EasyCar La Rochelle Airport

La Rochelle Airport is one of the smaller airports in the country of France, but is nonetheless an important gateway to the city of La Rochelle, and many other surrounding areas in the Charente-Maritime department. The airport is recognised by its official code of LRH, and it is often referred to as the Laleu Airport. It is also the largest airport in the region, before Poitiers Airport. La Rochelle is found approximately 2.5km from the city, and is also an airport which serves Ile de Ré, an island just west of La Rochelle. Easycar is one of the La Rochelle Airport car hire companies available, and they are a popular choice amongst passengers arriving for leisure purposes. Easycar offers competitive car rental rates as well.

Within the single terminal building of La Rochelle Airport there are facilities for the needs of arriving and departing passengers. There are restaurants and airport shops, including duty-free stores, a post box, public telephones and tourist information offices. There is also a general information desk from where all information regarding the airport’s services can be obtained. Easycar La Rochelle Airport is found in the arrival area of the building, and cars may be hired directly over the rental counters, or in advance, from the various online websites which support Easycar reservations. Better deals are often achieved online, as all quotes from Easycar include an online booking discount. Easycar is open at La Rochelle Airport from 08:30 to 20:00, and from 22:00 to 22:15, in order to meet the arrival flights of the airport.

Easycar requires their primary renters to be at least 21 years of age in order to hire from the car categories of Economy, Compact, Intermediate and People Carrier, and 25 years of age or older for the other categories. All drivers registered on the rental agreement will need to show their driving license upon collection of the vehicle, and will need a major credit card for payment of the rental period. An International Driving Permit may be required for some renters as well, especially if their local license is printed in a non-Roman alphabet. Although the minimum age requirement is 21, drivers younger than 25 will pay higher rates for young driver fees.

Before leaving La Rochelle Airport in your rented car ensure that you have the emergency numbers to contact in case of an accident or breakdown, as Easycar provides free emergency roadside assistance, and that the vehicle has been thoroughly checked for all existing damages. The vehicle will be checked again upon its return, and you will be held liable for any new damages. Customers will also need to know which type of fuel their rented car requires, as it could be petrol or diesel. The wrong type of fuel used could result in additional charges on the rental contract for having the engine cleaned. All vehicles will begin their rental period with a full tank of fuel, and customers usually have the option to either purchase a full tank or simply to return the vehicle with a full tank. If fuel is purchased, the vehicle must be returned as empty as possible, as no refunds are given for unused fuel. Longer rentals will usually require the renter to purchase a full tank.

Hire cars can be returned to La Rochelle Airport, or arranged as an Easycar one way hire, and returned to a different rental location. Vehicles may be driven to any city in France, or even out of the country, to neighbouring European countries, such as Spain, Italy or Switzerland. From La Rochelle Airport, one way hires may incur additional charges, and are best reserved in advance. Smaller cars from Easycar include the Fiat Grande Punto, Vauxhall Corsa, Ford Fiesta 1.4, Peugeot 308 1.6 and the VW Golf 1.4 TSI in the Economy and Compact categories, and these are the vehicles which come with the lowest rental rates. They seat between four and five passengers, but are not as spacious as those found in the categories of Intermediate, Standard and People Carrier. Larger vehicles are similar to the Peugeot 407, VW Passat, Vauxhall Vectra and the Citroen C3 Picasso, while Vans able to accommodate up to seven passengers include the VW Touran, Opel Zafira and Renault Espace.

The La Rochelle Airport car rental companies often offer fully-inclusive rental rates, and from Easycar, a customer’s quote will include various insurances, such as collision damage waiver, theft protection and third party liability insurance, breakdown assistance and all taxes and fees associated with the vehicle and rental location. Most vehicles come with unlimited mileage as well, and their reservations can be cancelled free of charge within twenty-four hours of their request, provided that it is also before forty-eight hours of the agreed vehicle collection time.

Various items of optional equipment can be chosen for rented vehicles as well, and the cost of these items are not included in the rental quote. Easycar hires child seats for younger travellers, satellite navigation systems for those unfamiliar with the area and luggage racks for certain kinds of vehicles. Easycar hand controls for disabled drivers may also be available, and from La Rochelle Airport, hand controls are free of charge. Further details are available from Easycar, at La Rochelle Airport.
