal building of Brest Airport was completed in December of 2007, and is a larger construction than the previous building, with a capacity for between 1.4 and 1.8 million passengers per annum. It features lovely large viewing windows, which overlook the runway, two footbridges which connect the boarding zones to medium and larger-sized aircraft, and more space for shops and restaurants, as well as a business centre for conferences and meetings. The Brest Airport car hire companies have their rental counters in the arrival area of the three level terminal building, and are available during various hours of the day and early evening. Alamo is open from Monday to Friday, between the hours of 08:00 and 12:00, and from 13:00 to 18:30, and on Saturdays from 09:00 to18:00. They are closed on Sundays, but an after-hours-return may be possible to arrange.
Alamo was established in 1974, and quickly became a popular car rental company for leisure travellers. Over the years, Alamo helped improve the industry in many ways. They pioneered the concept of Unlimited Free Mileage and revolutionised collision damage waivers, with the first ever price and coverage option for all renters. Alamo also offered three new choices of price and coverage options, tailored to suit the needs of various kinds of customers. In 1995, Alamo was the first company to introduce real-time booking capabilities on the internet, enabling customers to browse and choose vehicles and preferred rental rates, and to find Alamo rental locations. Today, Alamo continues to serve family and leisure travellers with a fun and friendly service, and to provide low-cost, high-value vehicles.
The Brest Airport car rental companies offer their customers a wide range of vehicles for hire, and from Alamo, some of the most affordable cars are found in the Economy category. These cars are similar to the Peugeot 207 1.4, with room for five passengers and two luggage items, and come with some nice features, which include power steering, air conditioning, driver and passenger airbags and folding rear seats. Cars from National are booked by category, rather than by specific make and model. Vehicle categories with smaller cars usually require the customer to be just 21 years of age or older, and to have held a valid drivers license for a year prior to the rental date.
Some of Alamo’s other vehicle categories are Compact Wagon, Midsize, Standard, Fullsize, Fullsize Wagon, Premium Sport, Luxury and Van. Wagons are often chosen by families who need a larger space for their luggage, and other belongings, and can be similar to the Citroen C5 2.0 and the Mercedes C20 CDI 2.0. Standard and Midsize cars including the Ford Mondeo 1.6, Peugeot 3008 1.6 and VW Passat 1.8 are also popular choices for family journeys. Groups of travellers can enjoy extra space in the Citroen Grand Picasso C4 2.0 or Citroen C8 2.0, or even in the Citroen Jumpy 2.2, which has room for eight people, while business professionals in need of a more elegant car can drive the Mercedes E250 2.5 from the Luxury category. There are also SUVs available from National, similar to the Ford Kuga 2.0 and Citroen C-Crosser 2.2.
Brest Airport welcomes the arrival of disabled passengers, and for persons with a lower limb disability capable of driving a vehicle, Alamo hand controls are available. Hand controls operate the brake and accelerator pedals of certain types of automatic vehicles, and may include a steering wheel knob. From Brest Airport, hand controls are free of charge, and should be reserved at least 48 hours prior to your arrival. Alamo one way hires are another option available for customers at Brest Airport. One way hires are convenient for customers leaving from a different airport in France, as the car need not be returned to the same airport from where it was collected. The car may even be returned to an Alamo rental location in another country.
Passengers hiring a car from Alamo, at Brest Airport, will require a major credit card for payment of the rental, and should have an International Driving Permit if their local license is printed in a non-Roman alphabet. All customers of Alamo are also invited to join the Quicksilver membership, and enjoy benefits that could save time and money during the car rental process.
