What you need to know before you go
How do I find the best prices on a Darwin Alamo car rental?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best price, whether you book. But booking your car well ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Be sure to not add an additional driver and read the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
What should I have with me when I get my car in Darwin?
Be sure to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Darwin's minimum age to rent a car?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Darwin is 21. Take time to check Alamo's policies, as there may be limitations if you are under 24 or for higher category rentals in particular.
What kind of Alamo rental car should I get for my trip to Darwin?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Darwin. Compact or economy cars are good for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a mid-size or SUV is going to have more room and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a touch of extravagance on their Darwin trip can choose a higher-end car model like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Australia?
You are required to have insurance before you rent from Alamo in Australia. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger 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 through 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 car for your trip to Darwin. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Alamo?
We recommend a full to full policy. You pick up your Alamo rental 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 to top it back off. To avoid any added expenses, 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 Darwin?
Darwin definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Darwin Alamo offer one-way car rentals?
Alamo offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at a different Alamo. Don't forget there is typically an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
