Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Sacramento Alamo car rental at a great rate?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you book. But booking your car well ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and check the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
What do I need have with me when I pick up my car rental in Sacramento?
Make sure to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Sacramento's minimum age to rent a car?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Sacramento is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to check Alamo's policies to know if there is an additional cost before you book.
What kind of Alamo rental car should I get for my trip to Sacramento?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Sacramento. Compact or economy cars are good for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a dash of extravagance on their Sacramento trip can choose a higher-end vehicle 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 a car from Alamo in the United States. Many major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) usually provide some coverage. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Sacramento. Additionally, as a U.S. 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 does require 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 Sacramento. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the make and model of the car.
What is the fuel policy on my Alamo car rental?
We advise a full tank policy. You pick up your Alamo rental with a full tank. But, if you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to Alamo.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Sacramento?
Sacramento has enough to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to see what else California has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits after you've had an evening out in Sacramento's downtown or gone out downtown. If you want to add even more excitement on your Sacramento trip, you can check out one of the two theme parks in the region. Embrace your inner child, or take the gang to Funderland Park or Scandia Family Fun Center.
Does Sacramento Alamo offer one-way car rentals?
Alamo typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your vehicle at a different location. Be aware there may be an additional charge when you pick one-way.
