Avis Car Rental Bergerac Airport
Avis Bergerac Airport
Bergerac Airport is located approximately 3km, or 1.6 miles from the city of Bergerac, and in the Dordogne department of France. It is known as the Bergerac Dordogne Périgord Airport, and has the official code of EGC. Bergerac is also one of the smaller of the France Airports, with only 300,000 passengers per annum, but is nonetheless an important gateway to the Aquitaine region of the country. Flybe and Ryanair offer flights to the airport mainly from the United Kingdom. There are no bus or train services available, therefore a rented car from one of the Bergerac Airport car hire companies, such as Avis, is a good option for transport. Avis is well know as one of the best providers of car rentals around the world, and has a wide range of vehicles to offer.
Avis Bergerac Airport is found in the arrivals area of the single terminal building, and is open during varying hours throughout the week. The operating hours of Avis at this rental location are as follows: Monday – 12:00 to 20:30, Tuesday – 09:00 to 19:00, Wednesday – 09:00 to 18:00, Thursday – 10:00 to 18:00, Friday – 09:00 to 20:30, Saturday – 09:00 to 20:15 and Sunday – 10:00 to 17:00. In general, Avis is open to greet all arrival flights at the airport, and cars can be hired directly from their rental counters, or in advance, from various online websites. An advanced booking is recommended in order to ensure your ideal car is ready and available for your arrival at the airport.
Customers are also recommended to hire additional items of equipment needed for their vehicle in advance, as all optional items for hire are subject to availability. These items include child seats for families travelling with babies or young children, satellite navigation systems and luggage racks. Child seats come in various sizes, and the age of the child should be specified in order to receive the correct seat for your journey, and anyone who is unfamiliar with the Bergerac area of France is recommended to hire a GPS unit. The satellite navigation systems offered by most car hire companies are technologically advanced, and come with many useful features, including a choice of languages, turn-by-turn directions, colour touch screens and an extensive list of points of interest.
Although most optional items of equipment to hire will cost a few extra Euros per day of rental, Avis hand controls are free of charge for disabled drivers, and are useful to those with a lower limb deficiency. The device may also include a steering wheel knob for additional assistance. From Bergerac Airport, hand controls should be reserved at least 48 hours prior to your arrival, as they are only used on certain types of automatic vehicles, and will need to be fitted to the vehicle.
At Bergerac Airport, the primary renter hiring a car from Avis will need to be at least 21 years of age, and to have held a valid drivers license in his/her country of residence for a minimum period of one year prior to the rental date. However, the following car categories will require a minimum age of 25: E (Full Size), F (Standard), G (Convertible), M, N and O (Vans). For all under the age of 25, a young driver fee will be applicable, and this is an extra amount added per day of car hire and per underage driver listed on the rental agreement, up until a maximum of ten rental days. A major credit card will be needed to pay for the vehicle, and Avis accepts the following cards: Avis Charge Cards, American Express, Diners Club, Mastercard/Eurocard and Visa, but not those of Kyriel, Maestro, Indigo or Electron.
Most of Avis’ vehicles at Bergerac Airport can be arranged as a one way hire, and therefore returned to a different rental location. This location can be anywhere in France, or even in another European country. However, Avis one way hires are not permitted to be driven to Greece, Turkey, Eastern Europe, Commonwealth of Independent States or Baltic States. Vehicles may be taken to the United Kingdom, or to the islands of Corsica and Sardinia, provided that they are returned to the mainland.
