What you need to know about car rentals
How do I get a Hamilton Alamo car rental at a great rate?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best price, no matter when you book. But getting ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to check the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my car in Hamilton?
You will need to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What is the minimum age to rent a car in Hamilton?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Hamilton is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional 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 Hamilton?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Hamilton. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and great for short drives. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or a sedan will have more room for luggage and offer a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a little luxury on their Hamilton trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in New Zealand?
In New Zealand you do need to have insurance before you rent from Alamo. Many major credit card issuers (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) generally offer coverage. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Hamilton. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage through 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 reserve your vehicle for your trip to Hamilton. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
What is the fuel policy on my Alamo car rental?
We recommend a full to full policy. You should get into your automobile with the needle at "F". 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 triple the amount of current gas prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a gas station before you bring it back to Alamo.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Hamilton certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Hamilton.
Can I get a one-way rental from Alamo?
Alamo typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at a different location. However, there is typically an additional charge when you pick one-way.
