What you need to know about car rentals
How do I find the best prices on a Hermanus Alamo rental car?
We try to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you reserve your car. But getting your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my rental car in Hermanus?
You'll need to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Hermanus's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Hermanus set the minimum age to rent a car at 21. Take time to check Alamo's policies, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category cars especially.
What kind of Alamo rental car should I get for my trip to Hermanus?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Hermanus. Compact or economy cars are easier to park and good for short commutes. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a mid-size or SUV will have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their Hermanus vacation can choose the premium category for a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in South Africa?
In South Africa you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Alamo. Many of the major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) usually provide some coverage. But many of them have limitations, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Hermanus. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with 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. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the vehicle.
What is the fuel policy on my Alamo car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full to full policy. You should get into your car topped off. If you return the rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. 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?
Hermanus certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Hermanus Alamo offer one-way car rentals?
Alamo usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your rental car at a different location. Don't forget there may be an additional fee when you pick one-way.
