What do I need have with me when I pick up my rental car in Columbus?
Make sure to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What is the minimum age to rent a car in Columbus?

What kind of Alamo rental car should I get for my trip to Columbus?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Columbus. Economy or compact vehicles are ideal for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have more room and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Columbus trip can choose a higher-end category like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 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. Many major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) usually provide some coverage. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Be sure to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Columbus.

What is the fuel policy on my Alamo car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with the needle at "F". If you return the 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. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Alamo.

Columbus has lots to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to see what else Georgia has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits once you've checked off all the activities in Columbus.
