Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Calgary Alamo car rental at a great rate?
We try to get you the best rates, whether you reserve your vehicle. However, booking your car well ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Make sure to not add an additional driver and check the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my car rental in Calgary?
You'll need to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What is the minimum age to rent a car in Calgary?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Calgary is 21. Make sure to check Alamo's policies, as there could be additional fees if you are under 25 or for higher category rentals especially.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Calgary?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Calgary. Compact or economy cars are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or a sedan will have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Calgary trip can choose the premium category for a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Canada?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from Alamo in Canada. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can add on 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 car. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the model and make of the vehicle.
Do I have to return my Alamo rental with a full tank?
We recommend a full tank policy. You should get into your vehicle topped off. 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 fuel prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to Alamo. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Calgary?
Calgary definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Calgary.
Does Calgary Alamo offer one-way car rentals?
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 fee when you opt for one-way.
