Auto Europe Nantes Airport

The airport of Nantes Atlantique is the largest in Western France, and is recognised by its official airport code of NTE. The airport is located approximately 8km, or 5 miles to the southwest of the city centre, and is easily accessed by main roads. It is a well equipped airport, with all modern facilities, and a wide range of transport options for arriving passengers, including the Auto Europe Nantes Airport car hire offices. A rented car from Auto Europe is the ideal form of transport for exploring the Pays de la Loire region of France, and this car rental company offers competitive prices and a wide range of vehicles for hire.

The Nantes Airport car hire companies are found within easy walking distance of the terminal, just opposite the main passenger building, and nearby the car park from where the rented vehicles can be collected. The airport is not very large, with a capacity to handle only three million passengers per annum, therefore all its facilities are easy to locate. The building of the airport is shaped like an ‘L’, and the longer side houses the Halls 1, 2 and 3, while the shorter side is where Hall 4 lies. The larger part of the airport is connected to Hall 4 by a lobby area. Passengers will arrive on the ground floor of the building, and will collect their belongings from the baggage reclaim areas before making their way to the car hire companies. Auto Europe is available every day of the week, from early in the morning to the later evening hours.

Auto Europe is a car rental company with over fifty years of experience in the industry, and currently operates over 8,000 rental locations in more than 130 countries around the world. They are also one of the most popular choices amongst airport passengers at many European locations. Auto Europe’s services include an excellent selection of car groups from which to choose, the rental of additional equipment such as child seats and satellite navigation systems, as well as one way hires and hand controls for disabled drivers. From Nantes Airport, one way hires can be a convenient option, and are free of charge if the vehicle is returned within France, while Auto Europe’s hand controls are used by individuals with a lower limb disability, and are available on certain types of automatic vehicles. From Nantes Airport, hand controls are free of charge, as well as most other services for disabled renters, for example, an additional driver for a primary renter who is unable to drive due to disability will also incur no extra costs.

Many of the Nantes Airport car rental companies offer low rental rates and all-inclusive prices which include certain types of vehicle insurance. From Auto Europe, quotes for vehicles can be ‘basic’ or ‘all-inclusive’, depending on the vehicle category chosen. The basic price covers mandatory public liability insurance, fire insurance and value added tax, while an all-inclusive rate covers the same, as well as optional collision damage waiver insurance and theft protection insurance. The quotes only do not include the mandatory surcharge applicable to rentals which commence at airport locations, or any road tax/registration fees which are paid locally. The majority of Auto Europe’s vehicles come with unlimited mileage, except for certain luxury models and convertibles.

The most affordable cars available are found in the Economy and Compact car groups, and are similar to the Renault Twingo, VW Polo, Renault Clio and Volkswagen Golf. These cars are smaller models, but can accommodate between four and five passengers, and have room for a couple of luggage items. They are especially ideal for single drivers or couples, and perhaps families who don’t have too many luggage items to transport. They are also vehicles with a manual transmission, therefore ensure that you are comfortable with driving this type of car, and may take diesel instead of petrol. Always confirm with Auto Europe the type of fuel, which is needed for your car before leaving the airport, as extra charges for having the engine cleaned will be your responsibility, should the wrong type of fuel be used.

The primary renter at Auto Europe, Nantes Airport, should be at least 21 years of age, and have held a valid drivers license for at least a year prior to the rental date. The same will be applicable to all additional drivers listed on the rental contract. Extra drivers will cost a few Euros per day of car hire, and younger drivers, under the age of 25, will also pay higher rental rates. The additional fee is used for young drivers insurance, which is a standard procedure from the majority of car hire companies. Auto Europe will accept most driving licenses printed in English, but in some cases, an International Driving Permit may be required for translation purposes.

Car hire at Nantes Airport can be in high demand, therefore it is recommended to make an advanced reservation from Auto Europe, especially if a specific car, larger car or any specialty type vehicle is required. Auto Europe can provide all further details relating to their services.
