ALAMO Car Rental Services at Sydney Airport

Sydney Airport is also commonly referred to as the Kingsford Smith Airport, and is located in the suburb of Mascot, 8 km from the CBD of Sydney. This airport in New South Wales, Australia, is the largest airport on the continent, handling over 44 million passengers per year, and is therefore a very important gateway for tourists and business professionals. The majority of the airport’s traffic is domestic, but it handles the majority of Australia’s international air traffic as well. A variety of transport options are available for arriving passengers, including cars from car rental companies. At Sydney Airport, Alamo is one of the major car hire companies, and passengers are fond of Alamo’s low rental rates and wide range of quality vehicles for hire.

The rental counters of Alamo are found in the arrival areas of the three terminal buildings of Sydney Airport. Terminal 1 is used for international arrivals and departures, while Terminal 2 and 3 handle all domestic flights to and from the airport. While it is a large airport, passengers should have no trouble finding the car hire companies once they have collected their baggage, as all facilities are well signposted. Passengers can also hire their vehicle in advance of their flight to Sydney Airport, from Alamo’s website at Online, customers will find all details regarding Alamo’s rental terms and conditions, and a list of the vehicle categories available at Sydney Airport. Customers will also be able to hire additional items of equipment, such as baby seats or a satellite navigation system.

Additional items for hire will cost a few extra dollars per day of rental, but a car seat of the correct size is essential for the safety of your little ones, and a satellite navigation system can prove to be highly convenient for all travelers who are unfamiliar with the road network in and around Sydney. From the airport, the M1, or Southern Cross Drive is the fastest road link to the center of the city, while the M5 South Western motorway and the M5 East Freeway provide access to the south western suburbs. There is also a ring road consisting of various streets that surround the airport. Before leaving Sydney Airport, drivers should ensure that they are comfortable with the workings of their rented car, and know which type of fuel to use for the vehicle, as some may use petrol, while others are of a diesel variety. Drivers should also have the emergency numbers to contact if an accident or breakdown of the vehicle occurs.

The terminal buildings of Sydney Airport are well equipped to support the needs of passengers in wheelchairs, and individuals with reduced mobility challenges. There are ramps and lifts, adequate toilet facilities, and all counters, desks, offices, telephones, internet connections etc. are accessible. Alamo, at Sydney Airport, may even offer the use of hand controls for drivers with a lower limb deficiency on certain automatic vehicles. This device operates the brake and accelerator pedals of the vehicle, and may come with a steering wheel knob for additional driving assistance. Hand controls from Sydney Airport should be booked in advance. The majority of car hire companies also allow a disabled person who is unable to drive to be the primary renter. A designated driver will provide the valid drivers license, while the credit card of the disabled customer will be used for payment of the car hire period. No extra charges are applicable to either service for mobility challenged individuals.

Vehicles from Alamo are all of the latest models possible, and come in a range of sizes. The cars are all booked by category, rather than by their specific makes and models. The smallest car offered by Alamo is the Hyundai Getz, either with a manual or automatic transmission, and is ideal for driving in the city of Sydney if you don’t have too many items of luggage to transport. Similar vehicles to the Hyundai Getz are found in the Economy and Compact categories, and are considered to be very fuel efficient, with affordable rental rates. Larger vehicles from Alamo include the Skoda Octavia, Toyota Camry and the Toyota Kluger 3.5, which is found in the Fullsize Wagon category. Alamo also has a nice selection of more elegant vehicles, ideal for business renters, such as the Audi A6 and Audi A4.

Passengers travelling in larger groups may need a vehicle that can seat a greater number of people, and therefore Alamo provides the categories of Minivan and Van. The Kia Carnival 2.4 is an example vehicle found in the Minivan category, with room for eight passengers, while the Toyota Commuter can accommodate up to twelve people. Vehicles from Alamo, at Sydney Airport, can be arranged as a one way hire, which means that they can be collected from Sydney Airport, but then returned to another rental location, either in Sydney, or in another town or city nearby. However, the majority of car hire companies do not allow their vehicles to be driving into the Northern Territory, Western Australia or onto ferries for crossing over to the islands. It best to confirm with Alamo if it is possible to return your rented car to the location most suitable for your journey in Australia. A one way hire may have additional charges.
