ALAMO Car Rental Services at Birmingham Airport

Birmingham Airport is located approximately 10 km, or 6.3 miles from the city of Birmingham, and in the Metropolitan Borough of Solihull. The airport is also in the West Midlands region of England, and London is about 185 km from Birmingham Airport, or about a two-hour drive by car. The airport has the official code of BHX and used to be named as Birmingham International Airport, but due to a new marketing campaign, the ‘International’ part has fallen away. There is a good selection of car hire companies at Birmingham Airport, as many arriving passengers find a rented car to be the ideal form of transport. One of these companies is Alamo Rent a Car, which is popular for their low rental rates and excellent customer service. Alamo also offers their customers many other options to ease the rental and reservation processes.

Alamo Birmingham Airport, is open every day of the week between the hours of 06:30 and 22:30, and Alamo’s website is available for online bookings. Reserving your vehicle over the internet, in advance of your arrival at the airport, is the best and most convenient way to secure your ideal rented car. The availability of vehicles may be limited once you arrive at the airport, and especially during the busier high season months of the year. It would be most unpleasant to be stuck with a vehicle that is too small, or one that you can’t really afford.

Alamo Rent a Car began their business in 1974, with a few locations in Florida, but today they have thousands of rental offices all over the world, and have quickly become a respected provider of vacation rentals. Their aim is to continuously provide a fun, low-cost, high-value rental experience to family and leisure travelers. Alamo is also well known for having brought about positive changes in the car rental industry over the years. They pioneered the concept of Unlimited Free Mileage and were also the first company to introduce an Online Check-in system in 2005. Alamo is part of a global strategic alliance with Europcar, and together, these two companies form the largest car rental network in the world.

Customers who belong to Alamo’s Quicksilver program can benefit even more from their rentals with Alamo. This membership is offered to occasional and frequent customers, and is free to join. Some of the benefits that Quicksilver members enjoy are a simplified reservation and rental process, access to counter bypass options with Alamo’s self-service kiosks and members will receive discounts and special members-only deals.

Alamo Birmingham Airport, have a large fleet of vehicles, with cars of all shapes and sizes. The smaller vehicles are often quite popular with single drivers or couples, and for those who will just be driving in the city, however, they can handle longer distances as well. The Chevrolet Matiz 1.0 is an example vehicle in this category, and although a great choice for the advantages just mentioned, it does not have much room for luggage, and families may find it a bit cramped. Some of the Chevrolet’s features include anti-lock brakes, power steering and air bags. Economy vehicles such as the Vauxhall Corsa 1.2 is another smaller vehicle from Alamo, and it features a four cylinder engine, manual transmission and space for two luggage items.

Compact vehicles can get quite fancy, with the Vauxhall Astra 1.6 offering air conditioning, driver and passenger air bags, a tilt steering wheel, central locking, electric front windows and an automatic transmission. It also has folding rear seats which can be a useful aspect. A manual vehicle in the Compact category is the Ford Focus Zetec 1.6. However, passengers who really need an elegant vehicle should consider the Premium category, as these vehicles are generally far more stylish than the more ordinary rented cars. An example is the Mercedes C Class 2.0, which is ideal for any prestigious corporate event. There are also Premium Wagons available, such as the Saab 9-5 Estate 2.0.

Slightly larger vehicles seating up to five people include the Skoda Octavia 1.6, Ford Mondeo 2.0 and Saab 9-5 2.0 found in the categories of Midsize, Standard and Full-size. All Full-size vehicles come with an automatic transmission, power assist steering, air conditioning and ABS brakes. The Ford Mondeo Estate 1.8 is also available as an example vehicle in the Midsize Wagon category. Customers who need even larger vehicles can hire the Vauxhall Zafira 1.8, which seats up to six people, or the VW Sharan 2.0 in the Minivan category, seating up to seven people. These are both manually driven vehicles.
