Pros:

Yes Staff was very friendly, apologised that the vehicle I had booked was not available, but gave me another vehicle which suited my reason for hiring the vehicle. I was offered a ‘Mine’ vehicle with reflector strips, but when I advised staff that I wanted a vehicle to travel to Cairns for my brother’s funeral, staff went out of their way to secure a vehicle similar to the one I had booked online Well done and very much appreciated.

Cons:

Just to make sure what one books online makes it happen that way. It turned out well in the end. Thank you.

Very friendly and helpful staff at the pick-up/drop-off counter. The vehicle was a Corolla Hybrid which was surprisingly economical to drive. All good!

The truth of the matter was my event in Townsville was cancelled. I also had air tickets and accommodation to cancel. The car hire with Alamo was the easiest and nicest to cancel with. I would certainly go with them next time when my event is rescheduled.

The rental worked well. Pickup quick and easy. Car was a dream to drive. Nobody at drop off, dropped keys and was told they would check it in and send the invoice. Unfortunately we were charged twice for different amounts and no one answers the phone when you ring. Waiting for a response to our email.

The car looks neat and clean, enough space for two. The touch screen in the car doesn't work, and the car has lots of ants in the back door frame and passenger door.
