Avis Car Rental at Rodez
Avis Rodez Airport
Rodez Airport is operated by the Chambre du Commerce et d’Industrie de Rodez, and is a small, public French airport that is located approximately 12km, or 7 miles from the city of Rodez. The airport mainly serves this city, but provides access to many other towns in the Aveyron department, as well as those in the departments of Hérault, Gard, Lozère, Cantal, Tarn, Tarn-et-Garonne and Lot. Only around 140,000 passengers use this airport every year. Since there are no buses for transport from Rodez Airport, car hire is a popular option for many visitors. Avis is one of the companies available, and is able to provide high quality vehicles at very reasonable car rental rates.
Avis Rodez Airport have their rental counters in the single terminal building that was extended in 2009, to include a new boarding lounge and more parking spaces for private vehicles. The airport building is small and easy to navigate, and arriving passengers will have no trouble in locating the car rental companies. At this airport, Avis is open during the following hours: Monday to Friday – 09:00 to 12:00 and from 13:30 to 21:15, Saturday – 09:00 to 12:00 and on Sundays from 17:00 to 18:00 and from 20:00 to 21:15. The rented cars of Avis are parked in a nearby car parking lot, and are within easy walking distance of the terminal.
At all of the Rodez Airport car rental companies, which also include Hertz, Europcar, National, Alamo and Auto Europa, certain terms and conditions need to be met. It is wise to discuss these in full with your car hire company before arranging a vehicle, and ensure that you understand all the policies surrounding insurance for the vehicle, to where the vehicle may be driven and the minimum requirements for the rental of a vehicle. Avis’ terms and conditions are similar to other major companies in this industry, and are quite simple to understand. In general, the minimum requirements for the primary renter and all additional drivers are as follows: The drivers should be 21 years of age or older, be in possession of a valid driving license, and should have a major credit card, for example, American Express, Diners Club, Mastercard / Eurocard, Visa (except Kyriel, Maestro, Indigo or Electron) and Avis Charge Cards.
For certain car groups, which include E (Fullsize), F (Standard), G (Convertible), M, N and O (Vans), the drivers will need to be 25 years of age or older, and perhaps have held their licenses for two years or more in their country of residence. All drivers younger than 25 will pay a little extra for young drivers insurance. This amount is around 25.00 Euro per day for a rental from Avis, up until a maximum of ten rental days. Keep in mind that for some rentals, an International Driving Permit will be required, especially in the case when the local license is printed in a non-Roman alphabet. Avis’ insurance policies are optional, but recommended, and collision damage waiver and theft protection can be arranged at Avis Rodez Airport in order to reduce, or even remove the insurance excess.
Avis one way hires and cross-border rentals are permitted from Rodez Airport. One way hire services are most often chosen by customers who are travelling more extensively, and by those who are leaving from a different airport or train station location, as it allows the vehicle to be delivered elsewhere. Vehicles hired from Avis can be driven to all cities in France, and can be taken across the French border to countries such as Belgium, Switzerland, Italy, Germany and Spain. It is only Greece, Turkey, Eastern Europe, Commonwealth of Independent States and Baltic States where vehicles may not be driven. Vehicles may also not travel to the Republic of Ireland. Rented cars may be driven in the United Kingdom, and on the islands of Corsica and Sardinia, provided that they are returned to the mainland. One way hires and cross-border rentals may be more expensive than usual, and may also require an advanced reservation. Although Rodez is only a small airport, it is always recommended to arrange your car in advance of your arrival.
The company of Avis Car Rental provides various items of equipment which can be hired for the rented cars, for example, GPS units, luggage racks, child seats and hand controls for disabled drivers. Avis hand controls are free of charge, but all the other items will cost a few extra Euro per day of hire. A satellite navigation system is ideal for use by all drivers who are unfamiliar with this region of France, and child seats are recommended for the safety of younger travellers. From Rodez Airport, hand controls should be requested at least forty-eight hours in advance of your arrival, and are ideally used by those with a lower limb deficiency, because they are designed to operate the brake and accelerator pedals of an automatic vehicle. The device may also include a steering wheel knob for additional assistance.
Avis, at their French car rental locations, offer a wide range of quality vehicles. Smaller rentals are less expensive, and may be similar to the Renault Twingo, Opel Corsa and Citroen C3, while larger vans come with a higher price tag, and include the Citroen Grand Picasso C4, Opel Zafira, Renault Espace and the Renault Traffic Combi. Vehicles in between of the smaller and larger variety include the Peugeot 308, BMW Series 1 and Citroen C5. There are also more elegant vehicles for hire, such as the Mercedes Class C, and convertibles, such as the Renault Megane CC.
