Europcar Car Rental at Lourdes Tarbes
Europcar Lourdes Tarbes Airport
Lourdes Airport receives over 400,000 passengers every year, and is an international airport located in the south of France, just 10km from the popular city of Lourdes. It is an airport serving a number of towns in the Hautes-Pyrenees department of the country, and is a modern establishment considered as efficient for all its passengers. The airport has the official code of LDE, and is commonly referred to as the Tarbes-Lourdes Airport, or even as the Tarbes Ossun Lourdes Airport, due to its close proximity to the small town of Ossun. From the airport, passengers can hire cars for their business or leisure trip in the Pyrenees from companies such as Europcar Lourdes Airport. Europcar is well known around the world for providing low car rental rates and high quality vehicles.
The rental counters of Europcar are found on the ground floor of the airport’s terminal building, just across from the arrival area, and the company’s vehicles are parked within easy walking distance in the airport’s car parking lot. Europcar is open to meet the majority of the arrival flights of the airport, and is therefore a very convenient option for car hire services. Although Lourdes Airport is not as busy as some other French airports, it is always recommended to reserve your vehicle in advance, as often cheaper rental rates are offered for earlier bookings. It is also nice to know that your ideal car will be ready and waiting for your arrival at the airport, and that all additional items of equipment required for your journey will be available. These items may include a satellite navigation system, child seats or luggage racks.
Europcar’s vehicles, similar to those at the majority of the Lourdes Airport car hire companies, are organised into various car categories, for example, Mini, Economy, Compact, Intermediate, Standard and Premium. The rented cars are therefore not available by specific make and model, but customers will receive the same or similar vehicle to the example shown for each category on Europcar’s website. Mini cars are the company’s smallest rentals, and are ideal for single drivers or couples who have fewer luggage items to transport. They have three doors, a manual transmission and air conditioning, and are similar to the Renault Twingo. Smaller cars are also those which have the lowest rental rates, and a low fuel consumption. Economy cars are eco-friendly as well, and may include the Peugeot 207 and Volkswagen Polo. The Polo is a car which uses diesel, and not petrol. When hiring a vehicle, always ensure that you know which type of fuel to use, as additional costs for cleaning of the engine will be applicable should the wrong fuel type be used.
Intermediate is perhaps a more popular choice of car category for families travelling in France, as these cars offer more interior space and more room for luggage. They may also be more comfortable for longer road trips. Since that France has such an excellent road network, and so many wonderful towns and cities to explore, being able to travel easily to any location is essential.
