Europcar Car Rental Beziers Airport
Europcar Beziers Airport
Béziers Airport is a smaller French airport serving the south-eastern coastal holiday resorts of the country, including Cap d’Agde and the area of the Canal du Midi. It is situated only a few kilometres from the large town of Béziers, and is officially referred to as the Béziers Cap d’Agde Airport. It is also nearby Vias, and was previously known as the Béziers-Vias Airport. Just over 100,000 passengers pass through the airport each year, and although small, it is well equipped with various facilities, including car hire companies such as Europcar Béziers Airport. Europcar is one of the leading car rental companies in the world, in particular for leisure travel, and present at just about every airport in France.
Béziers Airport consists of a single terminal building, with all facilities on one level. There is a departures area with four check-in desks and two boarding lounges and an arrival area with baggage reclaim facilities. Nearby the arrival area are the Béziers Airport car hire companies, including Europcar. Although they are not open at all hours throughout the day and night, such as those at larger airports, they are available to meet each arrival flight of the airport, and there are letter boxes to which keys can be returned during out-of-office hours. Vehicles from Europcar are recommended to be reserved in advance, and all additional items of equipment should be requested in advance as well.
Customers hiring a vehicle from Europcar can rent a satellite navigation system for their journey, should they be unfamiliar with the Languedoc Roussillon region, or child seats if they are travelling with young children or a baby. The GPS units offered by the majority of car hire companies are technologically advanced pieces of equipment, with turn-by-turn directions in voice or visual mode, colour touch screens, easy-to-use interfaces and clear and accurate visuals. A choice of languages is available, and the system is pre-programmed with points of interest for the area. When arranging your vehicle from Europcar online, simply choose the option ‘add extras’, and select the ‘Navigational System (NVS)’. There are also other items available for selection such as an additional driver, cover for young drivers and a ‘Serenity Pack’ insurance option.
All drivers at Europcar should be at least 18 years of age, and have a valid drivers license. The young drivers fee is mandatory for all under the age of 25. Europcar will accept most driving licenses printed in English, but it is best to confirm beforehand whether your rental will require an International Driving Permit. The primary renter is also required to have a major credit card in his/her name, such as American Express, Diners Club, Mastercard, Eurocard or Visa, for payments.
The Béziers Airport car rental companies offer a wide range of vehicles for hire, which are mostly divided into various car categories. Customers will therefore select a car category, rather than a vehicle by its specific make and model. The following vehicles mentioned are examples of Europcar’s vehicles in each category. Customers may or may not receive the example vehicle for their rental, but will enjoy a car very similar in size and characteristics. The Renault Twingo comes with the cheapest car rental rates, and is found in Europcar’s Mini category. It is the smallest car available, but can seat up to four passengers. Economy category vehicles are also popular, and are considered eco-friendly and fuel efficient. They include the Peugeot 207 and Volkswagen Polo with a diesel engine. Before leaving Béziers Airport always confirm which type of fuel to use for your rented car.
Alternative vehicle categories offered by Europcar include Compact (Renault Megane), Intermediate (Alfa Romeo Giulietta and Renault Grand Scenic) and Standard (Renault Laguna). The larger cars for hire may be subject to low availability, and their bookings will be confirmed within 48 hours of their request, by email. A more prestigious vehicle available from Béziers Airport is the Mercedes Classe C, while a larger van is the Fullsize Renault Espace, with room for seven passengers. All vehicles can be arranged as Europcar one way hires, by customers who are not returning to Béziers Airport. One way hires are usually free of charge if returned within the country of France, and more expensive if delivered to a different country.
This airport, similar to most France airports, is fully equipped to welcome disabled passengers, with pavement ramps, adapted toilet facilities and dedicated car parking spaces. Additional help can also be arranged with the airline companies that serve the airport. For those in need of car hire, Europcar hand controls are an option for a disabled driver with a lower limb disability, as the device operates the brake and accelerator pedals of an automatic vehicle. It does not control other functions, such as the car’s lights, windshield wipers or blinkers. From Béziers Airport, hand controls should be reserved in advance, and are available free of charge.
Passengers of Béziers Airport can contact Europcar for all their car hire enquiries.
