What you need to know about car rentals in Lake Charles
How do I get the best rates on a Lake Charles Alamo car rental?

Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my car rental in Lake Charles?
Make sure to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What is the minimum age to rent a car in Lake Charles?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Lake Charles is 21. Take time to check Alamo's policy, as there may be added fees if you are under 25 or for higher category vehicles in particular.
What kind of Alamo rental car should I get for my trip to Lake Charles?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Lake Charles. Compact or economy vehicles are good for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little luxury on their Lake Charles vacation can choose the premium category to get a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United States?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent. Many of the major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) typically cover your car rental. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Lake Charles. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also book 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 be aware that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the model and make of the rental.
What is the fuel policy on my Alamo car rental?
We advise a full tank policy. You pick up your Alamo rental with a full tank. If you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring the car back to Alamo. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Lake Charles has lots to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to see what else Louisiana has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits once you've gone out downtown or checked off all the activities in Lake Charles.
Does Alamo offer one-way rentals in Lake Charles?
Alamo typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at a different Alamo. Be aware there may be an additional fee when you choose one-way.
