ALAMO Car Rental Services at Johannesburg Airport

O.R Tambo International Airport is located approximately 20 km from the city center of Johannesburg, the capital city of South Africa, and also the largest inland city in the world. The airport is a very important gateway to the Gauteng region of the country, and is the main hub for many airline carriers in Africa. With a capacity to handle 28 million passengers per annum, O.R Tambo Airport is the largest airport on the continent. Although there are transport options from the airport, many passengers prefer to have their own rented car to travel in Johannesburg. Most South Africans drive their own vehicles, as public transport does not sufficiently cover all areas of the city. Alamo at Tambo International Airport, offers their customers a wide range of quality vehicles, and customers are also fond of Alamo for their competitive prices.

Alamo, along with other car rental companies, is located in the multi-storey parkade, just opposite the domestic terminal at the airport. They are also available 24 hours a day for reservations and vehicle collections and returns. Passengers will either arrive in the international area of the airport, or domestic passenger section of the building, depending on from where their flight originated, and can go directly to the car rental facilities once customs and luggage collection procedures have been completed.

Alamo Rent a Car has been offering their services to thousands of happy customers for over thirty years. They started off with just four rental locations in Florida, but have since grown to be a globally recognized car hire brand. Alamo mostly specializes in leisure car rentals, aiming to provide a fun, low-cost, high-value rental experience for all their customers. Over the years Alamo has introduced many new concepts to the car hire industry, which have become extremely popular among their customers. A new customized rental agreement the size of an airline ticket was introduced in 1985, as well as Instant Alamo Rent A Car for the storage of a traveler's rental preferences. Later, in 1995, Alamo was the first car hire company to offer real-time booking capabilities on the Internet. Customers were then able to find rental locations, view rental rates and select vehicles all from the comfort of their homes. Nowadays, all the major car hire companies offer comprehensive websites from where reservations can be made.

Although Alamo is famous for their fun and family orientated service, they have not forgotten about their business clients, and offer an excellent Corporate Program, which is designed to help companies, or individuals manage their business travel needs. Some of the benefits of this program include guaranteed low rates throughout the year, the Express Return service, priority service at the Silver Service counter, unlimited mileage on round-trip rentals, reduced surcharges for underage drivers, flexible billing options and 24-hour emergency roadside assistance with all rentals. Business reservations are also easy at the dedicated corporate reservation desk.

Customers who enjoy the services of Alamo, at O.R Tambo International Airport, or at any other of their rental locations, can become Quicksilver members, and make the task of reservations and rentals a much simpler process. Quicksilver members can also skip the rental counter by using the Alamo self-service kiosks at some locations, enjoy membership discounts and receive special members-only deals. It is free and easy to enrol for this membership from Alamo’s website.

Alamo, at Johannesburg’s airport, offers a wide range of vehicles, which are all divided into various car categories, such as Economy, Compact, Midsize, Standard, Full-size and Van. Economy and Compact vehicles are smaller, and include the Kia Picanto 1.1 and Toyota Yaris 1.3. These are ideal cars for travelling around the city, and are excellent choices for single drivers or couples. They may even have the extra features of anti-lock brakes, power steering and air bags. Another example of a Compact vehicle is the VW Polo Classic 1.6. Midsize vehicles are slightly larger, and include the Chevrolet Aveo 1.6.

Families often hire Standard sized vehicles such as the Toyota Avensis 2.0, or even Full size vehicles, similar to the BMW 320i 2.0, as they are larger inside and have more room for luggage. SUV's are also quite popular among family renters, as they seat up to five people. The Daihatsu Terios 1.5 is a Compact SUV, while the Hyundai Tuscon 2.0 is found in the ordinary sized SUV category. Sometimes an even larger vehicle is required; therefore Alamo offers a range of minivans and vans for hire. The VW T5 Microbus is an example of one of the largest vehicles available, seating up to eight passengers. This vehicle has a manual transmission, power steering and air bag protection. Premium vehicles such as the Mercedes Benz C180 1.8 are also available for more prestigious events.
