Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Raleigh Alamo rental car at a great rate?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best rates, whether you book. But booking ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to not add an additional driver and read the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
What do I need have with me when I get my rental car in Raleigh?
Be sure to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Raleigh's minimum age to rent a car?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Raleigh is 21. Make sure to check Alamo's policy, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category vehicles especially.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Raleigh?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Raleigh. Economy or compact vehicles are ideal for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a sedan or SUV will have more room for luggage and be a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a dash of extravagance on their Raleigh getaway can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Does the United States require car insurance?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent from Alamo. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Alamo require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Alamo does require a deposit when you reserve your rental. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip to Raleigh. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the make and model of the car.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Alamo?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full tank policy. You receive the car with the needle at "F". However, if you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Alamo. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Raleigh?
Raleigh has lots to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to find out what else North Carolina has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in Raleigh. If you are wanting to add some adventure to your Raleigh trip, you can also drive to Adventure Landing and spend a day taking on the park's attractions.
Can I get a one-way rental from Alamo?
Alamo offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at another location. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
