Car rental insurance in Huntsville

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Huntsville car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Huntsville.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car rental insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Huntsville car rental.

6.0 GoodApr 22 2021
Pros: They put the spinner knob on when I mentioned that I didn't need hand controls.Cons: Customer service I am still trying to figure out what the extra $109 charge is for and no one will tell me.
10.0 ExcellentMar 24 2021
Pros: The staff was friendly and helpful
2.0 MediocreSep 13 2019
First day in business?Pros: I liked the gas mileage of the car.Cons: Agent at counter advised they did not have the full-size car I ordered, she had no idea of the different insurance coverages offered and what each one covered, told me to return the car with a gas receipt to prove I bought the gas that would be in the car, had to walk at least 1/4 mile to reach the car I rented, the rented car was dirty and had a service light on along with a low tire pressure light, I was advised there “may or may not” be someone there to receive my car upon return so I was to fill out the mileage, gas, condition report at drop off. I could go on but why bother, no more AVIS for me - very unprofessional.
6.0 GoodSep 7 2019
Cons: The car smelled terrible like smoke. That’s not good when it’s 97 degrees out and you have to have windows closed with air on. It gave me a terrible headache.
3.6 MediocreJul 7 2019
Pros: Comfortable and lots of roomCons: My pick up time was for 8 am cause was going out of time. Person was late getting to work to open store so my trip start time was delayed by 30 minutes.
4.8 OkayJul 1 2019
Pros: Car rental staff was nice, the location can't be beat--just get off the down escalator right by Baggage Claim and there it is!Cons: Renters were at the mercy of whoever looked at the long list of reservations and did not authorize delivering more cars for rental until an SOS from the desk staff. Waited over an hour for cars to be available so they could rent them--NOT professional at all and very unhappy customers!
6.4 GoodMay 30 2019
Pros: Fast customer service.Cons: Selection of cars.
10.0 ExcellentMay 2 2019
Pros: ease of pick up and drop offCons: nothing!
8.8 ExcellentMay 2 2019
Pros: Easy check in and drop off. Moved quickly out of airport at arrival and through checkout on departure.Cons: Directions at drop off could be displayed more prominently. Sign on stand at head of drop off lane, versus laying on floor. Posted at beginning of drop of lane versus at the head since parking is to fill available spaces which might just be taken up by the time you see the sign.
10.0 ExcellentMar 18 2019
Pros: Super easy to drop off. Friendly too.

2.0 MediocreMay 15 2021
Pros: I hated literally everything about this rentalCons: When I select a specific airport I do not expect the reservation to be switched to a satellite rental office 30 minutes away from the airport and then be told by your customer service that there is absolutely nothing that can be done. Time, effort, money, and stress added to travel is not something that is needed. In the event I consider using your services again I’ve requested friends to brain me with a heavy object. This state would be preferable to trying to the nonsense I experienced.
8.8 ExcellentSep 19 2020
Pros: I like the offer of picking up the vehicle a day early for free and the free upgrade.Cons: Cleanliness of the vehicle...smelled of smoke and no covid19 assurances as in the commercial, in fact it wasn’t even addressed by the agent until I asked.
8.4 ExcellentAug 17 2020
Pros: Car was greatCons: Took a long time to get my car
8.0 ExcellentMay 4 2020

8.0 ExcellentNov 26 2019
Pros: Ease of pickup at the airport
6.8 GoodAug 28 2019
Cons: My reservation was made for Huntsville airport but you made for another location miles across town with no means of getting there. I had to take a cab at my own expense. I am asking for reimbursement for that and additional amount for the delay in getting to my destination and the frustration cause

2.0 MediocreMay 3 2021
Cons: I reserved a car online, and flew 800 miles . But when i arrived they told me i was not eligible to rent because of a deductible in 2004. Something I still have no knowledge of. Also poor customer service in Huntsville. Alabama.
8.4 ExcellentOct 16 2020
Cons: The Lin’s seemed to move slow when I was picking up the car. There was only one person in front of me and it took a good 10 minutes to get me through the line. I’ve always thought car rental companies should pay attention to that metric. The last thing someone wants to be doing after a long airline flight is wait in a slow moving line.
2.0 MediocreSep 24 2020
Pros: Nothing.Cons: The vehicles in my area were advertised falsely. When I arrived to Alamo to pick up the vehicle I found on Kayak, they told me no cars had been available for weeks and had no idea why I found otherwise. Kayak should follow this up. These types of issues can create unnecessary stress for travelers.

