Just reserved a minivan through Dollar from Oct 27-Nov 1 for $368.79 total. It feels really high but was the lowest rate we could find, the citydeals through Dollar quoted a higher rate ($600). We found that rate through carrentalsavers.com. I'm going to keep looking and hopefully we can get it down a bit. My parents and I (+ hubby + 2 car seats) can cram into my Pilot with the 3rd row but SUV's seem a bit more expensive than minivans- not to mention cargo space is so small in the SUV's. I'm afraid renting a minivan will make me want one

My parents rented a mini van on a trip when my son was 2, I came home and bought one LOL.

Good to know, thanks! I may give it a whirl at the last minute if the price doesn't break....

Has anyone checked the prices on alamo recently with the American Airlines coupon good for $35 dollars off. It says something about a blackout but it is supposed to be good until the end of the year. It is AD2359FDF.

It means that the time period you need to rent is deamed a blackout period by Alamo. Even though it expires at the end of the years doesn't prohibit Alamo from restricting the use of the code during certain times- usually around a holiday. Or they place restrictions on what locations the code can be used at.

Leaving in a couple hours for LAX, and my rental rates never dropped. In fact they're more now. I know it's a little different than MCO, but still, I'm surprised.

I just got back from a full week at DL, flew into John Wayne (SNA). We only paid $95 TOTAL for a week! Used Costco's website, this was with Budget, but they were all about the same. We took a compact (on purpose) because we intended to drive around a few days.

I pay for being picky honestly. I like being able to select my own car from the aisle, so I always use Alamo. This go around I found the cheapest rate to be with National. I needed an SUV for us girls and all our luggage, which I got for around $300 total for the week. We're also driving to Las Vegas, so we wanted something a little bigger for the long drive. I have a feeling that's gonna bite me in the butt when I started putting gas in it.

Today is Tuesday and the day that National and Alamo releases their "last minute" specials. I'm not optimistic, but always hopefully. I still have next Tuesday (after the holiday weekend) too.

So I might have deleted my great Alamo rate email. I cannot find it no matter how hard I search my inbox. Has anyone found a way to pull up your Alamo reservation without a confirmation number? I am kicking myself as it was $191 and today it is $244. So I made a back up reservation at the $244 just in case... Any ideas? I must have deleted the email.

Why don't you try calling them? They should be able to pull it up using your name/dates/location.

I have changed my reservation so many times my head is starting to spin! This morning I booked a compact through Hertz for 10/13-17 for $155.89. I used the Entertainment book CDP & the weekend code XCT1. Price was $14.24 for the weekend days but then jumped to $42.74 for the week days. Still a little more then I was hoping to spend but I have a feeling it might be the best I do.
