Alamo Car Rental Bergerac Airport
Alamo Bergerac Airport
Bergerac Airport is one of the smaller French Airports, as it handles only around 300,000 passengers per annum, but is an important gateway that serves the Dordogne department of the country, in mid-western France. The airport is found just 3km, or 1.6 miles from the city of Bergerac, and is particularly nearby the areas of Le Penaud, La Boule, Villac, Saint-Christophe and Roumanière, hence its other name of the Bergerac-Roumanière Airport. Passengers arriving at the airport can only travel by taxi, as there are no public bus services available, or by rented car, from a company such as Alamo Bergerac Airport. A rented car is considered as the best form of transport, and Alamo offers some of the most competitive rental rates at this location.
Bergerac Airport is a small facility with one terminal building, consisting of an arrival and departure area. All facilities of the airport are located on the same level, with the car hire companies nearby the arrivals hall. Passengers arriving at the airport can go directly to the rental counters of Alamo in order to arrange their vehicle, or make an advanced reservation, from one of the online sources that support Alamo car rental reservations. At this rental location, Alamo is open for reservations, vehicle collections and vehicle returns from 09:00 to 23:00, seven days a week. Alamo one way hires also enable the customer to return the vehicle to a different rental location, either within the country of France or in another European country, however, from Bergerac Airport, one ways which are returned to further locations may be more expensive.
The Bergerac Airport car hire companies offer a wide range of services and vehicles, and at Alamo, customers can enjoy a simplified reservation and rental process if they are members of the Quicksilver club. This is a free membership available for occasional and frequent renters, and can be easily applied for online. Quicksilver members enjoy special members-only deals, and may even be able to bypass the rental counters by using the Alamo self-service kiosks. For business renters, Alamo offers a very comprehensive corporate program, with benefits such as guaranteed, low rates throughout the year, priority counter service, unlimited mileage on round-trip rentals, flexible billing options, reduced surcharges for underage drivers and special discounts for leisure travel. Corporate clients may also more easily reserve their vehicle by using the dedicated corporate reservation desk, and can receive accurate monthly management reports upon request.
Along with quality vehicles, Alamo hires various items of additional equipment as well, such as child seats, luggage racks and satellite navigation systems; however, many of Alamo’s vehicles hired in France already include a GPS unit in their rentals. These cars are found in the categories of Standard Wagon, Fullsize, Fullsize Wagon, Luxury, Van and SUV, and may be similar to the Citroen C5 2.0, Audi A4 1.9, Mercedes C200 CDI 2.0, Mercedes E250 2.5, Citroen Grand Picasso C4 2.0 and Citroen C-Crosser 2.2. Customers driving these vehicles will also enjoy a variety of features, which may include cruise control, leather interiors, power steering and brakes, power locks and windows, driver and passenger airbags, air conditioning and folding rear seats.
From the Bergerac Airport car rental companies, the smaller vehicle models usually come with cheaper rental rates, and at Alamo, are found in the Economy, Compact Wagon and Midsize categories. An example of an Economy car is the Peugeot 207 1.4, while the Ford Mondeo 1.6 and Peugeot 3008 1.6 are found in the Midsize category. Before leaving Alamo, at Bergerac Airport, always ensure that you know which type of fuel to use for your rented car, as it could be petrol or diesel, and ask for the emergency numbers to contact should an accident or breakdown occur. All existing damages on the vehicle should also be accurately noted.
The primary renter at Alamo is required to be at least 21 years of age, and to have a valid drivers license and payment card, however, persons under the age of 25 are considered as ‘young drivers’, and will pay a higher rental rate. They may also not be permitted to hire from certain vehicle categories. Alamo accepts the local drivers licenses from most countries, but may require an International Driving Permit should the license be printed in a non-Roman alphabet. This document will then serve as a translation of the original license, and must always accompany the local license. It cannot serve as a driving license on its own. For payment of the rental, Alamo accepts the cards of American Express, Diners Club, MasterCard and Visa.

It may also include a steering wheel knob. From Bergerac Airport, hand controls are available free of charge, but should be reserved in advance of your arrival.
