Customer questions about Nice Airport car hire

Hello, is it possible to add an additional driver to my booking?

Hi, yes on the booking page there should be an option to add on an additional driver under the "Add Extras" box.

Hi there. I am searching through car hire in Nice... can u see what I am looking at, not sure if the technology is up to that? well, I am looking for a convertible as it will be my Mum's 70th this year, so looking for a great price between the 1st and 10th sept, 10am-21.00... I can see you have the best price I have seen for a car, and am wondering about space as there will be 4 of us, 2 large bags and 2 small ones, do u think that the 206 is large enough just for a 30min journey with the luggage?

Hi, it might be possible, however it's likely to be a struggle and would depend on how big the large bags were. As the car is a convertible it will have restricted boot space, certainly if the roof was down, so you would as a minimum need to leave the roof up for the airport run. If you book and simply cannot fit your luggge in when you arrive, you could ask the rental agent to amend the booking for a bigger car but they may not have a convertible in a larger size and could put you in a regular car as an option.

I'd like to add winter tires to my rental at Nice Airport, but do not find it in the option?

Hi, most of our rentals include winterisation which includes winter tyres and this will be clearly specified at the quote stage, you should not need to add as an optional extra. I can check for you if you wish for any specific rental.

I am looking for a car rental starting on 17th may at Nice airport and ending 27th may at Ravenna airport, we are 7 passengers,  4 adult and 3 children 9 years old with 3 bags

Hi, we can arrange that for you. I would suggest a 9 seater minivan to ensure there is enough room for your luggage, but you may be ok with a 7 seater. I will need to check some suppliers may not premit returning the car to a different country (Italy). Please bear with me whilst I investigate.

Nice Airport Mini Guide

The Airport
As befits Nice, its airport, Nice Cote d’Azur is quite a smart affair. Situated under 4 miles from the centre of Nice it is the third busiest of France’s airports serving 10 million passengers last year, only Paris CDG and Orly handle more. There’s an incredible EIGHT lots of parking including short term, long term and valet and a free shuttle bus connects the outer car parks with the terminal.

Getting There
Dozens of airlines fly into Nice. They are mostly scheduled or budget airlines and some routes are seasonal only. All the major budget airlines fly there including easyJet, Ryanair and Flybe.

Getting to Your Destination
Vallon des Fleurs is the nearest railway station to the airport and is a 10–15 minute walk. If you have luggage then a taxi will help make this journey more bearable. Shuttle buses run a number of routes into the city and further afield. It is best to check the schedules and routes on the airport’s website Tickets can be bought on the bus and include one piece of standard size luggage. Taxis are available from several companies at the airport and fares are reasonable with the level of competition.

There is also the bizarre choice of a chauffeur driven motorbike!! Onward travellers to Monaco can take the helicopter to Monaco Airport. Car hire is readily available but due to the busy nature of the airport it is always best to pre-book. We’d recommend sending a member of the group through first to queue at the desks whilst the rest of the group collects luggage as it can get very busy during peak periods. Access to the La Provencal A8 motorway is easy and well signposted along the D6202.

Public Information
There’s an airport information desk for general airport enquiries in the public area together with a tourist information desk which can assist with onward travel and accommodation.

There are several banks and foreign exchange offices operating at Nice Airport with associated ATMs dotted throughout the terminals. Shopping at Nice Airport is fabulous and very high class so therefore generally expensive. Most of the shops deal in designer wear and upmarket accessories together with fine food and wine. There is a duty free shop after customs selling alcohol, tobacco products, perfumery and cosmetics and gifts.

Apart from the standard range of snack bars, cafes and bars at Nice Airport there are two very good restaurants. At Terminal 1 there is Le Riviera which is described as a bar lounge but which does excellent light meals and has a terrace with a view of the Mediterranean. At Terminal 2 there is Le Badiane, described as a ‘restaurante gastronomique’ which serves great food in comfortable surroundings. Persons requiring first aid should notify a member of the airport staff who will take you to a trained first aider.

Wi-Fi on a pay per use basis is available in both terminals and at Terminal 1 there are extensive business facilities including a conference room seating up to 650 people. Items of lost luggage should be reported to the dedicated desk in the baggage reclaim area.

Special Assistance
Nice is very well prepared for disabled passengers with many ‘assistance service’ call kiosks around the airport site. The airport notes however that 48 hours’ notice is preferable to be able to give passengers full assistance and that only limited assistance may be available if no notice is given. General assistance is however widely available for disabled travellers but again it is recommended that you inform your airline before travelling so that help is available at the departure and arrival airports. The airport conforms to EU law on disability provision.

Latest Update from Nice Airport:

13/03/17– Nice airport has become the first carbon neutral airport in France. It is the world’s 25th certified airport and it has achieved this two years ahead of its initial 2018 deadline.
