Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Melbourne Alamo rental car at a great price?
We try to get you the best rates, no matter when you book. But reserving your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to read the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
What do I need to bring when I get my vehicle in Melbourne?
You will need to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Melbourne's minimum age to rent a car?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Melbourne is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 24. Make sure to review Alamo's policies to know what the total cost is for you.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Melbourne?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Melbourne. Economy or compact cars are ideal for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a mid-size or SUV will have more room and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a dash of luxury on their Melbourne trip can choose the premium category for a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Australia?
You are required to have insurance before you rent from Alamo in Australia. Although many of the major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. 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 book your rental car. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip to Melbourne. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Alamo?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full to full policy. You should receive your car with full tank, and you should return it topped off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to Alamo.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Melbourne?
Melbourne definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities in Melbourne.
Does Melbourne Alamo offer one-way car rentals?
Alamo offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your rental car at another location. However, there is typically an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
