Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best rates on an Erie Alamo car rental?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best rates, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. But reserving ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Be sure to check the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my car rental in Erie?
You will need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What is the minimum age to rent a car in Erie?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Erie is 21. Take time to read through Alamo's policies, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category cars especially.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Erie?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Erie. Compact or economy cars are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a sedan or SUV is going to have more room and provide a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a dash of luxury on their Erie trip can choose a higher-end car model like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Many of the major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) generally offer coverage. But many of them have limitations, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Erie. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through 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 reserve your rental. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Erie. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the model and make of the rental.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Alamo?
We advise a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with full tank, and you should bring it back it topped off. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Alamo. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Erie has lots to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to see what else Pennsylvania has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits once you've checked off all the activities in Erie. If you are wanting to add some fun to your Erie trip, you can also drive to Waldameer Park & Water World and spend a night taking on the park's attractions.
Does Erie Alamo offer one-way car rentals?
Alamo usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your rental car at a different Alamo. Don't forget there is typically an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
