You will need to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What is the minimum age to rent a car in Tucson?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Tucson is 21. Make sure to review Alamo's policy, as there may be added fees if you are under 25 or for higher category rentals especially.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Tucson?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Tucson. Compact or economy cars are easier to park and good for short commutes. Commute times in Tucson are close to 27 minutes, so you may find a SUV or mid-size car more comfortable. Or if you want to keep your emissions down, then go for a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Tucson vacation can choose a higher-end model like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in the United States. Many of the major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) usually cover your car rental. But many of them have limitations, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs.

Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Alamo?
We suggest a full tank policy. You receive the 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 find a gas station before you return the car to Alamo. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Tucson has over half a million people, so there should be plenty to do. Unlimited miles allow you to see what else Arizona has to offer without being concerned about your limits.
