Grenoble Airport Guide

Car Hire

Grenoble-Isere Airport is the low-cost and charter carrier hub for travellers to the Rhone-Alps region of southeastern France. Set at the foot of the French Alps, 25 miles from the city, the terminal sees almost half a million visitors pass through its doors every year, with many heading for the region’s popular ski resorts. Overlooked by the snowy mountain massifs, Grenoble is within an easy 45-minute drive of the ski stations for Deux Alpes, Alpe d’Huez and other popular winter sports resorts. Coach, minibus and taxi are the ground transportation options for accessing the city and other places in the region.

Who to Book With
Avis is the only car hire company serving Grenoble Airport, with its office open for business during the winter season from Friday through Monday. Opening times are geared to flight arrivals and are 08:00 to 12:00 Monday, 14:30 to 21:00 Friday, 08:00 to 22:30 Saturday and 08:00 to 18:00 Sunday.

Need to Know Essentials
You will need to show the following documents at vehicle collection:

- Your home country driver’s licence
- The credit card used to make the reservation
- A passport to confirm your ID
- Confirmation of booking if made in advance

New regulations state a breathalyser must be carried along with a reflective jacket and warning triangles. Snow chains are compulsory in winter and dipped headlights must be used during the day. Parking regulations are rigorously enforced, with urban Blue Zone parking areas needing the display of a blue disc, purchased at a shop. Fines and towing away are the result of non-compliance. Petrol stations accept card payments although automatic pumps may not accept UK credit cards. Drivers from the UK are now allowed to purchase telepeage tags allowing for the use of the toll road automatic tag lanes.

The fastest and most convenient way to reach Grenoble from the airport is by self-drive, with alternatives such as coaches and Ben’s Bus ski transport buses taking at least 35 minutes at a cost of around £10. The coaches run infrequently and offer services to major ski resorts, including Chamrousse, Les Deux Alpes and Alpe d’Huez. Taxis and limos can be hired, but are expensive.

Taxis can be hired via the information desk in the airport’s Arrivals hall or can be booked in advance. Limos with bilingual drivers are available. Taxi travel to the ski resorts is by shared minibuses which are usually booked in advance rather than by regular taxis. Popular taxi firms with a presence at the airport include Premier Classe Transport, Herve Bringer and VIP Limousine.

Taxi prices:
Grenoble Airport to Grenoble city centre is about £50
Grenoble Airport to Alpe d’Huez is about £200
Grenoble Airport to Les Deux Alpes is about £210

During the winter ski season, Grenoble Altitude offers an hourly coach service from the airport to the city centre, taking around 50 minutes, costing £10 and arriving at the city’s coach station for connections with coach services to more than 20 ski resorts in the French Alps. AG Bus connects with Lyon and the Tarentaise Valley, just over an hour’s drive away.

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

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).

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?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.
