Sixt Perpignan Airport

Perpignan Airport is found nearby the southern border of France and Spain, and only a few kilometres from the Mediterranean Sea. It serves the city of Perpignan, and other areas in the Pyrénées-Orientales department of the country. The airport is not very large, with only around 400,000 passengers per annum, but is nonetheless served by a few airline companies that have scheduled flights to national and international destinations. The official name of Perpignan Airport is the Perpignan-Rivesaltes Airport, due to its location nearby the commune of Rivesaltes, and it has the official airport code of PGF. There are car rental companies at the airport, including Sixt Perpignan Airport, for all customers who like a private vehicle to drive. Sixt is well known for offering innovative car rental services, and good value for money.

Perpignan Airport, located just 5km, or 3 miles from the town centre of Perpignan, is considered to be in an important location, in the middle of the Euroregion, and nearby to three, more prominent cities, namely, Toulouse, Montpellier and Barcelona (Spain). Passengers arriving at the airport will only have to navigate a single terminal building, with all facilities within easy walking distance, and will find the Perpignan Airport car rental companies just outside of the arrival hall, on the ground floor. The rental counters of Sixt are open every day of the week, from 09:15 to 22:45, and are even open on bank holidays at the same hours. Customers can go directly to Sixt at the airport to arrange their vehicle, or make an advanced reservation, which is most often recommended. An early reservation is useful for when you need additional items of equipment for your journey as well, such as child seats or a satellite navigation system, as these items may not always be available upon your arrival. Disabled customers requiring Sixt hand controls will need an advanced reservation as well, at least forty eight hours prior to arrival at Perpignan Airport. Hand controls are hired free of charge, but other items will be extra.

Collecting and returning your rented car from Perpignan Airport is quite simple. You will need to show a valid driving license at the Sixt rental counters, and perhaps other documents, such as proof of a residential address and a return airline ticket. You must be at least 21 years of age, and have been driving legally in your country of residence for at least a year prior to the rental date. In some cases, an International Driving Permit is also required. Payments are made by a major credit card, for example, American Express, Diners Club, Eurocard, Mastercard or Visa. Sixt will give you a reservation booklet, which will indicate the number of the parking bay of your vehicle, and you will find the cars in the P2 car park just next to the terminal. Ensure that you are comfortable with the workings of the vehicle, and that you know which type of fuel to use before you leave the airport. You should also have the emergency numbers to contact in case of an accident or breakdown.

Although the Perpignan Airport car hire companies are mostly open for all arriving or departing flights, an out-of-office hours return may be possible to arrange. Sixt one way hires are another option for all customers, and for the majority of vehicles which can be hired from Perpignan Airport. One way hire services allow the customer to deliver their vehicle to a different Sixt rental location, sometimes with and sometimes without, extra charges. The cost of this type of rental will mainly depend on the return location, and on the length of the rental. Most hire cars may be driven to a variety of countries in Europe, and to all regions of France. If your car is being returned to the airport, look out for the signs which indicate ‘Park Louers’, that will lead you to the rental car park. If you have purchased fuel upfront, return your car as empty as possible, but if you haven’t, fill the car before returning it to the airport, as it will be more expensive if done by the rental location. The vehicle will also need to be checked for any damages.

Hire cars from Sixt can be small or large, depending on your needs, and are generally all in good condition. They are only of the latest models, and come with many interesting and useful features. Small cars ideal for four passengers include the Fiat 500, Renault Twingo, Ford Fiesta, Opel Corsa and Fiat Punto, while the larger cars and vans from Sixt include the VW Passat Variant, Volvo V50 Break, Ford Mondeo Turnier, Opel Zafira, Ford Focus C-Max, VW Touran, Ford Galaxy, VW Sharan and the Renault Trafic. Keep in mind that many of the larger or specialty type vehicles will require the primary renter and all additional drivers to be 23 or 25 years of age or older. Certain cars similar to the Mercedes-Benz Classe S and BMW Serie 7 even require the renter to be 28 years of age or older, and to have been driving for five years. Vehicles from Sixt may include a satellite navigation system in their rentals as well.

The Sixt Express Card is available for all customers, whether they are frequent or only occasional renters. It allows access to some very innovative options, and is free of charge. Sixt Express customers can bypass the rental counters by using the Sixt Quick-Check-In terminals (your rental contract completed in just three easy steps), and can quickly make reservations by using the Sixt Mobile-Check-in and Sixt Online-Check-In services.
