Alamo Ottawa Macdonald Cartier International Airport
Ottawa International Airport is found in the Ontario region of Canada, to the northeast of Toronto and to the west of Montreal. It is found in the Riverside South area, and nearby to Ficko, Leitrim and Blossom Park. The airport is about 10.2km south from downtown Ottawa. Many also refer to Ottawa Airport as the Macdonald-Cartier International Airport, and distinguish it from similar establishments by its airport code of YOW. Facilities of the airport include car rental companies, such as Alamo Ottawa International Airport. Alamo is very popular amongst leisure travellers, and has a wide range of vehicles for hire. Their car hire rates are reasonable as well.
Alamo has over thirty years of experience in the car hire industry, and have mainly focused their attention on providing high-quality vehicles to persons travelling for leisure purposes. Alamo has implemented many programs which have encouraged holiday car rentals, and also simplified the process by introducing a customised rental contract the size of an airline ticket. Instant Alamo is a program developed by the company to store a traveller’s individual rental information for instant reference, and Alamo was the first company to introduce real-time booking capabilities on the internet in 1995. In 2005, Alamo was also the only company with an online check-in system. With these services and many more, Alamo has proved to be one of the best choices for leisure car rentals.
Alamo, at Ottawa International Airport, has rental counters in the Parkade building across the street from the passenger terminal, and is within easy reach of the arrival areas. Passengers will arrive on the ground floor level of the airport building, and will collect their luggage from the baggage reclaim carousels. The carousels for domestic flights are found in the public area, but the carousels with baggage from international flights are found in the Canada Customs Hall. Passengers of the airport will find Alamo open every day of the week, at most hours of arrival flights. On weekdays Alamo is open from 06:30 to 23:59, and on Saturdays and Sundays they are available from 07:00 to 23:59. Vehicles may be hired directly over the rental counters, but an advanced reservation is highly recommended. Online reservations often provide cheaper rental rates.
Customers who are fond of Alamo’s services can become Quicksilver members, and enjoy a range of benefits each time they hire a vehicle from any one of Alamo’s thousands of rental locations. The Quicksilver membership is free of charge, available to frequent and occasional renters, and generally enables a more simplified reservation and rental process. There are Alamo self-service kiosks for customers who prefer to skip the rental counters, and special members-only deals that will help customers to save money.
The Ottawa International Airport car hire companies generally require their primary renters to be at least 21 years of age, and to have a safe driving record. A major payment card should also be presented at the time of vehicle collection. The cards generally accepted include American Express, Mastercard, Visa and Diner’s Club, but others may be fine to use as well. Debit cards are not really seen as a method of payment, but could be accepted at the end of the rental period. Although younger drivers (persons under the age of 25) may hire a vehicle, they may not be permitted to hire from all categories, and will pay higher rental rates for young drivers insurance. This is common practice at the majority of airport car rental locations around the world.
Vehicles hired may also be arranged as Alamo one way hires, should the customer be going ‘one way’ from Ottawa International Airport. One way hire services may need to be reserved in advance, and may be more expensive than an ordinary hire, however, their price will depend on the length of the rental and the return location selected for the vehicle. Cars hired may be driven to all locations in Canada, including to the nearby cities of Montreal, Kingston and Toronto. The roads in Canada are generally easy to follow, and in good condition. The city roads are well organised as well, and parking areas are frequently provided. If you are heading for the United States, make sure that your hire car is permitted to leave the country of Canada, and that adequate cross-border rental arrangements have been made.
The majority of Ottawa International Airport car rental companies hire additional items of equipment for their vehicles, such as baby seats, booster seats and satellite navigation systems. These items should be requested, as they are not automatically included in your rental. They are also best reserved in advance, as there is no guarantee that they will be available upon your arrival at the airport. Alamo hand controls for disabled drivers is another item that can be requested in advance, and is useful for persons with a lower limb disability. From the rental location of Ottawa Airport, hand controls are free of charge.
Alamo’s vehicles are arranged into various car groups, for example, Economy, Compact, Midsize, Fullsize, Minivan and SUV. The larger Minivans and SUVs could be similar to the Dodge Grand Caravan, Ford Escape, Ford Explorer, Ford Edge, Chevrolet Tahoe and Chevrolet Suburban, and are generally more expensive to hire than smaller cars similar to the Suzuki Swift, Nissan Versa ad Dodge Caliber. The Chevrolet Impala is an example of a Fullsize car, while the Buick Allure and Chrysler 300C can be hired for more prestigious occasions.
