Briefly about the car rental company Alamo.
Alamo is an American rental organization that specializes in renting cars for foreigners. The main branch of the company is located in the city of Clayton. Along with two other popular vehicle rental firms, Alamo is part of Enterprise.
Now the Alamo has representative offices almost everywhere. The company operates in the USA, Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe and so on. The organization also has an office in Moscow, but does not offer car rental in Russia and other CIS countries.
History of origin
The Alamo company began operating back in 1974 in the state of Florida. It became popular after the introduction of an innovative unlimited mileage option. It was very profitable for customers, so they began to use the services of Alamo.
In 2002, the organization became the official distributor of Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort. In 2005, the company began using an online car delivery system, and a little later, in 2007, for its self-service kiosks, Alamo was awarded the "Extra Mile Award". In the same year, the organization was acquired by the Enterprise holding.
Conditions of car rental abroad
Not everyone will be able to rent a car abroad, and all because there are certain conditions. They may differ in different countries, but not much. List of general rules:
* Minimum age of the client. In Europe, a vehicle can be rented by persons over the age of 21, sometimes cars are provided only to those who have already turned 23. The minimum age in other countries is less than 18 years.
* Experience. At a minimum, a person must drive a car for at least two years. Sometimes an experience of 1 year or more is allowed. A premium class model cannot be obtained if you have less than 3 years of experience.
* Driver's license. National rights are accepted in almost all countries, but sometimes they ask for an IDP.
* Credit card. A credit card for renting an iron horse must be issued in the name of the client. Sometimes debit cards are not accepted.
Useful information for Russian tourists
Travelers should remember the following important tips:
1. It is necessary to rent a car from well-known companies if you want to get guarantees. If you want to save money, take a vehicle from intermediaries.
2. Before renting, fully inspect the selected model from the outside and inside. Mark all the damages in the report.
3. The deposit should be blocked on the credit card.
4. Return the car on time, otherwise you will have to pay extra for the delay.
5. Always check the rental price on the company's national websites.
If you remember all the above rules, it will not be difficult for you to deal with the rest of the issues related to renting vehicles.
Countries where the company's services are offered
Alamo tries to provide its services in all corners of the world. Now the organization offers car rental services in more than 1,000 branches in 42 countries on all continents. You can safely use the company's services in Spain, Italy, Germany, Portugal, France, Greece, Turkey, Bulgaria, USA, Canada and so on.
Alamo car rental stations can be found on the official resource in the locations tab. The search form for pick-up points offers to first select a country from a pop-up list, and then displays all the rental points available in this territory.
The car order form is available starting from the base page of the site. After entering important information (the place of delivery / return of the car, date and age), you will need to choose a transport. For each model, basic information about the number of passengers, the capacity of the luggage compartment, the type of transmission is offered, as well as the rental cost is allocated. After choosing a car, you can immediately order additional functions such as: a child seat, a navigator, roadside assistance and much more. All this costs a mere penny, so customers often make orders.
A little about the fleet
All vehicles in the fleet are freely available. You can choose any car of your class. There are such models as Toyota Camry, Nissan Altima, Ford Fusion and so on. The car keys are inside. You can sit down, get an iron horse and test it in action. The fleet is quite large, so everyone will be able to find something comfortable and inexpensive for themselves.
Alamo is a proven company that is simply created for tourists, so it has practically no serious competitors in the market. If you like to travel, be sure to pay attention to this organization.
