Fact Sheet



Montpellier Airport Car Hire

There are six car hire companies at the Montpellier Airport. They are Ada, Alamo, Avis, National/Citer, Europcar, Sixt and Hertz. They are all in the arrivals hall. Once you check in and get your car key you will have to exit the arrivals hall and get your car in the car park, outside just across from the arrivals hall, in the P1 car park.

The listed opening hours for car hire at the Montpellier Airport is Monday-Friday 7:30 am to 11:15 pm and Saturday-Sunday 8:00 am to 11:15 pm.

Should you need petrol before returning your car hire the nearest station is right next door to the Hôtel Aéroport (elevated prices though...). Cheaper petrol can be found at the Carrefour supermarket, a five minute drive from the airport on the Commercial Sud, Lattes.

You can hire direct from one of the companies above or with AutoEurope - for pick-up location use 'MPL'.

If you're a non-EU citizen or EU citizen living outside the EU and traveling for more than 17 days, then you should think about a Buy Back car, as it can be cheaper than car hire. The idea is simple, you buy a brand new Peugeot, drive it during your vacation and then when you're done you sell the car back. For more information see Buy Back Cars with Peugeot.
