Budget Car Rental at Toulon
Budget Toulon Airport
Toulon Airport is located just 3km from the town of Hyères, and 23km from the city of Toulon. It is also nearby the popular and famous resort of Saint-Tropez. Due to the airport’s location nearby these three areas, its other names are the Toulon-Hyères Airport, the Toulon-Saint Tropez Airport and the Hyères Le Palyvestre Airport. Both Toulon and Hyères are communes of the Var department of France, and the airport is in the famous Provence-Alpes Côte d’Azur region. There are Toulon Airport car rental companies available, such as Budget. This car hire company is well known for their ‘budget’ car rental rates, and Budget customers always receive vehicles of the best quality.
Toulon Airport has a terminal building of approximately 11,500 square metres, and has a capacity to handle up to 1.5 million passengers per annum. Currently, the airport has around 550,000 passengers every year. The airline companies of Air France, Air France operated by CityJet, Jetairfly, Ryanair and Transavia.com offer flights to Paris, London, Liverpool, Rotterdam, Brest, Charleroi, Oslo and Ajaccio. However, the terminal building is well equipped for arriving passengers, and the rental counters of the various Toulon Airport car hire companies, which include Budget, Hertz, Avis, National, Sixt, Europcar, Alamo and Thrifty, are within easy walking distance. They are located next to the P3 car park (where the rented vehicles are parked), in a separate building to the passenger terminal.
Budget Toulon Airport is open during the following hours: Sunday – 09:45 to 11:30 and from 14:00 to 23:00, Monday to Thursday – 08:00 to 12:00 and from 14:00 to 23:00, Friday – 08:00 to 12:00 and from 14:00 to 23:00, and on Saturdays from 09:45 to 11:30 and from 14:00 to 21:00. These hours correspond to the arrival flights of the airport. Budget is open on bank holidays, but their standard hours of operation may vary on these specific days. Book online as early in advance as possible in order to receive the car best suited for your holiday or business trip, and don’t forget to include any additional items of equipment required, for example, child seats and satellite navigation systems. Budget may need the age of your child in order to provide the correct size of car seat, and recommends a GPS unit for anyone who is travelling the area. Although the road network in France is good, and the main roads between the cities are quite easy to follow, a navigation system is extremely useful.
Another piece of equipment which will require an advanced reservation is Budget hand controls for disabled drivers. This device is used only on certain types of automatic vehicles, and will need to be fitted before your arrival. It may include a steering wheel knob. From the rental location of Toulon Airport, hand controls are available free of charge for all with a lower limb disability. Budget will also allow the primary renter to be a disabled person who cannot drive a vehicle. In this case the renter will have a licensed driver with him/her, in order to operate the vehicle. This driver is free of charge as well, unlike a conventional additional driver.
Vehicles from Budget are divided into various car categories, and some of the groups include Mini, Economy, Compact, Standard, Fullsize, Intermediate Wagon/Estate and Standard Passenger Van. For the majority of the vehicles within these categories, the primary renter and all additional drivers listed on the rental agreement will need to be at least 21 years of age or older. However, there are categories which require the drivers to be over the age of 25. Keep in mind that persons younger than 25 will pay higher rental rates, because young driver insurance will be added to the agreement. This could amount to around 25.00 Euro per day of car hire, and per young driver listed on the rental agreement. It is charged up until a maximum of ten rental days.
Mini and Economy vehicles from Budget are considered to be environmentally friendly, easy to drive and to come with the lowest car rental rates. These cars come with many nice features as well, such as power steering, power brakes, air conditioning, dual airbags, safety rear door locks and compact disc players. In the Mini category, an example vehicle is the Ford Ka Titanium, and in the Economy category, the Ford Fiesta Trend and Renault Clio can be hired. Smaller vehicles most often come with a manual transmission, and are able to seat four passengers. Compact cars are another popular choice of many renters, and include the Opel Astra 1.7 and the Opel Meriva, while the other categories have larger vehicles. The Renault Traffic is one of Budget’s vans able to accommodate up to nine passengers. Standard vehicles include the Citroen C5 HDI 1.6, and the Renault Grand Scenic is a car found in the Intermediate Estate category.
Passengers arriving at Toulon Airport can feel rest assured that they are receiving a quality vehicle from Budget, as all cars are cleaned and checked for safety before every rental. The vehicle will also come with 24-hour emergency breakdown service. Budget has been offering rented cars at low rates for a great number of years, and is therefore capable of providing excellent customer services. Contact Budget, Toulon Airport, for more information.
