Frequently asked questions

We try to get you the best price, no matter when you book. However, booking your car ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
What should I bring with me when I get my car rental in New Orleans?
Make sure to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's the minimum age to rent a car in New Orleans?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in New Orleans is 21. Take time to review Alamo's policies, as there may be limitations 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 New Orleans?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit New Orleans. Compact or economy vehicles are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have more room and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their New Orleans getaway can choose a higher-end vehicle 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 a car. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered 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 also book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Alamo require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Alamo requires a deposit when you reserve your rental. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip to New Orleans. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to return my Alamo rental with a full tank?
We encourage a full tank policy. You pick up your Alamo rental with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Alamo. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

New Orleans 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 region free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in New Orleans. If you want to add some adventure to your New Orleans trip, you can also head to Carousel Gardens Amusement Park and enjoy an evening riding the park's attractions.
