Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best rates on a Blenheim Alamo car rental?
We strive to get you the best price, no matter when you book. But getting your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to read the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
What do I need to bring when I pick up my car in Blenheim?
Make sure to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Blenheim's minimum age to rent a car?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Blenheim is 21. Make sure to review Alamo's policies, as there could be additional fees if you are under 25 or for higher category vehicles in particular.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Blenheim?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Blenheim. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and great for short drives. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their Blenheim trip can choose the premium category to get a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in New Zealand?
In New Zealand you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Alamo. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, provide 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. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can book 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 book your rental for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the car.
What is the fuel policy on my Alamo car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full tank policy. You pick up your Alamo rental topped off. If you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current gas prices to refill it. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring your car back to Alamo.
Do I need unlimited miles when I rent a car in Blenheim?
Blenheim definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Blenheim.
Does Blenheim Alamo offer one-way car rentals?
Alamo typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at a different Alamo. Be aware there may be an additional charge when you pick one-way.
