What's the minimum age to rent a car in Bristol?

Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Bristol?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Bristol. Compact or economy automobiles are great for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a little luxury on their Bristol getaway can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Does the United Kingdom require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent In the United Kingdom. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Alamo require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Alamo requires a deposit when you book your rental car. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to return my Alamo rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full tank policy. You pick up your Alamo rental with the needle at "F". 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 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Alamo. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Bristol definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Bristol.
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 rental at another Alamo. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
