Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best rates on a Coimbra Alamo car rental?
We strive to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you book. But reserving ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to not add an additional driver and go over the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my rental car in Coimbra?
Make sure to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Coimbra's minimum age to rent a car?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Coimbra is 19. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to review Alamo's policy to find out what the total cost is before you book.
What kind of Alamo rental car should I get for my trip to Coimbra?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Coimbra. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their Coimbra trip can choose a higher-end model like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Portugal?
In Portugal you do need to have insurance before you rent. Many major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) generally cover your car rental. However, many of them have limitations, 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 Coimbra. 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 book your rental car. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip to Coimbra. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the make and model of the car.
Do I have to return my Alamo rental with a full tank?
We suggest a full tank policy. You pick up your Alamo rental with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to Alamo.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Coimbra certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Coimbra.
Can I get a one-way rental from Alamo?
Alamo usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental car at another location. However, there may be an additional charge when you choose one-way.
