What you need to know about car rentals in Bordeaux
How do I get a Bordeaux Alamo car rental at a great rate?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the lowest rates, whether you reserve your vehicle. But getting your car well ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Make sure to check the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my car in Bordeaux?
You will need to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Bordeaux's minimum age to rent a car?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Bordeaux is 19. Take time to check Alamo's policies, as there could be added fees if you are under 25 or for higher category cars in particular.
What kind of Alamo rental car should I get for my trip to Bordeaux?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Bordeaux. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have more room and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Bordeaux trip can choose the premium category to get a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does France require car insurance?
In France you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Many of the major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) generally cover your car rental. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Bordeaux. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also 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. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip to Bordeaux. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
What is the fuel policy on my Alamo car rental?
We suggest a full to full policy. You pick up your Alamo rental with the needle at "F". If you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring the car back to Alamo. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Bordeaux definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Bordeaux.
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 location. Be aware there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
