What you need to know about car rentals in Elm City
How do I get an Elm City Alamo car rental at a great price?
We try to get you the lowest price, no matter when you book. However, reserving ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to not add an additional driver and go over the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
What should I bring with me when I pick up my rental car in Elm City?
You'll need to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Elm City's minimum age to rent a car?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Elm City is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to check Alamo's policies to know if there is an additional cost for you.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Elm City?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Elm City. Compact or economy automobiles are great for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have more room and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Elm City vacation can choose the premium category for a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Does the United States require car insurance?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, 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 book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Alamo car rental?
Alamo requires a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip to Elm City. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the make and model of the car.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Alamo?
We suggest a full tank policy. You should get into your automobile with the needle at "F". But, if you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a filling station before you bring it back to Alamo. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Elm City's small-town atmosphere definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Elm City.
Can I get a one-way rental from Alamo?
Alamo usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your vehicle at another Alamo. Be aware there may be an additional fee when you choose one-way.
