Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Charleston Alamo rental car at a great rate?
We try to get you the lowest price, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. But reserving well ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Be sure to check the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my car rental in Charleston?
Be sure to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's the minimum age to rent a car in Charleston?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Charleston is 21. Take time to go over Alamo's policy, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category vehicles especially.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Charleston?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Charleston. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or a sedan will have more room for everyone's belongings and provide a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Charleston getaway can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in the United States. Although many of the major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also book 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 reserve your rental car. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip to Charleston. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Alamo?
We advise a full tank policy. You should get into your automobile with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a filling station before you bring the car back to Alamo.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Charleston's small-town atmosphere definitely is charming, but you may want to hit the road again after you've gone out in Charleston's downtown or spent an evening out in Charleston's downtown.
Does Charleston Alamo offer one-way car rentals?
Alamo offers one-way rentals in most cases. 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 choose one-way.
