Alamo car hire CDW

Hi there

I am in Orlando in October this year and have a hire car through a Virgin fly drive with basic insurance, the cost of adding CDW is about £300 and I am wondering if I book CDW through a US insurance company would Alamo accept it or insist that I use there own CDW. I sent Alamo numerous emails but they seem slightly evasive on the subject.

There are a lot of insurances and taxes you need when you hire a car in the USA. Perhaps you should think about getting one of Alamos insurance packages and not just CDW? Hiring a car in the USA is the cheap bit it is the insurances that cost all the money.

Most people will tell you the 'free' car is just not free. Often you can hire the car with all insurance for less than the free one charges you for the insurance, even with getting it from Alamo. Plus is the small basic car enough, another charge for upgrading!
