Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Geelong Alamo rental car at a great price?
We try to get you the lowest price, no matter when you book. But booking your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and check the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my car rental in Geelong?
Be sure to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's the minimum age to rent a car in Geelong?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Geelong is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 24. Take time to check Alamo's policies to know what the total cost is for you.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Geelong?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Geelong. Economy or compact cars are great 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 more room for luggage and offer a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Geelong vacation can choose a higher-end model like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Australia?
In Australia you do need to have insurance before you rent. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, 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 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. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip to Geelong. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Alamo?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full tank policy. You should receive your car topped off. However, 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 the car back to Alamo. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Geelong certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road 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 return your vehicle at another location. Don't forget there may be an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
