Auto Europe Car Rental at Limoges
Auto Europe Limoges Airport
Limoges Airport is located just 6 km outside the city of Limoges, in France, and is one of the smaller airports of the country, with under 400,000 passengers per annum. However, the airport is international, and provides a convenient gateway to the areas in the Haute-Vienne department. There are also a number of towns and cities nearby which are frequently visited by tourists, including Poitiers, Brive-la-Gaillarde, Tulle and Chateauroux. Larger cities nearby include Lyon, Bordeaux and Toulouse, while Paris lies to the north of the airport. A rented car from Auto Europe Limoges Airport is the best option for transport, as there are no, or limited, bus services from the airport. Auto Europe has a wide range of vehicles at this rental location, and is a well known car rental company throughout Europe.
The single terminal building of Limoges Airport is reasonably well equipped with facilities such as shops and a restaurant, meeting rooms for business passengers, a cash machine and facilities for disabled passengers. The Limoges Airport car hire companies can be found in the arrivals area of the building, nearby the baggage reclaim hall, and Auto Europe is open during most hours of the day, when flights at the airport are due. The company’s rental cars are also parked nearby, within walking distance of the terminal. Although not a very busy airport, due to the lack of alternative transport options, many passengers rent a car, and it is therefore recommended to make an advanced reservation from Auto Europe. There are various websites available from where it is very convenient to make your entire car hire arrangements.
Auto Europe may offer additional items of equipment for hire, such as child seats and satellite navigation systems, and it is best to hire these items as early as possible, as they are subject to availability. The road network in France is very good, but a GPS unit is always useful in finding directions to various specific locations. The car hire companies usually offer units of high quality, which have all the necessary features to make driving an easy task. From a GPS, turn-by-turn directions are available, in voice or visual mode, and drivers can also make use of points of interest, which are pre-programmed on the device. Points of interest will include places like shops, restaurants, hotels, golf courses, gas stations and pharmacies.
The majority of the Limoges Airport car rental companies offer one way hires from the airport, and hand controls for disabled drivers on certain automatic vehicles. Auto Europe one way hires are applicable for customers who do not wish to return their vehicle to Limoges Airport, and hand controls are used for drivers with a lower limb deficiency, who still like to drive their own vehicle. The device operates the accelerator and brake pedals, and may come with a steering wheel knob. From Auto Europe, hand controls are rented free of charge, but a Limoges Airport one way hire may have additional charges, especially if the vehicle is returned to a location in another country.
Vehicles from Auto Europe at Limoges Airport include smaller models, such as the Peugeot 107, Opel Astra and Peugeot 207 hatchback. These cars are hired from the Mini, Compact and Economy categories, and usually come with the lowest car rental rates. They may also offer basic or all-inclusive rental rates. The basic rate will only include mandatory public liability insurance, fire insurance and value added tax, while the all-inclusive rate will cover all of the above, as well as optional collision damage waiver and optional theft protection insurance. All vehicles, besides certain luxury cars or convertibles, are hired with unlimited mileage. Keep in mind however, that Auto Europe does not include any surcharges for rentals commencing at airports in their quotes, and there may also be a mandatory road tax/registration fee for certain areas which will need to be paid locally. The all-inclusive rates option is ideal for customers who have no insurance.
Larger vehicles from Auto Europe can be hired from the Midsize or Fullsize categories, and are similar to the Opel Astra Sport Tourer, an estate vehicle, and the Citroen C8, which is a van able to accommodate up to eight passengers. All of Auto Europe’s vehicles are in excellent condition, as they are renewed on a regular basis. They are also checked for safety and cleaned for each customer. However, find out from Auto Europe if a breakdown assistance service is included in your rental, and have the numbers of the emergency service in your vehicle. Before you leave the airport, also make sure that all existing damages or scratches have been noted, as you don’t want to be held liable for any that you did not cause.
The primary renter at France car rental locations, including Limoges Airport, are expected to be at least 21 years of age, and to have a valid drivers license. In some cases, an International Driving Permit may be required. Customers can contact Auto Europe, at Limoges Airport, for all further enquiries.
