What's Oshawa's minimum age to rent a car?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Oshawa is 21. Take time to check Alamo's policies, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category cars especially.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Oshawa?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Oshawa. Compact or economy vehicles are great for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their Oshawa vacation 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 Canada?
You are required to have insurance before you rent from Alamo in Canada. Many major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) typically provide some coverage. But many of them have limitations, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Be sure to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Oshawa.

Do I have to return my Alamo rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full to full policy. You receive the car 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 find a filling station before you return the car to Alamo. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Oshawa certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Oshawa.

Alamo typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at another location. Be aware there is typically an additional fee when you pick one-way.
