SIXT’s location at Lyon Airport

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.
