Unfortunately our car which we normally use to go to Girona Airport packed up. Does anyone know a car rental which allows us to rent the car in France and drop it at Girona airport?

We used the Fairfx card last year to purchase Ryanair flights. It saved us a lot of charges, certainly 100 pounds or more.
