If you would like to make a reservation with Alamo in advance, you can visit their website at www.alamo.com. Their website is easy to navigate, and displays all the different types of vehicles available to rent from their location at Catania Airport.
Alamo customers can choose their ideal car from eleven vehicle categories. These categories range from smaller compact cars, such as the Alfa 147JTD M-Jet Progression 1.6, to large Vans that can seat up to nine people, such as the Fiat Ducato Panorama 2.8. The Economy class vehicles can comfortably seat two adults and two children, and one large item of luggage and one smaller piece of luggage. They include vehicles such as the Fiat Panda Dynamic 1.2 and the Ford Fiesta Titanium 1.2. In the Compact category you can also select a Compact Wagon, which is able to seat two adults and three children, such as the Fiat Stilo SW Active 1.9. Larger cars that can accommodate five adults can be rented from the Mid-size, Full-size or Full-size Wagon categories. Examples of these types of vehicles would be the VW Nuova Passat Comfortline 1.9, the Mercedes C220 CDI Elegance 2.2 and the Mercedes C220 CDI Elegance SW 2.2.
A little bit more style and elegance can be enjoyed from vehicles in the Premium category, such as the Mercedes E280 CDI Avangarde 2.8. Minivans that can seat up to seven people include the Fiat Ulyesses Dynamic 2.0.
Alamo focuses their attention on the needs of airport renters. They understand that whether you are collecting or returning your vehicle, you may be in a hurry, and have a tight schedule to meet. Alamo is part of a global strategic alliance with Europcar, and they are also the official rental car hire company of the Disneyland Resorts. On their website you will find email addresses where you can contact Alamo for reservation enquiries, technical issues and correspondence related to billing enquiries.
Alamo, at Catania Airport, offers special attention to their Quicksilver Members. This is a program that any renter can join for free, and it offers many special members-only deals. Members also enjoy a simplified reservation and rental process. It is quick and easy to join the Quicksilver program from Alamo’s website.
Your rental agreement from Alamo is automatically printed in English, however, you can request it to be in other languages, such as French, Spanish, German or Italian. A standard rental agreement can be viewed on Alamo’s website, and it usually contains information such as the Rental Agreement number, car serial number, rental date, time and location, return date, time and city, authorized drivers, additional options or other information, charges for the rental, and the rental signatures. Additional information may include items such as an upgrade of a vehicle, personal protection options or fuel options etc.
Together with your vehicle, you can rent various additional equipment, such as a child safety seat or an infant seat. Additional equipment can be requested at the counter, but to ensure its availability it is best to reserve the item when you make the rental booking. The rental vehicle will always contain a full tank of fuel when it is collected, and Alamo offers two re-fueling options. Customers can pre-pay for a full tank, which is worthwhile if you are in a hurry and do not want to re-fuel the vehicle yourself. No refund is available though for any fuel that is unused. The second option allows you to either re-fuel the vehicle yourself, or have Alamo fill up the gas tank for you on your return. Alamo will only charge you for the fuel that you have used, but it will be at a higher rate than at the regular gas stations. This is an ideal option though if you are a business traveler and would like to have all your expenses (rental car and gas) on one receipt.
Alamo, at Catania Airport, will be happy to assist with any further rental enquiries that you may have. They are open every day of the week between 08:00 and 23:59. Their contact details are below.
