Europcar Car Rental at Carcassonne
Europcar Carcassonne Airport
Carcassonne Airport is one of the smaller France airports, and is also one of the airports that serve the southern Languedoc region of the country. This airport in the Aude department of the country is located just 3km, or 2 miles from the city of Carcassonne, and is commonly referred to as the Salvaza Airport, or as the Carcassonne en Pays Cathare Airport. It is also nearby areas such as Villemoustaussou, Cazilhac, Pennautier and Caux-et-Sauzens. The Carcassonne Airport car hire companies, including Europcar, are available for the car rental needs of all arriving passengers, and they offer an excellent selection of vehicles for hire. Europcar is one of the most popular choices, and is also found at the majority of French airports.
From the baggage reclaim area of the airport’s single terminal building, there are signs indicating the direction of the car hire desks, and rented cars of the companies are parked just outside the terminal building. Vehicles from Europcar can be hired directly over the rental counters, or in advance, from various online sources. All other items of equipment required for your journey should be requested in advance. These items may include a satellite navigation system, luggage racks or child seats for younger family members. For driving in unfamiliar territory, a GPS is a wonderful option, and those offered by the car hire companies are usually of very high quality. They can provide turn-by-turn directions to any destination, they feature colour touch screens and come pre-programmed with a list of points of interest. However, while a GPS is perhaps not an essential item to hire, a child seat will be required, as road rules in France stipulate that all passengers in a vehicle should wear seatbelts.
Europcar Carcassonne Airport offers the Renault Twingo as a smaller car for hire, as well as the Peugeot 207 and Volkswagen Polo in the Economy category. Smaller cars, although lacking large space for luggage, are an excellent option for those seeking lower rental rates. They are also fuel efficient, and deemed as eco-friendly. Most of Europcar’s vehicles have air conditioning, and are hired with unlimited mileage as well. Customers in need of something a little larger can hire the Renault Laguna from the Standard category, the Renault Scenic or Renault Grand Scenic from the Intermediate category or even the Renault Espace as a Fullsize vehicle, with room for up to seven passengers. Keep in mind however, that larger vehicles have a low availability, and their bookings will need to be confirmed by Europcar within 48 hours of the reservation request.
From Carcassonne Airport, automatic cars can be hired, similar to the Mercedes Classe A, Peugeot 3008 and Volkswagen Touran, while Luxury and Specialty cars include the Audi A4 and the Mercedes Vito, which is a luxury van able to accommodate up to nine passengers. Quotes for all vehicles from Europcar include the licenses and fees applicable to the vehicle or rental location, the airport surcharges and VAT. Customers may also choose to include certain vehicle insurances in their quotes. Anyone just eighteen years of age or older are able to rent a car from Europcar, provided that they have a valid drivers license. Younger drivers, under the age of 25, will however, pay higher rental rates, for additional young drivers insurance. The primary renter of the vehicle will need a major credit card as well, and those generally accepted by all Carcassonne Airport car rental companies are American Express, Diners Club, Eurocard, MasterCard and Visa.
Further options from Europcar include hand controls for disabled drivers and one way hires. Europcar hand controls are used by persons with a lower limb disability, and are available on certain types of automatic vehicles. The device is also free of charge. From Carcassonne Airport, hand controls should be reserved at least 48 hours prior to your arrival, as they will need to be fitted to the vehicle. As for Europcar one way hires, most vehicles are allowed to be driven to other European countries, or simply returned to any other Europcar rental location within the country of France, if it is a more suitable option for your rental from Carcassonne Airport. One way hires are therefore most convenient for anyone planning a more extensive journey. The service is also usually free of charge if the vehicle is delivered to another French location.
