Sixt Car Rental Nantes Airport
Sixt Nantes Airport
The airport of Nantes is officially known as the Nantes Atlantique Airport, and is situated approximately 8km, or 5 miles from the city centre of Nantes, France. This airport is the largest in the western regions of the country, although it only has a capacity to handle three million passengers per annum. It also has no more room for expansion; therefore a new airport is planned for construction in 2012, and will be about 30km from the city. For now however, passengers can rent a car from one of the Nantes Airport car hire companies, such as Sixt. Sixt is a worldwide car rental company, offering competitive prices and quality rental cars.
Nantes Airport has the official code of NTE, and is particularly nearby Bouguenais. The airport is well connected to major motorways, such as the N844, which is the city’s peripheral ring motorway, linking to all important roads leading to other cities nearby, such as Rennes, Angers and Cholet. A rented car from Sixt is therefore the best option for transport, as it allows more freedom to explore the area, and easily reach all remote and more important locations in the region. Driving within Nantes is also pleasant and reasonably easy. If possible, rent satellite navigation from Sixt as well, so that you can easily find any destination or attraction you wish to visit.
Sixt Nantes Airport is open from 07:00 to 20:00 during weekdays, and from 08:00 to 21:00 on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays. The car hire companies can be found outside and just opposite the terminal building of the airport, and are within easy walking distance of all the facilities. Nantes Airport consists of a single ‘L’ shaped terminal, with the longer side containing the majority of the airport halls. This side of the airport is also a double storey building; with baggage reclaim areas and check-in facilities on the ground floor, and all the departure lounges on the upper level. The shorter part of the ‘L’ contains Hall 4, and is a single storey construction linked to the rest of the airport by a lobby. Although arriving passengers can go directly to the Sixt rental counters to arrange their vehicle, it is most often recommended to make an advanced reservation, either over the telephone or the internet, from websites which support Sixt rental bookings.
Vehicles hired by the Nantes Airport car rental companies come in all shapes and sizes, and from Sixt, a wide range of car groups are available. There is sure to be a car which perfectly suits your holiday or business requirements. Single drivers or couples can hire a really small car from Sixt, such as the Smart For Two, or cars which are ideal for up to four passengers, with a bit more room for luggage, such as the Fiat 500, Fiat Punto, Renault Twingo and Peugeot 206. Smaller cars are generally much cheaper to rent, and are light on fuel, which also helps to save money. At this Sixt rental location, these vehicles will require the primary renter and additional drivers to be at least 21 years of age. A valid drivers license will need to be shown as well, upon collection of the vehicle.
Slightly larger compact cars include the Ford Fiesta, Opel Corsa, VW Polo and Seat Ibiza, while larger sedans may be similar to the VW Passat, Renault Laguna and Mercedes-Benz Classe B. These vehicles have a minimum age requirement of 23, and the drivers and renters will need to have held their licenses for at least two years prior to the rental date. Families renting from Sixt will enjoy the station wagons similar to the VW Passat Variant, the Volvo V50 Break, the BMW Serie 3 Touring and the Audi A4 Avant. Estate cars usually offer plenty of room for luggage, and are ideal cars for travelling. Certain vehicles from Sixt, Nantes Airport even include a GPS unit in their rentals, which is a wonderful option for anyone planning to travel the regions of France. These cars include the Mercedes-Benz Classe E, the BMW Serie 5 Touring and the Audi A7. Vans are also available from Sixt, with the Opel Zafira and Ford Focus C-Max ideal for five passengers, the Ford S-Max, Ford Galaxy and VW Sharan suitable for seven and the Renault Trafic available for up to nine travellers.
At Nantes Airport, one way hires can be arranged from the majority of the car rental companies, and are most convenient for passengers who are not planning to return to the airport. Perhaps your departure flight is from another airport, and it is therefore easier to return the car to that airport. Sixt one way hires may be driven to almost all countries in Europe, including the United Kingdom and islands nearby provided that they are returned to the mainland, and if returned within France, no additional costs will be applicable. Sixt hand controls may also be available, and from Nantes Airport, hand controls are free of charge but should be reserved in advance, as they are only fitted on certain types of automatic vehicles.
Sixt is an extremely innovative car hire company, with many options to help their customers save time and money. Customers fond of Sixt are recommended to apply for the Sixt Express Card, which will enable them to bypass the rental counters by using the Sixt Quick-Check-In terminals, and make easier reservations with the Sixt Mobile-Check-In and Sixt Online-Check-In services. More frequent renters receive even greater benefits with the Sixt Gold Card, and ladies are able to hire at the same corporate rental rates as their partners with the Sixt Ladies Card. At Nantes Airport, Sixt will be able to provide all further details regarding their exceptional car hire services.
