What you need to know about car rentals
How do I get the best prices on a Richmond Alamo car rental?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best price, whether you reserve your car. However, reserving your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to read the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my vehicle in Richmond?
Make sure to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Richmond's minimum age to rent a car?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Richmond is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to check Alamo's policy to know if there is an additional cost for you.
What kind of Alamo rental car should I get for my trip to Richmond?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Richmond. Compact or economy cars are ideal for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a sedan or SUV will have more room and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a dash of extravagance on their Richmond vacation can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Does the United States require car insurance?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Alamo. Many of the major credit card issuers (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) generally cover your car rental. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Richmond. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Alamo require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Alamo does require a deposit when you book your rental car. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly based on the model and make of the rental.
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, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Alamo. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Richmond has plenty to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to see what else Virginia has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in Richmond.
Can I get a one-way rental from Alamo?
Alamo typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your rental at another Alamo. Be aware there may be an additional fee when you pick one-way.
