Alamo Car Rental at Lille
Alamo Lille Airport
Lille Airport is located just 7km, or 4 miles from the city centre of Lille, and is a medium-sized French airport handling over a million passengers per annum. The airport is served by airline companies such as Air France, Aigle Azur, Ryanair, Vueling and Royal Air Maroc, and they fly to a variety of French and international locations. Lille Airport has the official IATA code of LIL, and it is also commonly referred to as the Lille-Lesquin Airport, due to its location in the Lesquin area. To travel the region, many passengers find it best to rent a car, from a car hire company such as Alamo Lille Airport. Alamo is famous for providing quality car rental services for persons on vacation, and offers competitive rental rates from Lille Airport.
Lille Airport has a single terminal well equipped for the needs of its passengers, with separate areas for arrivals and departures. The airport is described as a ‘fifteen-minute’ airport, which means that all measures are taken to ensure minimal transfer and waiting times for all passengers. Therefore, most consider it to be a very efficient establishment. The Lille Airport car hire companies are open to meet the arrival flights of the airport, and Alamo’s specific hours are as follows: Monday to Friday between 07:15 and 22:15, Saturday from 09:00 to 13:00 and on Sundays from 05:00 to 22:15. Although these times can be used as a guideline, it is always best to confirm with Alamo if they will be open at the time of your arrival, especially if it is on a public holiday. It is also recommended to hire your vehicle from Alamo in advance, from an online resource, in order to ensure the lowest car rental rates.
Alamo at this rental location, is found at the exit of the arrival hall, and when collecting your vehicle, all drivers listed on the rental agreement will need to be present. A valid drivers license showing that the person has driven for a year or longer in his/her country of residence will be required, and all persons driving the vehicle will need to be at least 21 years of age. Certain car categories will not be available to renters under the age of 25, and a young driver fee will be applicable to persons of this age as well. The young driver fee is an amount added to each day of car hire, and for each underage driver listed on the rental contract, up until a maximum of ten rental days. Other documents possibly required may be a return airline ticket and an International Driving Permit, in particular for those whose local license is printed in a non-Roman alphabet. A major credit card will be needed for payment of the rental.
Before leaving Lille Airport, ensure that you have the emergency numbers to contact in case of an accident or breakdown, and that you are happy with the general workings of the vehicle. It is also best to confirm which type of fuel your rented car will use, as it could be petrol or diesel. Alamo should make a list of all the vehicle’s existing damages as well, so that you are not held liable for any you did not cause. Be clear on the route to your next destination as well, and perhaps hire a satellite navigation system if you are unfamiliar with the Lille Métropole area. Other items can also be hired for your rented car, such as a child seat for younger travellers and luggage racks. Alamo hand controls for disabled drivers are free of charge, and from Lille Airport, hand control equipment should be reserved in advance.
The Lille Airport car rental companies will allow one way hires for most of their vehicles as well, and this is a convenient option for anyone who is not returning to Lille Airport. One way hires can generally be driven to all areas of France, and into other European countries as well, such as Belgium, which is just to the north and east of Lille. Cross border rentals, or Alamo one way hires, may be more expensive, but their price will be determined by the length of the rental period and the delivery location of the vehicle.
Alamo’s cars are all of the latest models, and are considered to be in excellent overall condition. They are divided into various car groups, and are therefore priced and booked accordingly. The smaller cars are rented from the Economy and Compact Wagon categories, and they are similar to the Peugeot 207 1.4 and the Peugeot 308 1.6. Smaller vehicles are often eco-friendly, light on fuel and easy to drive, and come with some nice features, such as air conditioning, anti-lock brakes, driver and passenger air bags and power steering. They don’t however, offer much room for luggage, and families may require something a little larger, similar to the Ford Mondeo 1.6, Peugeot 3008 1.6, VW Passat 1.8, Citroen C5 2.0 and the Audi A4 1.9. These are vehicles available from Alamo’s Midsize, Standard, Standard Wagon and Fullsize categories. Alamo has Vans for hire ideal for groups of travellers as well, such as the Citroen Grand Picasso C4 2.0, Citroen C8 2.0 and the Citroen Jumpy 2.2, for nine passengers.
