Hertz Car Rental at Tours
Hertz Tours Airport
Tours Airport is found in the Central region of France, nearby the city of Tours, and is a small airport with about 120,000 passengers per year. It is known by it’s airport code of TUF, and as the Tours Val de Loire Airport, as it is located in the Loire Valley part of the country. The airport is partly located in the communes of Tours and Parcay-Meslay, and in the department of Indre-et-Loire. The city of Tours is also nearby to Orleans, Poitiers, Angers and Le Mans. To fully explore the region, a rented car from Hertz Tours Airport is recommended. Hertz Car Hire is a car rental company with over ninety years of experience in the industry, and are capable of providing their customers with the best vehicle for their journey.
Tours Airport has one terminal building of only 1,500 square metres in size, from where all arrival and departure proceedings are handled. The airline carrier at the airport holding the majority of destinations is Ryanair, and many of the airport services, including the car rental companies, operate according to the scheduled times of Ryanair flights. The following hours can be used as a general guideline for Hertz: Monday – 14:30 to 15:00, Tuesday – 09:00 to 09:30, Friday – 14:30 to 15:00 and Saturday – 09:00 to 09:30. Hertz is closed on Thursdays and Sundays. At this rental location, it may be possible to arrange out-of-office hour vehicle collections or returns. Hertz one way one hires can be convenient as well, as they allow the car to be returned to a different location. At Tours Airport, one way hire services may be referred to by Hertz as the Hertz Rent-It-Here and Leave-It-There option, and they may be more expensive than an ordinary rental.
Although Tours Airport is not a very busy airport, passengers should reserve their hire car in advance. Sometimes additional items of equipment are needed as well, and these items, which may include child seats, satellite navigation systems and luggage racks, should be reserved early as well. These items are subject to availability. Child car seats are available in sizes that are suitable for infants or young children, and the age of your child should be specified when reserving a seat. For anyone travelling in France, a satellite navigation system is a wonderful device to have, but keep in mind that those able to detect speed-radar traps are now illegal, and fines could be issued should you be found with one. Another device hired from the Tours Airport car rental companies is hand controls for disabled drivers. Hertz hand controls are designed for persons with a lower limb disability, and from Tours Airport, hand controls are free of charge.
Once passengers have arrived at Tours Airport they can collect their luggage and head for the car hire companies. They are not in the terminal, but at the long stay car park. In order to hire a car from Hertz the primary renter will need to be at least 21 years of age, or even 25 years of age or older for certain categories, and will have to show a valid drivers license at the rental counters. A major credit card will also be required to pay for the rental. The Tours Airport car hire companies accept most licenses, provided that they are printed in a Roman alphabet and have been held by the person for at least a year prior to the rental date. Some drivers, depending on their country of residence, will need an International Driving Permit. This document should be carried with the local license at all times.
Although persons younger than 25 can hire a car, they will pay higher rental rates, for young drivers insurance. This is an amount usually charged per day of car hire, and per ‘underage’ driver listed on the rental agreement. Younger drivers will be permitted to rent from certain categories that usually contain smaller vehicles such as the Chevrolet Spark, Peugeot 107 and the Opel Corsa. Hertz is also one of the only car hire companies that hire vehicles by their specific make and model, and from Tours Airport, these could be eco-friendly vehicles like the VW Polo and Renault Megane Clio SW. Vehicles in the Hertz Fun and Prestige Collections can also be more specifically hired, and may include the Smart For Two, Fiat 500, Citroen DS3, Volkswagen Beetle, Alfa Romeo Giulietta, Volvo XC60, BMW X3, Audi A6 and the Mercedes Viano. There are also a number of Mercedes models in the Prestige category.
From Hertz, Tours Airport, larger cars may also be available, similar to the Peugeot 5008, Citroen C8, Chevrolet Captiva and Opel Vivaro seating nine. They are found in the 4WD/SUV/Minivan category. Cars in France could also be hired with a satellite navigation system included in their rental. Most vehicles are available with unlimited mileage, and are hired with emergency twenty-four hour breakdown assistance. Should anything go wrong with your vehicle, contact Hertz immediately. If an accident occurs, Hertz should also be informed. Insurance is a very important part of your rental agreement. Find out if collision damage waiver and theft protection have been included. Third party liability insurance is included in quotes by most car hire companies.
