What you need to know before you go
How do I get an Aachen Alamo rental car at a great price?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest rates, whether you book. However, booking your car ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Be sure to go over the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my rental car in Aachen?
Be sure to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Aachen's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Aachen require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to read through Alamo's policies to determine what the total cost is for you.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Aachen?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Aachen. Compact or economy cars are ideal for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Aachen getaway can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Germany?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in Germany. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Alamo require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Alamo does require a deposit when you book your rental. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to return my Alamo rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full to full policy. You pick up your Alamo rental topped off. If you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a gas station before you bring it back to Alamo. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Do I need unlimited miles when I rent a car in Aachen?
Aachen certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Alamo offer one-way rentals in Aachen?
Alamo offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at a different Alamo. Don't forget there is typically an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
