Avis Car Rental at Strasbourg
Avis Strasbourg Airport
Strasbourg Airport is an important gateway to the city of Strasbourg, one of the nine largest cities in France, and is located in the department of Bas-Rhin, at Entzheim. It is also just ten kilometres from the city centre of Strasbourg and nearby the border between France and Germany. The airport is therefore well linked to German cities as well. The airport has the official code of SXB, and in French is known as the Aéroport de Strasbourg. Car hire companies are available for arriving passengers, and one of these companies is Avis Strasbourg. Avis is an excellent provider of car rental services for business or leisure travellers, and is well know for their competitive rental rates.
The airport of Strasbourg has all the facilities that are required by its passengers, for example, airport lounges, a business centre, cash machines, shops and restaurants, lost luggage services, public telephones, free WiFi connections, information counters and facilities for disabled passengers. In the arrival area, which is part of the single terminal building, car rental companies have their offices. Avis is present, along with National, Sixt, Europcar, Auto Europa, Hertz, Alamo and Budget. At this rental location, Avis is open from Monday to Friday between the hours of 07:30 and 21:30, on Saturdays from 09:00 to 13:30 and on Sundays from 15:30 to 19:00. Although Avis is not open twenty-four hours a day at the airport, they are available to meet most arrival flights, and may offer out-of-office hour returns.
Passengers collecting a vehicle from Avis will need to have their drivers licenses on hand, and all drivers who are registered on the rental agreement should be present. The minimum age to rent a car from this location is 21 for all car groups except for the following, which will require the renter to be at least 25 years of age: E (Fullsize), F (Standard), G (Convertible), M, N and O (Vans). Persons younger than 25 will also need to pay higher rental rates, as 25.00 Euro is added to the rental per day for young drivers insurance. This insurance has a maximum amount of 250.00 Euro per driver. Avis will ask for one of the major credit cards when it comes time to pay for the rental, such as American Express, Diners Club, Eurocard / Mastercard, or Visa (except for Kyriel, Maestro, Indigo or Electron). Certain customers may also be eligible for Avis Charge Cards.
Insurance for vehicles hired from the Strasbourg Airport car hire companies are optional, but they are recommended. Collision damage waiver and theft protection can be purchased locally from Avis in order to reduce, or even remove, the insurance excess. All further details can be acquired from the Avis rental counters at Strasbourg Airport. One way hires are possible options from Avis, and are when the vehicle is returned to a different car rental location to the one from where it was collected. Avis one way hires can be driven to all parts of France, and may even be cross-border rentals, and taken to various other countries. However, hire cars may not be taken to Greece, Turkey, Eastern Europe, Commonwealth of Independent States and Baltic States. Vehicles hired may be taken to the United Kingdom, and to the islands of Corsica and Sardinia, provided that they are returned to the mainland. One way hires and/or cross-border rentals may be more expensive than an ordinary rental.
Vehicles hired from Avis are divided into various car rental categories, and may be of small or large models. The smaller cars are similar to the Renault Twingo, Opel Corsa and Citroen C3, found in the Subcompact and Economy categories, and Intermediate and Standard cars are larger, and may include the Citroen C5, Mercedes Classe C, Renault Scenic and the Citroen Grand Picasso C4, which is a car able to seat up to seven passengers. All vehicles come with air conditioning, and the larger sedans have room for five passengers and at least a few luggage items. The smaller cars don’t offer much room for luggage, but are good choices for city driving, or for single drivers or couples. Avis hires luxury vehicles as well, similar to the Mercedes Classe E, and Vans for seven or nine passengers, such as the Opel Zafira, Renault Espace and Renault Traffic Combi.
Families travelling with babies or toddlers should organize a child seat from Avis, in advance of their arrival, and the age of the child should be provided so that Avis can reserve the correct size of seat for your rental. Satellite navigation systems are available as well, and Avis hand controls for disabled drivers are useful for persons with a lower limb disability. The device is free of charge from the car rental companies at the airport. Hand controls will, however, need to be requested in advance, as they must be fitted to the correct type of automatic vehicle.
More frequent Avis renters, or anyone who is fond of Avis’ services, can become an Avis Preferred Member, and enjoy a wide range of benefits each time a hire car is needed. Many time and money saving options are available, and the membership is free of charge. Find out more details from Avis Strasbourg.
