ALAMO RENT A CAR

  Important General Rental Information

Alamo Rent A Car has a large selection of quality cars from which to choose ranging from economy to luxury including convertibles and mini-vans. Specific vehicle makes/models within each type, etc., may vary by location, as will vehicle capacity. All vehicles are equipped with automatic transmission, AM/FM Stereo Radio, air conditioning and both driver and front passenger side airbags. Unlimited Mileage is included in all rentals.

Which Vehicle? It is important to choose the car or mini-van and model large enough to comfortably fit your party to ensure comfort and enjoyment while driving . Vehicle comparisons, suggested occupancy and luggage space are for guidance only. It will cost much more to upgrade locally.

Questions to consider: Will your party and luggage comfortably  fit into  the vehicle? Space will be needed for any child seats (compulsory for children up to and including 5 years of age). For larger parties a mini-van will save on the cost of insurance over 2 cars and on the cost of fuel. Upgrading locally will cost more than pre-booking a larger car/mini-van - commonly not thought to be the case, be assured it is.
