What kind of Alamo rental car should I get for my trip to Surfers Paradise?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Surfers Paradise. Compact or economy cars are easier to park and great for short commutes. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a sedan or SUV will have more room and offer a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a dash of luxury on their Surfers Paradise trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Australia?
In Australia you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Many major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) usually cover your car rental. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Surfers Paradise. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Alamo require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?

Do I have to return my Alamo rental with a full tank?
We encourage a full to full policy. You should receive your vehicle with the needle at "F". 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.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Surfers Paradise certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Surfers Paradise Alamo offer one-way car rentals?
Alamo offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your rental at a different location. However, there may be an additional charge when you pick one-way.
