You'll need to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Rochester?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Rochester is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to review Alamo's policy to know what the total cost is before you book.
What kind of Alamo rental car should I get for my trip to Rochester?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Rochester. Compact or economy cars are good for short commutes and are easier to park. Commute times in Rochester are around 28 minutes, so you may find a SUV or mid-size car provides a more comfortable ride. Or if you want to keep your emissions down, then go for a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Rochester vacation can choose the premium category for a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United States?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Alamo require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Alamo requires a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip to Rochester. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the model and make of the rental.
What is the fuel policy on my Alamo car rental?
We advise a full to full policy. You receive the car topped off. However, if you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank 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?
Rochester has enough to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to see what else New York has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits once you've checked out the capital of New York or explored New York's capital. If you are wishing to add a dash excitement to your Rochester trip, you can also go to Seabreeze Amusement Park and enjoy an evening riding the park's attractions.
Does Alamo offer one-way rentals in Rochester?
Alamo usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your vehicle at a different Alamo. However, there may be an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
