Sixt Car Rental at Montpellier
Sixt Montpellier Airport
Montpellier Airport is located approximately 7km from the city centre of Montpellier, and is quite a large French airport handling over a million passengers per annum. It is rated as the country’s tenth largest airport in terms of passenger traffic, and is significant for tourists and business professionals alike. The airport is modern and well equipped with a variety of facilities, including the Montpellier Airport car hire companies, such as Sixt. In a rented car is often considered as one of the best ways to travel the region, and cars from Sixt are known to be in excellent condition and are hired at very competitive rental rates.
Montpellier Airport is officially known as the Montpellier-Méditerranée Airport, and is also commonly referred to as the Fréjorgues Airport. It is recognised by its official airport code of MPL. The airport has two terminals, from where all arrival and departure proceedings are handled, and two runways which are capable of handling large aircraft. In the arrival area, there are the car hire companies, including Sixt Montpellier Airport, a restaurant, cash machines, tourist information counters and various other facilities. The arrival hall is found on the ground floor of the terminal building. The airport’s main hours of operation are every day of the week, from 05:30 to 23:00, and the car hire companies are open to meet the majority of arrival flights. Sixt is open from Monday to Friday between 07:30 and 23:00, and on Saturdays from 08:00 to 22:00. They are open on Sundays as well, from 09:00 to 23:00.
For the best car rental rates from Sixt, vehicles should be reserved as early as possible, and customers should remember to request any optional items of equipment which may be required. These could include a satellite navigation system, child seats or luggage racks, and they will have a small additional charge per day of hire. In France, it is required by law for all in a vehicle to wear seatbelts, and a navigation system is most often very useful for travellers of the region. The equipment hired by Sixt is of high quality, and will be well worth the extra few Euros spent. Other equipment possible to hire may include Sixt hand controls for disabled drivers, for those with a lower limb disability, as they operate the brake and accelerator pedals of the vehicle. They are used on automatic cars, and are free of charge from the location of Montpellier Airport. Hand controls require an advanced reservation of at least 48 hours prior to your arrival, as they will need to be fitted to the vehicle.
Customers of Sixt can apply for the Sixt Express Card, and enjoy a range of exclusive services. At certain Sixt locations, there are self-service terminals which allow customers to bypass the rental counters by choosing their own vehicles, and printing their own rental contract. Express customers will also have access to the Sixt Mobile-Check-In service and the Sixt Online-Check-in service, which help to save time when making vehicle reservations. The card is free of charge, and available to all customers, however, more frequent renters have even greater advantages with the Sixt Gold Card, and ladies can benefit from their partner’s corporate rates with the Sixt Ladies Card. Most of the Montpellier Airport car rental companies offer special services for customers who rent a car more than a couple of times a year.
Additional services from this rental location may include Sixt one way hires for customers who are not driving back to Montpellier Airport. One way hires are convenient for customers who are travelling the country of France, or who are going to cross the border into another European country, as the car can be delivered to a different Sixt rental location. Hired cars can be driven to all cities in France, and to most of the countries in Europe, however, it is best to confirm all details with Sixt whilst booking your vehicle.
Sixt Montpellier Airport offers vehicles of high quality, and only those which are considered to be in a mechanically sound condition. Smaller cars from Sixt are less expensive, and may be similar to the Renault Twingo, Fiat Panda, Peugeot 207, Ford Fusion, Renault Clio, Ford Focus and Renault Megane, and they can seat between four and five passengers. There is also the Smart For Two, ideal as its name suggests, for just two passengers. These cars are wonderful choices for all journeys, but be careful to make sure that they will be able to store all your luggage items, as in this regard, they can be quite small.
