Europcar Car Rental Olbia Airport
Europcar Olbia Airport
Olbia Airport is only four kilometres from the town of Olbia, on the island of Sardinia. This region in Italy is extremely popular for tourists looking for a bit of sunshine and sandy beaches. Olbia Airport is not very big, but is one of the main three airports on the island, and has a modern and well-equipped terminal building that was recently renovated in 2004. Some of the best beaches of the area can only be reached by car, and therefore many passengers hire a rented vehicle from the car hire companies at Olbia Airport. Europcar is present at the airport, and are well known for their competitive rental rates and various car hire services. Europcar is also a globally recognized organization.
Europcar Olbia Airport is popular for being part of the ‘World’s Leading Leisure Car Rental Company’, delivering quality rental vehicles to thousands of customers all over the globe. Customers of Europcar can expect excellent service and very reasonable rental prices. Europcar makes a few promises to their customers. They promise the rental of only the latest model vehicles, all inclusive prices, 24 hour roadside assistance and 24/7 service at most of their major airport locations. However, if your Europcar location is not open 24 hours a day, simply provide them with your flight number, and Europcar will wait for you if your flight is delayed.
Customers looking to book with Europcar Olbia Airport have a wide range of vehicles from which to choose, and all vehicles are booked by car category, rather than by their specific makes and models. All the vehicle categories can be viewed on Europcar’s website, at www.europcar.com. Advanced online bookings can also be made from this site, instead of renting directly from Europcar’s rental counters at Olbia Airport. It is also recommended to hire any extra items of equipment needed for your journey in advance, such as a baby or booster seat, or satellite navigation system. These items are subject to availability, and should therefore be booked as early as possible. Europcar’s rental counters, at Olbia Airport, are open every day of the week, till the later evening hours.
Europcar’s Mini category contains smaller vehicles such as the Renault Twingo, Fiat Panda 1.2, Fiat 500 1.2 and Seat Ibiza 1.6. This size of vehicle is ideal for city driving, and for driving on small and winding Italian streets, which are quite common in many towns and cities, especially nearby the city centres. Although they are said to seat up to four people, they may be a bit small for families, and they don’t have much space for luggage. The Renault Twingo is actually listed as having no space for luggage at all. However, they are a great choice for single drivers or couples who are not bringing along much baggage. These are also manually driven vehicles.
There are also Economy vehicles at Europcar that are of a similar size to those in the Mini category, although perhaps a bit larger. This car group includes the VW Polo, Peugeot 206, Opel Corsa 1.2 Twinport, Ford Fusion 1.8 and Nissan Micra 1.2. All these vehicles are usually very fuel efficient, and also come with good rental prices. Compact vehicles are a bit more fancy, with an automatic transmission, and various other features. They are hatchback model vehicles seating up to five people, and are also two door vehicles. They include the Peugeot 308 Auto and the Mercedes A180 CDI Auto.
Families hiring a vehicle from Europcar may prefer the Intermediate car category, as these vehicles have good interior space, and are a bit larger. They also have some room for luggage. The Volkswagen Tiguan 4x4, Renault Koleos 4x4, Citroen C4 Picasso and Renault Scenic are vehicles seating up to five passengers in this category, while there is also the Citroen C4 Grand Picasso Auto and Renault Grand Scenic available which seat up to seven passengers. Groups of travellers in need of an even larger vehicle will find their ideal rental solution in the Standard category, with the RN Traffic Combi Long 1.9, seating up to nine passengers. There is also the Mercedes Viano, seating eight, Renault Espace seating seven and the RN Traffic Generation seating seven passengers as well.
Europcar, at Olbia Airport, offers their customers all kinds of vehicles, including more sporty type cars and convertibles. Some of these more ‘special’ vehicles may require a higher age limit for the primary renter, or even more than one major credit card. Most vehicles however, have an age restriction of just 21, but keep in mind; drivers between the ages of 21 and 25 may pay a higher rental rate in the form of a ‘young driver fee’. All drivers registered on the rental contract should produce a valid drivers license when collecting the vehicle, and may need additional documents such as a photo ID, passport or return airline ticket. An International Driving Permit may also be required for foreign renters. In order to pay for the rental, a major credit card in the name of the primary renter is needed, for example, American Express, Diners Club, Eurocard / MasterCard or Visa.
