Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Swindon Alamo rental car at a great rate?
We try to get you the best price, no matter when you book. However, booking ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my vehicle in Swindon?
Be sure to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Swindon?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Swindon is 21. Make sure to review Alamo's policies, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category vehicles especially.
What kind of Alamo rental car should I get for my trip to Swindon?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Swindon. Compact or economy cars are easier to park and good for short drives. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a mid-size car or SUV will have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a little luxury on their Swindon trip can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United Kingdom?
In the United Kingdom you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Alamo. Many major credit card issuers (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) generally cover your car rental. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Swindon. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Alamo car rental?
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. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the model and make of the rental.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Alamo?
We advise a full to full policy. You should get your 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. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you bring the car back to Alamo. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Swindon certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Swindon Alamo offer one-way car rentals?
Alamo offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your rental car at another location. Don't forget there may be an additional fee when you choose one-way.
