Toulon Airport Car Rental

Toulon – Hyeres Airport Basics…

The Toulon – Hyeres Airport is actually situated in Hyeres, the smaller of the two towns that it’s named after.  The phone number for the airport is +33 825 01 83 87 and the official address is Boulevard de la Marine, 83400 Hyeres, France.  Geographically, the facility borders into the Italian Riviera (aka Riviera Ligure di Ponente) and when you exit the airport area, you have a beautiful view in your rental car into the body of water.

About 600,000 folks use the Toulon Airport.  Many of these are flying into the area as tourists, and less are residents of the area trying to get out of the area for one reason or another.

Toulon Airport Car Rental…

Currently, six car rental companies work out of the Toulon Airport.  These include Europcar, Hertz, National, Budget, Sixt and Avis.  Each company sets up shop not far from the baggage claim area and can be found fairly easily.

The rental vehicles (vans, SUV’s, luxury cars, economy cars, etc) can be found right outside in the P3  parking lot.  In fact, if you were to walk out of the front of the terminal, turn to your right and walk about 50 meters.  The rentals will be stored on a surface lot adjacent to the terminal.  Signs are posted and cars are easily accessible.

Toulon Airport Directions to Downtown Toulon…

From the picture below, you can see that when you come out of the airport, you will have the sea (and a sign pointing to Toulon) in front of you.  Turn right and drive a little over 1 km until you get to a traffic circle, and take the first exit.  You will drive about 3 km until you get to a stop sign.  Turn right and go underneath a bridge and immediately encounter another traffic circle where you will take the 3rd exit to stay on Av. Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire.  Drive a few hundred meters until you get to N98 (each of the above twists and turns are pretty well-signed, so drive slowly and pay attention.  Remember if you make a mistake at a traffic circle; continue to go around it until you find the right exit off.

At the next ‘T’ there will be a stop light.  You should turn left on it as you will be getting on the N98 which will eventually turn into A570.  This stretch of road will continue on for about 7.5 km.  Then veer left onto A57 (you’ll see some beautiful mountains right in front of you here) and travel all the way into the city.

Toulon Airport Car Rental Return…

When coming back to the airport with your rental car, you will find several places to re-fuel on your way back.  In fact, when you turn off of D98 and onto D559 - about 3 or 4 km from the airport - there is an E. Leclerc (a French convenience store chain) and an Esso station and a Casino Fueling Station as well.  All three are on the right-hand side of the road.  But probably the best (and last) place to re-fuel before getting back is at a Total Station a couple of km’s from the airport.

If you forget to re-fuel before you get to the airport turn off, you’re out of luck for a while.  We don’t know of any gas stations AFTER the airport turn-in for several kilometers.

Hotels Near the Toulon Airport…

If you’re looking for something close to the airport (and that is your most important factor in your decision) then the best of breed might just be the Hotel Restaurant La Reine Jane.  Rated as a 3-star hotel, you could do quite a bit worse than this one.  It sits a couple of km’s to the North of the airport on 1 Quai Des Cormorans, 83400 Hyères.  You can pick up a pretty good night’s sleep (and a decent breakfast to boot) here.  Prices are typically fairly affordable considering the location to the airport and the Italian Riviera.  The Southern-facing rooms have terraces looking out over the beautiful water.
