Be sure to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Wilmington's minimum age to rent a car?
Alamo's minimum age to rent a car in Wilmington is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Alamo's policies to determine what the total cost is for you.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Wilmington?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Wilmington. Economy or compact vehicles are ideal for short drives and are easier to park. Commute times in Wilmington are around 25 minutes, so you may find a SUV or mid-size car provides a more comfortable ride. Or if you want to keep your emissions down, then go for a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Wilmington vacation can choose a higher-end category 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 a car. Many major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) generally provide some coverage. But many of them have limitations, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Wilmington. 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?
Alamo does require a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Alamo will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip to Wilmington. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to return my Alamo rental with a full tank?
We recommend a full to full policy. You should get into your car with full tank, and you should bring it back it filled up. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Alamo.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Wilmington?
Wilmington's small-town atmosphere definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Wilmington.
