Car Hire


Probably the most comprehensive car rental package available

Ranch Rider and Alamo have teamed up to bring you these superb fully inclusive rates

  • Outstanding value for money prices
  • Alamo Direct Road
  • Extra drivers FREE of Charge
  • Alamo Gold car rental – FREE tank of fuel

Our Gold Rates include all taxes, insurances, Airport user fees, CDW, extended protection, up to three extra drivers and a tank full of fuel.

Young Drivers – Not included in price. All drivers must be aged 21 or over and carry a full valid Driving Licence from their country of residence. Drivers under 25 incur an additional $25 per driver, per day, payable upon check-in.

Child Seats – Children up to five years old are required by law to be transported in approved child seats. These must be requested at time of booking and will be provided by Alamo at a cost of currently $5 per day. A $50 returnable deposit is also required.

Included in the cost of your rental

Extended Protection (EP) – EP provides you with extra third party insurance, and gives you $1,000,000 coverage for accidental death or injury to yourself or your passengers should you be hit by an uninsured or underinsured motorist. EP also covers you up to the first $1,000,000 of third party liability claims against you and costs $11.99 per car, per day. This may seem expensive, but in a country where litigation and damage cost can run to hundreds of thousands of dollars, the extra coverage makes good sense.

Collision Damage Waver - CDW protects you against damage to the Alamo car (including theft and vandalism), regardless of who is at fault. Without CDW, you would be personally responsible for any damage up to the full value of your Alamo vehicle.

Local Fees and Taxes – These can prove an expensive addition in many car rental company’s charges, and an addition which may come as quite a shock if you have not built it into your budget.

Choosing a suitable car

Points to consider before deciding

  • Number of adults and children in party
  • Amount and size of luggage (separate roof racks are not available)
  • Length of journey and passenger comfort
  • Infant seats for under-fives
  • Ideal car size (upgrade?)
  • Party of 6-8 people? Consider a Minivan (one car avoids duplicating costs)
  • Extended Protection included for peace of mind

Car availability – If a car of the reserved size is unavailable, you will be offered a free upgrade to the next larger size of car.

Deposit - A major credit card is required to be used as a deposit on the car and will be debited for any incidental charges on completion of your rental.

Note – Every driver must present a full, valid driving licence from country of residence. Please present your prepaid car rental voucher at the Alamo/National car rental counter on arrival.

National Car Rental

In certain locations to serve your needs better we may use National Car Rental. We then use National Fully Enhanced rates, which offer the same cover as Alamo Gold. National car hire rates are £20.00 per week higher or £3.00 per day higher. National offers a $250.00 drop charge between major destinations. For instance pick up a car in Boston and drop off in San Francisco, which is an excellent deal. In certain smaller destinations National may be the only car hire available.

Our car suppliers will not guarantee any particular make or model of vehicle. They reserve the right to supply an appropriate vehicle in the same category. Rates may not include a Customer Facility Charge (CFC) and/or Homeland Security Fee (HSF) which is payable, where applicable by customer at time of rental.

Legislation or regulations or the cost of fuel may effect National/Alamo’s pricing procedures. On all inclusive products, National/Alamo reserves the right, without notice to (i) charge customers, at the time of rental or thereafter, for the amount of any additional or increased surcharges, fees, taxes or increased fuel costs incurred subsequent to entering into this agreement, or (ii) increase client’s tax, surcharge or fuel inclusive rates by an amount equivalent to the additional or increased tax, surcharge, or fuel cost subsequent to entering into this agreement.


We have various options of car hire both in South Africa and Argentina, using a variety of suppliers such as Avis, Budget and Hertz.

Our car hire packages to these countries reflect the best available inclusive cover in the local market conditions.
