Europcar Halifax International Airport
Halifax International Airport is one of the largest in Canada, with over three and half million passengers recorded in 2011, and is also one of the ‘newer’ airports, as it was only established in 1960. The airport is also referred to as the Halifax Robert L. Stanfield International Airport, and by the official code of YHZ. It has many facilities, including a large number of car rental companies, for example, Europcar Halifax International Airport. All types of vehicles are hired by Europcar, at this car hire location, and some of the lowest car rental rates are offered to airport passengers.
Halifax International Airport is located approximately 35km, or 22 miles north of Halifax, in Enfield, and in Atlanta Canada, an area known for its long stretches of beautiful coastlines. Atlanta Canada includes the province of Nova Scotia, in which Halifax and its airport are located. Halifax Airport has a large, single terminal building, which is adequate in size for its current number of passengers, and which handles all domestic, transborder and international arrival and departure flights. It is also the headquarters of Chorus Aviation, the seventh busiest airport in Canada and is part of the National Airports System. The Halifax International Airport car hire companies have their rental counters in the domestic arrival area, within easy reach of all airport facilities. The cars hired are also within walking distance of the terminal building.
Although Europcar is present at Halifax Airport, passengers are requested to collect their vehicle from the National Car Hire counters. Advanced reservations are recommended, however, vehicles may be hired directly over the rental counters as well, provided that the customer meets all the required conditions of car hire as set by Europcar. In general, the primary renter will be expected to be at least twenty-one years of age, and should have a valid drivers license that is accepted at the rental location. A safe driving record should be shown. The majority of car hire companies also place a hold on the primary renter’s credit card for the approximate car rental payment due, and therefore a credit card in this individual’s name will be required. However, the actual payment due once the vehicle is returned can be made by debit card, or sometimes even in cash.
Younger renters, below the age of 25, are allowed to hire a car from Halifax Airport and Europcar, but may not be permitted to choose all of the vehicle categories available. Larger vehicles in SUV or Minivan categories are usually not for hire by younger drivers, as well as those found in Luxury, Premium or Specialty categories. Younger drivers will also need to pay higher rental rates, as young drivers insurance will automatically be included in their rental quote. This is an amount applicable per day of car hire, and per underage driver registered on the rental contract, often up to a certain number of rental days.
Vehicles hired at Canadian airports could be similar to the Suzuki Swift in the Economy category, the Nissan Versa in the Compact category and the Dodge Caliber in the Midsize category. These are all cars able to accommodate up to four or five passengers, and they have room for a couple of luggage items. They are also the cars hired with the lowest car rental rates, and are excellent choices for city or long-distance driving. Larger vehicles hired are similar to the Ford Fusion, Chevrolet Impala, Buick Allure and Chrysler 300C. The last two mentioned are examples of Premium and Luxury vehicles available. The Halifax International Airport car rental companies hire many SUVs and Minivans as well, similar to the Ford Escape, Ford Explorer, Ford Edge, Chevrolet Tahoe, Chevrolet Suburban and Dodge Grand Caravan. Pickups, Convertibles, Crossovers and Passenger Vans are some of the additional categories which can be chosen at the Halifax Airport car rental companies. The Chevrolet Express is an example of one of the largest vehicles available, able to seat up to fifteen passengers.
Passengers can hire their vehicles as a Europcar one way hire, and also add optional items of equipment to their rental, such as satellite navigation systems and child seats. A child seat is required by law in Canada, and will therefore be necessary in a vehicle driven from Halifax International Airport. One way hires are ideal for passengers going ‘one way’ only, and who will not be returning to the airport, as the vehicle is then allowed to be delivered to an alternative rental location. Europcar hand controls for disabled drivers are another option available, and are free of charge from Halifax Airport. Hand control equipment is used by persons with a lower limb disability, and may include a steering wheel knob.
Europcar promises their customers only service of the highest quality, and vehicles that are mechanically reliable. They provide only new rental cars, of late models, and their popular all-inclusive car rental rates leave no surprises for the time of payment. Ensure that you provide Europcar with your flight number when booking the vehicle, so that if your flight is delayed, they can wait for you. Customers fond of Europcar’s services can also become holders of the Privilege Card, and enjoy many benefits each time they hire a vehicle.
