Angouleme Airport Car Hire - Instant Quote


Angouleme - ANG

Angoulême is in the Charente department of western France, an area becoming more and more popular with the British both for holidays and for permanent residence.

Angoulême is a fairly new destination in the Ryanair network, flights having started in April 2008 from Stanstead.  The airport is 15km to the north-east of the city just off the D12 road linking Angoulême and Limoges, and is also signposted from the A10 motorway.

Angoulême itself is an attractive city on the banks of the River Charante, the old part high above the river and the modern bustling town down in the valley.

Hertz, Avis and Europcar have desks at Angoulême airport.  This is not a busy airport and the desks are not manned at all times but only when flights are expected.  It is very important to reserve your car in advance as none of these companies keeps stocks of vehicles at the airport.

Angouleme Airport Arrivals

Arriving at Angoulême is a totally stress-free experience.  You will have to carry your hand luggage down the aircraft steps and across a short piece of tarmac to enter the terminal building but there are absolutely no long corridors, stairs or escalators to negotiate.  You won’t have to check a screen to see which baggage carousel to wait beside – there is only one.

Just collect your baggage if you have any, and walk through to the outside.  If you are meeting someone from a flight, our Live Angoulême Airport Arrivals will give you the information you need to time your journey.

Angouleme Airport Departures

Angoulême airport departures are as low-key as arrivals.  Remember, you will have to mount the steps of the aircraft so if you are going to need special assistance, book it when you book your ticket, and check again when you check in.

The airport is well designed for those of reduced mobility with wheelchair ramps, adapted toilets etc and there is wifi access throughout the terminal building.  Check-in queues are not long and unless you want to check in early and go for a meal in the restaurant, do not arrive too early as there is nothing much to do. 

Angouleme Airport Taxis

The Angouleme airport taxi rank is just outside the terminal and the taxis arrive to meet the incoming flights.

The ride into Angoulême should take about 15 minutes and cost in the region of 30 euros.  Cognac to the west is about 30 minutes away and should cost in the region of 80 euros.  It is always a good idea to agree the price before you set out.

Angouleme Airport Buses

There is a shuttle bus available to both Angoulême and Cognac.  The fare into Angoulême is 5 euros one way.  Angouleme airport buses wait outside the terminal building – you can’t miss them.

The Angouleme airport car park is not huge but then it doesn’t need to be.  With 250 spaces it is more than adequate.  The wonderful thing about parking at Angoulême airport is that it is free at time of writing.  Will it remain free?  Who knows.
