Alamo Car Rental at Grenoble Airport

Grenoble Airport is an airport found within the Isère department of France, and is one of the important gateways to this area of the country. Many business passengers arrive at this airport, as well as tourists who are visiting the ski resorts of the French Alps. The airport serves over four hundred and fifty passengers every year, and is served by various airline companies. Locals refer to the airport as the Grenoble-Isère Airport, or it is otherwise called the Grenoble-Saint-Geoirs Airport. Facilities available include car hire companies such as Alamo Grenoble Airport, and Alamo is a very popular choice for those on vacation. Their cars and services are ideal for families, and their prices can suit any budget.

Grenoble Airport is located approximately 45km, or 28 miles from the city of Grenoble, a French city rich in historical and religious sights, amongst other attractions, and is also within an hour’s drive of the larger city of Lyon. The airport has a single terminal building, and is equipped with all the facilities required by its arriving and departing passengers. The car hire companies of the airport are found just outside of the two arrival areas, in a separate building, and are within easy walking distance of the baggage reclaim hall. The rented cars of Alamo and the other companies are parked in the airport car parking lot. Alamo is open for the majority of arrival flights at the airport, and is therefore a very convenient option for car hire services.

The Grenoble Airport car hire companies all offer vehicles and services under their own car rental terms and conditions, but most are quite similar. Alamo provides vehicles for all who are 21 years of age or older, and who have a held a valid drivers license in their country of residence for at least a year prior to the rental date. The renter of the vehicle will also need a major credit card, for example, American Express, Diners Club, Eurocard, Mastercard or Visa. Most car hire companies do not accept cash or debit cards. Although Alamo customers can rent a car from the age of 21, persons under the age of 25 will be subject to higher rental rates, as young drivers insurance is added to the agreement. The insurance will cost a small amount extra per day of car hire, and per underage driver listed on the rental contract, usually up until a maximum of ten rental days. Younger drivers are also not permitted to hire larger or specialty type vehicles.

Alamo, at Grenoble Airport, will accept most driving licenses which are printed in English, but customers from certain countries may require an International Driving Permit. An IDP serves as a translation document for the local license, and is not a valid license on its own. The two documents should always be carried together. Customers must arrange the IDP before leaving their home country. Unless the rented car is arranged as an Alamo one way hire, customers will return their vehicle to the same parking lot at Grenoble Airport, once their rental contract has expired. Returns should be made on time in order to avoid additional charges. From Grenoble Airport, one way hires may be returned to any other Alamo rental location in France, or even to a location in another European country. They may be more expensive, but a good option for customers who are leaving from a different airport.

Cars from Alamo, and the other Grenoble Airport car rental companies, are only of the latest models, and are in good overall condition. However, most come with free emergency roadside assistance, should any mechanical problems develop, or if the vehicle is in an accident. Alamo will also replace a vehicle which is unable to continue its journey. Most rentals come with unlimited mileage, and all cars will start with a full tank of fuel. Various fuel options are available for customers depending on the length of their rental period, and the car will need to be either returned full or as empty as possible. Alamo customers will find the most fuel-efficient and eco-friendly vehicles in the Economy car group, and they will be similar to the Peugeot 207 1.4. These are cars suitable for up to five passengers and two luggage items, and come with air conditioning, driver and passenger airbags, anti-lock brakes and power steering. Compact Wagons are also a popular rental choice, and are similar to the Peugeot 308 1.6.

Ideal for families are the car groups of Midsize, Standard, Standard Wagon, Fullsize and Fullsize Wagon, with cars which include the Ford Mondeo 1.6, VW Passat 1.8, Citroen C5 2.0, Audi A4 1.9 and Mercedes C200 CDI 2.0. Alamo Vans are also available, and are able to accommodate between seven and nine passengers. Certain vehicles hired have automatic transmissions, and these cars may be suitable for the fitment of Alamo hand controls for disabled drivers. From Grenoble Airport, hand controls and other services for disabled customers are free of charge.
