EasyCar St Etienne Airport

Saint-Etienne Airport is one of the smaller airports of the country France, and is located just outside of Saint-Etienne, in an area referred to as Andrézieux-Bouthéon. This airport is international, and is mainly served by the three airline companies of Ryanair, Luxair and Pegasus Airlines. They offer flights to Istanbul, Porto and Bastia. Saint-Etienne Airport is also commonly referred to as the Bouthéon Airport, due to its location, and it has been allocated the official airport code of EBU. Arriving passengers can rent a car for transportation, from companies such as Easycar Saint-Etienne Airport. Easycar is a popular choice of car rental company for their low rates and high quality vehicles.

Although a small airport, currently with under a hundred thousand passengers per annum, Saint-Etienne’s single terminal is well equipped with facilities for arriving and departing passengers, and is capable of processing between 250,000 and 350,000 passengers per year. There are meeting rooms available for professional clients, an airport shop and snack bar, public telephones, WiFi connections and general information counters. The Saint-Etienne Airport car hire companies, which include Avis, Budget, Europcar and Auto Europa, as well as Easycar, can be found on the ground floor, nearby the arrivals area. At this rental location, Easycar is open at hours which are convenient for the arrival flights of the airport, in order to meet their customers. It is not a very busy airport, therefore the car hire companies are not open twenty-four hours a day.

Easycar is a relatively ‘new’ car hire company, when compared to other car hire giants, such as Hertz, National and Auto Europa, as they have only been in business since April 2000. However, they now have over ten years of experience in providing excellent customer service, and have grown to more than 2,400 rental locations in a variety of countries around the world. Easycar is particularly popular for their low prices, but are well known for their friendly and reliable service as well. Your quote, which is best acquired online, will include breakdown assistance, unlimited mileage, third party liability insurance, collision damage waiver insurance, theft protection and all taxes and fees for the rented car or location. An online booking discount will also be included, and customers may cancel their reservation free of charge within twenty-four hours of the request, provided that it is also forty-eight hours before the agreed time of vehicle collection.

The items usually not included in the rental quote are fuel, young driver surcharges, credit card charges, additional driver fees, equipment hired as optional extras and damage or theft excess charges. The Saint-Etienne Airport car rental companies have car seats, satellite navigation systems and luggage racks for their vehicles, which can be hired by their customers. The items will cost a few extra Euro, but are well worth it for the safety and ease of your journey in France. Certain vehicles hired may even include a GPS unit in their rental. Fuel for the rented car is purchased upfront if the rental is longer than a few days, and then the vehicle is returned as empty as possible. However, if the rental is only for a day or two, no fuel purchase is necessary, and the vehicle must simply be returned full. There may also be charges for Easycar one way hires, the service which allows the vehicle to be returned to a different rental location, other than Saint-Etienne Airport. One way hires can be a very convenient option.

Saint-Etienne Airport, similar to all other French airports nowadays, provides various facilities for the comfort of disabled passengers. From the car hire companies at Saint-Etienne Airport, hand controls for disabled drivers may be available, and are an option for those with a lower limb disability. The device works with certain types of automatic vehicles, and operates the brake and accelerator pedals. Easycar hand controls are free of charge, but will require an advanced reservation.

Easycar’s vehicles are all only of the latest model, and are considered as mechanically sound. However, should an accident occur, or a breakdown, another vehicle will be provided to replace the one which cannot be driven further. The rented cars are divided into various car groups, for example, Super Mini, Economy, Compact, Intermediate and People Carrier. The smaller cars similar to the Ford Ka 1.0 and Vauxhall Corsa are hired with the best rental rates, and are ideal for travellers without too many luggage items. The Renault Scenic is a little larger, and the Opel Zafira is able to seat up to six passengers.

The primary renter at Easycar, Saint-Etienne Airport, must be 21 years of age or older, with a valid drivers license and major credit card in his/her own name. Sometimes an International Driving Permit must accompany the local licence. Additional drivers on the rental contract should meet the same criteria as the primary renter. Easycar will be happy to provide all further information required.
