What you need to know before you go
How do I find the best deals on a Champaign Alamo car rental?
We strive to get you the best price, whether you book. But booking well ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and go over the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my rental car in Champaign?
Make sure to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Champaign's minimum age to rent a car?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Champaign is 21. Make sure to check Alamo's policies, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category vehicles especially.
What kind of Alamo rental car should I get for my trip to Champaign?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Champaign. Economy or compact vehicles are easier to park and great for short commutes. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or a sedan will have more room and provide a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Champaign trip can choose the premium category to get a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does the United States require car insurance?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Alamo. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. 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 book your rental. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Champaign. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to return my Alamo rental with a full tank?
We advise a full tank policy. You pick up your Alamo rental 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 triple 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.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Champaign?
Champaign has enough to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to find out what else Illinois has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits after you've gone out in Champaign's downtown or gone out in Champaign's downtown.
Can I get a one-way rental from Alamo?
Alamo usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your vehicle at another location. However, there may be an additional fee when you pick one-way.
