Europcar Car Rental at Lille
Europcar Lille Airport
Lille Airport is one of the larger airports in France, with over a million passengers per annum, and is found just 7km, or 4 miles to the south-southeast of Lille city centre. Lille is the principle city of the Lille Métropole and capital city of the Nord-Pas de Calais region, and its airport is an important gateway for both passengers and cargo. It is commonly referred to as the Lille-Lesquin Airport, as it is located in Lesquin, and has the official IATA code of LIL. Although buses and taxis are available, many passengers prefer the privacy of a rented car, and the freedom to travel wherever in their own time. Europcar Lille Airport is one of the car hire companies present, and people choose Europcar for their excellent customer services and low car rental rates.
The Lille Airport car rental companies are found at the exit of the arrival hall, and are available during most hours of the day, seven days a week. Some may even be open on public holidays, but it is best to confirm Europcar’s hours of operation before your trip to Lille Airport. Once arriving at Europcar, you will need to show a valid drivers license which proves that you have been driving legally for a year or longer, and may require other documents, such as a return airline ticket. All drivers on the rental contract will need to be present to collect the vehicle. Europcar’s vehicles are parked in the airport car parking area, within walking distance of all facilities. At this rental location, it is recommended to hire your car in advance, especially during the busier seasons.
The primary renter of the vehicle, as well as all additional drivers, will need to be just eighteen years of age or older to hire any vehicle from Europcar, but all under the age of 25 will pay higher rental rates, for young driver insurance. This is a small amount added to each day of car hire, and which is applicable to each underage driver listed on the rental contract, usually up until a maximum of ten rental days. The amounts of the surcharge may vary between the car hire companies, but young driver fees are almost always applicable. Europcar will accept the driving license issued in most countries, but sometimes an International Driving Permit may be required, and it is often wise to carry this document when driving in a foreign country. The primary renter will also require a major credit card, as debit cards or cash payments are not accepted. Europcar will take American Express, Diners Club, Eurocard, Mastercard or Visa.
When collecting your vehicle from Europcar, ensure that it has been thoroughly checked for existing damages and scratches, and that these are noted so that you are not held liable for any you did not cause. The vehicle will be checked once again upon its return, which could be to another rental location or to Lille Airport. One way hires are when the vehicle is returned to a different location than its pick-up location, and are useful to those who plan to travel more extensively. Europcar one way hires may be the same price or more, depending on the length of the rental period and the return location chosen for the vehicle. If you are travelling out of the country of France, confirm with Europcar to where the vehicle may be driven.
The Lille Airport car hire companies have a wide range of vehicles for hire, and Europcar is no exception. There are small cars such as the Renault Twingo in the Mini category, and large Vans suitable for up to nine passengers, such as the Mercedes Vito. Smaller cars are also found in the Economy and Compact car groups, and are similar to the Peugeot 207, Renault Megane and Volkswagen Polo. These cars are eco-friendly, fuel-efficient and come with unlimited mileage and a manual transmission. They are easy to drive, and can seat between four and five passengers, however, a larger car is often more suitable for families with a couple of luggage items. Family rentals from Europcar include the Renault Grand Scenic in the Intermediate category, the Renault Laguna in the Standard category and the Renault Espace in the Fullsize category. All these vehicles are excellent for short or long journeys, and should provide an excellent driving experience. Keep in mind however, that larger cars such as the Renault Espace for seven passengers are not always available, and their rental will be confirmed by Europcar within forty-eight hours of the request.
From Europcar, Lille Airport, rental quotes will include all licenses and fees associated with the rental location or vehicle, VAT and the mandatory surcharge applicable to rentals commencing at airport locations.

Europcar hand controls are, however, free of charge, and used by individuals with a lower limb disability.
