Montpellier Airport Guide

Car Hire

Located just over four miles from Montpellier is France’s 10th busiest airport, which is officially called Montpellier-Méditerranée Airport and is also known as Fréjorgues Airport. Airport shuttle buses operate between the airport and the city, while trams and trains can be met where the shuttle bus terminates. The fastest and most convenient way to access the city, however, is with car hire in Montpellier Airport, with Montpellier being a 20-minute drive to the northwest.

Who to Book With
Car rental suppliers at the airport include worldwide firms such as Europcar, Avis and Budget, and French firm ADA. All suppliers have offices in the car hire area outside of the terminal building, yet vehicles are collected from car park P6.

Need to Know Essentials
You will need to show the following documents when collecting your vehicle:

- Your UK driver’s licence (both parts)
- The credit card which was used when booking the vehicle
- A document to confirm your ID
- Reservation confirmation

For more info read our FAQ's.

Driving
In France, parking restrictions are strongly enforced, with steep fines or towing the norm for parking in a prohibited area. Blue discs for blue zone parking can be purchased at shops, tourist offices and police stations. Automatic petrol pumps and serviced pumps accept credit cards, but UK-issued cards are not always accepted. All vehicles must have a warning triangle and reflective jacket in case of an emergency. UK motorists can purchase a télépéage transponder to use on French toll roads or they can pay by credit card at toll stations.

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). Which car rental companies are compared by Carrentals.co.uk? at this location
