Alamo Rodez Airport

Rodez Airport is one of the smaller airports in southern France, and serves part of the Midi-Pyrénées region of the country. It falls under the department of Aveyron, and is found just 12km, or 7 miles from the city of Rodez. Although it handles just 140,000 passengers per year, it is a well equipped establishment, and considered to be an important gateway to many of the nearby towns and cities. Alamo Rodez Airport is one of the car rental companies available for those who wish to hire a car, and has been known for many years to provide friendly service of a high quality. Alamo is often preferred by those who are in need of a vehicle for leisure purposes.

At Rodez Airport, Alamo’s hours of operation are on weekdays from 08:30 to 19:00. Alamo is closed over weekends. These times should just be used as a general guideline, and the time of your vehicle collection or drop-off should be confirmed with Alamo. A car hired in advance of your arrival will often be less expensive than one hired directly over the rental counters, therefore find an online site which supports Alamo car rental reservations, and try to book as early as possible. One can often cancel a vehicle request free of charge provided that it is not within a certain time period before the collection date. Alamo can provide all further details. The Rodez Airport car hire counters are found in the single terminal building, and are generally open at times of arrival flights. Their vehicles are parked in a nearby parking lot.

Upon collection of your vehicle, provide Alamo with your valid drivers license, and ensure that all drivers listed on the rental agreement are present, and meet the minimum age requirements of the location, which is 21 years of age or older. Certain vehicle categories will require the drivers to be 25 years of age or older, and are usually those which contain larger vehicle models or specialty car such as convertibles. The licenses presented should be printed in English, however, an International Driving Permit will be accepted for those which are in a non-Roman alphabet. Keep in mind that all drivers that are younger than 25 will pay an additional fee for young drivers insurance, which is usually around 25.00 Euro per day, up until a maximum of ten rental days. It will be essential that the primary renter has a major credit card in his/her own name, for payment of the rental, as debit cards or cash are not accepted. Once the formalities are completed, Alamo will instruct you as to the whereabouts of your vehicle, and there will be a vehicle check carried out to pinpoint any existing damages the car may have.

Vehicles hired from the Rodez Airport car rental companies will have full tanks of fuel, and will need to be returned with a full tank if the customer did not purchase fuel at the beginning of the rental period. If fuel is purchased, the car can be returned empty to the same parking area at Rodez Airport. One way hire services are an option for anyone who would rather not drive back to this airport location, but deliver their car to another Alamo rental station. Alamo one way hires could have additional expenses, but may also be free of charge, especially if the vehicle is returned within the country of France. Rented cars are often permitted to be driven out of the country, and may also be taken to the United Kingdom and to the nearby islands, provided that they are returned to the mainland. Insurances purchased for the vehicle will be valid at these locations, but another vehicle cannot be provided should a breakdown occur.

Alamo’s vehicles for hire could be similar to the following: The Peugeot 207 1.4 in the Economy category, the Peugeot 308 1.6 in the Compact Wagon category, the Ford Mondeo or Peugeot 1.6 in the Midsize category, the VW Passat 1.8 as a Standard vehicle, the Audi A4 1.9 as a Fullsize vehicle and the Mercedes C200 CDI 2.0 as a Fullsize Wagon. Some of the car groups have vehicles which include a GPS navigation system in their rentals, which is most useful for all travellers who are unfamiliar with the region, and most have some very nice features, such as air conditioning, anti-lock brakes, driver and passenger airbags, power steering, folding rear seats and cruise control. There are also larger cars available from Alamo, which are classified as Vans or SUVs, and include the Citroen Grand Picasso C4 2.0, Citroen C8 2.0, Citroen Jumpy 2.2 and the Ford Kuga 2.0. Premium Sport and Luxury vehicles are available as well.

Alamo hires additional items of equipment with their vehicles, which means that if your rental does not include a GPS, one can be requested. Child seats for babies and young children are also available. Alamo hand controls can be requested for disabled drivers with a lower limb disability, and can be hired free of charge. However, from the rental location of Rodez Airport, hand control equipment will require an advanced reservation, as they will need to be fitted to the correct type of vehicle.
