Auto Europa Car Rental at Dinard
Auto Europa Dinard Airport
Dinard Airport is found in the commune of Pleurtuit, just 5km, or 3.1 miles from the town of Dinard, in France. It is also nearby the city of Saint-Malo, along the northern coastline of the French Brittany region. Although only a very small establishment, Dinard-Pleurtuit Airport is an important gateway to all the towns in the area, and in general, to the Ille-et-Vilaine department of the country. DNR is the official code assigned to the airport. Passengers in need of transport after arriving at the airport usually rent a car, from one of the Dinard Airport car rental companies, such as Auto Europa. Auto Europa, although not the only car hire company at the airport, is a popular choice for reasonable rental rates.
Dinard Airport, or the Saint-Malo Airport, consists of a single terminal building, which has the facilities which can be expected at most small airports. There is a restaurant/bar, a lost luggage office, public payphones and a general information desk for all enquiries relating to the airport. There are also areas for departures and arrivals, and the car hire companies of the airport are found nearby the arrival hall. All facilities of Dinard Airport are within easy walking distance, including the actual vehicles of the car rental companies. Auto Europa Dinard Airport is open for vehicle reservations during the most part of the day, seven days a week, and is available for all arrival flights of the airport. Even though the airport is small, with only around 120,000 passengers per annum, it is recommended to hire your car in advance, in order to secure the best rental rates, and to ensure that your ideal car is available.
Vehicles hired by Auto Europa are chosen by vehicle category, rather than by specific make and model, and customers will therefore receive a car similar to the example shown on the company’s website for each category. It may not be the exact same make and model as the example. It will, however, be very similar in size and characteristics, and all vehicles from Auto Europa are only of the latest models. They are also regularly cleaned and checked for safety, and considered to be in good mechanical condition. Eco-friendly, fuel-efficient cars are found in the categories of Economy and Compact, and may be similar to the Citroen Nemo, Fiat Punto, Ford Focus, Citroen C3, Citroen C3 Picasso, VW Golf and Citroen Berlingo. Although these cars are priced differently, they are the vehicles which are generally hired with lower rental rates. They are able to seat between four and five passengers, and often come with air conditioning and power steering, amongst other nice features.
There are also larger vehicles available from the Dinard Airport car hire companies, and from Auto Europa, these cars are found in the Midsize, Standard and Fullsize categories. An example of a Midsize car is the Peugeot 407, while the Citroen C8 (seven passengers) and the Ford Galaxy (seven passengers) can be found in the Fullsize category. Standard cars are also good rental choices, and include the Ford Mondeo, Citroen C5 and Citroen Jumper, for nine passengers. A vehicle from Auto Europa may also include a GPS unit in its rental, which is a great option for all drivers who don’t travel this region of France very often. Auto Europa one way hires may be arranged as well from Dinard Airport. One ways hires are often convenient for passengers leaving France from a different airport location, and are available for the majority of vehicles hired.
Customers can hire child seats for their younger family members, and Auto Europa hand controls for disabled drivers may be available as well. Hand controls are used on certain types of automatic vehicles, and are useful to those with a lower limb disability, as they operate the brake and accelerator pedals of the vehicle. From Dinard Airport, hand controls are available free of charge, but any other item of equipment or service may cost a few extra Euros. The terminal building of Dinard Airport is also fully equipped for the comfort of disabled passengers, with pavement ramps, lifts and suitable toilet facilities.
Two rates are available from Auto Europa, the basic rate and the all-inclusive rate. A basic quote will cover third party liability insurance, fire insurance and VAT, while an all-inclusive rate will cover the same, as well as optional collision damage waiver and optional theft protection insurance. Auto Europa therefore provides many price options for their customers, which can be very convenient. Most vehicles, with the exception of a few convertibles and luxury models, will include unlimited mileage as well.
The primary renter at Auto Europa, Dinard Airport, will need to meet the minimum age requirement of 21, and have a valid drivers license.
