Alamo Rent A Car is one of the popular car hire companies available at the airport of Cagliari. Their rental counters can be found just outside the airport terminal, in a new building next to the multistory car park. Alamo offers a wide range of vehicles for hire, excellent customer service, and affordable rental rates. Cagliari is situated on the island of Sardinia, only 7 km away from the Italian city of Cagliari. More than three million passengers pass through this airport each year. It is also commonly referred to as Cagliari Elmas Airport, as it is located in the area of Elmas. Other car hire companies at the airport include Hertz, Avis, Sixt, National, Easycar, Budget, Thrifty and Europcar.
Alamo, at Cagliari Airport, is open every day of the week between the hours of 08:30 and 22:00. Although customers can hire a vehicle from their rental counters at the airport, many people like to book their ideal selection in advance of their flight to Cagliari, and this can be done online, from Alamo’s website at www.alamo.com. Their website offers plenty of information about their rental procedures and policies, rental specials and vehicles available at this airport location. There are also pictures available of example vehicles in each of the car categories, along with their seating and luggage capacities. These can be used as a general guideline when selecting the correct sized car for your travel requirements. All Alamo vehicles are priced, booked and controlled by vehicle category, therefore customers will select a category when renting a vehicle, rather than a car by its specific make and model.
Smaller vehicles can be hired from the categories of Economy and Compact. These vehicles generally seat two adults and two children, and store one large luggage item and one smaller luggage item. They are an excellent choice for city driving, as they are easy to handle and easy to park, and ideal for a single driver, couple or small family. Example cars in the Economy category include the Fiat Panda Dynamic 1.2 and Ford Fiesta Titanium 1.2, while the Alfa 147 JTD M-Jet Progression 1.6 is available in the Compact category. There are also Compact Wagon vehicles for hire, and these include the Fiat Stilo SW Active 1.9 JTD 120v. This category offers vehicles which have a bit more space for luggage. Wagon or estate type vehicles are a great option if you have a heavy luggage load. Alamo has estate vehicles in the Fullsize Wagon category as well, such as the Mercedes C220 CDI Elegance SW 2.2, which stores up to four large suitcases and two smaller luggage pieces.
Larger vehicles which may be ideal for the average sized family or business renter can be hired from the Midsize, Midsize Specialty or Fullsize categories. They seat up to five people, and have room for some luggage. These vehicles have relatively spacious interiors, and offer a pleasant and comfortable driving experience. The VW Nuova Passat Comfortline 1.9 is available in the Midsize category, the Mercedes B 200 CDI 2.0 is an example in the Midsize Specialty category, and the Mercedes C220 CDI Elegance 2.2 is a Fullsize vehicle.
Alamo, at Cagliari Airport, aims to provide vehicles which will suit any customer’s requirements, even more elegant and luxurious cars. For prestigious business events and presentation purposes, Alamo offers the Premium category, featuring the Mercedes E280 CDI Avangarde 2.8 as an example. Groups of travelers can hire the Fiat Ulyesses Dynamic 2.0 from the Minivan category, which is a vehicle able to accommodate up to seven people, or the Fiat Ducato Panorama 2.8, seating up to nine passengers. These are both great vehicles for long distance traveling, and have plenty of space within their interiors.
