Auto Europa Kansas City International Airport Airport
Kansas City International Airport, with the IATA code of MCI, is found in the American state of Missouri. It serves Kansas City, and approximately ten million passengers per annum. The airport has all the facilities that can be expected, for arriving and departing passengers, and is served by several airline companies, of which the busiest are Southwest Airlines and Delta Air Lines. Recent improvements at the airport included a new rental car facility, a short distance from the terminal buildings, and here Auto Europa and a selection of other car hire companies can be found. They all offer competitive car rental rates and a wide range of high quality vehicles for hire.
The car rental centre of the airport is located on the corners of London and Paris, and Bern and London Streets, and is a spacious establishment with plenty of room for the offices of all the car hire companies. There are also plenty of parking spaces for the hired vehicles. Although it is not within walking distance of the three airport terminals, passengers will still find car hire from this location convenient, as free shuttle buses are available. The buses carry a number of passengers and luggage items at one time, and are available every few minutes. There are also four bus stops outside of each terminal. Some consider the signage to the shuttle stops to be poor, therefore find one of the airport ambassadors to help you if necessary. They are dressed in red-brick blazers and are found at the information desks. They may also be circulating the buildings.
A rented car is most useful for travelling the city, and for travelling to areas that are nearby. Kansas City has a well organized road network, with interstates that branch out to nearby towns. Motorists can even drive quite easily in the downtown area, and will find several parking lots at their disposal. The road are generally well signposted, and speed limits are posted in most areas. Always obey the speed limits and other road rules, which include the wearing of seatbelts, to avoid fines. The renter of the vehicle is responsible for any traffic fine, and not the car rental company. Since that seatbelts are required by all travellers, a child seat will be necessary to hire from Auto Europa for younger family members. The seats come in various sizes, and are therefore suitable for infants or older children.
The Kansas City International Airport car hire companies hire satellite navigation systems which can be very useful for ‘first-time’ drivers in the area. The device is usually pre-programmed with many points of interest, is able to provide accurate directions to any destination and may include a selection of languages. It can also provide useful information regarding the traffic conditions in the surrounding area.
The airport is completely accessible to disabled passengers, and the car hire companies offer various services to persons with mobility challenges as well. Auto Europa hand controls are available on certain types of vehicles for persons with a lower limb disability, and are free of charge from Kansas City International Airport. Hand control equipment requires an advanced reservation as it will need to be fitted to the vehicle.
