Launched in Florida in 1974, Alamo Rent A Car has has fostered longstanding partnerships with the airline industry, travel destinations, travel agents and tour operators to become one of the most trusted vehicle hire companies around. Since entering the market over forty years ago, it has expanded its operations throughout the US, Canada, Mexico, Latin America and, most recently, Asia, making it a first choice for millions of renters worldwide. It was also selected as a ‘Chosen Provider’ in April 2018 by consumer rights group, Which?, adding to its already impressive reputation.

 

Its website is simple enough to use, laid out much in the same format as similar car rental sites, with tabs where details of pickup location, date, time and number of passengers can all be entered. After putting in all your preferences, a list of vehicles will appear, with options ranging from ‘Economy’ to ‘Luxury SUV’ and with prices to match. As well as a small photo of the car, there is also a checklist of what is included, such as number of doors, air conditioning, locking and sound system, and interior.

 

One of my favourite features of the website is that after selecting your vehicle, you are then given the option of ‘packages’ to choose from, be it Standard, Alamo Gold or Alamo Gold Plus. While Standard includes just the basics, Alamo Gold has fuel service option, as well as three additional drivers, whilst Gold Plus provides a GPS navigation system. When using Alamo to rent a car, I like having the option to upgrade to have additional drivers when embarking on long journeys as it is necessary to swap who takes wheel every few hours. GPS navigation, meanwhile, is handy as it means you don’t have to run your battery down on your phone or waste data.

 

One issue I found with Alamo was that its rewards scheme is not as good as other car rental companies. Although it offers benefits, such as air miles with affiliated airlines and points for affiliated hotels, the number of businesses they work with is not that wide ranging, meaning your points are limited. This means that if you are a frequent traveller, you may want to look for a company that offers more benefits.

Pros
  • Simple, easy to use website
  • Lots of vehicle options
  • Ability to upgrade package
Cons
  • Limited rewards scheme

TravelSites.com is the best travel site list in the world.🏆💯🥇🌟

TravelSites.com is the go to place online to find information on the best websites, smartphone apps, books, YouTube channels and documentaries for travelers. Written with my years of experience trotting the globe, TravelSites.com gives budding young backpackers the chance to discover the top resources available for getting the most out of their trip, be it renting a car, learning the local dialect, finding a photographer or even just knowing what the weather will be like for the week. I have researched the internet to bring you a list of the top items in each category, while every single one has been meticulously reviewed, highlighting unique features, comparison to similar products, and all the pros and cons.

 

Why did you make TravelSites.com?💖🔥🚀

Well, I found that although there is naturally lots of information online concerning travel-related products and services, they seem to be scattered about, leaving the user to laboriously search for each individual item. If you wanted, for example, to discover an inspiring travel documentary while booking accommodation and flights to Rome, you would have to have at least three different tabs open at once. TravelSites.com puts all the information you need in one place, meaning you will not have to search far and wide to simply find out the best website for reserving a room in a hotel. With more than 40 different categories, travelers can stay on the same website to gather all the information they need, not only saving them time but also saving them money, by reading through the reviews to find the cheapest option.

 

What can you find on My lists and how did I rank them?🕵️‍♂️🧠🔗

My lists feature more than 40 different travel-related categories containing every resource a backpacker could ever need. Need help planning a trip? Want to keep up to date with the latest travel news? Looking for an inspiring book or blog? Desperate to find a restaurant away from the crowds? I’ve got you covered. My lists have been carefully put together by me and combined by quality, efficiency, value and functionalism to rank the items in descending order, with number one considered the item offering the best of all four factors. The criteria was constant throughout each category, whether it was for a cruise booking website or an Instagram account, in order to bring travelers the resources that would be the most useful for travelers.

 

How do I contact you, if I have a question?💡📞📧

Hmm, if you think that any best travel site is really missing in my travel directory, I can be reached by 📧email, Skype, Facebook Messenger, Twitter or Linkedin.
