Europcar Car Rental Bergerac Airport
Europcar Bergerac Airport
Bergerac Airport is found in the mid-western region of France, and is nearby the city of Bergerac. It is an airport with only around 300,000 passengers per annum, but is an important gateway to the Dordogne department of the country. The majority of the airport’s passengers arrive from the United Kingdom, on flights offered by Flybe, Ryanair, Twin Jet, Jet2.com and Transavia. Although a small airport, it is well equipped with various facilities, including a selection of car rental companies. One of these companies is Europcar Bergerac Airport, and many passengers choose Europcar for their wide range of vehicles, low rental prices and excellent customer services.
The car rental companies are found in the arrival area of Bergerac Airport, and are easily accessed by all arriving passengers. The airport is just a single terminal building, with departure facilities on the one side and the arrivals area on the other. All facilities are also located on one level. Renting a car from Europcar is one of the best forms of transport for arriving passengers, as there are no public bus services available, only taxis, and taxis can be rather expensive for those who need to travel often. There is also no train station at the airport, only in the city of Bergerac. A rented car provides the freedom to fully explore this beautiful region of France, and is the most convenient way to reach all the attractions of the area.
The Bergerac Airport car hire companies are open during the times of flight arrivals, and Europcar vehicles can be reserved over the counter, or in advance. The rented cars are found in the parking area nearby, which is within walking distance of the terminal building, and will be clean and ready for a customer who has made an advanced booking. Europcar only hires the latest model vehicles, which are, on average, only six months of age, and are therefore in excellent condition. However, all vehicles are hired with breakdown assistance should something go wrong with the vehicle. Customers will need to ensure that they have the emergency phone numbers to contact, should such an incident occur, before leaving the airport.
Hired cars are also checked for any existing damages before the new rental commences, and noted for the security of the customer. Upon return, the vehicle is checked once again, and any new damages or scratches will be the responsibility of the current renter. Vehicles are returned to the same location as they were collected, unless a Europcar one way hire has been arranged. This service allows the customer to deliver the car to a different rental location, either in the country of France, or in another European country. From Bergerac Airport, one way hires may be arranged for all vehicles, and are more convenient for travellers who are driving further distances, and who are leaving from another France airport.
The road network in France is excellent, and therefore a vehicle from one of the Bergerac Airport car rental companies is easy to drive to any town or city. The main road leading from Bergerac Airport is the N21, and this road will take drivers into the city, or further north to Périgueux. It also provides access to areas further south, such as Villeneuve-sur-Lot and Agen. Even further south is the larger city of Toulouse, and just west of the airport is Bordeaux. All these areas are easily travelled in a rented car, and offer several wonderful attractions to enjoy. There are also many smaller towns nearby Bergerac that are worthy of exploration as well. If you are unfamiliar with the road network of France, it may be best to hire a satellite navigation system from Europcar.
Europcar hand controls for disabled drivers are another item of equipment available, and are used by drivers with a lower limb disability. The device operates the brake and accelerator pedals of an automatic vehicle, and may include a steering wheel knob. From Bergerac Airport, hand controls and other services for disabled drivers or customers are free of charge, but the equipment should be reserved in advance. Child seats, GPS units, luggage racks and all other optional equipment will cost a few extra Euros per day of hire.
At Bergerac Airport, Europcar’s vehicles come in all shapes and sizes, and smaller options may be similar to the Renault Twingo and Peugeot 207. Europcar requires the primary renter to be just eighteen years of age or older to hire any of their vehicles, provided that the person is in possession of a valid drivers license. Smaller cars are more affordable to hire, but do not offer much room for luggage. Larger cars from Europcar are similar to the Renault Megane, Volkswagen Polo and the Renault Grand Scenic, however, cars such as the Scenic have a low availability, and all bookings will be confirmed within 48 hours via email correspondence. The Mercedes Classe C is also available for customers who require a more elegant vehicle.
