car hire with Alamo

To ensure that everyone has the freedom to explore and enjoy Florida, car hire is included in every holiday package. Or you could choose to add on a coach transfer. Due to their location, however, for some properties car hire is either recommended or essential. Please refer to the logos on individual property descriptions which will advise you whether we view car hire as being essential, recommended or optional.

Conditions of hire

All drivers must be at least 21 years old and have a valid driving license from their country of residence. An international driving permit is not acceptable. Drivers aged between 21-25 years must pay a surcharge of $25 per day. Child seats are a legal requirement in the USA for children under 5 year, these are at a supplement of approx. $7 per day. All surcharges are payable locally when the car is picked up.

The above car models are intended as a guide only and similar models may be substituted.

Parties of over 12 people, including infants, should hire 2 or more vehicles as required.


Passengers/Luggage

The details above give an indication of the capacity of each car type but do not necessarily mean that the equivalent number of passengers and baggage can be carried with comfort. If you are looking for greater passenger comfort or extra luggage room you may wish to hire a larger vehicle or more than one vehicle. Why not make your holiday extra special by choosing a Premium or Convertible car?


Insurance

It is compulsory to have adequate insurance protection to drive hire cars in Florida and as such we have got together with Alamo to offer two packages that you can pre-purchase in the UK. Please see the table below for the protection checklist.


Alamo Fully Inclusive

This includes Collision Damage Waiver, unlimited mileage, $1million liability cover, all taxes and airport charges. Fully Inclusive is included in the basic car hire price.


Alamo Gold Insurance

This includes the same level of cover as Fully Inclusive insurance, PLUS allows an unlimited number of drivers and a full tank of fuel. Gold is available for a small supplement and represents great value – meaning you can share the driving and don't have to worry about finding somewhere to fill up with fuel before returning the car.
