Sixt Car Rental Biarritz Airport
Sixt Biarritz Airport
Biarritz Airport is found nearby the towns of Biarritz, Anglet and Bayonne, and is therefore referred to as the Biarritz-Anglet-Bayonne Airport. It has the official code of BIQ, and is commonly known as the Parme Airport as well. The airport handled just under a million passengers in 2010, and mainly serves domestic locations; however, it is one of the international France airports. The most convenient way to travel from the airport is by rented car, from one of the Biarritz Airport car hire companies, such as Sixt. Many passengers choose the services of Sixt because they are a worldwide company known for offering excellent car rental rates and good customer assistance.
Sixt Biarritz Airport is open from Monday to Friday, between the hours of 08:00 and 20:00, and on Saturdays from 08:00 to 17:00. The airport consists of a single terminal building, with the car hire companies found in the arrivals hall, nearby to the area from where baggage is collected. Passengers will also find further car hire buildings nearby the car parking areas, just outside of the terminal building. Biarritz Airport is not a large French airport, but considered to be of a reasonable size, and is therefore well equipped with a variety of facilities for its passengers. There are several shops and restaurants available, banking facilities and meeting rooms for corporate passengers.
Vehicles hired from Sixt should be returned to the same parking area at Biarritz Airport as from where they were collected, and vehicle returns are possible twenty-four hours a day. Customers who require an out of office hour’s return should confirm the details with Sixt. Vehicles may also be returned to a different rental location, if a Sixt one way hire is organised. This service allows vehicles to be driven and returned to any location within the country of France, or even within neighbouring countries, such as Spain, which is only a few kilometres from Biarritz. From the Biarritz Airport, one way hires are free of charge, unless returned to a different country.
Sixt cars are available in all shapes and sizes, and are hired by category. For just two passengers, the Smart For Two can be hired, and for four passengers, the Fiat 500, Renault Twingo, Ford Fiesta, Opel Corsa, VW Polo or Seat Ibiza are ideal. These are the smaller cars available from Sixt, and can be hired by anyone 21 years of age or older, provided that they are able to show a valid drivers license that has been held in their country of residence for a minimum period of a year prior to the rental date. Smaller cars are the most affordable to rent, as they come with the lowest rental rates, and are also fuel efficient, which means that you will spend less on petrol. However, they don’t offer much room for luggage, and families may need to look for something a little larger.
Families often choose estate cars from Sixt, as they offer more interior room and some space for luggage. Examples include the Peugeot 308 Break, Renault Megane Estate, Opel Insignia Sports Tourer, VW Passat Variant and Volvo V50 Break. These family cars are suitable for anyone 23 years of age or older, and the renter will need to have held his license for a minimum period of two years. Even larger cars can be hired by persons within the same age category, such as the Ford S-Max, Ford Galaxy, VW Sharan and Peugeot 807, for seven passengers, but the Renault Traffic ideal for nine travellers requires its driver to be at least 25 years of age. Convertibles and more prestigious vehicle models from Sixt can only be rented by persons 28 years of age or older, and include the Mercedes-Benz SLK, BMW Serie 3 Cabriolet, Porsche Panamera, Volvo XC60 and the Mercedes-Benz Classe M.
The Biarritz Airport car rental companies offer services for disabled customers and renters as well, which include the use of hand controls, and free additional drivers for primary renters unable to drive due to disability. Sixt hand controls are available free of charge, and are a device which operates the brake and accelerator pedals of an automatic vehicle. It may also include a steering wheel knob for additional assistance. At Biarritz Airport, hand controls are recommended to be reserved in advance, as they will need to be fitted to the correct vehicle prior to your arrival.
Sixt customers can enjoy a range of exclusive benefits if they apply for the Sixt Express Card, Sixt Ladies Card or Sixt Gold Card. The Express Card is for all customers, while the Ladies Card allows ladies to benefit from their partner’s corporate rental rates. The Gold Card has additional benefits, and is only for more frequent renters, i.e. those who have rented a car three or more times from Sixt. Customers with a Sixt Card are able to bypass the rental counters by using the Sixt Quick-Check-In terminals, if they have an existing reservation, and make speedier reservations by using the Sixt Mobile-Check-In and Sixt Online-Check-In services. The Express Card is free to acquire, and comes with many other benefits as well.
