About EasyJet Airlines (U2)
EasyJet Airlines (U2), branded as easyJet, is a British budget airline with its primary hub at London Luton Airport. The airline operates domestic and international flights to 136 destinations on over 1,000 routes in more than 30 countries. Along with its subsidiaries, easyJet carries over 65 million passengers per year, adding up to the second-largest low-cost carrier in Europe, after Ryanair.
EasyJet’s codesharing agreements add another 125 destinations in 76 countries to its overall passenger traffic, providing service to destinations outside of Europe, including Abu Dhabi, Delhi, Bangkok, Cape Town, Singapore and Sydney. Otherwise, the majority of easyJet’s most popular destinations are found in the United Kingdom and the rest of Europe, with routes from London to Glasgow, Amsterdam, Lisbon, and Paris among its “base” hub system. The airline also offers a wide range of seasonal flights to hot spots in the Baltics, Mediterranean, and North Africa.
Choosing your car
Big EasyJet car rental savings are in your future when you match your flight with a car hire from Europcar. However, we can help you team up with a wider range of car rental companies with special deals, including Avis, Alamo, National, Enterprise, and Sixt. You won’t be lacking for choice when it comes to vehicle types. Select from ultra efficient minicars and compact and economy sedans. You’ll still get a great deal on standard, intermediate, and fullsize sedans, premium and luxury vehicles, SUVs, estate wagons, and 7-12 seater minivans.
Tips for easyJet Passengers Renting Cars
As a value-based operation, easyJet gives you a number of ways to save on a cheap car rental, but it’s always wise to read the terms and conditions before handing over your credit card and signing the agreement.
Aside from the provisional Collision/Loss Damage Waiver (CDW/LDW) and Theft Protection, everything — and we mean everything is an extra with an easyJet car hire, from GPS to child seats to roadside assistance and additional drivers, all of which are available at an added expense. Likewise, you’ll save by dropping off the car at the same location you rented it from.
If your mobile phone data plan includes international roaming, you can save on GPS by using the hands-free device as a navigational system. After all, Google Maps is using the same technology. But be advised that you’ll pay for the cell phone holder — another extra classified as a “definitive purchase”, and not a daily fee.
Minimum ages to rent a car from country to country, but easyJet car rental drivers must be 26 years of age — a break from the industry-wide standard of 25.
Unlimited mileage isn’t included in an easyJet car rental.
The rental deposit will be pre-authorized on your credit card at the time of rental pickup, but not billed to your account. Debit cards are not accepted for booking but may be allowed for payment of the final bill. It’s highly recommended that your credit card be valid for 6 months after the rental period ends, since many additional surcharges could take a while to be billed to your account. Typically, this will be spelled out in your rental agreement, which is why it’s important to read the fine print.
