Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Barcelona Alamo rental car at a great rate?
We strive to get you the lowest price, no matter when you book. But booking your car ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and go over the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my rental car in Barcelona?
You will need to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Barcelona's minimum age to rent a car?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Barcelona is 19. Take time to go over Alamo's policies, as there may be added fees if you are under 25 or for higher category vehicles in particular.
What kind of Alamo rental car should I get for my trip to Barcelona?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Barcelona. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a sedan or SUV will have more room for everyone's belongings and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Barcelona trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does Spain require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from Alamo in Spain. Many of the major credit card issuers (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) generally provide some coverage. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Barcelona. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Alamo car rental?
Alamo does require a deposit when you reserve your rental. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle 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 return my Alamo rental with a full tank?
We advise a full to full policy. You receive the car topped off. If you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. 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.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Barcelona certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Barcelona Alamo offer one-way car rentals?
Alamo usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental car at another location. Don't forget there is typically an additional charge when you pick one-way.
