Alamo FAQ’s

Can I use a debit card at Alamo car rental?

At Alamo car rental airport locations, debit cards are only accepted at the time of rental if accompanied by a ticketed return travel itinerary by air or cruise ship. The name and address shown on the renter’s driver’s license must match their current home address. (Active duty military personnel are exempt from address requirements). At the time of rental, charges will be placed on the debit card which reduce the available funds in the account associated with the card used. The renter is responsible for any overdraft fees incurred.

Money orders and prepaid cards are not acceptable forms of security deposit but may be used to pay any balance due at the end of the rental. Cash is not accepted.
