National Car Rental at Trapani
National Trapani Airport
Trapani Airport is located approximately fifteen kilometres from the cities of Trapani and Marsala, and is an international civilian and military airport in Western Sicily. It is also an Italian airport of reasonable size, handling around 1.5 million passengers per annum. Alternative names for the airport are the Trapani-Birgi Airport and the Vicenzo Florio Airport, and it has the official airport code of TPS. Passengers arriving at the airport can travel by bus or taxi, but a rented car from National Trapani Airport is perhaps a better form of transport. National’s vehicles are of the highest quality, and their car rental rates are considered to be reasonable.
National is a car hire company with over fifty years of experience in the industry, and have always strived to ensure the best customer service with friendly and reliable assistance. They have focused their attention on the needs of the frequent airport business traveller, and have helped to pioneer the corporate account business. National was also the first car rental company to introduce a comprehensive frequent-renter program in 1987, by the name of Emerald Club. Members of the club enjoy a wide range of innovative services, designed to help save time and money. The benefits include counter bypass options, convenient e-receipts and the option of ‘car choice’, which allows the customer to quickly choose their vehicle and get going, without any lengthy paperwork to complete.
National’s rental location at Trapani Airport is located in the arrival hall of the single terminal building, and is open at times which are convenient for the majority of arrival flights. Their hours of operation which can be used as a general guideline are from 08:00 to 22:30, every day of the week. However, customers should confirm the hours of operation with National, especially on public holidays. The terminal building of Trapani Airport is quite easy to navigate, and the Trapani Airport car rental companies should be quick to locate. The vehicles of the various companies, which include Avis, Hertz, Sixt, Alamo, Maggiore and Europcar, are parked in a nearby car park, on the airport grounds and within easy walking distance from the terminal building. In order to receive the car you need for your holiday or business trip, make an early reservation. Advanced bookings often secure the lowest rental rates as well. The most convenient way to hire a car nowadays is online, and there are many websites which support National car hire reservations.
Vehicles hired by the car rental company of National are only of the latest models, and are in good mechanical condition. They are arranged into various car groups, and are therefore hired accordingly. Economy cars are eco-friendly and fuel efficient, and wonderful choices for driving in the city. They are similar to the Fiat Panda Dynamic 1.2 and the Ford Fiesta Titanium 1.2. Their features include a manual transmission, air conditioning, a radio/cassette player and room for five passengers and two luggage items. Vehicles in the Intermediate category are slightly larger, and are similar to the VW Nuovo Passat Comfortline 1.9, while Intermediate Wagon vehicles include the Fiat Croma Dynamic MJT 1.9. The Trapani Airport car hire companies usually offer vehicles of a larger size as well, and those which are suitable for groups of travellers. National offers the Mercedes C220 CDI Elegance SW 2.2 as a Fullsize Wagon vehicle, and a Minivan for hire is the Fiat Ulyesses Dynamic 2.0, ideal for seven passengers. The Fiat Ducato Panorama 2.8 may also be available, and has room for nine people.
Besides vehicles, National also hires satellite navigation systems, child seats and luggage racks, and these items cost a few extra Euro per day of hire, or per rental contract. They are sometimes required by law, for example, child seats for children four years of age and under, and may also greatly contribute to the safety and ease of your journey. The GPS units available feature colour touch screens which are easy to operate, and offer accurate directions to any destination in voice and visual mode. They are also pre-programmed with thousands of points of interest. Additionally, National hand controls for disabled drivers may be possible to hire from Trapani Airport. Hand controls are free of charge, but will require an advanced reservation.
Another useful service from National are one way hires, enabling the customer to deliver their vehicle to a rental location other than the one from where it was collected, in this case, Trapani Airport. One way hire services can be arranged for the majority of vehicles hired, and are ideal for customers who plan to travel more extensively. They may incur additional charges, but may also be priced the same as an ordinary rental.
The primary renter at National will need to be 21 years of age or older, should have a valid drivers license and be able to produce a major credit card for payment of the rental agreement. In some cases, an International Driving Permit may be required. Keep in mind that additional drivers registered on the rental contract should meet the same requirements as the primary renter. National, Trapani Airport, will be willing to assist you with all further enquiries regarding car rental at this location.
