Hertz Car Rental at Carcassonne
Hertz Carcassonne Airport
Carcassonne Airport is located in the southern Languedoc region of France, and is also commonly referred to as the Salvaza Airport, or as the Carcassonne en Pays Cathare Airport. It handles just over 450,000 passengers per year, on commercial national flights as well as international flights. Ryanair is the main airline carrier for the airport, offering flights to five countries, including Belgium, England, Ireland, Scotland and Portugal. Transport for arriving passengers is offered by bus and taxi; however, many prefer to rent a car, from one of the Carcassonne Airport car hire companies. Hertz is one of the main providers of car rental services at the airport, and many passengers choose Hertz for their reasonable rental rates and wide range of hire cars.
Aéroport de Carcassonne en Pays Cathare, with the official airport code of CCF, has a single terminal building that is well equipped to meet the needs of its passengers. There are facilities such as restaurants and shops, meeting rooms and banking services, as well as payphones, Wi-Fi connections and a VIP lounge. After passengers have collected their baggage, they can move through to the main airport area, and follow the signs to the car rental desks. Hertz Carcassonne Airport is open during the following hours: Monday to Friday – 09:00 to 18:00, Saturday – 09:00 to 12:30 and from 14:00 to 18:00, and on Sundays, from 09:00 to 18:00. Hertz car rentals are recommended to be booked in advance, and this is most easily achieved online.
At this Hertz rental location, customers can hire child seats for their younger family members and the Hertz NeverLost, In-Car Navigation System. A GPS unit is an excellent option for all who are unfamiliar with the Languedoc region of France, and the Hertz navigation system offers drivers some wonderful features. It has several different languages from which to choose, a colour touch screen, clear and accurate visuals (even in direct sunlight) and turn-by-turn directions are available in voice or visual mode. Other features include the Route Method, which will show the quickest or easiest route to any destination, and the Instant Locate function, which shows your exact position at any time. The device even comes pre-programmed with thousands of points of interest, and a database of all the Hertz return locations within Europe. Although a few extra Euros, the Hertz navigation system could be an essential part of your journey.
The Carcassonne Airport car rental companies take good care of all their customers, including those with disabilities, as most offer hand controls and other services for their assistance. Hertz hand controls operate the brake and accelerator pedals of certain kinds of vehicles (automatic), and may include a steering wheel knob. The device is therefore suitable for persons with a lower limb disability. Other services include a free additional driver for persons who are unable to drive due to disability, but whom would still like to be the primary renter of the vehicle. From Carcassonne Airport, hand controls should always be reserved in advance, as they will need to be fitted to the correct vehicle prior to your arrival.
Another useful service used by many customers is the Hertz Rent It Here and Leave It There option, or otherwise referred to as a Hertz one way hire. This option allows customers to collect their vehicle from one location, but then return it to another. Hire cars can be taken to all destinations within France, or even to other European countries, however, vehicles driven in the United Kingdom should be returned to the mainland, but not necessarily to Carcassonne Airport. One way hires are available for the majority of vehicle categories, and may not incur additional charges if the vehicle is returned to a location within France.
Hertz offers vehicles that can be more specifically hired by their makes and models, rather than just by vehicle category. In the Hertz Green Collection, which contains vehicles that are environmentally friendly and fuel efficient, the VW Polo, Opel Corsa and Renault Megane Clio SW are available, while in the Fun Collection, there are vehicles of a more interesting variety. They include the Smart For Two, Fiat 500, Mini Cooper, Alfa Romeo Giulietta and the BMW Series 1 Convertible. The Prestige Collection is also available, with cars such as the Volvo XC60, Audi Q5, Mercedes CLS 250 and the Mercedes Viano, with room for up to nine passengers and a GPS unit included in its rental.
Standard cars from Hertz include the Chevrolet Spark, Opel Corsa, Renault Megane, Opel Astra, Ford C-Max and the Opel Insignia. Most of these cars seat up to five passengers, and can be hired by anyone 21 years of age or older. The drivers of the vehicle will just need to show a valid drivers license upon its collection, and the primary renter will need a major credit card for payment of the rental period. Larger cars available from Hertz include the Peugeot 5008 and Citroen C8 for seven passengers, and the Opel Vivaro for nine passengers.
For extra special service from Hertz, at Carcassonne Airport and all their other rental locations, it is recommended to join the Hertz #1 Club, which offers many time and money saving opportunities each time a rented car is required. Further details are available from Hertz Carcassonne Airport.
