What you need to know for the road

Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my rental car in Cedar Rapids?
Make sure to bring your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Cedar Rapids's minimum age to rent a car?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Cedar Rapids is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Alamo's policies to determine what the total cost is for you.
What kind of Alamo rental car should I get for my trip to Cedar Rapids?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Cedar Rapids. Economy or compact automobiles are easier to park and great for short commutes. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a sedan or SUV will have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a dash of extravagance on their Cedar Rapids getaway 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 the United States?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent from Alamo. Many of the major credit card issuers (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) usually cover your car rental. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Cedar Rapids. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can book Collision Damage Coverage through 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 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.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Alamo?
We suggest a full tank policy. You should get into your 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, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Alamo. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Cedar Rapids has plenty to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to find out what else Iowa has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in Cedar Rapids.
Does Alamo offer one-way rentals in Cedar Rapids?
Alamo typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at a different Alamo. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
