Biarritz Airport Guide

Car Hire

Biarritz Airport, near the Spanish border, is one of the best airports to fly into to reach nearby Biarritz. Located around three miles southeast of the centre of Biarritz, the airport is also ideally located for access to nearby Bayonne and Anglet, both of which are only a short, scenic drive away. Hiring a car from Biarritz Airport is simple and allows you to really experience all that this area of France has to offer.

Who to Book With
There are a number of car rental companies within the airport, including international companies. Hertz, Europcar and Avis all have branches in the main terminal, along with Sixt and National. It is possible to book either in advance or on the day with all companies.

Need to Know Essentials
In order to collect a rental vehicle, you will need the following documentation:

- A valid driver’s licence
- The credit card used when making the booking
- A passport
- A utility bill
- The booking confirmation number or email

For more info read our FAQ's.

Roads are generally well maintained, including the toll roads which are common across France. Always carry change with you for tolls. Tourists are able to use the automatic tag lanes at toll roads by simply purchasing a telepeage tag. Traffic in the cities can add to journey times. Parking restrictions are strictly enforced in France and parking in a restricted zone can result in the vehicle being towed. Petrol pumps are common, and although not all accept UK-issued cards, they all take banknotes.

Passengers can easily self-drive to nearby Biarritz, which is only a three-mile drive away. Trains and buses link the airport with surrounding towns. However, they do not run through the night, so passengers not renting a vehicle will have to get a taxi to their destination if their flight arrives late.

A train line connects the airport with Biarritz-La Négresse Railway Station. Chronoplus Line C runs services daily and the journey time is around 10 minutes. It is also possible to get a direct service to Bayonne Railway Station, which takes around 30 minutes. Tickets cost from £.080 per person one way depending on the destination.

Taxis are available outside of the main terminal building. As buses and trains do not run 24 hours, taxis are the only option for those arriving at night and who are not renting a vehicle.

Taxi prices:
From Biarritz Airport to central Biarritz is about £10
From Biarritz Airport to central Bayonne is about £15

Some hotels offer a free shuttle bus service; enquire about this service before arrival. For those without this service, Chronoplus runs bus services to many destinations in the area; however, these services tend to end at around 22:00. Fares vary depending on destination, but are around £1.50 to Biarritz centre and a similar price to Bayonne centre.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
