Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Albany?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Albany. Economy or compact automobiles are easier to park and great for short drives. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or a sedan will have more room for luggage and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Albany getaway can choose the premium category to get a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does the United States require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent from Alamo in the United States. Although many of the major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, give 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 also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.

Do I have to return my Alamo rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full to full policy. You receive the car topped off. But, if you return your 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 fill up your tank before you return the car to Alamo.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Albany has lots to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to find out what else New York has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in Albany. If you are wishing to add some fun to your Albany trip, you can also go to Huck Finn's Playland and enjoy a day riding the park's attractions.
Can I get a one-way rental from Alamo?
