Frequently asked questions
How do I get the best rates on a Birmingham Alamo car rental?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the lowest price, whether you book. However, booking ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
What should I carry with me when I get my car rental in Birmingham?
Be sure to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Birmingham's minimum age to rent a car?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Birmingham 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 policies to know what the total cost is before you book.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Birmingham?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Birmingham. Compact or economy cars are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a mid-size car or SUV will have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Birmingham vacation can choose a higher-end car model like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in the United States. Although many of the major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on 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 car. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip to Birmingham. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the model and make of the rental.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Alamo?
We suggest a full tank policy. You receive the car with the needle at "F". But, if you return the rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. For a cheaper rate, 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?
Birmingham has enough to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to find out what else Alabama has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits once you've checked off all the activities in Birmingham.
Can I get a one-way rental from Alamo?
Alamo offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your vehicle at another Alamo. Be aware there may be an additional charge when you pick one-way.
