Toulouse Blagnac Airport is an important establishment in France, and is allocated the official IATA code of TLS. The airport serves approximately 6.9 million passengers every year, and is a major gateway to the Midi-Pyrenees region of the country. It is located a few miles from Toulouse, and partially in the area of Blagnac, hence its name of the Toulouse Blagnac Airport. From the airport, passengers can take buses or trains to reach the city, however, many prefer to rent a car. The car hire company of Budget Toulouse Blagnac Airport is a popular choice as they offer low car rental rates and excellent services. Their vehicles are of a high quality as well.
The car hire companies of this airport can be found in the Proxi Park P2 building, which is their new location. They were recently moved here from their previous location next to the PO. At the car park P2, Budget can be found on the ground floor and are open from 07:00 to midnight, Mondays to Fridays, and from 08:00 to midnight on Saturdays and Sundays. Passengers will arrive at one of the various halls of the airport, depending on their airline company and origin of their flight, but from all halls the car hire companies are within a minute’s walk. Hall D is where international passengers will arrive, and is a newer addition to the airport’s facilities.
Toulouse Airport is one of Budget’s Fastbreak locations. Customers who belong to the Fastbreak program benefit from faster reservations, rentals and returns, as well as from a number of services that may help to save money. The program is free of charge and available to frequent renters. A frequent renter, as defined by Budget, is someone who has hired a car three or more times from any Budget location. If a customer would like to apply for the service, proof of three rental contracts may be required. Other requirements may need to be met as well. A renter is usually required to be of a certain age and should have a major credit card.
To rent a car from one of the Toulouse Blagnac Airport car hire companies, passengers should be 21 years of age or older. However, those between 21 and 25 are subject to higher rental rates. This is because young drivers insurance is added to the contract. The fee will amount to 25 EUR per day and per underage driver registered on the rental agreement up until a maximum of ten rental days. Younger drivers will also not be able to hire a vehicle from all categories. Only those 25 or older can hire vehicles from the car groups E, F, G, M, N and O. Keep in mind that there is also a charge for additional drivers registered.
Upon collection of the vehicle, all drivers should be present, and will need to show a valid driving license that has been held in their country of residence for at least one year prior to the date of car rental. Licenses that have been issued in the European Union are accepted, otherwise an International Driving Permit should be produced. This document must be acquired in your home country, and should accompany (rather than replace) your local license. All drivers should have a major credit card as well, such as American Express, Diners Club, MasterCard or Visa. Certain car groups will require two major credit cards.
Vehicles hired may be driven out of France to countries such as Germany, Spain and Italy, however, Mercedes models may not travel to Italy. There are no additional charges for cross-border rentals. Budget one way hires are permitted as well. This service enables a customer to return their vehicle to a location other than Toulouse Airport. One way hires may also not incur any additional charges.
All the Toulouse Blagnac Airport car rental companies hire additional items of equipment with their vehicles, if they are required. There are child seats available, as well as satellite navigation systems. These items will cost an additional amount per day of hire, or per rental contract, but are most often well worth the expense. A child seat will ensure a comfortable and safe journey for your little one, and a satellite navigation system is invaluable to any traveller who is not familiar with the French road network surrounding Toulouse Blagnac Airport. Hand controls may also be available for persons with a lower limb disability. Budget’s hand controls will require an advanced reservation but are free of charge.
Vehicles hired from Budget are in a good condition and are regularly cleaned and checked for safety. They come in various sizes, as some are even large passenger vans similar to the Renault Traffic that seats up to nine passengers. This is a premium van with a manual transmission and air conditioning. These larger vans are usually quite pricy to hire and are therefore only ideal if required for a group of travellers. The smaller cars available are similar to the Renault Twingo, Ford Fiesta and Renault Clio, and are much more affordable. However, they don’t have much room for luggage. Popular cars for hire from Budget also include the Opel Meriva, Renault Laguna, Renault Scenic, Opel Zafira and Peugeot 807.
A rented car will have a full tank of fuel that must be paid for in advance by the renter, unless other arrangements allow for the renter to simply return the car with a full tank of fuel. Renters who have paid for fuel should return their vehicles as empty as possible.
