Top tips for hiring a car at Lyon-Saint Exupery 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.

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.
