What you need to know for the road
How do I find the best rates on an Ermelo Alamo rental car?
We strive to get you the best price, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. However, reserving ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and check the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my car rental in Ermelo?
Be sure to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Ermelo's minimum age to rent a car?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Ermelo is 21. Make sure to check Alamo's policy, as there could be added fees if you are under 25 or for higher category cars especially.
What kind of Alamo rental car should I get for my trip to Ermelo?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Ermelo. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and great for short drives. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a sedan or SUV is going to have more room for everyone's suitcases and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Ermelo getaway can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in South Africa?
In South Africa you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Alamo. Although many of the major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage through 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 car for your trip. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to return my Alamo rental with a full tank?
We encourage a full tank policy. You should get your car with the needle at "F". However, if you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Alamo. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Ermelo certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Ermelo.
Does Ermelo Alamo offer one-way car rentals?
Alamo typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at another location. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
