USA: Florida, May 2011, Alamo-Rent-A-Car

Kategorie: Car Rentals

As mentioned before arriving in Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport is easy and easy it is to catch the shuttle to the Rental Car Station, which stops quite next to the exit of the Terminal. The transfer just takes a few minutes. There is only one building for all the companies, and Alamo is one of them.

Usually you cannot make any reservation on a specific type of car, only on the general category. The lady at the Alamo desk was friendly and helpful, explained everything to us and helped us find the way to the section where the rental cars where located. And luckily we finally received exactly the car we wanted: Chevrolet Tahoe XFE. We decided on renting this type of SUV as it seemed to be quite comfortable for the amount of miles we planned to travel.

The car was in good shape, if you don´t count those little spots and scratches on the outside as well as stains on the floor inside. But anyway, this Tahoe was such a nice and comfortable car and –I could not believe it- very easy to handle. It never let us down. This SUV took us all the way down south to Key West and back up and over to Southwest Florida. About 3000 miles we went.

To me this was the perfect car for this trip. I could not have wished for a better one!

Therefore I was quite sad when we had to turn it back in at Ft. Myers airport.

Returning the car was about as easy as the pick-up had been. The employee went around the vehicle, had a look at the gas meter, took the miles and handed us a receipt.

That was it … bye, bye Tahoe …

Thank you to Alamo for the great service!
