Europcar Car Rental at Rodez
Europcar Rodez Airport
Rodez Airport serves the city of Rodez, as well as all towns in the Aveyron department of France. The airport also provides a gateway to the areas within the Tarn, Tarn-et-Garonne, Gard, Lot, Hérault, Lozère and Cantal departments. It is a growing airport, but currently handles only around 140,000 passengers per annum. Air France and Ryanair have flights to and from this airport, which is also referred to as the Marcillac Airport. It is officially recognised by its code of RDZ. There are no public bus or train services available directly from the airport, therefore many passengers take the option of a rented car, from one of the Rodez Airport car hire companies, such as Europcar. Europcar can provide a wide range of vehicles, at various affordable car rental rates, and have been a favourite car hire company for many years.
Rodez Airport has a single terminal building, with a variety of facilities which can be expected at an airport of this size, and the car hire companies of the airport are found nearby the arrival area. They can be easily accessed from all parts of the airport building, and are generally open when there are arrival flights expected. Europcar Rodez Airport is available at suitable times for their customers, and may also be open over weekends and on public holidays, however, it is best to confirm the time of vehicle collection with the company in advance of your arrival. It is also recommended to hire a car online, as early as possible, in order to secure the cheapest rental rates. Car hire is often compared to booking a seat on an airplane – the earlier the reservation the more money you could save. However, vehicles can be hired directly from Europcar, at Rodez Airport.
The rented cars can be found in a parking area on the airport grounds, and are within easy walking distance of the terminal. No further form of transport is therefore required in order to reach your vehicle. Your car will have a full tank of fuel, and should be checked by you and by staff of Europcar for any existing damages. Upon its return, it is checked again, and you will be held liable for any damages not previously recorded. Always find out which type of fuel your vehicle will require, as it could be diesel or petrol, and find out if you will need to bring the car back full or empty. If fuel is purchased upfront, the car can usually be returned empty. Try to use as much of the fuel as you can, because no refunds are given for unused fuel. From Rodez Airport, one way hires are possible to arrange, which allow the vehicle to be returned to a different rental location. Europcar one way hires could incur additional charges.
In order to hire a car from one of the Rodez Airport car rental companies, you will need to have a valid drivers license that has been held in your country of residence for at least a year prior to the rental date, and be the holder of a major credit card, for example, American Express, Diners Club, Eurocard, Mastercard or Visa. Sometimes charge cards are available from the car rental company concerned. However, Europcar customers at this rental location will need to be just eighteen years of age or older to rent any vehicle, although, renters younger than 25 will still pay the usual fee for young drivers insurance. This is a small amount added to each day of car hire, and for each ‘underage’ driver listed on the rental agreement, up until a maximum of ten rental days. In regards to the driving license, find out from Europcar if your local license will be accepted, or if an International Driving Permit will be required. This is usually the case if the customer’s license is printed in a non-Roman alphabet.
The Mini and Economy car categories from Europcar often offer vehicles with the best rental rates, however, some may consider them to be on the small side, as they don’t have much room for luggage. Families may prefer a car from the Standard or Intermediate categories, which offer more interior space. Examples of smaller cars rented from Europcar include the Renault Twingo, Peugeot 207 and the Volkswagen Polo, while larger cars could be similar to the Renault Scenic or Renault Laguna. Vans are also available for hire that seat seven or more people. They include the VW Touran with space for seven, the Renault Espace, also with room for seven, and the Mercedes Vito, a van able to accommodate up to nine passengers. The Mercedes is also listed as one of Europcar’s Luxury and Specialty vehicles, as well as the Audi A4 Berline. Keep in mind that larger or specialty type vehicles are subject to low availability, and their reservation will be confirmed only in forty-eight hours by Europcar.
A quote from Europcar, Rodez Airport, will include all licenses and fess associated with the vehicle and rental location, the mandatory airport surcharge applicable to rentals which commence from such locations, and VAT. Insurance may be included at the customer’s request, as well as all other items of equipment, such as child seats and GPS units. Europcar hand controls for disabled drivers are free of charge, and are fitted to suitable automatic vehicles. The device operates the brake and accelerator pedals of the vehicle, but not any other functions, for example, the car’s lights, windshield wipers and blinkers. From Rodez Airport, hand controls will require an advanced reservation.
