Nice Dropoff

Since 2015 the dropoff location in Nice has been at Terminal 2. The BMW map location for TT Car Transit is at odds with some other sources, so if anyone has been at the new location; where exactly is it located?

Hi Gerwil,

We just dropped off in April at what I believe to be the new location (Terminal 2). Here is the link to the google map location: https://www.google.com/maps/place/43...496!4d7.202711

In addition below is a map and document provided by Nice TT when I reserved.

This was the fourth drop off location I've had a chance to visit (Frankfurt, and both Munich locations previously). I thought the check in process was the most thorough (the man actually got on the ground to inspect the underbody of the car. Please note that I did not see any other BMW's in their lot and it did take me quite a bit longer to get this car back than prior deliveries. I'd recommend setting up an appointment with them as the service down there appears to be rather slow.

The location is super convenient for catching a flight, or catching a bus back to town (which is what my wife and I did). We really loved Nice, and if you are looking for a hotel we really enjoyed the Hotel Petit Palias. I believe it is #1 or #2 on Tripadvisor, located in a quiet neighborhood above town (easy walk to the Promenade of Arts), and they had secure parking (must be reserved, they only had 2-3 locations.

Let me know if I can be of any additional help, good luck on planning your ED!

43-39-30.6"N - 7-12-09-8"E

Nice Dropoff

Just dropped off a couple of weeks ago. Still terminal 2. Just go straight on the "authorized vehicle" lane just before you would turn the corner to enter the parking garage. Or do like us and pass it up, enter the parking garage and then exit, loop around again and do it right

You will come to a little guard post and TT Car entrance is just beyond that on the right.

I used this site for directions. I was a little concerned I wouldn't find it but it turned out to be easy.

I used the directions in the Wiki which worked fine -

I will probably be dropping off in Nice every time. Tough to beat a Tuscany -> Italian Riviera -> French Riviera finish.

I was initially confused by the coordinates since they are at the intersection that leads to the TT Car parking area and not the location inside the Terminal. Now that I understand that there is a parking area, everyting became clear when I switched to Earth View. Another problem is that the BMW ED Nice Dropoff location map, on its web site shows TT located at the left end of the terminal.

Thank you. Your attachments are helpful.. I am still waiting for an answer to my email from TT. The first one I sent bounced and I see from the attachment that they have another address..
We will be arriving in Nice via the overnight ferry from Corsica. Our plan is to drive into Nice (will check out your hotel recommendation), get rid of our luggage, and then drop the car off.
Our last two dropoffs were Hamburg and Amsterdam; both very fast, and am prepared for this one to take longer.
