Car Hire USA and Canada

Rev up your motor, set the sat-nav and make sure you’ve got a tin of sucky sweets in the glove box — we’re heading off along the highways and byways of the USA and Canada. Car hire in the USA is the best way to see as much of this insanely big, brash, and complex country, and you can even hop over the border and check out its northern cousin, Canada. Car hire in America is also probably the most cost-effective way to plan a holiday, and with car rental offers and special deals, your dollar goes miles further.

If you thought a driving holiday in the USA was fun, just wait until you see its northern cousin! Canada is almost as big as the USA, but with fewer people, more moose, and a whole heap of potential road trips that’ll take you through some of the best scenery in the world. And no, it’s not always snowing in Canada – head to Toronto in the summer and you’ll be wandering around its charming Victorian streets in your t-shirt. Here’s a few top spots to check out if you decide to opt for Canada for your holiday:

Already booked?

Alamo online check in

Alamo’s online check in gives you the option to pre enter most/all of your details prior to travel saving you time upon arrival.

If you are picking up a car at one of the Choice airport locations you can complete ‘Skip the Counter’. This means that when you arrive you can head straight to the garage to the row of the car type you have booked and choose a car. Then you just drive to the barrier, show your rental agreement, driving licence and credit card to exit the garage and get on your way!

Alamo USA online check in is available at www.alamo.com/virgin

Alamo Choice

Choice allows you to select the make, model and colour of the car you want from a row of the car group you have booked e.g Intermediate SUV, Minivan 7 seater etc. Choice is available at 42 Airport locations (including all our Virgin Gateways).
