What you need to know before you go
How do I get the best rates on a Santa Ana Alamo car rental?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best rates, whether you reserve your car. But booking your car well ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Be sure to go over the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my car rental in Santa Ana?
You will need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Santa Ana?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Santa Ana is 21. Make sure to check Alamo's policy, as there could be additional fees if you are under 25 or for higher category rentals in particular.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Santa Ana?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Santa Ana. Economy or compact cars are ideal for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a sedan or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little luxury on their Santa Ana vacation can choose a higher-end car model like a Cadillac or Audi 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 American Express or MasterCard, 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. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase 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. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Santa Ana. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to return my Alamo rental with a full tank?
We suggest a full to full policy. You should get your vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. 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?
Santa Ana has enough to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to see what else California has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits once you've checked off all the activities in Santa Ana.
Can I get a one-way rental from Alamo?
Alamo offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your rental at another location. Be aware there is typically an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
