Alamo Rent a Car – or just plain Alamo to most of us – is among the car rental brands many people will instantly recognize. Founded in 1944 in Orlando, Florida, Alamo has spent over four decades growing and growing. It’s now a subsidiary of Enterprise, which is also among the world’s most popular car rental brands. Like Enterprise, Alamo stores are a common sight at airports and in city centers all over the planet. The company now has branches throughout North America, South America, Asia, Europe and Oceania. When you rent an Alamo car using the Orbitz website, you’ll have access to the best deals and the best possible range of cars. You’ll also have the comfort of knowing your rental car will be ready to pick up as soon as you reach your destination – no delays, and no stress.
If you’re considering using Alamo car rental, you might have a few questions first. We’ve gone over the fundamentals below.
This is all about where you are, but in most countries and states, you’ll have to be over 21. There’s generally a surcharge for under-25s, who may also have a limited choice of vehicles available to them.
While there is no upper age limit for car rental in the US, this may be the case in some countries. A mature driver surcharge may also be requested outside of the US.
Alamo has cars, SUVs, vans and trucks. The specific vehicles available vary depending on where you are, but a typical economy model offered by Alamo might be a Mitsubishi Mirage, while sporty convertibles such as the Ford Mustang are also generally an option. Jeeps and Nissan or Ford pickup trucks may also be available.
Alamo is like any car rental company: you’ll need a driver’s license and a credit card. If you want to pay with a debit card, this may be an option, but you may need additional documentation, such as proof of address or an airline ticket, so ask in advance.
When you rent an Alamo car abroad you’ll be asked for your passport, and you may need an international driving permit in some countries.
