Europcar Car Rental at Brest Lesquin
Europcar Brest Lesquin Airport
Brest Airport is a public airport handling both domestic and international flights, and is officially referred to as the Brest Bretagne Airport, rather than by its former name of the Brest-Guipavas Airport. The airport is found just 10.2km, or 6.4 miles of Brest city centre, in the commune of Guipavas, and in the Finistère department of France. This French airport handles around 900,000 passengers per annum, but has the capacity for up to 1.8 million passengers. It is extremely well equipped with various facilities, and arriving passengers have a number of transport options available. However, although buses and taxis serve the airport, many passengers choose to rent a car, from companies such as Europcar Brest Airport. Europcar is a favourite amongst many airport travellers for their low rental rates, friendly customer service and high quality hire cars.
The Brest Airport car hire companies all have conveniently located rental offices within the airport terminal building, and cars can be directly hired from Europcar, over the rental counter. However, hired cars can often be in high demand, especially during the busier season at the airport, and therefore it is recommended to make an online advanced reservation. Europcar has a website from where cars for hire can be chosen, and many other websites also support Europcar vehicle reservations. Online, customers can find out all details regarding Europcar’s services, their car rental rates and all aspects regarding their rental terms and conditions. At Brest Airport, Europcar is open to meet the majority of arrival flights.
Europcar offers all their vehicles with quotes that include the licenses and fees applicable to the rental, the airport surcharge and VAT. Customers may also include the price of insurance for their vehicles. Many of Europcar’s vehicles are eco-friendly, and the Renault Twingo is an example of one of the smallest cars available. It has three doors, air conditioning, a manual transmission and room for four passengers. This car, amongst others similar, is found in the Mini category. Economy cars are another very popular group of vehicles for hire, and they are fuel efficient and friendly towards the environment as well. The Peugeot 207 and Volkswagen Polo are examples of Economy vehicles. The Polo runs on diesel, and customers renting a car should always confirm which type of fuel to use for their vehicle, as the wrong type used could lead to additional costs of having the engine cleaned.
Intermediate and Standard cars are slightly larger, and often chosen by families. They are similar to the Alfa Romeo Giulietta, Renault Laguna and Renault Grand Scenic. Larger cars such as the Scenic, or specialty and luxury cars, like the Audi A6, Audi Q5 Auto, Mercedes E350 Cabriolet and the Mercedes Vito for nine passengers have a low availability, which means that their bookings will need to be confirmed by Europcar within 48 hours of the request. All vehicles hired by Europcar have a minimum age requirement of just 18 years of age, however, all primary renters and additional drivers under the age of 25 will pay ‘young driver fees’, which is a small amount applicable to each day of car hire. This is a standard procedure for the majority of Brest Airport car rental companies.
The primary renter will also need a major credit card in his/her name for payment of the rental period. Customers of Europcar have various options available when choosing their vehicle category, such as the rental of child seats, satellite navigation systems and luggage racks. Online, from Europcar’s website, simply select ‘add extras’ to find out all the options available, and their prices. Free of charge however, are Europcar hand controls for disabled drivers, and from Brest Airport, hand controls are a device used by persons with a lower limb disability. The equipment should always be booked in advance, at least 48 hours prior to your arrival.
Europcar one way hires are possible for customers who do not plan to return to Brest Airport, and who would like to return their vehicle to a different Europcar rental location. The car may be driven anywhere in the country of France, and may even be taken to another country, such as Spain or Italy. Most rented cars may also be driven in the United Kingdom, and on the nearby islands, provided that they are returned to the mainland. It is best to confirm with Europcar if the vehicle is permitted to travel on a ferry, and to which countries it may be taken as well. From Brest Airport, one way hires returned within France will usually be free of charge.
