Europcar is one of these companies, and many passengers choose Europcar for their competitive car hire rates.

Europcar Biarritz Airport offers a wide range of vehicles for hire, all of which are only of the latest models, and on average, no older than six months. They are therefore in excellent condition, and customers can expect to have no mechanical problems with their hired car. However, should a breakdown occur, Europcar’s free twenty-four hour emergency assistance will be able to help, and another vehicle will be provided if required. Customers of Europcar enjoy all-inclusive rental rates, which cover the cost of licenses and fees associated with the vehicle or rental location, the mandatory surcharge which is applicable to all rentals commending from airports and VAT.

Smaller cars from Europcar have a manual transmission, and are similar to the Renault Twingo, Peugeot 207 and Volkswagen Polo, which is also a vehicle that uses diesel. Customers must use the correct type of fuel for their rented cars; otherwise, additional costs for having the engine cleaned could be included in their rental agreement. Smaller vehicle models come with the lowest rental rates, and are fuel efficient, which also helps to save money. Cars with an automatic transmission are used for disabled drivers who have requested the use of hand controls. Europcar hand controls are ideal for individuals with a lower limb disability, and are available free of charge. However, from Biarritz Airport, hand controls should be reserved in advance, as they will need to be fitted for the renter before his/her arrival.
The Renault Megane and Renault Laguna are larger sedan models suitable for up to five passengers, and the Renault Espace has a capacity for seven passengers. Ideal family cars also include the Renault Scenic, Peugeot Partner and Mercedes Classe C, which is a Premium vehicle. Groups of travellers can hire the Mercedes Vito, with nine places, but this car should be reserved in advance, as it is subject to low availability, and its booking will be confirmed by Europcar within 48 hours of the request. Europcar one way hires are available for the majority of vehicle categories, and are convenient for customers who plan to travel more extensively, as they allow the vehicle to be returned to a different rental location.
