When booking you might need to use the Biarritz Airport code: BIQ

You can hire direct from one of the companies above or with AutoEurope - for pick-up location use 'BIQ'.

When calling from outside France drop the first '0' of the number you want to call. 33 is the country code for France.

Car hire desks are inside the terminal. The outside car hire buildings are next to car parks P0/P8. When dropping off just follow the signs.

If you're a non-EU citizen or EU citizen living outside the EU and traveling for more than 17 days, then you should think about a Buy Back car, as it can be cheaper than car hire. The idea is simple, you buy a brand new Peugeot, drive it during your vacation and then when you're done you sell the car back. For more information see Buy Back Cars with Peugeot.
