What you need to know about car rentals
How do I get a Rapid City Alamo car rental at a great price?
We try to get you the best rates, no matter when you reserve your car. However, reserving your car well ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Make sure to go over the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
What do I need have with me when I pick up my vehicle in Rapid City?
You'll need to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Rapid City's minimum age to rent a car?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Rapid City is 21. Take time to read through Alamo's policies, as there may be added fees if you are under 25 or for higher category vehicles especially.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Rapid City?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Rapid City. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and good for short commutes. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or a sedan will have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Rapid City trip can choose a higher-end category like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does the United States require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent from Alamo in the United States. Many of the major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) usually cover your car rental. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Rapid City. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Alamo car rental?
Alamo does require a deposit when you book your rental. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Rapid City. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the model and make of the vehicle.
Do I have to return my Alamo rental with a full tank?
We advise a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank. However, if you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a filling station before you bring it back to Alamo. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Rapid City?
Rapid City's small-town atmosphere certainly is charming, but you may want to take to the road again after you've gone out in Rapid City's downtown or checked off all the activities in Rapid City. If you want to add even more entertainment to your Rapid City vacation, you can check out one of the five theme parks in the region. Embrace your inner child, or take the gang to Flags and Wheels Indoor Racing or Ranch Amusement Park.

Alamo offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your rental at a different location. However, there is typically an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
