What you need to know about car rentals
How do I get a Charlottetown Alamo car rental at a great price?
We try to get you the lowest price, whether you reserve your vehicle. However, getting ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to check the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
What do I need have with me when I pick up my vehicle in Charlottetown?
Be sure to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Charlottetown's minimum age to rent a car?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Charlottetown is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Alamo's policy to determine if there is an additional cost for you.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Charlottetown?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Charlottetown. Compact or economy cars are ideal for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a dash of luxury on their Charlottetown vacation can choose a higher-end category like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Canada?
In Canada you do need to have insurance before you rent from Alamo. Many of the major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) generally cover your car rental. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering bigger 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 Charlottetown. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Alamo require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Alamo requires a deposit when you reserve your rental. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip to Charlottetown. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Alamo?
We encourage a full tank policy. You pick up your Alamo rental with full tank, and you should return it with a full tank. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to Alamo. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Charlottetown certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Charlottetown.
Does Charlottetown Alamo offer one-way car rentals?
Alamo usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your rental at a different Alamo. Be aware there may be an additional charge when you pick one-way.
