What you need to know before you go
How do I find the best deals on a Calais Alamo car rental?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best price, whether you book. However, getting your car well ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Make sure to check the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my vehicle in Calais?
Make sure to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's the minimum age to rent a car in Calais?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Calais is 19. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Alamo's policy to know what the total cost is for you.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Calais?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Calais. Compact or economy cars are easier to park and good for short commutes. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a sedan or SUV will have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Calais getaway can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in France?
In France you do need to have insurance before you rent. Many major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) generally cover your car rental. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Calais. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase 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 reserve your vehicle for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the car.
What is the fuel policy on my Alamo car rental?
We advise a full to full policy. You receive the car with the needle at "F". If you return the 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 find a filling station before you return the car to Alamo.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Calais definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Alamo offer one-way rentals in Calais?
Alamo offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your vehicle at another Alamo. Don't forget there is typically an additional charge when you choose one-way.
