Perugia Airport is a small Italian gateway leading to the Umbria region. The airport is located approximately 12 km to the east of Perugia, the capital city of Umbria, and is also within reasonable driving distance of more prominent Italian cities, such as Rome, Florence and Pisa. A second name for Perugia Airport is San Egidio Airport, and its official airport code is listed as PEG. This small Italian airport has an excellent reputation, as passengers report it to be very efficient, and the staff members to be friendly and helpful. There are a few amenities to found at Perugia Airport, which include a selection of car hire companies, for example, Alamo. Alamo Rent a Car is very popular for their low rental prices and wide range of vehicles for hire.
The car rental company of Alamo was founded in 1979, and they therefore have a good few years of experience in the industry. During their past years of service they have made some huge contributions to the car hire industry. Alamo is known for pioneering the concept of Unlimited Free Mileage, and was also the first car hire company to arrange real-time booking capabilities over the Internet. This took place in the year 1995, and enabled customers to find rental locations, view car hire rates, and select their choice of vehicle, all from the comfort of their homes. Alamo is very popular in the leisure car rental sector of the industry, offering a fun, low-cost, high-value rental experience to families and tourists. They have many rental locations all over the world, and also form part of a global strategic alliance with Europcar, and together these two companies create the world’s largest car rental network. Alamo is also in close association with National Car Hire.
Today, advanced bookings from Alamo’s website are a very popular way to organize travel arrangements, and their website address is www.alamo.com. Although customers can hire a vehicle directly from Alamo’s rental counters at Perugia Airport, it is far more convenient to simply go online, and it also provides peace of mind knowing that your ideal hired car will be ready and waiting for your arrival at the airport. It is also recommended to hire any extra item of equipment needed for your journey, at the time of booking your vehicle. These items may include a child car seat or satellite navigation system, and can be hired on a ‘first come, first serve’ basis.
Although there are many good reasons to select Alamo Perugia Airport as your car hire company, even greater time and money saving benefits can be enjoyed when joining Alamo’s Quicksilver program. This program is ideal for all kinds of renters, occasional and frequent, and is a free membership. Quicksilver members, amongst other benefits, enjoy a simplified reservation and rental process, are able to bypass the rental counters at certain Alamo locations, save with the Quicksilver membership discounts and receive special members-only deals. Enrolment forms and further details about the Quicksilver program is available on Alamo’s website.
One of the most important things about a hired car is its size. A car too small will cause an uncomfortable journey that will not be pleasant for anyone, while an overly large vehicle could be unnecessarily expensive in terms of fuel. On Alamo’s website, it is easy to choose the right size of vehicle, as there are pictures of example vehicles in each car category, and details of their passenger and luggage capacities, as well as any additional features they may have. Although you may not receive the exact vehicle that is shown as an example, you will be provided with a vehicle of very similar size. The Economy category at Alamo is popular for smaller vehicles such as the Fiat Panda Dynamic 1.2 and the Ford Fiesta Titanium 1.2, while Compact vehicles are also considered to be very safe and comfortable to drive.
Families who need slightly larger cars can hire from the categories of Midsize, Midsize Specialty and Fullsize, containing vehicles such as the VW Nuovo Passat Comfortline 1.9, Mercedes B 200 CDI 2.0 and Mercedes C220 CDI Elegance 2.2. All these vehicles can seat up to five people, and have reasonable space for luggage as well. There are also station wagons available with larger luggage capacities, such as the Mercedes C220 CDI Elegance SW 2.2. In some cases customers need extra large vehicles, and these are available from Alamo’s Minivan and Van categories. Example vehicles include the Fiat Ulyesses Dynamic 2.0, seating seven passengers, and the Fiat Ducato Panorama 2.8, seating up to nine passengers. More elegant vehicles ideal for business presentations can be hired from the Premium category.
The minimum age restriction at Alamo Perugia Airport is just 21 years, however, younger drivers between the ages of 21 and 25 will pay a higher rental rate than usual, in the form of a ‘young driver fee’. This is applicable at most major car hire companies, but is not that much extra per day of rental. Additional drivers may be registered on the rental contract, and should also meet the same requirements as the primary renter.
Customers can contact Alamo, at Perugia Airport, for further details. There is also plenty of information about Alamo’s rental terms and conditions on their website.
