Alamo San Diego International Airport Airport
San Diego International Airport is found in California, a state in North America, and is also known as the Lindbergh Field Airport. It serves international and domestic flights by several airline companies, including Southwest Airlines and Alaska Airlines, for which it is a focus city, and handles almost seventeen million passengers every year. The airport’s terminals are well equipped for arriving and departing passengers, and nearby are a number of well know car rental companies, one of which is Alamo San Diego International Airport, a company that is very popular amongst leisure travellers.
The SAN airport is located approximately 3 miles to the northwest of central San Diego, and consists of three terminal buildings and a single runway. It’s airline companies arrive from over 50 destinations in the US, Canada, Europe and Mexico, and there are approximately 550 departures and arrivals each day. It is therefore considered as one of the busiest single-runway airports in the world. Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 of the airport are used by the majority of airline companies, and Terminal 2 houses the facilities for international flight operations. The third terminal of the airport, the Commuter Terminal, is only used for flights between Los Angeles and San Diego. Although many facilities can be found within the terminals, the airport’s car hire companies are off-site, which means that a shuttle service is required. In the future, the airport plans to construct a new rental car centre with space for all the car hire companies and their vehicles for the convenience of customers and to reduce the number of shuttles required.
In the baggage claim areas, passengers will find reservation boards for Alamo, as well as courtesy telephones that may be used to request a free shuttle bus, or to request a shuttle with wheelchair lifts. However, passengers most often find that buses are frequently available, and there is no need to call for one. From Terminal 1, the shuttles leave from the centre traffic aisle, and from Terminal 2, they leave from the traffic island at the far west end of the building. Both areas are within easy walking distance of the baggage claim halls, and have signs that lead the way. Further assistance can be obtained from the volunteer airport ambassadors as well.
Once at Alamo, the primary renter and all additional drivers listed on the rental agreement will need to provide their driving licenses, which should have been issued in the United States. They may also be Canadian-endorsed. Drivers from a foreign country should clarify their rental requirements with Alamo, as an International Driving Permit may be required. The primary renter, regardless of age, will need a major credit card as well, however, persons older than 25 can use a debit card at the start of the rental period. Persons younger must produce a credit card such as American Express, Diner’s Club Int’l, Discover, Visa or MasterCard. Young drivers will pay higher rental rates as well, and may not be able to hire from certain vehicle categories.
Alamo has been providing high quality vehicles to leisure travellers around the world for over thirty years. They began with a few locations in Florida, but quickly grew to more US locations, and to locations in other parts of the world. Their services are mainly directed at persons who need a vehicle for private journeys, rather than for business travel, however, they do offer a comprehensive business program with many benefits. In the mid-1990’s, Alamo was the first car rental company to offer real-time booking capabilities on the internet, and in 2005, was the only company with an online check-in system. They have also been the official rental car company of the Walt Disney World Resorts in Orlando for many years.
The San Diego International Airport car hire companies offer vehicles of all sizes, and vehicles that are in good mechanical condition. They are cleaned as well, and checked for safety before every rental. Try to return your rented car in the same condition as it was received. Popular cars for hire from Alamo include the Chevrolet Aveo, Nissan Versa, Toyota Corolla, Ford Fusion and Chevrolet Impala, while larger SUVs and Minivans are similar to the Dodge Grand Caravan, Toyota Sienna, Ford Escape, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Chevrolet Tahoe and Chevrolet Suburban. Customers who enjoy moving around in style will find the Luxury, Premium and Luxury SUV classes appealing, which contain the Cadillac DTS, Nissan Maxima, Lincoln MKX and Lincoln Navigator. Popular with more adventurous customers are the Hummer H3, Jeep Wrangler and Ford Mustang.
Alamo one way hires may be possible to arrange for the majority of vehicles mentioned, however, cars in certain categories may not be permitted to be delivered to a rental location other than San Diego International Airport. One way hire services are convenient for some travellers, but keep in mind that additional charges could be added for the service. With a hired vehicle, child seats and satellite navigation systems can be requested, and are sometimes both considered as an essential part of a trip in San Diego. The GPS units are of a high quality, and may include a selection of languages. Take good care of these rented items, and return them safety with the vehicle.
This American airport is completely accessible to disabled passengers, as it is equipped with suitable restrooms, pavement ramps and elevators. The on-airport shuttles have wheelchair lifts, and the car hire company buildings are accessible as well. From Alamo, hand controls for persons with a lower limb disability may be requested, and this device is free of charge. It is used on an automatic vehicle, operating the brake and accelerator pedals. The device should be reserved in advance. Contact Alamo, at San Diego International Airport, for further information.
