Are u asking if you have to leave a deposit when you collect the car? I believe when lifting the car they ask for a credit card in the drivers name, i dont think they take any money from it though, just authorise it..

If you have a credit card let them take an imprint/swipe it.

Make sure you do not sign or initial for any extras or upgrades you do not need or want. You may have to pay for a tank of fuel unless that is included, or you can take it back full.

Check your credit card bill after you return to make sure they have not added any unrecognised charges including any toll fees you did not incur.

Alamo do not put any hold on your cc they just swipe it in case you use the Sunpass at the tolls or incur a fine of some sort

We paid for our fuel upfront so this will be taken from our cc when we return the car

I was asked to sign the agreement at the desk and I confirmed with the clerk that all I was being charged for was the agreed fuel

Always ask what you are signing for and then you are in no doubt

Lots of people on here think they are being scammed by the rental companies

I disagree - you just need to use your common sense and question anything you aren't happy with