6.0 GoodJul 19 2020
Pros: The drop off was easy.Cons: We had a 6:30 pm pickup. We waited over an hour in the heat to get the car. They only had one person scheduled to clean the cars and he was working for three other car rentals in the airport. Very unsatisfactory!
10.0 ExcellentJul 6 2020
Pros: The staff was superb. The car was clean, comfortable and easy to drive. The drop off was very convenient and quick.Cons: When first entered the airport it wasn't quite clear where to drop off the car for the Alamo rental. I saw all the other signs for Hertz, Budget, Thrifty, etc., but not for Alamo. I had to ask. Everything else was super good and I am happy. I will rent with Alamo again and will recommend it to everyone. Thank you very much.
6.4 GoodJun 14 2020
Pros: Staff friendly and helpful. Drop off very easy.Cons: Pick up to long of a wait 45 mins to 1 hr.. After checking in.
2.0 MediocreMay 3 2020
Pros: Nothing. The staff wasn't at the airport to rent me the car though my plane was late and I called ahead. Will NEVER rent from Alamo againCons: You could have upgeld your end of the rental contract.
8.0 ExcellentAug 28 2019
Pros: Clean vehicleCons: Returning the car to the airport location in Huntsville is most difficult from local streets with few airport direction signs! Huntsville is on the bottom of the list for this category. Few local street airport signs and the road into the airport is a nightmare maze. Check it out.

4.8 OkayAug 14 2019
Pros: When I arrived to pick up the car, the car I reserved was available. I was informed that I could accept a two-car downgrade or an upgrade to a 15 passager van. Needless-to-say, neither was acceptable. It took nearly 45 minutes to convince the agent to request a car trade with one of the other renCons: trading a car with one of the other rental car agencies, in order to honor the rental agreement should have been the 1st option. I was eventually given a Malibu instead of the premium vehicle that was listed on my reservation. Additionally, the car's gas tank was only 3/4 full. Better service.
3.6 MediocreJul 22 2019
Pros: Desk helpCons: Did not have the size car I reserved
8.0 ExcellentJun 23 2019

2.0 MediocreMay 24 2019
Pros: The only positive was I didn't have to wait to present my ID and form of payment.Cons: After making a reservation, no car was available at the location I specified. They ask if I would mind driving 30 minutes away, to the airport, to pick one up. I was finally able to get the car I reserved by driving to another location anyway. Fortunately, it was only about 3 miles away.

I requested a change to same size car they gave me one but was not the same size car and it started to roar on the way back I think it was the tires are bearings??? the lady I spoke to was not concerned that I was delayed for my trip!!!!! because of a smoked in car!!!!!!!!! I don't like budget car rental at this location I had an issue before with them but was forced to go there because there were no cars at my home location.
2.0 MediocreSep 5 2017
poor service on a budget by Rodney HeathingtonPros: Poorly managed. Not dependable at all. I will never schedule anything else with company.Cons: I booked a car rental about 4 1/2 months out for trip to texas and not only was my rental was not ready but they informed us that thy did not carry this vehicle that we booked. It would have made sense to notify us sooner than to come to bubget the day of trying to obtain the vehicle and being told that we don't carry this type of vehicle . If i knew sooner then there's no foul, but to wait until the last minute to inform us is bad business.
5.2 OkaySep 6 2016
Cons: Had to use Avis personnel because there was no one there from Budget. Computer's were down and it was a long wait.

All's well that ends wellPros: I like that the rental car counter is right inside the Huntsville airport and that the cars are right there in the bottom level of the parking deck, no shuttles to have to deal with! I also like the friendliness of the Hertz staff who were covering for Dollar and Thrifty.Cons: I didn't like that the first staff person gave us a compact car though we had made a reservation and paid for a mid size car. Thankfully my husband caught this mistake and went back to the counter. It took a while but the second staff person took good care of us and we got the right size car. It was clean and in good shape.

Pros: Staff was helpful at counter. (Hertz counter) Vehicle was very clean.Cons: No one meets you at drop off so you have to guess where to leave vehicle. I carried my paperwork in to the Dollar Office and gave it to rental employee. I was asked if email receipt was okay, which it was.
