Frequently asked questions
How do I get the best deals on a Gauteng Alamo rental car?
We strive to get you the best rates, whether you reserve your car. However, getting your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to go over the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
What should I carry with me when I pick up my rental car in Gauteng?
Make sure to bring your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Gauteng's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Gauteng require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Alamo's policy to determine what the total cost is before you book.
What kind of Alamo rental car should I get for my trip to Gauteng?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Gauteng. Compact or economy vehicles are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a touch of extravagance on their Gauteng trip 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 South Africa?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in South Africa. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Alamo require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Alamo requires a deposit when you book your rental car. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip to Gauteng. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to return my Alamo rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full to full policy. You pick up your Alamo rental topped off. If you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a gas station before you bring it back to Alamo.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Gauteng?
Gauteng 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 Gauteng?
Alamo offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your rental car at another Alamo. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
