Renting a car with Alamo?


Here’s a quick introduction to Alamo

Alamo Rent a Car is an American car rental company based in Missouri, USA, owned and operated by Enterprise Holdings, which includes Enterprise Rent a Car and National Car Rental. As a whole, the group is the largest car rental provider in the world by fleet size and locations. As a standalone brand, Alamo is the third largest car hire company in the US, and according to the company, it’s the number one car hire provider for international travellers arriving at US airports such as LAX (Los Angeles) California, JFK (New York), and Miami (MIA) in South East Florida

With locations in 100 countries on five continents, Alamo has a significant profile in Europe, South America, the Middle East, and Australia, but does not have a strong presence in the Asian market, with only a handful of branches in Guam and Saipan. Its niche is international leisure travel on a budget, and the brand is known for offering a no-hassle rental experience, particularly its drop-off procedures. The company also claims to be the first car rental provider to offer unlimited miles.

Alamo’s fleet is drawn from the over 2 million vehicles in the Enterprise network, so their selection is among the most comprehensive in the industry. Vehicles range from minicars and compact sedans, luxury elite sports cars and full-size SUVs, to 7-9 seater minivans. All the big names in automobiles are found at Alamo branches worldwide, including Jaguar, Ford, BMW, Audi, Hyundai, Volkswagen, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Chrysler and Nissan.
