What you need to know for the road
How do I find the best rates on a Koeln Alamo rental car?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best rates, whether you reserve your car. But booking ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to check 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 Koeln?
You'll need to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's the minimum age to rent a car in Koeln?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Koeln is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Alamo's policies to find out if there is an additional cost before you book.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Koeln?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Koeln. Compact or economy cars are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have more room for everyone's bags and provide a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a touch of extravagance on their Koeln trip 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 Germany?
In Germany you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Although many of the major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, give 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 company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Alamo require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Alamo does require a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Alamo?
We suggest a full tank policy. You should receive your vehicle with the needle at "F". If you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a filling station before you bring your car back to Alamo.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Koeln definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Koeln.
Does Koeln Alamo offer one-way car rentals?
Alamo offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your vehicle at another Alamo. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you pick one-way.
