Alamo Question..

Hubby has 9 points on his licence.. Ive looked at Alamo policies but it just says as long as you have a full valid licence you can rent with them.. Has anyone had any issues with this? I have heard that some companies dont allow you to rent with more than 6 points..

It doesn't mention points on the terms and conditions

Blimey no one would be able to rent a car if that was the case lol

I think there could be a problem if you've been banned though

Thanks.. Yeah i read through the terms and conditions and it didnt mention points, was just double checking cause i did read on here somewhere that some companies dont rent out cars to those with 6 or more points... Lets just hope my husband can get from now to May without geting 3 more!!

My understanding is that as long as you have a valid driver's license, then it's irrelevant how many points you have, you'll still be able to rent a car. I've heard of UK hire companies having a 6-point threshold, but not USA.
