Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best deals on an Essen Alamo car rental?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best rates, whether you reserve your vehicle. However, getting your car well ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Be sure to go over 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 Essen?
You'll need to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Essen?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Essen is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Alamo's policy to determine what the total cost is for you.
What kind of Alamo rental car should I get for my trip to Essen?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Essen. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a sedan or SUV will have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Essen getaway can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Germany?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in Germany. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a United States 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 does require a deposit when you book your rental. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip to Essen. Please be aware 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 to full policy. You receive the car 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 fill up your tank before you return the car to Alamo.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Essen?
Essen definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Alamo offer one-way rentals in Essen?
Alamo offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your rental at another Alamo. However, there is typically an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
