Sept 2012 car rental......

Looking for car rental code good for trip to Disney ( Sept 26th - Oct 3rd ). Wonder when they will come out? What happens with the code if my rental starts in one month and ends in another? Is it good for the whole time as long as the first day starts within the code dates? Thanks for the info . AOA resort here we come!!!

Try the visa code through Mousesavers for Alamo. I got 25% off plus an additional 30.00. Ended up with a Grand Cherokee for 266 total. Rented from the Disney World Car care Center. Will ride ME in and out. That way we avoid paying oll the tolls on the way to/from airport too.

We are going 9/13-9/18 and definitely need a minivan - there are 6 of us. If it comes down to priceline we will do that, or split the two families and get 2 economy cars. I think a mini-van will be $$$$$$

Just FYI, but the tolls from the airport to WDW on 417 (imho easiest route) are only $2.50 each way....so to save $5 it may not be worth it to use ME and the car care center. Usually it is cheaper to rent from MCO plus you will have the time savings.

I have been renting 2-3x year in WDW for years now and the rates usually drop big time about 1 month out. I am trying to find a decent "back up" ressie now, but not too worried yet.

Couldn't agree more.. plus the lines at CCC are long and having to wait for their shuttle to pick you up to go get your car, is time you could be spending in the parks.. ohhhhh and DME picks you up VERY early for your flights..having a car to zip you to the airport is way more relaxing IMHO

Hi,
My alamo car for sept 7-16 dropped today from $208 down to $174. This is for economy class with the AD2359fdf coupon and insiders number. As I don't have a costco membership this is the lowest right now for me.

So check your rates!!

We are the 7-18th

Just shaved another $6 off my Alamo Standard rental.... It's the 3rd or 4th time I've rebooked (modified) just a few bucks lower, but it's starting to add up!

What is Alamo "insider #"?

What is the "Insider #" for Alamo car rentals. Is it something I have to sign up for on the Alamo website?

I just got an SUV through Dollar for dates Sept 29 -Oct 9 (10 nights) for $253! I went through rental cars dot com and used the Orlando magic card code! This is BY FAR the cheapest we have seen!!! Went through the dollar rental site with the confirmation code to confirm and all is good!!!
