Auto Europa Calgary International Airport Airport

Calgary International Airport is located nearby downtown Calgary, and is surrounded by the areas of Harvest Hills, Beddington Heights, Tuxedo Park, Vista Heights, Whitehorn and Martindale. The city and its airport are in the Alberta region of Canada, which is to the north of Montana in the United States. Calgary Airport has the code of YYC, and is rated as the fourth largest airport in Canada. Passengers can travel by bus or taxi from the airport, and also by rented car, as there are car hire companies such as Auto Europa Calgary Airport available. Auto Europa is one of the longest-standing car hire companies in the world, and has over 8,000 rental locations.

The rental counters of Auto Europa are nearby the airport’s large terminal building, on the departure level just across the roadway. Passengers in the arrival areas may find it more convenient to access the Car Rental Centre from the elevator lobby, across the arrivals roadway. The Calgary Airport car hire companies are open from morning till night, at all hours when there are arrival flights. The vehicles of the companies are also parked on the airport grounds, nearby the Car Rental Centre. Auto Europa, along with Hertz, Avis, National, Alamo, Budget, Dollar, Thrifty and Enterprise, provide customer service of only the highest quality at Calgary Airport, and hire only cars which are of the latest models.

Auto Europa’s cars are found in the categories of Economy, Compact, Midsize, Fullsize, Standard, Premium, Minivan and SUV, and are priced according to the category in which they are found. Customers will therefore not select a car by its specific make and model. All cars in the Economy category are similar to the Toyota Yaris, with room for four passengers and one luggage item, and cars in the Compact category are similar to the Chevy Cobalt with slightly more space for luggage. The Pontiac G6 is a Midsize car, while the Chevy Impala is an example vehicle in the Fullsize category. Fullsize cars are ideal for families, as there is room for five passengers. Premium and Luxury cars from Auto Europa are considered as ‘fancier’, while larger vehicle models are hired from the Minivan and SUV categories. They may be similar to the Dodge Grand Caravan, Ford Explorer and Ford Expedition.

The basic quote offered by Auto Europa includes VAT (Value Added Tax), liability insurance, fire insurance and unlimited mileage. Customers should therefore add any additional types of insurance they require, for example, Personal Accident Insurance and Loss Damage Waiver. Customers will also pay a little extra for equipment they require for their vehicle, such as child seats and satellite navigation systems. Both of these items can be considered as essential for a journey in unfamiliar territory, and will be well worth the extra few Dollars. Free of charge, however, are Auto Europa hand controls for disabled drivers, used by individuals with a lower limb disability. From Calgary Airport, hand controls should be reserved in advance. Additional services for disabled customers are also free of charge.

The Calgary Airport car rental companies may offer extra services such as one way hires, cross-border rentals and long-term rentals. An Auto Europa one way hire is when the vehicle is returned to a different rental location than the one from where it was collected, and a cross-border rental will be required if the vehicle is to be driven into the United States. From the rental location of Calgary Airport, one way hire services and other optional services may cause the rental to be more expensive than usual, but if required they are more convenient than an ordinary arrangement. Always confirm all details of such rentals with Auto Europa before finalizing your travel itinerary.
