Hertz Car Rental at Strasbourg

The airport is located approximately 10km from the city of Strasbourg, which is one of the nine largest cities in France. The airport is found in an important position alongside the border between France and Germany, and therefore serves a variety of nearby cities in both countries. It is recognised by it’s official code of SXB, and handles over a million passengers per annum. Railway connections are available, but many passengers like to rent a car, from one of the car hire companies such as Hertz Strasbourg Airport. Hertz is well known around the world for providing quality car rental services, and for their wide range of vehicles for hire.

The car rental companies are usually open to meet the majority of the airport arrival flights.
Hertz is often a popular choice as they offer cars that can be more specifically booked by their makes and models. This means that the customer will know exactly which car he/she will be driving, and is able to select a vehicle that is most suitable for the journey. In the Hertz Green Collection, the VW Polo, Opel Corsa and Renault Megane Clio SW are available, and the Hertz Fun Collection has a wide range of smaller cars, sporty models and convertibles. They include the Smart For Two, Fiat 500, Audi A1, Nissan Juke Tekna, Volkswagen Golf Convertible, Mini Cooper, Alfa Romeo Giulietta and the BMW Series 1 118D Sport. The third category available from where vehicles can be more specifically hired is known as the Hertz Prestige Collection, and it contains vehicles manufactured by Volvo, Mercedes, Audi and BMW. They may be ideal for business travellers in need of a more elegant vehicle, or for anyone who prefers to drive something a little more stylish than the usual rented car.
Besides these special cars, Hertz also offers vehicles from the Standard Car category, such as the Peugeot 107, Chevrolet Spark, Opel Astra, Renault Megane, Ford C-Max and the Opel Insignia. These cars are ideal for all types of driving, and are rented with reasonable rates. Passengers could also select an SUV such as the Chevrolet Captiva, or a van similar to the Citroen C8 and Opel Vivaro for nine passengers. Regardless of the vehicle you require, but especially for larger or less common vehicle models, an advanced reservation is recommended from any of the car hire companies. Over the internet is the best way to hire a car, as it is convenient, and often results in cheaper rental rates.
Along with your vehicle from Hertz, remember to include any additional item of equipment required, and insurance for the vehicle, such as collision damage waiver and theft protection. These insurances are optional, but recommended. The Hertz NeverLost In-Car Navigation System can be hired, and is a device that will guide you to any destination in France, or in another country. It has continuous road maps, a colour touch screen and an extensive list of pre-programmed points of interest. The GPS units come with a choice of a few languages and provide accurate directions in voice or visual mode. Child seats are also available, and are essential for the safety of younger family members. Child seats are also required by law in France. Hand controls for disabled drivers could be requested by someone with a lower limb disability.

A frequent renter, as defined by Hertz, is someone who has rented a car three or more times in a twelve month period. Occasional renters, however, can join the Hertz #1 Club, and also benefit from a number of time and money saving options. The Hertz Express and Hertz Instant Return services are available to club members, and they will be the first to hear of any special rates and promotions offered by the company.
Hertz one way hires are convenient for renters who do not plan to return to the location. The service can also be referred to as the Hertz Rent-It-Here and Leave-It-There option, and allows the vehicle to be delivered to another rental location, either in the country of France or even in a different country. Since that Strasbourg is so closely located to Germany, customers may require a cross-border rental for access to this country. One way hires could be more expensive, but are perhaps a more convenient option for some.
