Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best deals on a Newcastle Alamo car rental?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best rates, whether you book. However, getting your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to read the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
What should I carry with me when I pick up my rental car in Newcastle?
You'll need to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's the minimum age to rent a car in Newcastle?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Newcastle is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 24. Take time to check Alamo's policy to determine what the total cost is for you.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Newcastle?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Newcastle. Compact or economy cars are ideal for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have more room and offer a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their Newcastle trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Australia?
In Australia you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also 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 reserve your car for your trip to Newcastle. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the car.
What is the fuel policy on my Alamo car rental?
We recommend a full to full policy. You should get your automobile with full tank, and you should return it with a full tank of gas. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you bring the car back to Alamo. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Do I need unlimited miles when I rent a car in Newcastle?
Newcastle certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Newcastle.
Does Alamo offer one-way rentals in Newcastle?
Alamo offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at another location. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you choose one-way.
