Alamo is the most popular supplier for USA Car Hire with our customers.
Their Free choice of vehicles and consistent, efficient customer service are the main reasons for this. Alamo Car Hire is also the largest supplier of our very popular USA Young Driver’s Package. Through parent company Enterprise Holdings Group, Alamo has access to the largest car hire fleet. Enterprise also owns the self-named car hire company and National Car Hire.
Alamo was founded in 1974 with just 4 locations in Florida. It quickly grew to become the largest supplier in the USA of car rentals to international travellers with nearly 6000 locations, including over 400 airport locations. In 2005 Alamo launched Online Check-in and now has more than 170 self-service kiosks at over 60 locations.
The Alamo USA Car Hire fleet mainly comprises vehicles manufactured by General Motors such as the Chevrolet brand. Toyota, Nissan and Ford also feature. According to Detroit News, Enterprise Holdings buys over 7% of all cars sold in the United States!! View the current fleet for Alamo.
Alamo USA Car Hire at Disney Parks
Alamo formed a “partnership” with the Walt Disney Company in 2004 to supply hire cars for the two theme parks. Disneyland in California and Disney World in Florida. Disney Care Care centre is close to the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World. If you are staying in a Disney Resort property, or at Lake Buena Vista, Hotel Plaza Boulevard or Palm Parkway resort hotels you can arrange collection by the shuttle to get to the Car Care Center. The shuttle also collects from Caribe Royale Hotel, Buena Vista Suites and Holiday Inn Family Suites. Other Disney Florida car hire locations can be found here.
Alamo Car Hire at Disneyland is located on West Katella Avenue, with another location nearby at Paradise Pier Hotel.
Choice of Hire Cars
We have already mentioned that in many locations you choose your car from a selection. There is a reduced choice – if any – at small, hotel locations. The Disney Car Care Centre in Walt Disney World has the largest selection of cars in Orlando outside of the International Airport. If you would like a choice of vehicles and longer opening hours than hotels, we recommend using this location.
An interesting bit of historical trivia, the name Alamo car hire was chosen so that they would be the very first in the phone book!
