What you need to know for the road
How do I get a Friedrichshafen Alamo rental car at a great rate?
We strive to get you the best rates, whether you book. However, reserving your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and go over the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my car rental in Friedrichshafen?
You'll need to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What is the minimum age to rent a car in Friedrichshafen?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Friedrichshafen is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Alamo's policies to know if there is an additional cost before you book.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Friedrichshafen?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Friedrichshafen. Economy or compact automobiles are ideal for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a mid-size or SUV is going to have more room for everyone's suitcases and provide a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their Friedrichshafen getaway can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Germany?
In Germany you do need to have insurance before you rent from Alamo. Many major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) usually provide some coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Friedrichshafen. Additionally, as a U.S. 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 book 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 based on the model and make of the rental.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Alamo?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full tank policy. You should receive your automobile with full tank, and you should bring it back it with a full tank. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a filling station before you bring your car back to Alamo. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Friedrichshafen definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Can I get a one-way rental from Alamo?
Alamo offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your rental car at a different Alamo. However, there may be an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
