Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best deals on a Sydney Alamo car rental?
We strive to get you the best rates, whether you book. However, getting your car ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Be sure to read the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my rental car in Sydney?
You'll need to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What is the minimum age to rent a car in Sydney?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Sydney is 21. Take time to check Alamo's policy, as there may be additional fees if you are under 24 or for higher category rentals especially.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Sydney?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Sydney. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and good for short drives. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a mid-size car or SUV is going to have more room for luggage and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Sydney vacation can choose the premium category for a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does Australia require car insurance?
In Australia you do need to have insurance before you rent. 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 bigger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Sydney. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Alamo car rental?
Alamo requires a deposit when you reserve your rental. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Sydney. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the model and make of the car.
What is the fuel policy on my Alamo car rental?
We recommend a full tank policy. You receive the car with the needle at "F". However, 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 3X the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. 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?
Sydney certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Sydney.
Does Alamo offer one-way rentals in Sydney?
Alamo usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your rental car at a different Alamo. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you choose one-way.
