Bastia Airport Car Rental

Bastia Airport Basics.....

On the Corsica Island, sits the Bastia Airport.  The island is one of the 27 regions of the country of France.  The airport sits at the very Northernmost area of the island.  About 1 million folks are transported thru the airport every year, traveling to and from airports mostly throughout the region.
Bastia Airport Car Rental.....

Car rental companies located at the Bastia Airport include Europcar, Hertz, Avis, Ada and National/Citer.  Each has an agent at the airport location.  Actual vehicles are located right in front of the smallish terminal.  When you exit, simply look beyond the immediate parking are, about 100 meters across the parking lot and you will see the black and yellow Hertz and the green Europcar car rental buildings.  Avis, National/Citer and Ada car rental services are actually located behind Europcar building.  Each of these facilities are within walking distance from the terminal.

When leaving the car rental facility in your rental car, you will simply travel out at the traffic circle on D507.  After driving on D507 for a little over 3 km, you will turn right onto N193, taking the first exit at the traffic circle.  A green "Bastia" directional sign will be posted showing you the way.  Drive for about 17 or 18 km into the city center.  While on this road, watch for signage leading you into the city.  There are a few twists and turns along the way, just make sure that you stay on D193.  As you get closer, you will be able to see the Tyrrhenian Sea along the way.

When returning the rental car, simply travel South on D193 to get back to the airport.  When getting close to the road that you exited on at the traffic circle, you will notice a Total service / fueling station on the right-hand side.  This would be a great place to re-fuel before returning your rental vehicle.  Most (if not all) car rental companies at the Bastia Airport currently adopt the 'full-full' fuel policy.  This simply means that you will pick up your rental car with a full tank, and you should return it with a full tank as well.
Hotels Near the Bastia Airport.....

If you’re looking for a decent night’s stay at a hotel very near the airport, you might look into the Hotel les Jardins de la Madrague.  The hotel is located about 1.5 km from the car rental location at the Airport.  To get there, simply travel back South (in the opposite direction as directed above) towards the South Bastia Airport exit.  At the first traffic circle, you should see the hotel sign right at the traffic circle.  Go thru the circle and travel in front of the Budget Car Rental building on your right.  Continue on for a few hundred meters and then turn right (another sign will be posted).  Travel about 500 meters more and the hotel will be on your right-hand side. 

The hotel offers a pretty good (not spectacular, but pretty good) place to stay.  Great customer service and a good breakfast help.  Also, the hotel has an outdoor pool to help you relax during your stay.  The rooms are fairly inexpensive, especially given the close location to the airport.

Other Bastia Car Rental Items.....

While you’re at it, you might check on availability for downtown Bastia car rental quotes.  Prices are generally quite a bit cheaper on off-airport locations, and the same is true for Bastia.  There are a couple of rental car locations down at the port, near the coastline.  Simply type in Bastia in the pickup box above and choose the Bastia – Corsica location.
