What you need to know for the road
How do I get a Kitchener Alamo car rental at a great price?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the lowest price, no matter when you reserve your car. However, reserving your car well ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Make sure to go over the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
What do I need have with me when I get my car in Kitchener?
You will need to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's the minimum age to rent a car in Kitchener?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Kitchener is 21. Make sure to review Alamo's policies, as there may be additional fees if you are under 25 or for higher category rentals especially.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Kitchener?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Kitchener. Economy or compact automobiles are easier to park and great for short commutes. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or a sedan will have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a little luxury on their Kitchener getaway can choose the premium category to get a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Canada?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in Canada. Many major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) usually provide some coverage. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Kitchener. Additionally, as a United States 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 reserve your rental car. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip to Kitchener. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Alamo?
We encourage a full tank 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 keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Alamo. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Kitchener?
Kitchener certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Alamo offer one-way rentals in Kitchener?
Alamo usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your rental car at another Alamo. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
