  • The ease, speed, and convenience of reserving your car online or over the phone can be taken advantage of at any time. Through KAYAK, you can easily decide which vehicle class will most conveniently transport you around Ontario. You'll find a fleet of Alamo car rentals in Ottawa inside the Ottawa International Airport (YOW) terminal. Alamo boasts friendly customer representatives who can help you with any questions or concerns about the available vehicles or the rental process.
  • When travelling as a big family or a group of friends and with lots of baggage, you might consider renting an eight or nine-seater minivan. KAYAK presents sample models with fundamental features and their comparable rental prices. Alamo may not guarantee a specific model but will match your budget with a suitable minivan. The available nine-seater vans may differ from the ones presented on our website. But the company’s agents will hand over keys to a similar model featuring your desired passenger capacity, mobility, fuel economy, comfort, and trunk size.
  • Generally, Alamo is known for its low-cost service. It has a best-rate guarantee policy that prioritizes customers who book cars online at least two days before pickup time. So the earlier you book, the higher the chances of getting a cheaper car rental in Ottawa. To qualify for this offer, you must claim it by filling out an online form. Then you'll get a confirmation email showing your lower booking rate in the next 24 hours.
  • We recommend purchasing additional insurance for Alamo car rentals in Ottawa. Of course, you don't want to imagine an unfortunate event during a vacation or business trip.
