Choose your ride at rental locations across the USA and Canada
There are more important things in the world than the colour or model of a rental car, but it’s always nice to have a vehicle that suits your particular tastes. Alamo and National car rental know that having a choice in your car can make your holiday just that little bit better, and have developed a new way to pick up that will allow you to hit the road in style.
Choice Locations are available at Alamo and National car rental depots in many cities and airports across the United States
. They are simple to use - just head to the desk upon arrival, show them your rental confirmation and process your paperwork as normal. Once that has been done, you will be directed to the parking lot for the supplier with which you booked, and can there peruse the parked vehicles which will be arranged in clearly marked categories. Find one in your booking category which suits you, and get in. The keys will be in the door. Drive to the exit, where a staff member can check your rental documents, hand you any additional items like a pre-booked GPS, and you will be free to hit the road in your hand-picked ride.
Window-shopping can be dangerous! If you see a vehicle in a higher category that takes your fancy, you are free to get in and bring it to the gate, where the staff member will inform you of the upgrade fee.
These locations represent a concept in car rental that is hugely beneficial to customers. A category like “Full Size” or “Economy” can be a little vague, so it is very helpful to be able to choose the specific vehicle you want. Some people value legroom over luggage space, some prefer specific makes and models and others prioritise certain colours for safety or personality. With Alamo and National’s Choice Locations, the power is yours!
So if the idea of trying Choice Locations fancies you, here are some suggestions of places to go. You could choose to go on a Rockies road trip from Calgary
, explore the sunny coast of California from San Francisco
or Los Angeles
, or just visit whatever North American destination pleases you.
