EasyCar Car Rental at Grenoble Airport

Grenoble Airport is one of the important gateways to the French department of Isère, and is located approximately 45km, or 28 miles north-west of Grenoble city. The airport is also nearby Lyon, a major city in the country, and only 2.5km from the commune of Saint-Etienne-de-Saint-Geoirs. It is a small French airport, handling around five hundred thousand passengers every year, and is served by several important airline companies. Facilities at the airport include Grenoble Airport car hire companies, such as Easycar, and these companies are easily located nearby the passenger terminal. Easycar and their car rental services are often chosen by holiday makers, as well as by business professionals.

The car rental companies at Grenoble Airport are found in a separate building just across from the single terminal building, and are within walking distance from all airport facilities. Within the terminal, there are two arrival areas, cash machines, a bar/restaurant and various airport shops. Departing passengers have access to three boarding areas and a VIP lounge, while business clients can arrange meetings at the airport’s conference facilities. Easycar Grenoble Airport is open from 08:30 to 18:00 throughout the week, and is therefore available to meet arrival flights at the airport. The rented cars of the company are parked at the airport as well. From Easycar, it is best to reserve your car online, in order to receive the best car rental rates, as your quote will include an online booking discount.

A vehicle quote from Easycar will also include various insurances, for example, collision damage waiver, theft protection and third party liability insurance, all taxes and fees applicable to the vehicle or rental location and breakdown assistance. Customers enjoy unlimited free mileage as well, and may cancel their reservation free of charge within twenty-four hours of the request, provided that it is also before forty-eight hours of the agreed collection time. The following is a list of items/services which are not included in the vehicle quote: Fuel, young drivers’ surcharge, credit card charge, additional driver, optional extras (for example a baby seat) and the damage or theft excess charges. The young drivers surcharge is applicable to all drivers under the age of 25, and is an amount payable per day of car hire, up until a maximum of ten rental days. Younger drivers may also not be permitted to hire from certain vehicle categories, usually those which contain larger or specialty vehicles.

The majority of the Grenoble Airport car rental companies offer equipment for hire such as satellite navigation systems and child seats, and sometimes even ski racks and winter tyres for certain vehicles. These items are optional, and not included in the rental quote. Free of charge however, are Easycar hand controls for disabled drivers. Hand controls operate the main functions of automatic vehicles (the accelerator and brake pedals), and are therefore most effective for persons with a lower limb disability. They don’t operate any other functions of the vehicle, such as the lights, windshield wipers or blinkers. From Grenoble Airport, hand controls will need to be reserved in advance, at least forty-eight hours before collection of the vehicle. Other services for disabled customers may be available from Easycar as well, and the Grenoble Airport terminal is designed to be completely accessible.

Easycar has a variety of vehicle groups for their customers, and they include Super Mini, Economy, Compact, Intermediate, People Carrier, Automatics and Compact Convertible. The smaller and most affordable cars for hire are found in the Super Mini and Economy car groups, and are similar to the Renault Twingo, Ford Ka 1.0, Chevrolet Aveo, Ford Fiesta 1.4, Vauxhall Corsa and the Citroen C3 1.4. The Citroen is an example of a car which runs on diesel. Customers should always be careful to find out which type of fuel is best for their rented car. Vehicles will start their rental period with a full tank of fuel, and should be returned in the same way if no fuel is purchased. If the rental is longer than three days, customers are usually required to purchase fuel, and should then return the car as empty as possible, as no refunds are given for unused fuel.

Compact cars such as the Opel Astra, Volkswagen Golf 1.4 and Peugeot 308 1.6 are often chosen by persons in need of car hire from Grenoble Airport, and families with more luggage to carry will find some nice car options in the Intermediate category. The Opel Zafira with room for seven passengers is even found in the Intermediate MPV 7 Seater category. Other larger sized vehicles from Easycar include the Renault Espace for seven and the Renault Traffic for nine passengers. Any customer whose travel itinerary does not bring them back to Grenoble Airport can arrange an Easycar one way hire, and choose a different return rental location. Vehicles may be driven throughout the country of France and to most other European countries, however, from Grenoble Airport, one way hires which are returned to further locations may be more expensive.
