National Limoges Airport

Limoges Airport provides access to a number of important regions in France, but is one of the smaller international airports of the country, with only 337,000 passengers handled in 2010. It is also commonly referred to as the Limoges – Bellegarde Airport, or the Aéroport de Limoges – Bellegarde in French, and is distinguished from other airports by its code of LIG. A few airline companies serve the airport, including Flybe and Ryanair, and passengers can fly to Limoges Airport from UK destinations or from Nice, Paris-Orly and Lyon. Transport options from the airport are limited, therefore its best to rent a car from National Limoges Airport. National is an internationally recognised car rental company, with a wide choice of vehicles for hire.

At Limoges Airport, the primary renter and all additional drivers must be present, in person, when collecting their vehicle from National, and should meet the minimum age requirements of the car category they have chosen. Smaller cars found in the Economy and Compact categories will require the renter to be only 21 years of age or older, while larger vehicles, convertibles or premium vehicles may have a higher minimum age requirement, usually 25 years of age or older. Smaller cars however, are those which come with the most affordable rental rates, and are similar to the Peugeot 207 and Peugeot 308 1.6. These cars also feature anti-lock brakes, power steering, air conditioning and driver and passenger air bags.

National’s larger sedan models found in the Intermediate and Standard vehicle categories are similar to the Ford Mondeo 1.6, Peugeot 3008 1.6 and the VW Passat 1.8. These are wonderful cars for families, and for travelling France. Their fuel consumption is reasonable, as well as their rental rates. They are also comfortable, with room for a couple of luggage items, and have features such as power locks and windows, cruise control and air conditioning. Families who need a larger space for luggage may consider one of National’s wagon vehicles, such as the Citroen C5 2.0, which can easily hold up to five large luggage items. This car also comes with a satellite navigation system included in its rental, which is a wonderful feature for those who have never been to the Limousin region in France.

Other vehicles from National that include a GPS unit are the Audi A4 1.9, Mercedes C200 CDI 2.0, Mercedes E250 2.5 and the Citroen Grand Picasso C4 2.0, which is a van able to accommodate up to seven passengers. The Mercedes C200 is another wagon vehicle with plenty of space for luggage as well. Alternative vans from National include the Citroen C8 2.0 and the Citroen Jumpy, which has room for eight passengers. Many of the vans also have folding rear seats, which can be a useful feature for awkward luggage items. Always ensure that you know which type of fuel to use for your rented car, as some may use ordinary petrol, while others are of the diesel variety. National will need to have the engine cleaned if the wrong type of fuel is used, and you will be liable for the costs.

Limoges Airport car rental companies offer their vehicles with a full tank of fuel at the beginning of the rental period, and customers will either need to return the vehicle full or empty, depending on whether they have purchased fuel in advance or not. Longer rentals of over three days usually require an upfront fuel purchase, while shorter rentals allow the customer to simply return the vehicle with a full tank. When fuel is purchased in advance, the vehicle should be returned as empty as possible, as no refunds are given for unused fuel. To pay for your car rental from National, a major credit card will be required, for example, American Express, Diners Club, Mastercard / Eurocard and Visa. Certain car rental companies offer their own charge cards as well.

National one way hires are popular amongst customers who are not returning to Limoges Airport. One way hires can be returned to any National rental location in France or to a location in another country, such as Spain or Italy. However, one way hires may be more expensive if they are returned to another country. Another service offered by the majority of Limoges Airport car hire companies is hand controls for disabled drivers. National hand controls are used on certain types of automatic vehicles, and operate the accelerator and brake pedals of the vehicle. The device may also come with a steering wheel knob for additional assistance. At Limoges Airport, hand controls should always be reserved in advance.

National is a car rental company with over fifty years of experience in the industry, and have, over the years, helped to pioneer the corporate-account industry, and also introduced the first comprehensive frequent-renter program, by the name of Emerald Club. National also has thousands of rental locations in many countries of the world. At Limoges Airport, passengers can contact National for all further details in regards to their car rental requirements.
