The main target groups of Firefly are travellers in Spain, Italy and France. Firefly has over 100 car hire locations in 13 countries which make us able to offer Firefly for most car rental requests.
Firefly is able to offer very cheap rates in comparison to other car hire companies as they are usually not located in the terminal. Other companies that have a location at the airport pay high airport taxes that Firefly does not have. In most cases there is a shuttle service that will take you from the airport to the Firefly office. This important pick-up information you can find on your Auto Europe voucher.
One of the main conditions to pick up the car is that the main driver has to have a valid driving licence that should be in the possession of the main driver since at least 1 year. In case the driving licence is not written in Roman alphabet, an international licence might be required. The age requirements for car hire with Firefly may differ per country. Drivers in Spain have to be at least 21 years old. In Italy the minimum age is normally 23 years old, but driving at this age is made possible by Firefly with an additional young driver surcharge. Firefly accepts all international European credit cards. Please be advised that in case the main driver only has a debit card, an additional insurance will have to be purchased. Cash is not accepted.
Firefly can offer clients additional options for a fee, such as 24h emergency service, which is available 365 days a year, unlimited mileage, child seats and booster seats, optional insurances and additional drivers. The rate of these optional services can be requested online via Auto Europe website or you can contact our experienced reservation team via our toll-free number: 0800 358 1229. If you are planning a one-way rental, leaving the car at a different location than you will pick-up the car, we recommend you to contact Auto Europe in advance. We would be happy to advise you on your travel plans. Firefly?s wide selection of car categories makes it a great choice for your car hire supplier. From small cars that are ideal for two people and easy to park to the affordable upper class cars that are comfortable in size and have powerful engines. Firefly might be a budget brand but this does not influence its vehicles fleet and comfort. Decide for a car hire from Firefly with Auto Europe and start your journey worry-free.
