Alamo Car Rental at Carcassonne
Alamo Carcassonne Airport
Carcassonne Airport is found in the Languedoc region of France, and serves the city of Carcassonne and other areas within the Aude Department. It is also well known as the Salvaza Airport, or as the Carcassonne en Pays Cathare Airport, and has the official airport code of CCF. As one of the smaller French airports, Carcassonne handles only around 450,000 passengers per year, but is nonetheless an important gateway for the surrounding area. From the Carcassonne Airport car hire companies, such as Alamo, passengers can rent a car, and explore this region of the country at their own convenience. Alamo provides vehicles of very high quality, and is one of the leading car rental companies for leisure travellers.
The car hire desks of Alamo are found in the arrivals area of the airport building. The airport has a single terminal, and all facilities are easy to find, as it is not very large. Passengers will also not require any other form of transport in order to reach their hire car. Alamo Carcassonne Airport is open from Sunday to Monday between the hours of 08:30 and 18:30, and on Tuesdays from 08:30 to 18:00. From Wednesday to Saturday, Alamo is available from 08:30 to 18:30. Although not open twenty-four hours a day, Alamo is able to meet the majority of arrival flights at the airport. All car rental reservations are recommended to be made in advance, as there is no guarantee that your ideal car will be available from over the rental counters.
Vehicles hired from Alamo are organised into various car groups, and all vehicles are priced and booked according to the categories available. The less expensive cars are small models, found in the Economy category, and are similar to the Peugeot 207 1.4, while larger Vans and SUVs are much more pricy. However, sometimes a Van is the perfect form of transport for groups of travellers, and an SUV can be a superb vehicle to drive. For seven passengers, Alamo offers Vans similar to the Citroen Grand Picasso C4 2.0 and Citroen C8 2.0, and for up to eight passengers, there is the Citroen Jumpy 2.2. Examples of SUVs include the Ford Kuga 2.0, which features split folding rear seats, and the Citroen C-Crosser 2.2, with a GPS unit included in its rental. Both vehicles also use diesel fuel. Always ensure that you know which type of fuel to use in your rented car.
Optional items of equipment are available from the majority of the Carcassonne Airport car rental companies, and are sometimes essential for safe and easy driving in France. Items such as child seats, luggage racks and satellite navigation systems should be requested in advance as supply is limited. However, many of Alamo’s vehicles include a GPS in their price, which could be an excellent option for anyone unfamiliar with the area. Some cars available with GPS are the Citroen C5 2.0, a Standard Wagon with plenty of room for luggage, Audi A4 1.9, Mercedes C200 CDI 2.0 and the Mercedes E250 2.5, which is a Luxury vehicle with a leather interior and cruise control. Alamo hand controls may also be available for disabled drivers, and from Carcassonne Airport, hand controls are free of charge. They should, however, be reserved in advance.
A popular size of vehicle is found in Alamo’s categories of Compact Wagon, Midsize and Standard, as they have room for up to five passengers as well as for several luggage items. The Peugeot 308 1.6 is an example of a Compact Wagon, while the Ford Mondeo 1.6 and Peugeot 3008 1.6 are Midsize vehicles. In the Standard category, the VW Passat 1.8 is an example, featuring power steering, power brakes, power locks and windows and driver and passenger airbags. Many of Alamo’s vehicles also feature air conditioning, folding rear seats and even multi-function steering wheels. Alamo one way hires are an option for customers who are travelling more extensively, and who are perhaps not returning to Carcassonne Airport. One way hires returned within the country of France are usually free of charge.
Alamo has over thirty years of experience in the car rental industry, and after their establishment in 1974, quickly became one of the leading leisure car rental companies in the world. Alamo has always focussed on providing a fun, low-cost, high-value rental experience for family and leisure customers, and has introduced many programs that benefit and promote leisure travel. They were the only company to offer a customized rental agreement the size of an airline ticket, and they revolutionised collision damage waivers with the introduction of the first-ever price and coverage option. Alamo was also the first company to implement real-time booking capabilities on the Internet in 1995. Alamo customers can also benefit from the Quicksilver program, and enjoy a simplified reservation and rental process, counter bypass options and special members-only deals.
