Beziers Airport Taxis (BZR)

Béziers is located in the heart of the Languedoc Roussillon region of France, and is an airport that serves the town of Béziers, as well as the Hérault department of the country. It lies towards the southern coastline of France, just 11.5km, or 6.2 miles from Béziers, and is a small airport, with a little over 100,000 passengers per annum. The airport’s official name is the Béziers Cap d’Agde Airport, due to its close location to this holiday resort area, and it has the airport code of BZR. Béziers taxis are available for the transport of arriving and departing passengers, and offer their services at reasonable prices. However, taxis are always more expensive than the available bus services.

The Béziers Airport taxis are found directly outside the single terminal building of the airport, and are easy to find once you have collected your baggage items from the arrival area. They are in a taxi rank in front of the terminal, and are available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. An advanced reservation is therefore not essential. However, should there be no taxis at the rank, the airport information desk will call one for you. The information desk is open during the following times: Monday – 07:30 to 20:30, Tuesday – 08:00 to 17:00, Wednesday – 12:00 to 20:00, Thursday – 10:00 to 17:00, Friday – 07:30 to 20:00, Saturday – 08:00 to 14:00 and on Sundays, from 12:00 to 20:00. The airport can also be sent an email at aeroport@beziers.cci.fr, or contacted at 04 67 809 909.

Passengers using taxi services at French airports should ensure that they are using a reputable company, which is licensed to provide transport from airport locations. A licensed company will provide cars in good condition and will ensure that their drivers provide top-quality customer services. Before a driver is employed, he/she will need to pass various trainings and tests, which include first aid training, and will therefore be capable of providing safe transport services. He/she will also undergo a medical test, will have a valid license to drive a light vehicle and will have an unblemished police record. By using a reputable taxi company, you can expect to receive excellent service, and to arrive safely at your next destination. The following is a list of some of the Béziers taxi companies available, and their telephone numbers.

From Béziers Airport, taxis will be equipped with a meter, which records the length of the journey you travel. The taxi fare is therefore calculated according to the number of kilometres travelled. The rate charged per kilometre will depend on the time of day, the day of the week you require the service and the final destination of the journey. Taxis are generally cheaper from Monday to Saturday between the hours of 07:00 and 19:00, and a little more expensive at night, on Sundays and on public holidays. Taxis also offer different rates for single and round-trip services. A single journey is when the taxi will return empty after dropping you off at your residence, hotel or business location, whereas a roundtrip journey will take you back to, for example, the airport.

In addition to the metered taxi charges, there is a flat minimum charge as soon as the metre is activated, airport surcharges for journeys commencing at the airport may be applicable, and charges can be made for luggage, animals and more than four adults in a taxi vehicle. The fare for your journey should always be discussed with the driver before leaving the airport, and there should also be a list of the charges displayed somewhere within the taxi. The taxi drivers at airports are usually more than willing to explain their charges, or passengers can find out further details from the information desk at the airport.

The terminal building of Béziers Airport is fully accessible to disabled passengers, with suitable toilet facilities, pavement ramps, lowered public telephones and dedicated car parking spaces, and it may be possible to hire a taxi which is especially equipped for the transport of a disabled person. Special taxi services are recommended to be booked in advance. Passengers who require a larger vehicle may need to organise a private transfer from the airport. There are several private transfer companies that operate from all French Airports, and they offer a variety of vehicle options, from more elegant vehicles to minivans for groups of travellers. Their prices can be similar to those of a taxi, but this will mostly depend on the number of passengers. Private transfers should be reserved in advance.   

Although more expensive than local bus services, Béziers taxis are a convenient form of transport, and can travel to any nearby destination. Taxis are also often preferred because they are a direct service, taking passengers to the doorstep of their hotel or place of business. Contact one of the taxi companies for further enquiries.
