Granada Airport is a very important gateway to the Andalusia region of Spain, and is located only a few miles from the city of Granada, nearby the municipalities of Santa Fe, Chauchina and Cijuela. From 2006, the airport’s official name has been the Federico García Lorca Granada-Jaén Airport, after a poet of the Granada area. Jaén, a city located approximately 100km from the airport, is also included in the name, in order to symbolise the importance of this area for tourism as well. There are excellent facilities at the airport, including a wide selection of Granada Airport car hire companies, such as Europcar. Europcar is one of the largest car rental networks in the world, and provides their customers with vehicles of high quality and competitive car rental rates.
Granada Airport, with the official IATA code of GRX, consists of a single terminal building and one runway. From the ground floor, departure and arrival proceedings are handled, and all facilities are clearly signposted in Spanish and English. All facilities are also within easy walking distance of one another, and passengers will therefore find the terminal quite simple to navigate. Once passengers have collected their baggage, from one of the three baggage reclaim carousels, and passed through customs if necessary, they will find the car hire companies, including Europcar Granada Airport, in the main arrivals hall. There are also cash machines available in this area, and public toilet facilities. Europcar, although not open twenty-four hours a day at this rental location, is available for customers arriving on the majority of the airport’s flights. Europcar reservations should be made in advance, in order to secure the lowest rental rates.
Vehicle quotes from Europcar will include the mandatory airport surcharge applicable to all rentals commencing from airport locations and VAT, and customers may also add various types of insurances to their rental quote. Additional items of equipment may be booked as well, for example, child seats for babies or toddlers, luggage racks and satellite navigation systems. A GPS is highly recommended for any driver who is unfamiliar with this region of Spain, and the navigation devices offered by Europcar are high quality pieces of technology with many features that make finding any destination an easy task. Drivers will enjoy a colour touch screen with clear and accurate visuals, turn-by-turn directions in voice or visual mode, and a list of pre-programmed points of interest. All additional items of equipment will cost a few extra Euros per day of hire.
Over and above the items mentioned, Europcar hand controls may be available from the car rental location of Granada Airport. Hand controls are ideal for the use of a person with a lower limb disability, as it operates the main functions of an automatic vehicle, i.e. the brake and accelerator pedals. The device is not connected to other functions of the vehicle, such as the car lights or blinkers, but may come with a steering wheel knob. Hand controls, as well as any other item of equipment required, should be reserved as early as possible, as Europcar cannot guarantee their availability upon your arrival.
Vehicles from the Granada Airport car rental companies can be driven to all locations in Spain, and also to most other European countries, for example, France and Italy. The vehicle may also be arranged as a Europcar one way hire, allowing the customer to return it to another rental location. This option is most convenient for those who are not leaving Spain from Granada Airport. One way hires, or cross-border rentals which are delivered to a location outside of the country in which it was collected, may be more expensive than usual. However, it is best to confirm all details with Europcar, at the time of reservation.
Customers of Europcar can choose from a variety of car groups, and within these categories, are vehicles of all sizes and prices, suitable for all types of journeys. The Renault Clio is an example of one of the smaller vehicle models available, and is an excellent choice for single drivers or couples. Other smaller cars include the VW Polo, Fiat Linea and Seat Leon 1.9. They are all cars with either two or four doors, air conditioning, a manual transmission and come with unlimited mileage as well. The primary renter of these eco-friendly cars will need to be just 21 years of age or older, and have held a valid drivers license in their country of residence for a year prior to the rental date. A foreign renter will also require an International Driving Permit, according to Spanish Law. Larger cars available from Europcar, Granada Airport, and those ideal for families, include the Peugeot 308 SW, Renault Grand Scenic 1.6, Seat Alhambra for seven passengers, and the Chrysler Voyager. The Mercedes Vito is available for groups of up to nine travellers.
Europcar promises their customers only the best service, and vehicles in an excellent mechanical condition. Their vehicles are only of the latest models, regularly cleaned and checked for safety, and all cars come with twenty-four hour roadside assistance. Europcar customers can even enjoy greater benefits and discounts each time a rented car is needed by applying for the Privilege Card. ‘Privilege’ customers enjoy priority counter service, pre-printed rental agreements and the guaranteed application of company rates and charge card options.
