The rental terms and conditions of the Perpignan Airport car rental companies are similar, but it is wise to read the specific terms which are related to your chosen car hire company before arriving at the airport. Budget’s are relatively simply to understand. All drivers registered on the rental agreement must meet the minimum age requirement of 21, however, certain vehicle categories can only be hired by persons over the age of 25. Younger drivers (persons under the age of 25) will pay higher rental rates (an extra EUR 25.00 per day for a maximum of ten rental days). This is the young driver surcharge added by the majority of the major car hire companies. Ensure that you have held your driving license for a minimum period of two years prior to the rental date, and that you have a major credit card for payment of the rental. The cards accepted by Budget are American Express, Diners Club, Eurocard, Mastercard, Visa and Budget Charge Cards. For certain car groups, two major credit cards are required.

From Perpignan Airport, one way hires and cross border traffic can be arranged, and there are certain regulations which need to be followed regarding these options as well. Rented cars are allowed to be driven to countries which include Italy, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium and Sweden, and will have no extra charges if returned to the country of France. Vehicles can be taken to the United Kingdom as well, provided that they are returned to the mainland. For Italy, cross border rentals are only allowed for the car groups of A, B, C and F. Budget one way hires are most convenient for travellers who will not be returning to Perpignan Airport, as it allows the vehicle to be delivered to an alternative rental location.

Besides just quality vehicles, customers may also hire additional items of equipment from Budget, such as child seats for children of all ages and satellite navigation systems, which will help lead you to any destination. For disabled drivers, Budget hand controls can also be requested for certain types of automatic vehicles. This device operates the brake and accelerator pedals of the vehicle, and may include a steering wheel knob. It does not operate any other vehicle functions, for example, the car lights, blinkers or windshield wipers. It is therefore ideal for use by persons with a lower limb disability. From Perpignan Airport, hand controls are available free of charge.
