How do I get the best deals on a Guimaraes Alamo car rental?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest rates, whether you reserve your vehicle. However, reserving your car ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Make sure to read the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
What should I bring with me when I pick up my vehicle in Guimaraes?
You'll need to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Guimaraes?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Guimaraes is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Alamo's policy to determine if there is an additional cost before you book.
What kind of Alamo rental car should I get for my trip to Guimaraes?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Guimaraes. Economy or compact automobiles are good for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a mid-size or SUV is going to have more room for luggage and offer a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a little luxury on their Guimaraes getaway can choose a higher-end car model like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Does Portugal require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in Portugal. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, offer 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 United States citizen, you can also book 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 reserve your rental car. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip to Guimaraes. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the model and make of the rental.
What is the fuel policy on my Alamo car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we advise 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.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Guimaraes certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Guimaraes Alamo offer one-way car rentals?
Alamo offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your rental at a different location. Be aware there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
