Sixt Bordeaux Mérignac Airport

Bordeaux Airport is an international establishment which consists of a single, multi-level terminal building. This terminal is divided into Hall A and Hall B, which are connected by a covered walkway. All the car hire counters, including those of Sixt, are located in the Arrivals area. Sixt offers quality vehicles to hire, along with other car rental companies at the airport, which include Hertz, Europcar, Avis, National, Budget and Alamo.

Sixt is open between the hours of 07:15 and 23:00, from Monday to Friday, and on Saturdays between 08:00 and 21:30. On Sundays they are open from 09:00 to 22:30, and at the same times on bank holidays. At their Bordeaux Airport location, it is possible to return your vehicle out of office hours. Should this service be required, it is best to find out all the details from Sixt at this location.

Sixt offers their customers a range of vehicles in a variety of car categories. When renting a vehicle, usually a car category is chosen, rather than a specific make and model. Smaller compact vehicles such as the Smart Cabrio can be rented from Sixt, and these cars are ideal for two people. They can only store two small items of luggage. Cars that are suitable for four passengers include the Renault Twingo, Ford Fiesta, Ford Fusion, Renault Clio and VW Polo. These vehicles have more space for luggage, and include a navigation system if there is one available. They are also vehicles with a manual transmission.

Certain cars hired by Sixt always include a satellite navigation system. A GPS unit is truly a wonderful piece of equipment to take with you on your journey, especially if you are unfamiliar with the area. They also usually have various language options, relevant traffic information in real time, and thousands of pre-programmed points of interest, such as hotels, restaurants, pharmacies, golf courses, gas stations etc. Example vehicles in the categories that have navigation systems are the Mercedes-Benz Classe E Aut, BMW 520 Aut., BMW Series 5 and Mercedes-Benz CLK Coupé.
