SIXT’s location at Lyon Airport

Car hire at LYS isn’t located directly in the terminal, but it’s easy to find after you have landed. Take the free PR3 shuttle bus to the car hire branch, which can be found by following the signs in the arrival hall. There’s no need to rush as these buses are scheduled very often throughout the day. If you have arrived from the train station, there will be similar signs pointing you to the same bus service. When it comes to returning your car, follow sings for ‘Location de Voitures’, which directs you to the SIXT branch at Rue d’Autriche. From here, you can catch the free bus to the airport. 

Explore Lyon with your car hire

Explore the marvels of Lyon and its fascinating tourist attractions. Take a stroll up to the hilltop church of La Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere and enjoy great views and an interesting tour of the museum. Nearby you’ll find the Gallo-Roman Museum of Lyon-Fourviere, where you can learn about Roman antiquities and artifacts. Get your history fix by jumping in your Lyon hire car and driving to Perouges, a walled medieval town about 40 km away from the city.

Rented few times at this location and staff are always great for pick up and drop off. Overall an hassle free place to rent a car.

Once the car wasn’t ready but the gentleman who is in charge of getting the car cleaned and ready rushed it so I did not have to wait to much and within 10mn the car was ready and I was hitting the road. Much appreciated!

Andrew K.

Excellent service from the front desk and speedy car retrieval. The agent even programmed the vehicle GPS to English not French, a service I never got anywhere.


As I said, it was good to be back in France after few years to such a wonderful start.

It was smooth and nice experience. I like driving with sixt. Booked the car on the app, got a fair rate, the location is in the parkings of the airport, accessible with free shuttle bus. Nice and polite staff. I have chosen a BMW z4. I highly recommend it hor this region. Driving a soft top car in the autumn sun through the country. Uh. Magic.
