Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best prices on a Canberra Alamo rental car?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the lowest rates, whether you reserve your car. But booking well ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Make sure to read 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 rental in Canberra?
Be sure to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's the minimum age to rent a car in Canberra?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Canberra is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 24. Take time to review Alamo's policy to find out if there is an additional cost before you book.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Canberra?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Canberra. Economy or compact automobiles are great for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a sedan or SUV is going to have more room for everyone's suitcases and provide a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their Canberra vacation can choose the premium category to get a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Australia?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in Australia. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, 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 book Collision Damage Coverage with 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. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the car.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Alamo?
We suggest a full to full policy. You receive the car with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring the car back to Alamo.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Canberra certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Alamo offer one-way rentals in Canberra?
Alamo offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your vehicle at a different location. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you pick one-way.
