Avis Biarritz Airport

Biarritz Airport is located approximately 5km, or 3 miles from the large town of Biarritz, and is also very nearby Anglet and Bayonne, in the south-western region of France. It is an airport of average size, with around a million passengers per year, and although international, the majority of its flights are to domestic locations. The airport is commonly referred to as the Parme Airport, or as the Biarritz-Anglet-Bayonne Airport, and has the official code of BIQ. Several companies, including Avis Biarritz Airport, offer car rental at the airport and Avis is one of the more popular choices amongst many passengers, for their low rental rates and friendly customer service.

The airport of Biarritz falls under the two French departments of Landes and Pyrénées-Atlantiques, and is a modern establishment with all its facilities housed in one terminal building. Arriving passengers will find the car hire companies in the arrival hall, and further car hire buildings nearby the car parking area of the airport. Cars are available directly from the rental counters of Avis, or can be booked in advance, over the phone or internet. At this rental location, Avis is open from Monday to Friday, between the hours of 08:00 and 22:00, on Saturdays from 08:00 to 20:00 and on Sundays from 10:00 to 22:00. The airport is open on weekdays from 5:30 to 23:00, on Saturdays from 05:30 to 22:30 and on Sundays from 06:00 to 23:00. Avis is therefore able to meet passengers on the majority of flights that land at Biarritz Airport.

The Biarritz Airport car rental companies all differ in terms of their rental procedures and policies, and primary renters should therefore ensure that they meet the minimum requirements set by Avis in order to rent a vehicle. Avis’ terms and conditions are quite simple to follow, and are listed in more detail on their website. In general, the primary renter will need to be at least 21 years of age for all car groups, except for the following, where the minimum age is 25:  E (Fullsize), F (Standard), G (Convertible), M, N and O (Vans). A young driver fee will also be applicable to all under the age of 25, and this is an additional amount to be paid per day of car hire, up until a maximum of ten rental days. Debit cards are not accepted by the car hire companies of Biarritz Airport, therefore, customers of Avis will need a major credit card, such as American Express, Diners Club, MasterCard/Eurocard or Visa.

Avis one way hires collected from Biarritz Airport may be delivered to a different rental location, upon expiration of the contract. This option is convenient for customers who will be leaving France from another airport location. From Biarritz Airport, one way hires are not usually more expensive, provided that they are returned to an Avis rental location within the same country. However, cross-border rentals are allowed to the majority of European countries, apart from Greece, Turkey, Eastern Europe, Commonwealth of Independent States and Baltic States. Avis vehicles may be driven to Spain, as the border of this country is just 11 miles from Biarritz. Vehicles may also be taken to the United Kingdom and to the islands of Corsica and Sardinia, as long as they are returned to the mainland.

Besides an excellent choice of vehicles from Avis, customers may also choose a variety of optional items of equipment to hire for their journey, which include child seats, satellite navigation systems, luggage racks and Avis hand controls for disabled drivers. For passengers arriving at Biarritz Airport, hand controls are available free of charge, but the other items mentioned will cost a small amount extra per day of hire. Always specify the age of your child (children) so that Avis can provide a seat of the correct size for your vehicle.

Cars for hire from the majority of Biarritz Airport car hire companies, including Avis, are divided into various car categories, and customers will therefore book their vehicle accordingly, rather than choose a specific make and model. Subcompact cars are the smallest models available from Avis, and are similar to the Renault Twingo, while those found in the Economy category are also popular choices, as they are light on fuel and easy to drive. Examples of Economy cars are the Opel Corsa and Citroen C3. Compact cars, such as the Peugeot 308 and BMW Series 1 can also be reasonably priced and are slightly larger than Economy category vehicles, seating up to five passengers.

A variety of larger sized vehicles are available from Avis as well, and are found in the Intermediate, Standard, Intermediate Van, Fullsize Van and Van categories. The Citroen C5 is an example of a larger sedan, the Opel Zafira and Renault Espace has room for seven passengers and the Renault Traffic Combi is ideal for groups of travellers, as it can accommodate up to nine passengers. There are also more elegant vehicles for hire in the Luxury and Premium categories at Avis, which include the BMW Series 3 and Mercedes Classe E. All Avis vehicles are air conditioned, and in good condition.
