One of these companies is Alamo, and their rental counters can be found in the arrival areas of the terminal buildings. Alamo offers a wide range of vehicles at excellent rental rates. Alamo is just one of a number of companies providing car rentals at Manchester Airport.

Alamo, at Manchester Airport, is open every day of the week, 24 hours a day, and customers can hire a vehicle directly from their rental counters at the airport, or in advance using the form above. It is often recommended to make your booking in advance, to ensure your ideal car’s availability. It is also wise to hire any extra equipment necessary for your journey in advance, such as a baby safety seat or booster seat, or satellite navigation systems. Safety seats are an absolute requirement if you are traveling with young children, and a GPS unit is a wonderful piece of equipment to have with you, especially if you are traveling in unfamiliar territory.

Besides their top mapping features and easy to use designs, they are also pre-programmed with thousands of points of interest, which will enable you to always find the nearest gas station, hotel, restaurant, shopping center, pharmacy etc. Alamo’s website is comprehensive, and hiring a vehicle online is as easy as one-two-three!

These capacities should be used as a general guideline only, as each vehicle varies according to its manufacture.

The Mini category at Alamo contains smaller sized vehicles which are ideal for driving in the city. An example is the Chevrolet Matiz 1.0, a vehicle seating four people, and with amenities such as anti-lock brakes, power steering, air bag protection and a manual transmission. They also have AM/FM stereo and a CD player. Vehicles in the Economy category are another very popular choice among many renters, as they are usually very fuel efficient and come with reasonable rental rates. The Vauxhall Corsa 1.2 is an example vehicle in this category. It can seat four people and has a manual transmission. Vehicles in these two categories don’t however have much room for luggage, only storing two items, and a larger vehicle may therefore be more suitable for longer road trips. They are also vehicles of a hatchback model.

There are two Compact vehicle categories at Alamo, one featuring vehicles with an automatic transmission, such as the Vauxhall Astra 1.6, and the other category featuring vehicles with a manual transmission, such as the Ford Focus Zetec 1.6. The automatic vehicles have many desirable amenities, for example, tilt steering wheels, central locking, driver and passenger air bags, electric front windows and folding rear seats. Both Compact categories contain vehicles which can seat up to five people, and store two luggage items.

Passengers who require a vehicle with plenty of space for luggage may be interested in the Wagon categories offered by Alamo, at Manchester Airport. Wagon, or estate type vehicles often have good interior spaces, and lots of extra room for luggage. The Compact Wagon category features vehicles such as the Vauxhall Astra Estate 1.7, with space for five pieces of luggage, while the Midsize Wagon category offers the Ford Mondeo Estate as an example vehicle, with space for up to six large luggage items. There is also the category of Premium Wagon available, with the Saab 9-5 Estate 2.0 comfortably seating five people and storing six pieces of luggage. Vehicles ideal for the average sized family can be hired from the categories of Midsize, Standard and Full-size. They may even be ideal for the business renter as well. Midsize vehicles include the Skoda Octavia 1.6, featuring anti-lock brakes, power steering, air bags and air conditioning, Standard vehicles include the Ford Mondeo 2.0 with power steering and ABS brakes, and the Full-size category contains the example vehicle of the Saab 9-5 2.0.
