Europcar Car Rental at Strasbourg
Europcar Strasbourg Airport
Strasbourg is a public airport in Entzheim, just 10km from the large city of Strasbourg. It serves over a million passengers per annum, and is one of the main airports in France. Flights are available from this airport to Paris, Lyon, Nantes, Amsterdam, Madrid and Casablanca, as well as many other destinations. The airline companies here include Air France, Brussels Airlines, Iberia, Tunisair and others. Arriving passengers will find a well equipped airport terminal, with facilities that include car hire companies such as Europcar Strasbourg. Vehicles from Europcar are in good condition, and the car rental rates offered by this company are competitive.
Car rental companies are located in the single terminal building of the airport, and are available to meet the majority of arrival flights. Vehicles can be hired directly over the rental counters of Europcar, or in advance, from an online website which supports Europcar reservations. Online, and in advance, is often considered preferable, as then your ideal car is guaranteed to be waiting for your arrival. It is also recommended to make an earlier booking if a special type of vehicle is required, for example, a large van or a convertible, as these cars may not always be available.
From Europcar, vehicle accessories are available as well, and are best to be reserved in advance. If you are travelling with a child of four years of age or younger, it is wise to hire a car seat, and anyone unfamiliar with the road network surrounding Strasbourg Airport will benefit from the hire of a satellite navigation system. The equipment hired is of a high quality, and can only ensure a safer and easier journey in France. Disabled drivers also have options from the airport car rental companies, as hand controls may be available. Europcar hand controls for disabled drivers are useful to persons with a lower limb disability, and may be requested free of charge. Hand controls will require an advanced reservation.
Family cars from Europcar come in a range of sizes. The smallest is the Fiat 500 in the Mini category, and the largest is the Mercedes Vito with space for nine passengers. The smaller cars are less expensive to hire, and are often considered as eco-friendly. They are also easy to drive (if you know how to operate a manual transmission) and light on fuel. Their only drawback is room for luggage, which may be inadequate. Vehicles in Europcar’s Economy category may be similar to the Peugeot 207 and Volkswagen Polo, while those in the Compact category include the Renault Megane. The VW Polo is a car that uses diesel, and not petrol. Always find out from Europcar which type of fuel is best for your vehicle. Intermediate and Standard cars are little larger, and usually seat between four and five passengers. They also offer some room for luggage. From these categories the Volkswagen Golf, Renault Laguna and Renault Scenic can be hired. If you need room for seven, the Volkswagen Touran or the Renault Espace will be ideal.
Car hire companies offer their customers many services, including one way hires and cross-border rentals. Since that the airport is so closely located to the border between France and Germany, passengers may like to drive their car into this country as well, and will therefore arrange a cross-border rental. Europcar one way hires are convenient for passengers who would like a different delivery location for their vehicle, and who will not be driving back to the airport. One way hires may need an earlier booking, and may be more expensive than an ordinary rental.
The car rental quote provided by Europcar will include all licenses and fees associated with the vehicle and/or location, the mandatory airport surcharge and VAT. The cars are also hired with unlimited mileage and emergency breakdown assistance can be provided. Europcar should be contacted immediately if anything goes wrong with the vehicle, or if an accident occurred. A replacement vehicle may be provided if the vehicle cannot be driven further. Before leaving the airport, ensure that you know how to operate the vehicle, and that you have the emergency numbers to contact. The vehicle will also begin the rental with a full tank of fuel, and if the customer purchased fuel from Europcar, the vehicle can be returned as empty as possible, as no refunds are given for unused fuel. If fuel was not purchased, the customer should bring it back full to avoid any re-fuelling charges.
All primary renters and additional drivers should meet the minimum requirements of the rental location. From Europcar, persons just eighteen years of age or older may hire a vehicle, provided that they have a valid drivers license and a major credit card. Higher rental rates, for young drivers insurance, will however, be applicable to anyone younger than the age of 25. Certain car hire companies also do not permit younger drivers to hire some of their vehicle categories that contain larger or specialty type vehicles. Europcar accepts most local licenses, but find out if an International Driving Permit is required for your rental. The credit cards of American Express, Diners Club, Eurocard, Mastercard and Visa can be used.
Europcar Strasbourg will be able to provide further car rental assistance.
