Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best rates on a Cologne Alamo car rental?
We strive to get you the best price, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. However, getting ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to not add an additional driver and read the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
What do I need have with me when I get my car in Cologne?
Be sure to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Cologne?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Cologne is 21. Make sure to review Alamo's policies, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category cars in particular.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Cologne?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Cologne. Compact or economy automobiles are great for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a mid-size vehicle or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their Cologne vacation can choose a higher-end model like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Germany?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in Germany. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, 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 U.S. citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Alamo require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Alamo requires a deposit when you book your rental. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip to Cologne. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Alamo?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full to full 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. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a gas station before you bring it back to Alamo. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Cologne?
Cologne certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Alamo offer one-way rentals in Cologne?
Alamo offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your rental car at a different location. However, there is typically an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
