Car Hire late on Saturday

I have booked a Ryanair flight to Grenoble in February and am in need of car hire, however every time I try to book a car for hire it says that they don't operate at this time, as my flight arrives at 10pm on a Saturday in February, is this true? will I have to wait till the Sunday morning to rent a car? Any help will be appreciated, Thanks!

My guess is that the car hire companies are closed at the time you want a car. My suggestion would be to call and see if it's possible to do a pick up that late. I know you can drop off late but I don't think you can pick up unless someone is there.
If you can't pick up that late you might have to want until Sunday morning to hire a car. The only problem I see with that is the fact that the none of the car hire companies in Grenoble are open early Sunday morning, meaning you need to hire at the airport - opening hours on Sunday are listed as 8:30 AM - 4:00 PM. But there aren't any hotels at the airport. So it looks like you need to take the coach service into Grenoble say at a hotel and then go back the next day. The only other thing I can suggest is to stay in Saint Etienne de Saint Geoirs at any of the hotels there. You would have to take a taxi to get there. Good luck, Jeff
