Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best rates on a Caen Alamo car rental?
We try to get you the lowest price, no matter when you reserve your car. But getting ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
What should I bring with me when I get my car in Caen?
Be sure to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Caen?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Caen is 18. Take time to go over Alamo's policy, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category rentals in particular.
What kind of Alamo rental car should I get for my trip to Caen?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Caen. Economy or compact vehicles are easier to park and great for short drives. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a mid-size car or SUV will have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a dash of luxury on their Caen trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does France require car insurance?
In France 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. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Caen. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage with 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 reserve your rental car. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Caen. Please be aware 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?
We recommend a full tank policy. You pick up your Alamo rental with full tank, and you should bring it back it topped off. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a filling station before you bring it back to Alamo.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Caen?
Caen certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities in Caen.
Can I get a one-way rental from Alamo?
Alamo offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at another Alamo. However, there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
