Europcar Car Rental at Perpignan
Europcar Perpignan Airport
Perpignan Airport is one of the important airports serving the southern regions of France, and is found just outside of the city of Perpignan. Although quite a small airport, with only around 400,000 passengers per annum, it is considered to be an important gateway to a variety of popular tourist destinations. It is only a few kilometres from the Mediterranean coastline, and also just forty kilometres from the Spanish border. The airport is considered as the logical link between northern and southern Europe, and is in the centre of the Euro-region. To best explore the wonderful surrounding areas a rented car is recommended. Europcar Perpignan Airport is one of the car hire companies available, and customers often choose Europcar for their competitive car rental rates and quality vehicles.
Perpignan Airport, with the official code of PGF, is otherwise referred to as the Llabanère Airport, or is officially known as the Perpignan-Rivesaltes Airport. It serves the city of Perpignan as well as many nearby towns in the Pyrénées-Orientales department of France. The airport consists of a single terminal building, which is capable of handling up to 700,000 passengers per annum, and is organised with the arrival area at one end of the concourse and the departure area at the other. The Perpignan Airport car hire companies can be found just outside of the arrival hall, and inside the passenger terminal. Along with Europcar, there are the companies of Hertz, Avis, Budget, Sixt, National and Auto Europa. Europcar, at this airport location, is open to meet the arrival flights of the airport, and is therefore a convenient choice. Their vehicles are also parked next to the terminal, in the P2 car park.
When collecting your vehicle from Europcar, ensure that you have all the documents required for car hire. All drivers must be present, and show their valid driving licenses. At Perpignan Airport, the minimum age for a vehicle from Europcar is only 18 for all categories, however, drivers younger than 25 will pay higher rental rates, as young driver insurance is a mandatory surcharge. Sometimes an International Driving Permit is required, along with other documents, such as an alternative form of identification, proof of residential address and a return airline ticket. It is best to confirm with Europcar all that is required before leaving for Perpignan Airport. It is also recommended to hire your car in advance, in order to ensure its availability.
Online is the easiest way to arrange a hire car, and can be done weeks or even months in advance of your business or leisure trip. Your quote from Europcar will include all licenses and fees associated with the vehicle and rental location, VAT and the mandatory airport surcharge, charged for all rentals which commence at airport car rental locations. Customers may also request to include insurance in their rental quotes. Collision damage waiver and theft protection are the most popular. Most car hire companies automatically include third party liability insurance in their quotes, and almost all vehicles come with unlimited mileage. Customers may also request the use of additional items of equipment, for example, a satellite navigation system and child seats. From the rental location of Perpignan Airport, hand controls for disabled drivers may also be available, and are used on certain types of automatic vehicles. Although other items will cost a few Euros per day of hire, Europcar hand controls are free of charge. Keep in mind that they do require an advanced reservation.
Upon returning your vehicle to the Perpignan Airport car rental company that you chose, you will either need to re-fuel the vehicle, or return it empty, depending on the fuel option that was taken at the beginning of the rental period. All cars are provided with a full tank of fuel, and customers who have purchased this tank upfront may return their cars empty, as no refunds are given for unused fuel. Shorter rentals allow customers to simply bring their vehicle back full, without the need to purchase fuel upfront. Customers who do not re-fuel their vehicles when it is required will pay additional fees to have the car hire company replace the fuel that was used. Return your car to the same car park at the airport. You will need to turn left at the sign marked as ‘Park Louers’. From Perpignan Airport, one way hires may be arranged from the majority of the car hire companies. This option allows customers to return their vehicle to a different rental location. Europcar one way hires may be driven to all parts of the country, as well as into other European countries, such as nearby Spain. Confirm with Europcar if there will be additional expenses for this service.
Europcar has an excellent selection of vehicles available for hire, and most come with good features, such as air conditioning and power steering. They are of all sizes, and are generally arranged into various car groups. The Mini and Economy categories provide vehicles which are light on fuel and eco-friendly, and are often popular choices for those without too much luggage to load. They are similar to the Renault Twingo, Peugeot 207 and Volkswagen Polo. The Polo is a car which runs on diesel. Larger vehicles include the Alfa Romeo Giulietta, Renault Laguna and the Volkswagen Touran with room for seven passengers. Vehicles larger in size such as this one are subject to low availability, and their reservations will be confirmed within 48 hours.
