Hertz Car Rental Nantes Airport
Hertz Nantes Airport
Nantes Airport is located approximately 8km, or 5 miles from the city centre of Nantes, and is the largest airport in the west of France. However, its capacity is capped at three million passengers per year, and it has no room for further expansion, therefore a new airport is planned to be built and operational by the year 2015, by the name Aéroport du Grand Ouest. Until then, although buses are available from Nantes Atlantique Airport, a rented car from one of the car hire companies is highly recommended for transport, and Hertz Nantes Airport is an excellent choice. Hertz is one of the main providers of car rental services in the world, and offers their customers a wide range of quality vehicles.
Nantes Airport consists of an ‘L’ shaped, single terminal building which is divided into four halls. In the longer ‘L’ side of the building, the halls 1 to 3 are found, and passengers will arrive on the ground floor to collect their baggage. The check-in facilities are also located on the ground floor of this section of the airport. Hall 4 is at a right angle to the others, and is a single storey building connected to the other airport facilities by a lobby area. Passengers will find all the Nantes Airport car hire companies in a separate building just outside the arrivals area, and next to the car rental parking lot. The car hire buildings are located directly opposite from the passenger terminal. Hertz, at this rental location, is open from Monday to Friday between the hours of 07:00 and 22:30, and on Saturdays and Sundays from 08:00 to 22:30.
Although cars can be hired directly from the rental counters of Hertz, at Nantes Airport, passengers should rather organise their vehicle in advance, over the internet, in order to ensure its availability. It is also recommended to hire any additional items of equipment required in advance, for example, a child seat or the Hertz NeverLost In-Car Navigation System. However, in France, many of the Hertz vehicles come with a GPS unit included in their rental, which is a great advantage to all drivers who are unfamiliar with the Nantes region. There are many lovely small towns and cities in the surrounding areas, which can easily be located with a navigation system. Some of the cars from Hertz with a GPS include the Renault Megane Clio, the Renault Grand Espace ideal for seven passengers, the Mercedes Viano for nine passengers and the VW Touareg, which is an SUV.
Additional services by the Nantes Airport car rental companies may include hand controls for disabled drivers and one way hires, and from Hertz, Gold Counter service. At Nantes Airport, one way hires are available for customers who would prefer to return their vehicle to another rental location, which could be in France or even in another country. Hertz one way hires, or the Hertz Rent-It-Here and Leave-It-There service, does not usually have any extra charges, unless the vehicle is delivered to a location outside of France. Hertz hand controls are used by drivers with a lower limb disability, and may include a steering wheel knob. From Nantes Airport, hand controls should always be reserved in advance, at least 48 hours prior to your arrival, and are free of charge.
Gold Counter service is available at Nantes Airport for members of the Hertz #1 Club Gold, who are more frequent car renters. However, the Hertz #1 Club is available for all customers, even just occasional renters, and offers many time and money saving benefits. Club members enjoy the Hertz Instant Return service for faster vehicle returns and the Hertz Express service, for faster rentals and reservations. Hertz will also send these customers the details of all their discounts and promotions so that the best rental deals will be possible at all times. In order to enjoy even greater benefits with the Hertz #1 Club Gold, customers will need to have rented three or more times within a twelve month period.
Hertz is perhaps one of the more popular car rental companies as they offer three vehicle collections containing cars which can be specifically reserved by their makes and models. These collections are known as the Hertz Green, Fun and Prestige car groups. The Green collection is a range of environmentally friendly vehicles, which are fuel efficient as well. In the Fun Collection, the Smart For Two, Audi A1, Citroen C3, Alfa Romeo Mito, BMW 120D Luxe and various Mini Cooper models are available, while the Prestige Collection features the Volvo XC60, the Mercedes SLK, the Audi Q5 and the Audi A6. A wide selection of convertibles are available as well.
More ordinary vehicle choices from Hertz Nantes Airport include the Chevrolet Spark, Peugeot 107, Opel Corsa, Renault Megane and Opel Astra, or other similar vehicles. Customers at Hertz will need to be at least 21 years of age in order to rent a car, and will need to show a valid drivers license upon collection of the vehicle. A major credit card such as American Express, Diners Club, Mastercard and Visa will be used to pay for the rental period. Customers can contact Hertz, at Nantes Airport for all further rental details.
