Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Houston Alamo car rental at a great price?
We strive to get you the lowest rates, whether you book. However, reserving your car ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Be sure to read the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
What do I need have with me when I pick up my car rental in Houston?
You will need to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Houston?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Houston is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to go over Alamo's policy to find out what the total cost is for you.
What kind of Alamo rental car should I get for my trip to Houston?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Houston. For bigger cities, like Houston, you may find navigating and parking easier in a compact car. Commute times in Houston average 26 minutes, so you may find a mid-size vehicle or SUV provides a more comfortable ride. Or if you want to keep your emissions down, then go for a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a touch of extravagance on their Houston trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United States?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent. Although many of the major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also add on 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 reserve your rental car. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip to Houston. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
What is the fuel policy on my Alamo car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full tank policy. You receive the car 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 find a filling station before you return the car to Alamo.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Houston is a large city, so there is going to be a lot to do. You may not want to be concerned about your mileage limits if you are planning to see what else Texas has to offer. Those wanting to add even more entertainment to their Houston getaway can head to one of the two theme parks in the region. Embrace your inner child, or take the clan to Fun Plex or Zuma Fun Center.
Can I get a one-way rental from Alamo?
Alamo typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your vehicle at a different Alamo. Be aware there is typically an additional fee when you choose one-way.
