When we showed up at 10 that morning, I was immediately asked if we'd be interested in a free upgrade. I said we would but we couldn't use what they offered. The man told me give me time and I'll have you in something suitable. we came back at 3 and he had a Chrysler 3000 for us. We didn't have to return it until around 3 seven days later. The car drove well and it was closer to home. They also have unlimited miles.

I rented a car for a short business trip and the pick-up and return process was easy, and the car was nice. The staff were very helpful when I mistakenly left my wallet in the car after returning it. I discovered the missing wallet as I went to check into my flight, and hurried back to Alamo. The staff immediately contacted another staffer who was out with the rental car, and he quickly checked it for me and returned my wallet ASAP. Everyone was very nice and helpful!

Friendly and helpful staff. Because this was a smaller location, there is no attendant on duty so you have to walk in and return your car at the counter. If you’re flying out, allow extra time. Tracey was extremely helpful and accommodating

What age do you have to be to rent a car in Columbia?

Typically, the age limit for renting a car in Columbia is 21—the same as it is across the rest of the United States of America. Additionally, many suppliers charge an added fee if you are under 25. Be sure to read over the terms to find what the exact fee is before you book your vehicle.

Does Columbia require rental car insurance?

Insurance is always needed, no matter where you're renting a car. That said, you might already be covered by your credit card or car policies.

Are there different fuel policies?

Most suppliers give you a choice of fuel policies. Here is a list of the typical policies.

What fuel policy should I get?

We usually suggest that you choose the full-to-full policy. This policy is the most straightforward, and you simply top off the tank before you bring it back.

Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Columbia?

Unlimited miles is a great choice if you decide to do a bit of sightseeing or visit a lot of customers all over Columbia. You can cruise as much as you want and not incur extra charges. Go over your rental agreement to see if there are mileage limitations.

Before you leave the lot

Be sure you check a few things before you leave the lot on your Columbia adventure. You should:

  • Inspect the car and make sure there is no damage or scrapes. If so, mark it down on the paperwork
  • Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
  • Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
  • Figure out how to work the radio or entertainment features. It's best to limit any unneeded distractions when you are driving around a new city
