What you need to know about car rentals
How do I find the best deals on a Cumbria Alamo rental car?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you book. But booking your car ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Be sure to go over 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 vehicle in Cumbria?
You'll need to bring your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What is the minimum age to rent a car in Cumbria?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Cumbria is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Alamo's policy to determine what the total cost is for you.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Cumbria?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Cumbria. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and ideal for short drives. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a mid-size car or SUV is going to have more room and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Cumbria vacation can choose a higher-end vehicle like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United Kingdom?
In the United Kingdom you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Alamo car rental?
Alamo does require a deposit when you book your rental. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip to Cumbria. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the model and make of the vehicle.
Do I have to return my Alamo rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full to full policy. You should get into your car with a full tank. However, if you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Alamo. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Do I need unlimited miles when I rent a car in Cumbria?
Cumbria definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Alamo offer one-way rentals in Cumbria?
Alamo usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at a different Alamo. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
