Las Vegas Airport is one of the large airports in the United States of America, and is an important gateway to the famous and fascinating city of Las Vegas. The airport is found in Clark County, in the state of Nevada, and just five miles from the central business district of Las Vegas. Another name commonly used for the airport is the McCarran International Airport, and it is recognised by its IATA code of LAS. There are car hire companies available for arriving passengers who are in need of transport, such as Alamo Las Vegas Airport, and they provide cars that are of a high quality. Alamo in particular has excellent car rental rates and a wide selection of vehicle categories.
Las Vegas Airport is served by a large number of airline carriers, but is a hub facility for Great Lakes Airlines. The majority of airport flights arrive at Terminal 1, as it is the largest, with several gates and four concourses. However, many international flights will arrive at Terminal 2, a facility with 8 gates. The airport will also soon have a new terminal building, that will be referred to as Terminal 3, and this building will be dedicated to international arrivals and departures. Although ground transport options are available from outside of the Las Vegas Airport terminals, passengers will need to travel some distance to the car rental offices of Alamo, and the other Las Vegas Airport car hire companies, as they are located in a new Car Rental Centre along Gilespie Street. Alamo can be reached by taking one of the free car rental shuttles that depart about every five minutes from Exit Doors 10 or 11. The shuttles are accessible to disabled passengers as well.
Alamo at this rental location is open twenty-four hours a day, and is used by many of the airport’s tourists, as the company is popular for leisure car rentals. The company of Alamo was established some thirty years ago, and have since established thousands of car rental locations around the world. Alamo began with a few locations in Florida, but quickly became popular in many countries around the world. Today, Alamo continues to impress their customers with high-quality but low-cost rental vehicles, and a rental experience that is fun and friendly. Existing customers who are fond of Alamo’s services are encouraged to join the Quicksilver membership, and enjoy a number of exclusive benefits. The membership is free of charge, and is Alamo’s loyalty program. At many of their locations, Quicksilver members can save time with simplified reservation and rental processes, and may even be able to skip the rental counter by using an Alamo self-service kiosk. Members-only deals are also available, helping the customer to save money.
Vehicles from the Las Vegas Airport car rental companies are recommended to be reserved in advance, and online for the cheapest rental rates. Some of the car categories available from Alamo include Economy, Compact, Midsize, Standard, Fullsize, Minivan, SUV, Crossover and Pickup. There are also special vehicles that have more style and elegance found in the Luxury and Premium categories, such as the Toyota Avalon, Cadillac DTS, Lincoln Navigator (SUV), CMC Acadia (Crossover) and the Chevrolet Silverado, a Premium Pickup. These cars are more expensive than ordinary rentals, but include some nice features, such as cruise control, power steering, air bags, power lock doors, tilt steering wheels and air conditioning.
Customers who would prefer a less pricy car from Alamo can hire the Chevrolet Aveo, Nissan Versa and Toyota Corolla from the first few categories mentioned, or the Ford Fusion from the Standard category. The Toyota Prius is an example of a Standard Hybrid. Sometimes a larger vehicle is required from Las Vegas Airport, perhaps for groups of travellers, and a few vehicles from Alamo are ideal in this case. Seven passengers can be seated in the Dodge Caravan, and the Toyota Sienna is ideal for eight. There are also larger Passenger Vans for hire, similar to the Chevrolet Express for fifteen people. Additional cars and SUVs from Alamo include the Jeep Wrangler, Hummer H3, Chevrolet Suburban, Ford Escape, Chevrolet Tahoe, Chevrolet Impala and the Ford Mustang, a convertible.
Alamo will only accept renters who are over the age of 21, but all persons between the ages of 21 and 24 may be subject to higher rental rates, and may not be permitted to hire from all car categories. All drivers should present a valid drivers license upon collection of the vehicle, and a major credit or debit card will be required for a hold of the estimated total rental charges at the beginning of the rental period. Vehicles may be returned to Las Vegas Airport, or they can be arranged as an Alamo one way hire, and be delivered to a rental location other than Las Vegas Airport. One way hires may only be permitted to be driven to cities in nearby states, such as California, but all details of this type of rental should be confirmed with Alamo. Additional costs may also be involved.
When reserving a vehicle, remember to include additional items of equipment in your rental should they be required. A child seat is essential for the younger members of your family, and a satellite navigation system could prove to be most useful, especially to those who are unfamiliar with the roads of Vegas. Child seats and GPS units will have extra charges per day of hire, or per rental contract. Alamo hand controls for disabled drivers may also be requested from the rental location of Las Vegas Airport. Hand controls are, however, free of charge.
Alamo Las Vegas Airport is a wonderful choice of car rental company for all leisure travellers.
