Auto Europe Nice Airport

Nice Airport has the official code NCE, and its full name is known as the Nice Côte d’Azur Airport. The location of the airport is nearby Nice city centre, and in the Alpes-Maritimes department of France. It is a popular arrival point for millions of passengers every year, as it serves the areas of Nice, Cannes, Monaco and Antibes. Nice Airport is the third largest in the country, with approximately ten million passengers per annum. Only the Paris Charles de Gaulle and Paris Orly Airports have a greater number of passengers than Nice. The best form of transport from the airport is a rented car from a company such as Auto Europe Nice Airport. Auto Europe is found at all major European airports, and offer their customers excellent value for money.

Nice Airport is well equipped with all essential facilities for arriving and departing passengers, and these facilities are found in two terminal buildings, referred to as Terminal 1 and Terminal 2. They are quite far from one another; therefore regular shuttle buses provide passengers with transport. The Nice Airport car rental companies are generally found in both terminal buildings, nearby the information desk of the Terminal 1 arrivals area, and between gates A2 and A3 of Terminal 2’s arrival area. The rented cars are however parked in a car park nearer to Terminal 2, behind the P5 car park, and therefore, passengers arriving in Terminal 1 may need to use the shuttle bus in order to collect their vehicles. The buses are available every six to ten minutes, depending on the time of day, and collect passengers from the arrival area gate A0 of Terminal 1. From Terminal 2, a well indicated footpath is taken to reach the ‘Car Rental Centre’ of the airport.

Auto Europe, at Nice Airport, is open during all hours of the day and evening, seven days a week, and offers their customers a wide range of vehicles and car rental services. Additional equipment can be hired along with your vehicle, such as child seats, luggage racks and satellite navigation systems, and if you won’t be returning to Nice Airport, one way hires can be requested. Auto Europe one way hires are a most convenient option, as they allow the vehicle to be delivered to a different rental location. They are also mostly free of charge, provided that the vehicle is returned within the country of France. An additional cost will be applicable should the car be taken to other nearby countries, and delivered to a further location. Otherwise, vehicles are collected and returned to the same car parking area at Nice Airport.

Equipment for hire such as satellite navigation systems are highly recommended for all drivers who are unfamiliar with the road network that surrounds the city of Nice. In general, the roads of France are very well organised, and many of the cities feature a ring road which is connected to the main motorways leading to and from the cities. However, a GPS unit can be most useful for finding your way, and from Auto Europe, are high quality devices with many desirable features. They are also usually pre-programmed with thousands of points of interest, which will enable you to easily locate the nearest fuel station, restaurant, hotel, pharmacy, tourist attraction, place of business etc.

The terminal buildings are fully equipped with their needs in mind, and Auto Europe hand controls are available for drivers with a lower limb disability. This device is used on certain types of automatic vehicles, and controls the accelerator and brake pedals of the vehicle. Although most additional items of equipment will cost a few extra Euro per day of hire, hand controls are free of charge. From Nice Airport, hand controls should be reserved at least 48 hours prior to your arrival, as they will need to be correctly fitted to the vehicle.
