Auto Europa Brest Lesquin Airport

Brest Airport is one of the France Airports which are important for tourism and development for the area in which it is situated, and handles around 900,000 passengers per annum. It serves the city of Brest, along the country’s north-western coastline, as well as many other areas within the Finistère department. The airport was formerly known as the Brest-Guipavas Airport, due to its location in the commune of Guipavas, but is now officially the Brest Bretagne Airport, and is recognised by its code of BES. For transport, there are buses and taxis, but a rented car from Auto Europa Brest Airport is a much more convenient option. Auto Europa offers very reasonable car rental rates, and is known as a leader in the industry.

Brest Airport welcomes its passengers with a brand new terminal building which took four years to construct, and was finally completed at the end of 2007. The building has three levels, with separate arrival and departure areas, and is capable of handling between 1.4 and 1.9 million passengers every year. Some of the new features include an immense glass bay window that overlooks the runway, additional space for conference facilities and a larger area for restaurants and retail outlets. There are also two footbridges that connect the boarding zones to the medium and larger sized aircrafts. Auto Europa, as well as all the other Brest Airport car hire companies, can be found in the arrival area of the airport, and is open at the following times:  Monday to Friday – 08:00 to 13:00, 13:30 to 18:45 and from 19:45 to 23:00, and on Saturday from 08:00 to 14:30. Auto Europa at Brest Airport is closed on Sundays.

Auto Europa is referred to as the leading provider of car rental services at over 8,000 locations in 130 countries, and they have been in existence since 1954. There are therefore Auto Europa offices at all major European airports. Passengers arriving at Brest Airport will find their car rental rates to be reasonable, and can select a quote which is all-inclusive or basic. A basic rate from Auto Europa covers the costs of mandatory public liability insurance, fire insurance and VAT, while the all-inclusive rate covers optional collision damage waiver, optional theft protection, VAT and the other insurances mentioned for the basic rate. Customers renting a vehicle are recommended to arrange sufficient insurance for their vehicle, and it is best to reserve a car in advance, in order to secure the best rental rates.

Smaller cars for hire from the Brest Airport car rental companies usually come with cheaper rental rates, and from Auto Europa, are similar to the Volkswagen Golf, with room for four passengers and a couple of luggage items. Larger vehicles are generally more expensive, but are a better option if you need more space within your vehicle.

The license must have been held in the renter’s country of residence for at least a year prior to the rental date. However, although the minimum age is 21, drivers aged 21 to 24 will pay for young drivers insurance, which is an extra few Euros added to each day of car hire for each underage driver listed on the contract, up until a maximum of ten rental days. Furthermore, a major credit card, for example, American Express, Diners Club, Mastercard or Visa will be required for payment, as cash and debit cards are not accepted.
