I rented a Ford Eco Sport (no spare, just a pump and goop to put in tire for small punctures). I did not take any of Alamo's insurance or road side assistance since we have our own car insurance and AAA Gold for roadside assistance. On the first day of our rental, I hit a pot hole and had an instant flat. I tried the pump and could hear air coming out as fast as I was putting it in. We called AAA. While I waited I called the rental office where I'd gotten the car. I explained the situation, the person on the phone asked their manager if this car really didn't have a spare and they confirmed it did not. I asked what I should do and told them AAA was on their way. I was told fixing it on my own would be financially beneficial. AAA towed me to a repair shop. They said the sidewall was ruined and that we needed a new tire. At this point I paid $231.67 for a new tire. When we returned the car there was no one at the rental counter to ask. Do I have any recourse with Alamo?
