What's East London's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in East London set the minimum age to rent a car at 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 find out what the total cost is before you book.
What kind of Alamo rental car should I get for my trip to East London?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in East London. Economy or compact vehicles are great for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have more room and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little luxury on their East London trip can choose a higher-end model like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does South Africa require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from Alamo in South Africa. Many major credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) usually offer coverage. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to East London.

What is the fuel policy on my Alamo car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we advise 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 save some money, it is best to find a gas station before you bring your car back to Alamo. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
East London definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities here.

Alamo offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your vehicle at another location. However, there may be an additional fee when you choose one-way.
