January 2013 car rental

Is there a forum yet for January? I did a search and it didn't pull anything up so if not I will start.

I checked a minivan for 9 days and got a price of nearly $700

I know they will be lower but I don't know when, so I need to just keep checking for lower prices.

Using the KLM contract code for National I priced a Corolla, 5 days, for about $188.

Last year I went in January, and the good rates didn't come out until late--I modified my reservation in December and got a compact car for 5 days from Alamo for $69--tax included.

Was checking earlier today and even Costco code didn't cause any price drop. Just need to be patient (not my strong suit!)

A couple of months ago I booked a minivan for 10 days for $472 inclusive. I booked with Budget using BCD x474200 (travelocity code). We need room for 6, so I have to rent a minivan. Last year I booked a full size (there were 4 of us last trip) with Alamo for $200 for 10 days and we ended up finding a minivan on the aisle. I booked at that rate the night before our trip, so I will definitely be watching rates right up until the very end.

How are you guys finding these codes? Airfare for our flights keep on rising, so we are looking at back up plans now

Mousesavers.com is a great place to find car rental codes. It still is early for January, though.

Count me in as another one waiting. We are going 1/1 - 1/7 and the kids are each taking a friend so we will need a van or SUV this year.

Got Minivan thru Alamo for 1/12 to 1/19 for $292.53 total using Entertainment book $25 off weekly rental and Alamo insiders 10% off. Not horrible but I'm hoping to get it even cheaper as we get closer.

I was able to get a minivan for 1/1 - 1/7 at Budget for $302 (including all taxes).

I used the travelocity code X474200. I did log in with our fastbreak # first.

I have a couple of car coupons at home that came out of a school coupon book fundraiser. I will see if there is anything to bring it down a little more.

Unfortunately, my coupon had a last pick up date of 12/31/12 and we arrive 1/1/13.

Oh well, I'll keep looking for coupons that work.

We will also be heading to the world in January. We usually rent from Alamo to hoping they have good rates. I have a car rented for the beginning of Dec and not really happy with the rate at the moment.
