Rome Fiumicino Airport has a few terminal buildings, Terminal A, B and C, and within the International and Domestic Arrival halls there is a good selection of quality car hire companies available. Alamo is one of the popular choices of rental companies at Fiumicino Airport, as they offer a wide range of vehicles, competitive prices and many special offers. This airport is located 32 km from Rome, and is Italy’s largest international airport, handling over 35 million passengers per year.
Primary renters at Alamo, Fiumicino Airport, are required to be at least 21 years of age. All registered drivers on the rental agreement should have a valid drivers license, and this may also need to be accompanied by an International Driving Permit if the customer is of a foreign nationality. Younger drivers under the age of 25 may need to pay a higher rental rate, in the form of a ‘Young Drivers Surcharge’, which is a daily rate per underage driver, up until a maximum of ten days. ‘Underage’ drivers may also be restricted from renting certain larger or specialty type vehicles. Payment for car hire at Alamo must be made with one of the accepted major credit cards, and these include American Express, Diners Club, Eurocard, Mastercard and Visa. The credit card should also be in the name of the primary renter. Debit or pre-paid cards are generally not accepted as forms of payment.
Alamo’s vehicles are divided into various car categories, and customers will select one of these categories when renting a vehicle rather than a car by its specific make and model. All vehicles are priced, booked and controlled by car category. Customers can view example vehicles for hire on Alamo’s website, at www.alamo.com. Their website also indicates the general seating and luggage capacities for the vehicles in each car category, and these can be used as a guideline for the size of vehicle that will suit your needs. Plenty of extra information is available online as well, including examples of a standard rental agreement, so that customers can familiarize themselves with the details before arriving at the rental counters.
Eleven different car categories are available from Alamo, at Fiumicino Airport, ranging from smaller and fuel efficient vehicles in the Economy category to larger and more spacious vehicles in the Minivan and Van categories. These smaller vehicles are ideal for two adults and two children, and example cars in the Economy category include the Fiat Panda Dynamic 1.2 and Ford Fiesta Titanium 1.2. They are excellent cars for city driving, easy to manage and easy to park, but don’t however have much room for luggage, therefore a larger vehicle may be required for longer journeys. Alamo’s Compact vehicles are of a similar size to those in the Economy class, although the Fiat Stilo SW Active 1.9 JTD 120cv, which is a vehicle in the Compact Wagon category, has more space for luggage.
The categories of Midsize, Midsize Specialty and Fullsize feature slightly larger sized vehicles that are able to accommodate up to five adults. They generally have reasonably spacious interiors, and are good cars for longer road trips. The VW Nuova Passat Comfortline 1.9 is an example vehicle in the Midsize category, the Mercedes B 200 CDI 2.0 is found in the Midsize Specialty class, while the Fullsize category features the Mercedes C220 CDI Elegance 2.2. Estate vehicles are also available from Alamo, including the Fiat Croma Dynamic MJT 1.9 and Mercedes C220 CDI Elegance SW 2.2.
