Do I need to bring anything special when I get my car rental in Athlone?
You'll need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Athlone's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Athlone set the minimum age to rent a car at 21. Make sure to review Alamo's policies, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category rentals especially.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Athlone?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Athlone. Compact or economy automobiles are good for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or a sedan will have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a dash of luxury on their Athlone getaway can choose the premium category for a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Ireland?
In Ireland you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Alamo. Many 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 Athlone.

What is the fuel policy on my Alamo car rental?
We recommend 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 find a gas station before you bring it back to Alamo. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Athlone certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
