Do I need to bring anything special when I get my car rental in Madison?
Make sure to bring your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Madison's minimum age to rent a car?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Madison is 21. Make sure to review Alamo's policies, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category rentals in particular.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Madison?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Madison. Economy or compact vehicles are easier to park and good for short drives. Commute times in Madison are around 30 minutes, so you may find a SUV or mid-size car provides a more comfortable ride. Or if you want to keep your emissions down, then choose a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Madison trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Alamo. Many major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) typically provide some coverage. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Madison. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can 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 requires a deposit when you reserve your rental. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip. Please note that the deposit may 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 advise a full tank policy. You should get into your 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 save some money, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Alamo. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Madison has plenty to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to find out what else Wisconsin has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits once you've checked off all the activities in Madison.

Alamo usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your rental car at another location. Don't forget there is typically an additional charge when you choose one-way.
