What you need to know for the road
How do I get a Buffalo Alamo rental car at a great price?
We strive to get you the best rates, whether you book. However, getting ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to go over the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my car in Buffalo?
You'll need to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Buffalo's minimum age to rent a car?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Buffalo is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to read through Alamo's policy to know if there is an additional cost before you book.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Buffalo?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Buffalo. Economy or compact vehicles are good for short commutes and are easier to park. Commute times in Buffalo average 31 minutes, so you may find a mid-size car or SUV more comfortable. Or if you want to keep your emissions down, then choose a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Buffalo trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent from Alamo in the United States. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Alamo car rental?
Alamo requires a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the make and model of the vehicle.
What is the fuel policy on my Alamo car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full tank policy. You should receive your car with a full tank. If you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current gas prices to refill it. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank 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?
Buffalo has enough to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to find out what else New York has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in Buffalo.
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 at another Alamo. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you choose one-way.
