What you need to know about car rentals in Guadalajara
How do I get a Guadalajara Alamo rental car at a great rate?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you book. But booking your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to not add an additional driver and read the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my car rental in Guadalajara?
You'll need to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Guadalajara?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Guadalajara is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Alamo's policies to determine what the total cost is before you book.
What kind of Alamo rental car should I get for my trip to Guadalajara?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Guadalajara. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or a sedan will have more room for luggage and be a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a little luxury on their Guadalajara getaway can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Mexico?
In Mexico you do need to have insurance before you rent. You may also purchase additional insurance through Alamo, if you are concerned your insurance won't cover your rental during your trip. Many of the major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) usually offer coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Guadalajara. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also 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 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 depending on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to return my Alamo rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full to full policy. You pick up your Alamo rental with the needle at "F". However, if you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a gas station before you bring it back to Alamo.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Guadalajara?
Guadalajara definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities in Guadalajara.
Can I get a one-way rental from Alamo?
Alamo usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental car at a different location. Don't forget there may be an additional fee when you choose one-way.
