Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Banff Alamo rental car at a great price?
We strive to get you the lowest price, whether you book. But booking your car well ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Make sure to read the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my rental car in Banff?
Be sure to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Banff?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Banff is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Alamo's policy to know if there is an additional cost for you.
What kind of Alamo rental car should I get for my trip to Banff?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Banff. Economy or compact cars are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a sedan or SUV will have more room and be a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their Banff trip can choose a higher-end category like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Canada?
In Canada you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Alamo. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. 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 does require a deposit when you book your rental car. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Alamo?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full to full policy. You pick up your Alamo rental with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Alamo. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Banff?
Banff certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Banff.
Does Alamo offer one-way rentals in Banff?
Alamo offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at another Alamo. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you choose one-way.
