Getting out to enjoy the last of the summer sunshine is even more affordable with Alamo Rent A Car’s free upgrade offer on UK rentals. For instance, customers booking an intermediate vehicle, typically a Vectra or Mondeo on will only pay for a compact, which is the class below.

Whether it’s keeping the kids entertained this half term, a weekend away to look for signs of autumn or a chic city break for a spot of shopping for a winter wardrobe, booking a car from Alamo means more room for your money. Parents with kids at university will be glad of the extra room in an Alamo car when ferrying their stuff to and from student digs this term.

Tom Middleditch, Alamo Marketing Manager says, “The freedom and convenience of car rental makes getting away from it all a question of just getting behind the wheel and setting off. With family finances under pressure, our free upgrade deal gives customers even better value on Alamo’s fully inclusive rates, helping them to make the most of those UK breaks.”

Alamo’s free upgrade offer is valid for bookings on Economy, Compact and Intermediate cars for rentals in the UK. Customers can simply call 0870 191 6992 or log on to to make a reservation.
