National Bergerac Airport

Bergerac Airport is located just 3km, or 1.6 miles from the city of Bergerac, and is also known as the Bergerac Dordogne Périgord Airport, or as the Bergerac-Roumanière Airport, due to its location nearby this area. The airport serves Bergerac, and the Dordogne region of France, and is mainly used by tourists and business professionals from the United Kingdom, as flights are offered from Birmingham, Southampton, London, Leeds/Bradford, Liverpool and Manchester. Many of these passengers rent a car, from companies such as National Bergerac Airport, as bus and train options from the airport are limited. National is one of the more popular car hire companies of the world, with a wide range of quality vehicles and low rental rates.

At Bergerac Airport, National is open from Monday to Sunday, between the hours of 09:00 and 23:00; therefore they are available for most of the arrival flights of the airport. Passengers will find National in the arrivals section of the single terminal building, and the rented cars parking nearby in the car parking area. The airport building is simply a large hall with an arrival area on the one side and departure facilities on the other, and is capable of handling up to 400,000 passengers per annum. It is considered as a small and friendly establishment, with short check-in queues and helpful staff members. Currently, the airport handles around 300,000 passengers per year, and is adequately equipped for the needs of its passengers.

The Bergerac Airport car hire companies offer a wide variety of vehicles, which are mostly arranged into certain car groups. From National, customers will therefore select a car category, rather than a vehicle by its specific make and model, and will receive a car similar (if not the same) as the example National provides for each category. Cars in the Economy group are fuel efficient, and similar to the Peugeot 207 1.4, and vehicles in the Compact Wagon category may include the Peugeot 308 1.6. These are examples of more affordable vehicles from National, as the smaller cars tend to be rented at lower rates than the larger sedans, SUVs and vans. However, smaller cars do not offer much room for luggage, and families may need something a bit larger.

National’s categories of Intermediate, Standard, Standard Wagon, Fullsize and Fullsize Wagon contain vehicles of a larger size, and those that have room for up to five items of luggage. The vehicles found in these categories are similar to the Ford Mondeo 1.6, VW Passat 1.8, Citroen C5 2.0, Audi A4 1.9 and the Mercedes C200 CDI 2.0. Many of these vehicles come with some wonderful features as well, such as air conditioning, driver and passenger air bags, folding rear seats, power steering, anti-lock brakes and power locks and windows. Some may even include a satellite navigation system in their rentals, which is convenient for all drivers who are unfamiliar with the Bergerac region of France.

Groups of travellers may need an even larger vehicle from National, and will therefore find the vehicles in the Van categories to be ideal. There is the Citroen Grand Picasso C4 2.0 and Citroen C8 for seven passengers, as well as the Citroen Jumpy 2.2, for up to eight people. Customers fond of SUVs can also hire the Ford Kuga 2.0 or Citroen C-Crosser 2.2, with a leather interior, from National. One way hires are available to customers who intend not to return to Bergerac Airport, but who are perhaps leaving France from a different airport location. This service is available for the majority of vehicles, and is usually free of charge provided that the vehicle is delivered to a location within the same country as it was collected. However, from Bergerac Airport, one way hires may also be driven to other European countries, and returned to a location within one of these countries.

Equipment for vehicles from National, and all the Bergerac Airport car rental companies, usually include child seats, luggage racks and satellite navigation systems, and even cars which are equipped with winter tyres, should it be necessary. These items will cost a few extra Euros per day of hire, but National hand controls for disabled drivers are available free of charge, and are used on certain vehicles with an automatic transmission hired from Bergerac Airport. Hand controls may include a steering wheel knob, and should always be reserved in advance, as they will need to be correctly fitted prior to your arrival. It is recommended to request such equipment at least forty-eight hours in advance of the time your flight is scheduled to arrive at the airport.

National was founded in 1947, and therefore, has well over fifty years of experience in the car rental industry. They are a company that have mainly focused their attention on the needs of the frequent airport business traveller, but have provided many services and vehicles for leisure car renters as well. During their years of service, National has helped to pioneer the corporate-account business, and was also the first car hire company to offer a comprehensive frequent-renter program, by the name of Emerald Club.

Customers can contact National, at Bergerac Airport, for all further details regarding their car rental needs, and the vehicles available for hire from this location.
