What kind of Alamo rental car should I get for my trip to Portland?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Portland. Economy or compact automobiles are easier to park and ideal for short drives. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or a sedan will have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride.

Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in the United States. Many of the major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) typically offer coverage. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Portland.

Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Alamo?
We recommend a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle topped off. However, if you return the rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring your car back to Alamo. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Portland has over half a million people, so there should be plenty to do. Unlimited miles allow you to see what else Oregon has to offer without being concerned about your limits. If you need to add a little fun to your Portland trip, you can also go to Oaks Amusement Park and enjoy an evening riding the park's attractions.
