Budget St Etienne Airport
Saint-Etienne Airport is located approximately 12km, or 7 miles from the city of Saint-Etienne, in eastern central France, and is one of the smaller airports of the country, serving under a hundred thousand passengers per year. Although nearby Saint-Etienne, it is situated in Andrézieux-Bouthéon, and is therefore officially known as the Saint-Etienne-Bouthéon Airport. It is also recognised by its airport code of EBU. The Saint-Etienne Airport car hire companies include Budget Car Rental, a company well known around the world for providing car hire services at very affordable rates. Budget has been in business for a significant number of years, and is therefore an expert on providing excellent customer service.

The car rental counters of Budget are in the single terminal building of the airport, and can be conveniently accessed from the arrival area or from the main part of the building. Car hire at this location is also convenient as the rented vehicles are parked on the airport grounds, in a reserved car park, within easy walking distance from the terminal.
