Europcar Milan Malpensa Airport
Milan Malpensa Airport is an airport in Italy, located approximately 45km, or 29 miles from the city centre of Milan. It is the second largest airport in Italy in terms of international traffic, falling just behind Rome Fiumicino Airport, and handles around 25 million passengers per annum. The airport is also part of the Milan airport system, which consists of Milan Malpensa Airport, Linate Airport and Orio al Serio Airport, and is recognised by its official airport code of MXP. Although public transport options are available, passengers often prefer to rent a car, from a company such as Europcar Milan Malpensa Airport. Europcar is one of the largest providers of car rental services in Europe, and their car hire rates are considered as competitive.
This main airport of Milan consists of two large terminal buildings. These buildings are located at quite a distance from one another, therefore, shuttle buses are regularly available for the transport of passengers. In both terminals, there are car hire companies found nearby the arrival areas. Europcar Malpensa has offices in Terminal 1, and in the arrivals hall of Terminal 2, and they are open in Terminal 1 from 07:00 to midnight, and in Terminal 2 from 08:00 to midnight on weekdays, on Saturdays from 09:00 to 23:00 and on Sundays from 09:00 to midnight. At this airport location, Europcar is found alongside a variety of other Milan Malpensa Airport car hire companies, for example, Hertz, Avis, National, Alamo, Sixt, Maggiore and Auto Europa, however, Europcar is often the car rental company of choice for their reasonable rental rates which are all-inclusive, and their high quality vehicles.
Vehicles from Europcar are best reserved online, as early as possible, and the quotes given will include a number of useful aspects for your rental.

It is also important to specify if your rental will be a Europcar one way hire, in other words, if your car will be returned to a different rental location, and not driven back to Milan Malpensa Airport.
