Not sure how we got so lucky. We reserved a mid size car with Alamo for 8 days and paid $155. When we picked out our car last Wed at 11:00 p.m. we found 2 minivans in the aisle. Love having the extra space.

Just checked my confirmation. It says US Air fall promo and then has an American Airlines valley discount on it.

Are both of those e-coupons? And if so, can I do online checkin?

Not knowing what you actually inserted in the boxes, it is impossible to know how to answer this question. I can say IF you used a coupon code in the coupon box, then you cannot check in online. You can use the counter or the kiosks (they are located in front of the counter) in the main terminal.

Dollar is $359 inc taxes if you click on city specials. If you need the additional driver then stick with Alamo.

Try this one, instead:

Your Insider ID #

Coupon Code = AD2359FDF (Which turns out to be this internet coupon, for those worried about a physical coupon https://www.alamo.com/index.do?actio...pecials-35-off )

I dropped mine $6 more dollars, and don't have to worry about the Costco Card.

So, this is how I booked my car for our trip. It's an e-coupon (I believe) so I don't have a physical coupon to present. I have never rented a car in my life and I'm hoping I haven't screwed up. Do I need to checkin at the counter or can I do the online checkin?

Yes it is an e-coupon and you cannot check in online. You will need to use the counter or kiosk. Also, I am curious about the code you used. If you used 7015135, that is the Insider's Code and you cannot use that one unless you are an insider's member. You said AA code and that is not it.


Online Check-Insm is not available with reservations that contain the following:

•Reservation is more than 30 days in duration.
•Reservation is "On Request".
•Additional equipment such as child seat/toddler seat/infant seat or ski racks, etc. Rentals requiring additional
equipment must go to the rental counter.
•Coupon (including ecoupons) used with reservation.•Voucher used with reservation.
•Applicant Business Account Number used with reservation.
•Central Bill Number used with reservation.

I just used these codes to book from Alamo at MCO from 9/29- 10/5 for $161. thanks
I do hope this drops a little before we leave. I was hoping to rent for about $130... Standard car

The e-mail confirmation didn't say anything about an Insider's club.

It has my base rate then
Contract ID US Air Fall promo

Subtotal

Discounts:
Discount
American Airlines Valley Offer

Taxes and misc.
And then my total

I'm so confused. Maybe I should just keep my Costco reservation and not worry about this e-coupon. Can online checkin be done with a Costco reservation?

I second this. We are going Sept. 17-24 and flying into SFB. I had Alamo reserved with the Costco id and the coupon for $30 off. My cost for a compact was $275.89 including taxes!

I checked Hotwire and got a quote for $151.31 for a full-size. Went with it and got Hertz.

I've used Hotwire before, had no problems.

Would suggest you look to see what's out there.

Has anyone seen much movement with National? We currently have a reservation 9/27-10/7 and ours came down a little this week, but not a whole lot, we are at $284 for a midsize with the KLM contract id. This is significantly higher than we have paid in the past. Could this be coming down further?

I've seen it come down more than that, but honestly, you can really never tell.
