Alamo is one of the major car hire companies at Venice Airport. Their rental counters can be found in the arrivals area of the airport’s terminal building, which is on the ground floor. Over eight million passengers pass through Venice Airport every year, and many of these passengers are coming to see the sights of Venice and the surrounding areas, and a rented vehicle is a popular choice for transport. Other car hire companies at the airport include Hertz, Maggiore, Avis, Sixt, Budget, National, Thrifty and Easycar.
Alamo offers a wide selection of quality vehicles at very reasonable rates. All their vehicles are divided into various car categories, and they are priced, booked and controlled by these categories. Alamo has a comprehensive website as well, which displays pictures of all the example vehicles in each category, and plenty of useful information about their rental procedures and policies. Their website address is at www.alamo.com.
There are eleven car categories available at Alamo, Venice Airport, and when renting a vehicle, customers will choose one of these categories rather than a car by its specific make and model. Each category has passenger and seating capacities, and these should be used as a general guideline. The Economy category features vehicles such as the Fiat Panda Dynamic 1.2 and Ford Fiesta Titanium 1.2. This is a popular choice amongst many renters, as these cars are very fuel efficient, and great for city driving. They are small and practical, easy to drive and easy to park. Economy vehicles don’t have much room for luggage though, and therefore, a slightly larger vehicle may be better for long distance traveling. Other smaller vehicles available from Alamo can be hired from the Compact category. These vehicles seat up to two adults and three children. Under the Compact category there are also Compact wagon vehicles, such as the Fiat Stilo SW Active 1.9 JTD 120cv, which have a bit more space for luggage.
Vehicles ideal for five people are available in the categories of Midsize, Midsize Specialty, Fullsize and Fullsize Wagon. These are vehicles offering a relatively spacious interior for passengers and luggage, and create a pleasant and comfortable driving experience. The Midsize category includes vehicles such as the VW Nuova Passat Comfortline 1.9, while the Mercedes C220 CDI Elegance 2.2 is a vehicle in the Fullsize category. Vehicles in these categories generally have space for two large luggage items and two smaller items, but the cars in the Fullsize Wagon category have space for up to four large items of luggage, and these include the Mercedes C220 CDI Elegance SW 2.2.
The Mercedes E280 CDI Avangarde 2.8 is a vehicle in the Premium category. Business travelers may be interested in this category, as these vehicles offer more style and elegance than the ordinary rented vehicle, and are perfect for any prestigious business occasion. They are also ideal for any formal private function. The categories of Minivan and Van offer larger sized vehicles, such as the Fiat Ulyesses Dynamic 2.0, which seats up to seven people, and the Fiat Ducato Panorama 2.8, which can seat up to nine passengers.
