Top tips for renting a car at Lyon-Saint Exupery Airport

  • Are you traveling to Lyon for business or leisure? Consider car rental at Lyon-Saint Exupéry Airport (LYS) so you can discover this beautiful French region at your pace and pleasure. Visiting top attractions becomes easy with a rented car because you have the liberty to go where you want when you want to rather than relying on the fixated public transportation system. Being a UNESCO Heritage Site, you can be certain there is plenty to see and do while on vacation in Lyon such as the amazing Fourviere Basilica or the magnificent Parc de la Tete d’Or.
  • Located just 13 miles from the city center, Lyon Airport is the fourth busiest airport in France. To ensure that you have a smooth trip, you can book your car rental at Lyon-Saint Exupéry Airport from any of the three terminals, hop onto your rental car and begin to explore the region. Some car rental companies offer chauffeur services to make your travel as hassle-free as possible. You can also find short-term car rental services at the airport courtesy of Peugeot. Travelers arriving through Terminal 2 can use free shuttle services outside of Level 0 adjacent to Terminal 1 or Terminal 3. These shuttle services will take you to the nearby Perrache Rail Station or Part Dieu Rail Station where you can find more car rental agencies.
  • When driving from the airport to any part of France, you will be driving on the right-hand side of the road. Thanks to so many roundabouts, you can expect so much traffic, which can grow in severity during rush hours, usually from 7 am to 9 am and 5 pm to 7 pm. Fortunately, there are green directional signs that direct drivers to the non-highway main route, commonly known as "free roads." There are also toll roads that are labeled "peage" that you can use to escape snarl-ups at a fee, of course.
  • There are plenty of parking options at Lyon-Saint Exupéry Airport. Free parking is available on P3 for the first 15min. However, parking at this spot can be quite expensive if you are going to stay around for over 4h. You can opt for underground parking at P0, P1, P2, and P4 that are located close to the terminals. If you are looking for longer and cheaper parking deals, you might want to consider parking at P5. You can also pre-book your car park space well in advance.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars at Lyon-Saint Exupery Airport for C$ 45 or less
  • Book your rental car at Lyon-Saint Exupery Airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price

When we arrived to pick up the car arranged for by Kayak the size of the car available at the lot was inadequate to economy as booked with kayak (we were offered minuscule Fiat Panda instead of reserved Peugeot 308 or equal). No other cars were available in the economy size on the lot. I was left to upgrade to a "40 euro/day" to DS3 compact SUV. The 40/day charge turned out to be 22.16 + 33.33 (stated as customer requested upgrade) + 20% tax. My final bill was 385.63 vs 185.65. The car was great with great mileage and features. The Fiat Panda would be unsafe and inapropriate for the mileage and speed we needed to be driving at. The transaction leaves me not overly impressed by KAYAK's coordination and guarantees of price and quality.

Europe car staff was rude and untruthful. Car had damage on every body panel. When you refuse extra insurance they force you to sign a contract promising to pay nearly double the MSRP if the car if it is damaged. (Fiat 500 MSRP 17k insisted I sign to pay 30k USD)

The car assigned was missing a hubcap and had body damage from a previous rental. No after hours drop off instructions provided for destination, and dark desolate Eurocar drop off location in Grenoble. Due to miscreants loitering in the dark in the area, decided not to risk my life, and left tand incurred an add’l days rental to return following day.

Pela necessidade de acréscimo de um dia a nossa reserva alteraram toda a reserva para o preço atual em vigor, ficando o valor do aluguer 3x superior e acréscimo de 12,50€ por dia por segundo condutor pela exigência de titular de cartão de crédito e condutor ser o mesmo.
