Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best deals on a Hilo Alamo car rental?
We try to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you book. But getting your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my rental car in Hilo?
You'll need to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Hilo's minimum age to rent a car?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Hilo is 21. Take time to go over Alamo's policy, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category vehicles especially.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Hilo?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Hilo. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and good for short commutes. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a sedan or SUV will have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a little luxury on their Hilo getaway can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent from Alamo. Although many of the major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Alamo car rental?
Alamo requires a deposit when you book your rental. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the model and make of the vehicle.
What is the fuel policy on my Alamo car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full to full policy. You pick up your Alamo rental with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Alamo. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Hilo?
Hilo's small-town atmosphere definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Hilo.
Does Hilo Alamo offer one-way car rentals?
Alamo offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at a different Alamo. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
