ALAMO Car Rental Services at Melbourne Airport

Melbourne Airport handles just over 32 million passengers per year, and is therefore Australia’s second largest airport. The largest is Sydney Airport, with over 35 million passengers per annum. Melbourne Airport is also known as the Tullamarine Airport, as it is located nearby the suburb known by this name, and approximately 23 km from the center of the city. It is a fairly new airport, as it was opened in 1970 in order to replace the Essendon Airport, but is still the only international airport out of four that serve the Melbourne region. Several car hire companies are at Melbourne Airport, such as Alamo Rent A Car. Alamo is found with the terminal buildings of the airport.

Alamo, at Melbourne Airport, is open from 06:00 to 23:59, and customers are able to arrange their rented cars directly from the rental counters at the airport. Customers may also use Alamo’s website for their vehicle reservations, and to view all the car categories offered by Alamo at this rental location. Online, there are details regarding the rental terms and conditions which need to be followed as well. Melbourne Airport consists of four terminal buildings, which are mainly used for domestic flights. Terminal 2 is the only one used for international arrivals and departures. From the airport, the quickest route into Melbourne is the CityLink, or Tullamarine Freeway.

However, before driving off in your rented car from Alamo, it is best to ensure that you are comfortable with the workings of the vehicle, and that you have the emergency numbers to dial should you be involved in an accident or if the vehicle has a breakdown. It is also recommended to find out which type of fuel your rented car should use, as it could be diesel or petrol. If the wrong type of fuel is used, you may be liable for the costs of having the engine cleaned. At Alamo, the rented car will begin the rental period with a full tank of fuel, and depending on the length of your rental, you may need to pay upfront for a full tank, and return the vehicle as empty as possible, as no refunds are given for unused fuel. For shorter rentals, a customers may not pay upfront, but simply return the vehicle with a full tank once the contract has expired.

Vehicles from Alamo are considered to be very reliable and mechanically sound, and are regularly checked for safety. A list of all existing damages will be filled out before you leave with the vehicle, and customers should also check the car to make sure all details have been recorded. This is to ensure that you are not held liable for any damages you did not cause. A valid drivers license must be shown by the primary renter and all additional drivers listed on the rental contract, and a major credit card in the name of the primary renter is required for payment of the vehicle. However, Alamo, at Melbourne Airport, may also accept debit cards. Most local licenses that are printed in English are accepted, but in some cases, an International Driving License may be required.

The minimum age to rent a vehicle from Alamo in Australia is 21, but certain vehicle categories may require the renter to be 25 years of age or older. Younger renter between the ages of 21 and 25 may pay a higher rental rate, due to young drivers insurance, which is a rate applicable to each day of rental, and each underage driver on the rental agreement. Vehicles which have a higher minimum age requirement are usually larger, or of a special type, such as convertibles. Disabled passengers arriving at Melbourne Airport will find the terminal buildings to be accessible, and that Alamo may offer hand controls for their assistance. At Melbourne Airport, hand controls should be reserved in advance, as they are only available on certain automatic vehicles. A person who is unable to drive a vehicle due to disability may also still be the primary renter, and pay for the car hire, but will make use of a designated driver with a valid drivers license.

A convenient option for customers who will not be returning to Melbourne Airport is a one way hire, as this allows the customer to deliver the car to another Alamo rental location. The return location can be in Melbourne or even in another town or city nearby. Customers should just keep in mind that one way hires, and all rented cars, may not be permitted to be driven to Western Australia, into the Northern Territory or to be taken on the ferry to any island nearby. All details regarding a one way hire should be confirmed with Alamo as early as possible.

Alamo’s has a large fleet of vehicles, which range from smaller models such as the Hyundai Getz to larger vans, ideal for groups of travelers or for families who require plenty of interior space in their vehicle. Larger vehicles are similar to the Kia Carnival 2.4 seating eight passengers, or even the Toyota Commuter, with room for up to twelve people. Smaller cars are generally more cost effective, and are easy to drive. The Hyundai Getz may also come with an automatic transmission. Mid-size vehicles include the Skoda Octavia, Toyota Camry and Toyota Kluger 3.5, while business clients in need of a more luxurious vehicle can hire the Audi A4 or Audi A6.

Customers can contact Alamo, at Melbourne Airport, for all further details regarding car hire services.
