Montpellier Airport Car Rental

Montpellier Airport Basics.....
 

Also known as the Frejorgues Airport, the Montpellier sits about 8 km from the city of Montpellier itself.  It currently ranks in the top 10 in terms of traffic to or from the airport.  The airport is fairly smallish, but offers many low-cost options via Easyjet, Ryanair and Transavia.

Montpellier Airport Car Rental.....
 

Although the airport is small, there are several options when it comes to car hire.  Hertz, Sixt, Europcar, National, Avis and Alamo each offer car rental services.  Each company has a desk situated in the arrivals area of the airport, and cars are located in front of the terminal as well - so there will be no need of some off-site shuttle service to another location.  To find your vehicle, first stop and speak with your agent, then walk out in front of the terminal about 100 meters to access your vehicle.

To get to the city of Montpellier, simply exit the airport area until you encounter your first traffic circle.  There will be a sign on one of the exits that says "toutes directions" which means 'all directions' in English.  Take that exit and travel a little less than 1 km, then veer right at the next traffic circle and then veer right again, instead of going under the bridge.  You will be directed towards A9 (you won't use A9, but instead you will drive over the top of it) and Montpellier.  Drive for a little over 6 km on D66 from that above-mentioned bridge and then the road will fork.  Continue straight thru the stoplight at the Hotel Mercure.  Continue watching for signage directing you to Monpellier - Center from this point on.

When returning your rental vehicle back to the airport, you will want to travel via D66 again.  You will also want to refuel your rental vehicle at a nearby service station, saving yourself petrol cash.  Car rental companies at the Montpellier Airport operate on a 'full-full' fuel policy - simply meaning that you will pick up your rental car with a full tank of petrol at the station, and that you should return the car with a full tank of fuel.  So, we recommend that you fill up at a Soleil Dyneff gas station near the airport.  The station sits about 400 meters from the traffic circle at the entrance/exit near the airport.  It is on the left-hand side as you are traveling back to the airport.


Hotels or Restaurants Near the Montpellier Airport.....
 

In our opinion, the only hotel (close enough to the Montpellier Airport to be called an airport hotel) that we would want to stay for night or two is the Kyriad Montpellier Mediterranee Aeroport.  It's situated behind the Soleil Dyneff gas station mentioned above and offers a free shuttle service to and from the airport - just in case you didn't rent a vehicle at the airport.  The hotel has an outdoor swimming pool to the back of the hotel, a pretty decent shower and Wi-Fi in the hotel.  Breakfast is fairly pricey, but it is a buffet, so you can eat all you want.  Parking is free, and there is a full restaurant within the hotel, but we can't attest to its quality.
