Auto Europa Car Rental at Toulon
Auto Europa Toulon Airport
Toulon Airport is one of the airports found in the popular Provence-Alpes Cote d’Azur region of France, and is nearby to the city of Toulon. It is also just 3km from Hyères, and is therefore otherwise known as the Toulon-Hyères Airport, with the official code of TLN. The airport serves towns and cities in the Var department of the country and towns of neighbouring departments, and offers several destinations from a few airline companies. For arriving passengers, although there are bus and taxi services available, car hire companies such as Auto Europa Toulon Airport are open for car rental services. Auto Europa is quite a popular choice of car hire company in many European countries, and at other locations in the world.
Auto Europa’s vehicles are divided into various car categories, and are therefore hired accordingly. The best way to secure your ideal car is to make an online advanced reservation. The vehicle categories available at Toulon Airport include Mini, Economy, Compact, Midsize, Fullsize and Standard. The Standard category contains the largest vehicles, such as the Renault Traffic for nine passengers, as well as the Opel Zafira, for five passengers. Fullsize and Midsize vehicles could be of a sedan or station wagon variety, and may be similar to the Opel Astra Sport Tourer, Audi A4 or Renault Laguna. The vehicles in the other three categories are usually smaller, and ideal for up to four passengers. Mini vehicles such as the Peugeot 107 are especially small, and don’t offer much room for luggage. However, they are great for city driving. Economy cars are similar to the Renault Clio and Renault Twingo, and Compact vehicles include the Volkswagen Polo and Volkswagen Golf.
Many of the Toulon Airport car hire companies offer all-inclusive rental rates. From Auto Europa, vehicles may be offered with a choice of either basic or all-inclusive rental rates, or may just be hired with the all-inclusive rate. The basic rate simply covers fire and third party liability insurance, and VAT, while the all-inclusive rate covers the same, as well as certain other types of insurance, such as collision damage waiver and theft protection. The quote will not include the mandatory surcharge applicable to rentals which commence from airport locations, or any of the mandatory road tax/registration fees that are paid locally. All vehicles, besides a few luxury models and convertibles, are hired with unlimited mileage. Many of Auto Europa’s vehicles have a manual transmission, but some may be operated automatically, and most come with air conditioning, air bag protection and other desirable features.
In order to reach the rental counter of Auto Europa, you will need to exit the terminal building at Toulon Airport, and turn towards the right, as the Toulon Airport car rental companies are located in a separate building, nearby the P3 parking lot. This is where the rented cars of the companies are parked. The car rental building is within easy walking distance of the terminal, and like the airport itself, is accessible to passengers with reduced mobility challenges. Various services from the car hire companies are also offered to persons with disabilities. Auto Europa hand control equipment can be hired free of charge, and is a device that operates the brake and accelerator pedals of automatic vehicles. From the rental location of Toulon Airport, hand controls will need to be hired in advance. Equipment such as satellite navigation systems, child seats and luggage racks can also be hired, but they will cost a few extra Euro per day, or per rental.
To hire a car ensure that you and all additional drivers meet the minimum age requirements of the location (21), and have valid drivers licenses that have been held for at least a year prior to the rental date. The license should also be printed in a Roman alphabet, otherwise an International Driving Permit may be required. For payment of the rental, a major credit card is needed. Before leaving Toulon Airport, ensure that you know which type of fuel to use for your vehicle, and that you understand whether the car will need to be returned full or empty. The vehicle should have been checked for existing damages, and you should have the emergency numbers to contact in the case of an accident or breakdown. Most car hire companies offer twenty-four hour emergency assistance for all their vehicles.
Customers may be able to return their vehicle to Toulon Airport at any hour of the day. However, details for an out-of-office hour return should be confirmed with Auto Europa. One way hire services may be available as well, and this is when the customer is able to return the vehicle to a different rental location, and not drive back to the location of Toulon Airport. One way hires could be very convenient, and may or may not incur additional charges. Their price will depend on the length of the rental and the final destination of the vehicle.
