Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport, or the Roissy Airport, is located approximately 25 km, or 16 miles northeast of Paris, one of the most famous cities in Europe. The airport is extremely large and busy, with 58 million passengers per annum, and it covers an area which includes several departments and communes of the region. It features three large terminal buildings, some with many satellite buildings and four runways, two of which are completely independent. Passengers arriving at this airport can rent a car from National Charles de Gaulle Airport, in order to reach their next destination, or to explore the surrounding cities and suburbs of Paris. A rented car from National is the ideal form of transport, and National offers vehicles in all shapes and sizes.
At this airport location, the rental counters of National can be found within all terminals. National is found in Terminal 1, which is the largest of the buildings at Charles de Gaulle Airport, and has seven satellite terminals for arrival and boarding operations. Customers will however, collect their baggage from the reclaim areas on the fifth level. Terminal 2 is also very large, and consists of numerous sub-terminals. National can be found in the Terminals 2A, 2B, 2C, 2D and 2F. Charles de Gaulle Airport has a third terminal as well, which is used for the arrival and departure of all low-cost and charter airlines. Passengers arriving at Terminal 3 can transfer to the other terminals by the CDGVAL, which is the airport’s automated light rail system, which links all three terminals, the remote car parking areas and the railway stations for RER B trains and TGV train services. National is open for reservations, vehicle collections and vehicle returns between the hours of 06:00 and midnight, seven days a week.
All the Charles de Gaulle Airport car rental companies have many years of experience, and offer their customers a wide range of quality vehicles for hire. National has over fifty years of experience in the car rental business, and has thousands of rental locations across the world. Since their establishment, their main focus has been on providing for the needs of the frequent airport business traveller, and National has helped to pioneer the corporate-account business. They were also the first car hire company to offer a comprehensive frequent-renter program. This program is referred to as Emerald Club, and thousands of members today enjoy a range of exclusive time and money saving services. Although National is a company preferred by business professionals, they offer many car hire options for families on vacations, and have several vehicles which are ideal for travelling holidays.
National’s cars at Charles de Gaulle Airport are divided into various car categories, for example, Economy, Compact Wagon, Intermediate, Standard and Full Size. There are also Luxury cars available, such as the Mercedes E250 2.5, ideal for those in need of a more elegant vehicle, and Vans, similar to the Citroen Grand Picasso C4 2.0 for seven and the Citroen Jumpy for eight people. The Citroen Jumpy comes with many features, including power steering and power brakes, power locks and windows, air conditioning, driver and passenger air bags and folding rear seats. It is also a passenger van which needs diesel, and its renters should therefore be careful to use the correct type of fuel. Always find out from National the correct fuel for your vehicle before leaving the airport, and ensure that you are comfortable with the workings of the vehicle.
Passengers on a tighter budget may prefer a smaller car, such as the Peugeot 207 1.4. Although smaller than the Ford Mondeo in the Intermediate category and the VW Passat 1.8 in the Standard category, the Peugeot can seat up to five people, and features anti-lock brakes and power steering. Economy cars are also very fuel efficient. Wagons are ideal for families with plenty of luggage items, for example, the Peugeot 308 1.6, with room for four large items, and the Citroen C5 2.0, with space for five luggage items. This is a also a car which has a satellite navigation system included in its rental. Other vehicles with this feature include the Audi A4 1.9, the Mercedes C200 CDI 2.0, the Citroen C8 2.0 and the Citroen C-Crosser 2.2, which is an SUV.
Charles de Gaulle Airport car hire companies offer their vehicles as one way hires, and may even provide hand controls for disabled drivers. Additional equipment can also be hired, such as child seats and luggage racks. At Charles de Gaulle Airport, hand controls are free of charge, but should always be reserved in advance, as they are only available on certain types of automatic vehicles, and will require installation. A Charles de Gaulle Airport one way hire may also be free of charge, but the price will depend on the final destination of the rented car. National requires all their drivers in France to be at least 21 years of age, and to have a valid drivers license which is printed in a Roman alphabet. Certain renters may, therefore, require an International Driving Permit.
National can be contacted at their Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport rental location for all further enquiries.
