Thrifty Car Rental Paris Orly Airport
Thrifty Paris Orly Airport
Paris Orly Airport is one of the largest airports in France, and also one of the busiest in Europe, with over 25 million passengers per annum. The airport is located south of the city in two departments, namely, Essonne and Val-de-Marne. It also straddles seven communes, including Orly, Wissous, Athis-Mons and Villeneuve-le-Roi. Orly Airport is recognised by its code of ORY, and is an airport extremely well equipped with all essential facilities for its passengers. There are also several transport options for arriving passengers, including rented cars from businesses such as Thrifty Paris Orly Airport. Thrifty is a well-known and well-liked car rental company, with many locations around the world. They are also popular for their competitive car hire rates.
Paris Orly Airport has two terminal buildings for arriving and departing passengers, and these terminals are referred to as the Orly South (Sud) and the Orly West (Ouest). Many of the Paris Orly Airport car hire companies are found in the arrivals area of both these terminals; however, the rental offices of Thrifty are actually located just off the airport’s site, at the Holiday Inn nearby. The address of this Thrifty location is 4 Avenue Charles Lindberg, Rungis. The majority of car hire companies with off-airport rental offices offer complimentary shuttle services to and from the airport, to make the car hire process simpler and easier for their customers. From Paris Orly Airport, the shuttle service will only take a few minutes, as the car hire company’s offices are very nearby the airport. Thrifty vehicles are then returned to the rental location, and the shuttle bus will be taken in order to reach the airport once more.
Thrifty, at Paris Orly Airport, is open every day of the week except for Sundays, and their hours from Mondays to Fridays are between 08:00 and 12:00, and from 14:00 to 18:00. On Saturdays, Thrifty is open from 08:00 to 12:00. Although Thrifty may always have plenty of vehicles available for hire, customers are recommended to make an advanced reservation, and to also book any additional item of equipment required in advance. These items may include a satellite navigation system, luggage racks or a child/baby seat for younger travellers. In France, law requires a child seat, as all passengers will need to be wearing seatbelts. Drivers who are unfamiliar with the road networks in France will find a GPS to be a great help, and will thoroughly enjoy the excellent features that are available on the system.
Additional equipment that will require an advanced reservation are the Thrifty hand controls for disabled drivers. The device is fitted to certain types of automatic vehicles, and operates the brake and accelerator pedals of the vehicle. It may also come with a steering wheel knob for additional assistance. From Paris Orly Airport, hand controls are free of charge, as well as other services for disabled renters, such as a designated driver for someone who is unable to drive due to disability.
Vehicles from the majority of the Paris Orly Airport car rental companies are divided into various car categories, and are booked and priced accordingly. From Thrifty, customers can choose between the Compact, Midsize, Fullsize and Fullsize Van categories, and the example vehicles within these car groups include the Peugeot 307, Renault Laguna, Peugeot 607 and the Fiat Ulysse. Smaller cars in the Compact category come with cheaper rental rates, while the larger vans are more expensive. However, try not to choose a vehicle that is too small for your luggage and passengers, as the journey could then be most uncomfortable. Thrifty may also offer the ‘Wild Car’ program, whereby customers will be allocated a midsize or larger vehicle upon their arrival at the rental counters, yet only pay rental rates which are lower than those usually offered for mid-size vehicles. Although customers will not know which car they will be driving, it is guaranteed to be excellent value for money, and the vehicle will have at least five seatbelts and room for two or more large luggage items.
From Thrifty, Paris Orly Airport, one way hires may be arranged, and are a good option for anyone who is not planning to return to the airport. A one way hire allows the customer to return the vehicle to another Thrifty rental location, either in France or even in another country. Vehicles that are delivered to another country may be more expensive to hire.
Thrifty is a worldwide car rental company, with thousands of rental locations in many different countries. They only offer the best quality vehicles, and those that are in a good overall condition. Vehicles are periodically renewed, and will therefore have low mileage, and minimal chance of experiencing mechanical failure.
