Flexibility in making the deal, support of employees in office (Lyon - France - Train centre)No options of cars. They didn’t informus about charges at boarders, they might not know about it, but it’s inportant for future.

From Lyon to Nantes and 10 days in betweenThe price was excellent for a last minute rental. Pick up was very easy. The car wasn't as clean as I would expect it to be but neither is my car so no big deal. Absolutely no problems with car for the 10 days that I had it. I was very happy overall and would go back to budget.I was very clear with the rental agent on picking up the car in Lyon and dropping it of in Nantes by the train station. I tried to drop it off on a Sunday, as planned, but the rental office was closed. I then had to go to the airport to return the car which cost me a taxi ride back to the train station. This delay caused me to miss my original train so I then had to buy a new train ticket. I was not happy needless to say.

6.0 GoodMay 15 2022
The car was clean and spacious, but hard to find. Located in a remote parking lot and space. It was hard to navigate the distance w luggage. The car was different from what was promised: expected a hybrid car w GPS. It was neither. Contactless renting has its advantages. At the same time you need internet service every time you open and lock the car. We travelled to Lyon from a different continent and so this was an issue.

It appeared my vehicle had been upgraded as I was given an automatic hybrid car which was lovely to drive & economic on fuel!

We were charged much more than the Kayak announced price. Even though there were no unexpected fees. Either Kayak or Europcar did not respect the deal. We will not go through Kayak again for car rentals

Hello, There was almost no experience :) I made a mistake and lost the credit card that was used for reservation therefore we were unable to pickup the car (despite the fact that I had my card enrolled in a virtual wallet). I understand these are the rules...physical card - the plastic - is needed and canceled the reservation while I was at the Hertz counter (Lyon Airport) I have learned a lesson..a bit pricey, but that's life!

I was not pleased with status of snow tires. We asked for chains but were told none existed for cars our size. Of course, we got stuck one night going up the mountain. A tow truck came after a call to the Thrifty emergency numberand we bought snow chains from him. He told us we would not be charged for the tow since we bought the snow chains, but of course if showed up on the bill at drop off and no one there was compotent enough to be able to deal with it.

Top tips for hiring a car at Lyon-Saint Exupéry Airport

  • Lyons-Saint Exupery Airport (LYS) is well-connected to Lyon city centre by road and is an ideal location for hiring a car. Driving from the airport to Lyon city centre, instead of using public transport, will generally shorten your journey time, giving you a convenient start to your trip. Car hire at Lyons-Saint Exupery Airport also gives you a great opportunity to explore surrounding regions, as Lyon Airport is also connected by road to many scenic rural areas, such as Le Puy and Oyonnax.
  • Lyon Airport is located close to the Lyon Part Dieu’s International Business Park and is a popular destination for business travellers. If you’re flying for work, car hire at Lyons-Saint Exupery Airport is an excellent choice and will help avoid long waits for the business park shuttle service from the airport, which is often very crowded. A hire car also gives you a convenient way to travel between meetings or events if you are in Lyon for work.
  • As Lyon Airport is a popular destination with business travellers, it is often busy during the week in commuter rush-hour periods, such as the early mornings and mid-late afternoons. Therefore, you should avoid these times of day if you want to beat the crowds when picking up or returning your vehicle. Some Lyons-Saint Exupery Airport car hire companies, like SIXT, Enterprise, and Hertz, are open into the evening on weekdays and at weekends for vehicle collection, meaning you can dodge rush-hour footfall. SIXT also offers a convenient 24h returns service.
  • Choose from a huge variety of rental models when you select car rental at Lyon Airport. With a wide range of car hire companies available, you can choose a vehicle or booking category to suit your own personal travel needs. Many companies offer economy rental options if you’re on a budget, while others offer options such as SUVs or multi-seaters if you’re travelling with family, or you want some extra space for luggage.
  • Book your car hire at Lyon-Saint Exupéry Airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
