I was just wondering if anyone would be able to advise me, as I have found myself rather perplexed. I'm from the UK, and the situation is this - my girlfriend and I are travelling from Boston to San Francisco between 17th March and 31st May - a total of 74 days. We are looking at Alamo to rent a car long term for this, as it is the cheapest option at £1,600 for the full two months in a mid size SUV plus the following :
Collision Damage Waiver (USA: No Excess)
Extended Liability Protection (EP) (USA/CA: up to $1 mil)
Customer Facility Charge $6.00 Per Day
Concession Recovery Fee 11.11%
Convention Ctr Surchg 10.00 Per Rental
Parking Surcharge .60 Per Rental
Vehicle Lic Recovery Fee 2.00 Per Day
Now, my main concern is no mention whatsoever about one way fees. I have tried contacting Alamo, to no avail, but have seen a number of threads stating that for certain journeys/bookings/country of booking etc etc, they waive this fee? Surely it would have to be mentioned? Or am I just being naive...
And last but not least, if anyone has any experience/knowledge about a deposit, that'd be appreciated. Again, I have heard many people say they only swipe your credit card, with no money taken off, but was just wondering if anyone has any experience of this.
Thanks guys, appreciate your time.
