What you need to know for the road
How do I find the best deals on a Boise Alamo car rental?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best rates, whether you reserve your vehicle. However, booking your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to go over the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
What do I need have with me when I get my rental car in Boise?
You'll need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Boise's minimum age to rent a car?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Boise is 21. Take time to check Alamo's policies, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category cars in particular.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Boise?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Boise. Compact or economy vehicles are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a sedan or SUV will have more room for everyone's suitcases and offer a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a touch of extravagance on their Boise getaway can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does the United States require car insurance?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Alamo. Many of the major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) typically provide some coverage. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Be sure to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Boise. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage through 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 book your rental car. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip to Boise. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the car.
What is the fuel policy on my Alamo car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full tank 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. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you bring it back to Alamo. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Boise has plenty to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to find out what else Idaho has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in Boise.
Can I get a one-way rental from Alamo?
Alamo offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your rental car at a different Alamo. However, there is typically an additional charge when you choose one-way.
