Alamo at Queenstown Airport
Customer Ratings and Latest Reviews
Because we want to make sure each review listed here is left by a real customer, we don’t have an option to post a review here. Instead, we ask each and every customer to leave a review after they return their rental car. This way, you know that all reviews are authentic, verified, and trustworthy.
Cons: Booster seat wasn’t in good condition. The car we booked was meant to be a 4WD ford explorer, the car we got was a 4Wd pajero so not as gutsy
Pros: Good drop off process
Cons: Difficult to make contact with before the booking, American website wouldn't let me input my nz credit card, didn't get car that we had booked and then the car we were told we would get wasnt ready (no roof racks) and had to take a third car
Pros: Pleasant staff in Queenstown airport
Cons: I was told that the day prior the staff were trying to contact me as there was no large SUV available! Several returned with cracked windshield. It seems I was just lucky enough because another customer returned their car early so one became available.
Cons: The time it tool to set up the payments at the airport was too long
Cons: Car provided was not the car booked and was alot smaller than the car booked so we struggled to fit everything in. Car also was not powerful enough for the steep hills around queenstown.
Cons: I returned the keys to them, they came back 27 hr later, saying there was damage, a dent (it’s some paint scraped off), The damage happened after we returned the car, when I called them asking if they could check if another car had hit it, 5 min later he called back saying they didn’t find any other car entering the area, they charged me immediately for the initial $2500, and there is an outstanding $2700 left to pay. It was in their care so I’m not liable. I have filed a police report.
Pros: efficient and friendly
Cons: everything was great
Cons: I didn’t realise adding another driver would add $120 to the bill.
Pros: The price was fair for the vehicle provided.
Cons: The vehicle had pre existing damage to the right front guard that someone had tried to fix with sellotape. This damage makes you feel a little vulnerable that you maybe blamed for same. I took photos before we left Queenstown to show same but I believe it should have been explained to me before I went out to the car that it had minor damage. Otherwise a good experience and the car went well. Thank you.
Pros: The car
Cons: The agent, representative. Discover Cars agents (e.g. Alamo) at the airports are deceptive, obtuse, and unethical. If they are not your agents clearly state it and avoid them having the power to act in that role. Having access to all our details, upselling us to insurance, and acting as advisors for our rental car clearly makes them an agent! If they are your agents then stop them double-charging on insurance.
Pros: Fair price, helpful friendly staff, there were delays because of late drop offs but we appreciated the unasked for upgrade
Cons: As we are not NZ residents would have liked a comment about service desks being found in domestic part of airports.
Pros: Our flight was delayed so I called Alamo as soon as I found out as the desk closes at 5pm. The guy who answered very kindly advised he would wait for us so we could still get our booked vehicle
Pros: Super easy and friendly
Pros: Car condition, size, cleanliness and drop off was amazing.
Cons: Pick up process on desk was complicated, agent took no responsibility of online booking with discovercars and finding a car in big rental car park was night mare with no one to direct
Pros: Easy to book pick up and drop off
Cons: Cleanliness of the inside of the vehicle was not great.
Pros: Quick and easy pickup. Excellent value hire at the pricepoint.

Cons: It was hard to find the service desk. But if ypu are at the Queenstown airport, go to the Enterprise car rentals and pick up your Alamo rental car

Cons: All gud.....only pick up time.
Pros: Friendly & knowledgeable staff
Pros: It was the worst hire car I’ve ever hired.. so many scratches and it’s safety felt compromised.. awful!! I would not recommend you ever!!
Pros: Only disappointed was when paid deposit for the car was in URO $ Not NZ $ so deposit was twice as much as I expected
Pros: Efficient car pick up and drop back.
Cons: I incurred a flat tire on this rental, which I changed myself. The car company has charged me 500 dollars + GST, a total of 575 dollars for the flat tire, an unreasonable and arbitrary price at which, one can buy several brand new tires. It is reasonable to expect that I am charged for the actual cost of making good the flat tire backed by an invoice. The price seems very unfair to the consumer.
Pros: Service desk was very helpful with maps, etc and quick to pick up the car.
Cons: All service was great.
Cons: The return could be easier...
Pros: Friendly & helpful staff
