Customers can make a vehicle booking directly from the rental counters at Bergamo Airport, or reserve their ideal selection in advance, from Europcar’s website at www.europcar.com. Their website explains all the details of their rental agreements, and displays pictures of the example vehicles in each car category. When renting a vehicle from Europcar, a car category will be selected, rather than a vehicle by its specific make and model. With the displayed vehicles, there is also an indication of how many passengers, and the quantity of luggage that vehicles in each car category can accommodate.
The Mini category at Europcar, Bergamo Airport, features practical and smaller sized vehicles. They are ideal for driving around the city – easy to drive in traffic and easy to park! They can seat up to four people, but two may be a more comfortable number. There is not much room for luggage in these vehicles, therefore they may not be suitable for longer distance traveling. Examples of cars in the Mini category are the Renault Twingo, Fiat 500 and Fiat Panda 1.3. Another popular car category from Europcar is the Economy class, featuring vehicles which are fuel-efficient and comfortable to drive, such as the VW Polo, Opel Corsa 1.2 Twinport, Ford Fusion 1.8 and Nissan Micra 1.2. They are also smaller vehicles, but are a bit larger than those in the Mini category, and can seat up to five people and store between two and four items of luggage.
Compact vehicles from Europcar are another excellent option for car hire. They include the Peugeot 308, which is an automatic vehicle, Volkswagen Golf TDI and Ford Focus 2.0. About five people are able to comfortably travel in these cars, and there is space for two luggage items. Slightly larger vehicles, which may be better for longer road trips, can be rented from the Intermediate, Standard and Fullsize categories. The Volkswagen Tiguan 4x4 and Renault Koleos 4x4 are available as Intermediate vehicles, as well as the Citroen C4 Picasso and Renault Scenic. The Renault Laguna is an example of a Standard vehicle.
Europcar offers extra-large vehicles for those customers who need lots of interior space and comfort for their journey. The RN Trafic Combi is suitable for up to nine people, while the Mercedes Viano seats up to eight passengers. The Renault Espace and RN Trafic Generation 1.9D are another two excellent larger vehicles, accommodating up to seven passengers.
Europcar is named as the ‘World’s Leading Leisure Car Rental Company’, and promises to provide the best car rental experience possible. Only the latest model rental cars are offered for hire, with an average age of six months, and prices are all inclusive, therefore you will not have any unpleasant cost surprises when it is time to pay for the vehicle. There is 24-hour roadside assistance with all rentals. If your flight is delayed, Europcar will wait for you, simply provide them with your flight number at the time of reservation.
