Auto Europa Car Rental at Strasbourg
Auto Europa Strasbourg Airport
Strasbourg is found in France, nearby to the border of Germany, and is quite a large airport serving just over a million passengers per annum. In previous years, it even saw over two million passengers a year. It has the official IATA code of SXB, and is located in Entzheim, in the department of Bas-Rhin. The airport is also only ten kilometres from the city centre of Strasbourg. There are trains available for the transport of arriving passengers, as well as car hire companies, such as Auto Europa Strasbourg, which offer quality vehicles for hire. Auto Europa is well known in Europe for providing low rental rates.
The airport consists of one passenger terminal adequate in size for the number of passengers which pass through it on a yearly basis, as it has the capacity for up to 2.5 million passengers per annum. It has an arrival and a departure area, both located on the upper and ground floor level of the building, and arriving passengers will find the car rental companies in the arrival area. Auto Europa is open seven days a week, at times which are convenient for their customers. Their hire cars are also parked nearby to the terminal building. Vehicles from Auto Europa are recommended to be hired in advance, as private transportation can be in high demand. Reservations can conveniently be made online.
Auto Europa is a company with over fifty years of experience in the car rental industry, and has successfully established over 8,000 rental locations in more than one hundred and thirty countries around the world. Their vehicles are only of the latest model, ensuring their customers a safe and reliable journey, wherever their destination. All vehicles, besides a few luxury models and convertibles, are also hired with unlimited mileage, which means that you can travel the country without worrying about the additional costs of kilometres travelled. For longer rentals, however, customers may need to purchase a tank of fuel, but then may return their vehicle as empty as possible. Shorter rentals may just require the customer to return the car with a full tank, as it was rented. If Auto Europa re-fuels the vehicle, additional costs may be applicable.
Auto Europa’s vehicles may come with a basic or all-inclusive rental rate. The basic rate covers mandatory public liability insurance, fire insurance and VAT, while the all-inclusive rate covers the same, as well as optional collision damage waiver insurance and optional theft insurance. Their rates do not include the mandatory surcharge for rentals commencing at airport locations and any road tax/registration fees that are paid locally. The price of the rental will also depend on the age of the primary renter and additional drivers, as young drivers insurance may be applicable to all who are under the age of 25. This is an amount paid per day of car hire, and per underage driver listed on the rental agreement, usually up to a maximum amount or number of rental days. Additional drivers will also cost a few extra Euros.
Car hire companies usually offer a range of equipment which can be hired along with their vehicles, and child seats and satellite navigation systems are two of the most popular items requested. Since that these items are optional, they will also not be included in your quote. Free however, are Auto Europa hand controls for disabled drivers, and a person unable to drive due to disability can still be the primary renter with a free additional driver who holds a valid drivers license. Hand control equipment will require an advanced reservation, at least forty-eight hours prior to your arrival, as it is only used on certain types of automatic vehicles.
Vehicles could also be arranged as an Auto Europa one way hire, and be returned to a different car rental location. Most vehicles can be driven to all parts of France, and even to other countries, such as nearby Germany, Belgium or Switzerland. Keep in mind that a special tax sticker must be purchased when travelling on the highways of Switzerland. From the rental companies at Strasbourg Airport, one way hires are convenient for certain travel itineraries, but may incur additional charges.
Auto Europa will require their primary renter to be at least 21 years of age, and to have valid drivers license. Sometimes, an International Driving Permit should accompany the local license. The primary renter should also be the holder of a major credit card. When driving in France, obey the speed limits indicated on the signs, and never drink and drive. Seatbelts should be worn at all times, and drivers should not talk on a cellular phone whilst operating the vehicle. The road network of France is very good, with all the main roads well maintained. There are a number of large roads leading to a variety of cities and towns nearby Strasbourg. Cars can be quite easily driven in the city as well, but perhaps not in the historical centre, where there are some ‘pedestrian-only’ roads. Here the attractions are best explored on foot.
