Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best deals on a Mackay Alamo car rental?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best rates, whether you reserve your vehicle. But reserving ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to go over the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
What do I need have with me when I get my vehicle in Mackay?
You'll need to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Mackay's minimum age to rent a car?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Mackay is 21. Make sure to review Alamo's policies, as there could be limitations if you are under 24 or for higher category cars especially.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Mackay?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Mackay. Economy or compact vehicles 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 luggage and provide a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a little luxury on their Mackay trip can choose a higher-end model like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Does Australia require car insurance?
In Australia you do need to have insurance before you rent from Alamo. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, offer 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. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can 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. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip to Mackay. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to return my Alamo rental with a full tank?
We suggest a full to full policy. You should get into your vehicle topped off. However, 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 keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Alamo.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Mackay definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Mackay.
Can I get a one-way rental from Alamo?
Alamo offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your vehicle at a different Alamo. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you pick one-way.
