Hertz Car Rental at Rodez
Hertz Rodez Airport
Rodez Airport is located approximately 12km, or 7 miles northwest of Rodez, the capital city of the Aveyron department of France. The airport is quite small, with under 200,000 passengers per annum, but is an important gateway for the Hérault, Gard, Lozère, Cantal and other nearby departments. It is also commonly referred to as the Marcillac Airport, and is considered to be one of the airports of the country with significant possibility for further growth and development. Arriving passengers can hire a car from Rodez Airport, as car hire companies such as Hertz are available. Hertz Rodez Airport is popular for their reasonable car rental rates and high quality vehicles.
The single terminal building of Rodez Airport is adequately equipped with facilities, and is large enough to accommodate the number of passengers which pass through it on a yearly basis. The terminal was actually recently extended to further facilitate the airport’s operations. The upgrade to the building included more parking spaces and a new boarding lounge. In the main area, passengers will find the Rodez Airport car hire companies, which include Hertz, Avis, National, Europcar and Alamo. Car hire is particularly popular from this airport location, as there are no bus or train services available. The rental counters of Hertz are open Monday from 10:00 to 10:30, Tuesday from 10:00 to 10:30 and from 14:00 to 14:30, Wednesday from 10:00 to 10:30, Thursday from 10:00 to 10:30 and from 14:00 to 14:30, Friday from 10:00 to 10:30, Saturday from 14:00 to 14:30 and on Sundays Hertz is closed.
Even though Hertz is not open around the clock, they are available to meet the arrival flights of the airport, and advanced reservations can be arranged online. An earlier booking will often result in lower prices, and will bring peace of mind in knowing that your ideal car is ready for your arrival. Although the rental counters will most likely need to be open for the collection of the vehicle, an out-of-office hours return may be possible, whereby the keys to the rented car can simply be left in a drop-off box. Cars also do not need to be returned to Rodez Airport. One way hires can be organized for the majority of car groups, and may even be free of charge if the vehicle is returned within the country of France. Hire cars can be driven to other European countries as well, such as those which border France, for example, Italy, Spain, Switzerland and Belgium. Hertz one way hires may also be referred to as the Hertz Rent-It-Here and Leave-It-There service, and it may be useful for those travelling more extensively.
When arriving at Hertz, ensure that you have your valid driving license with you, and that all drivers registered on the contract are present. The driving license will need to have been held by you in your country of residence for at least a year prior to the rental date, and if it is not printed in a Roman alphabet, an International Driving Permit may be required. This document is obtained from the authorities in your home country, and will need to be arranged before you leave for Rodez Airport. In order to hire a car, the primary renter and all additional drivers will need to be at least 21 years of age. Some car categories may require the renter to be 25 years of age or over. If you are hiring your car in advance, a flight number must be provided to Hertz.
At the Rodez Airport car rental companies the vehicles available are generally divided into various categories, and from Hertz, cars can even be hired by their specific makes and models from certain categories. In the Green Collection, cars are fuel efficient and eco-friendly, and can be more specifically chosen. They include the VW Polo, Opel Corsa, Peugeot 308 and the Renault Megane Clio SW. Other categories popular from Hertz include the Fun and the Prestige Collection, with vehicles such as the Smart For Two, Audi A1, Fiat 500, BMW Series 1 Convertible, Audi Q5, Volvo XC90, Mercedes E220 and the Mercedes Viano, which includes a GPS in its rental, and has room for up to eight passengers.

Hertz hand controls are used on certain types of automatic vehicles, and are fitted in order to operate the brake and accelerator pedals of the vehicle. From Rodez Airport, hand controls will require an advanced reservation, at least forty-eight hours in advance of the agreed vehicle collection time.
