The best I've been able to get from Alamo at TPA is $201 for 10/3-10/7 for a compact (using Visa ID and coupon code). Prices have been steady for months now. I really hope they start dropping.

This is more than I paid in May when I was there for 8 nights and had a Full Size car from Alamo at MCO. It's craziness!!

With Dollar a 4 day rental for a compact is $168 inc taxes. Just click on city specials. You might want to try bidding on priceline for a deal on a 4 day rental.

Soon is when the rates should be coming down and better deals to be had. Keep your fingers crossed. I agree that rates seem very high, more than I have paid in the past. Dollar does seem to be running some good deals lately. We have used them in the past with no problems.

I too have a 4 day rental for mid October and last week for about 24 hours Dollar had awesome rates going. Initally I got a compact for the 4 days for $90 with taxes and fees. Then less than 12 hours later I was able to get a mid size for $85 with taxes and fees. By the afternoon the rates had gone up past the original price I had reserved the compact for, which I think was $137 with taxes and fees. Rates change constantly I would check as often as you can.

If you book through budget with BCD D454300 and coupon MUGZ029, I show $172 and change. And you get $30 off that price at the time of return. Final cost around $140-$142.

ETA - Looks like you have to book for 5 days instead of 4 to get that price

I've noticed the rates at Alamo have gone up the past few days.

I have a full size rental booked for 9/28-10/9 using insider's code and BJ's $40 off 10 day rental coupon for $200. That is about $50-60 more than I usually pay for that time table.

I checked alamo today and they are up to $275. Wonder if they are increasing their rates before they bring them back down. Guess I will wait and see.

The rates at Alamo and Enterprise have been going up this week. I've got a rate I can live with for ten days, as I was able to jump when Costco lowered their rates last week. So anything else will be pure extra spending money

There's no standard-size car aisle, right?

National has a coupon on their website (listed under Specials) for a “Free car-class upgrade”. It states that it is available for a reservation of a Compact through Standard-size car and valid for rentals through October 31, 2012.

A quote for a midsize – which is the Emerald Aisle – using the coupon...upgrades me to a standard-size car and says pickup is the “Aisle”. There isn't an aisle especially for standard-sized cars, right?

A quote for a compact - the coupon upgrades me to a midsize (which is usually Emerald Aisle) and says pickup is the airport. Doesn't mention the aisle or counter (?)

BTW – My current EA reservation is for Oct 8-Oct 13, using my work’s Contract ID = $232.71 (Using the coupon on a midsize upgraded to a standard would be the same; using the coupon on a compact upgraded to a midsize would be $221)

I agree, crazy high rates. But I still have hope it'll change.

Just stumbled upon a great deal at Budget
https://www.budget.com/budgetWeb/htm...wendie_08_2012

$17 per day/$119 per week for economy/compact and $22 per day/$139 per week for SUV!

With taxes and fees minus a coupon from BJs I'll be paying $225 for a week for an SUV. Not bad!

I seen this a couple of weeks ago and tried to use it, but mine is a 4 day rental starting on Wednesday night. The rental has to start on a Thursday (end on Monday) for the $17 weekend compact rate to apply! A good deal for sure though.

That's odd. I was able to use it for a Saturday-Saturday Rental.

That's what I am hoping. I feel like looking for a decent deal is a part time job at this point. LOL

I tried this, but it doesn't work for my dates. I've used Budget before and they were OK, not my favorite, but the price was right. Not sure why my dates would not work. (Oct. 12 @ 3P to Oct. 27 @ 3P) Got 4 weeks and right now I'm using the Vroom code with Alamo (299851), hoping to use National as they are my favorite! I check daily several times. I saw some decent rates for September, so hoping we get some better deals soon.
