Halifax International Airport is located nearby to the city of Halifax, in the Nova Scotia province of Canada. It is found in the area of Enfield, and is the seventh busiest airport in the country. The airport is named after Robert L. Stanfield, a Premier of Nova Scotia, and is therefore commonly referred to as the Halifax Stanfield International Airport. It has also been allocated the IATA code of YHZ. Many facilities are available for departing and arriving passengers, including car hire companies, such as Auto Europa Halifax International Airport. Auto Europa is popular for their low car rental rates and wide range of vehicles for hire.

The rental counters of Auto Europa are found in the domestic arrival area of the Halifax Airport passenger building, and are open at all hours convenient for arriving passengers. Their vehicles are parked nearby as well, within walking distance of the rental counters. From this car hire location, vehicles are recommended to be hired in advance, as there is no guarantee that your ideal car will be available upon arrival. Online is the most convenient way to secure the lowest car rental rates. It is also advised to hire additional items of equipment in advance. These items may include child seats and satellite navigation systems, and even Auto Europa’s hand controls for disabled drivers.

When hiring a vehicle, it will be necessary to indicate if it will be an Auto Europa one way hire, or if it will simply be returned to the rental location of Halifax International Airport. One way hire services are often chosen by customers who will be driving more extensively, or by persons who are leaving Canada from a different airport. There are Auto Europa rental stations at the majority of Canadian Airports, and usually one way hires are permitted. Customers will need to find out, however, if cross-border rentals are allowed, should they wish to drive into the United States. One way hires and cross-border rentals could be more expensive than an ordinary hire, but their price usually depends on the length of the rental and the return location chosen for the vehicle.

Each company’s regulations may differ slightly, but most are very similar. The primary renter, and all additional drivers should be 21 years of age or older, and should be the holder of a valid drivers license and major credit card.

Cars in the categories of Specialty, Luxury, Premium, SUV, Minivan, Convertible and Pickup are often not available for hire by younger renters. Canadian car hire companies accept most of the major credit cards available (no key-ring sized cards), and will take a debit card or even a cash payment once the vehicle has been returned.

If any mechanical fault is suspected, contact Auto Europa immediately. Various fuel options are usually available from the Halifax International Airport car rental companies. Customers may purchase fuel upfront, and then are permitted to return the vehicle with an ‘empty as possible’ tank, or may simply return the vehicle with a full tank, rather than purchasing fuel at the beginning of the rental.
