Do I need to bring anything special when I get my rental car in Wilmington?
You will need to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Wilmington's minimum age to rent a car?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Wilmington is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to go over Alamo's policy to determine if there is an additional cost before you book.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Wilmington?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Wilmington. Compact or economy cars are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. Commute times in Wilmington average 34 minutes, so you may find a SUV or mid-size car more comfortable. If you want to lower your emissions and save on gas, then opt for a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their Wilmington getaway can choose a higher-end category like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 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 a car from Alamo. Many of the major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) typically offer coverage. But many of them have limitations, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Wilmington. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Alamo require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Alamo requires a deposit when you book your rental. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to return my Alamo rental with a full tank?
We encourage a full to full policy. You pick up your Alamo rental with full tank, and you should bring it back it filled up. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Alamo. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Wilmington has enough to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to find out what else North Carolina has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in Wilmington. If you need to add some excitement to your Wilmington trip, you can also drive to Jungle Rapids and enjoy a night taking on the park's attractions.
