I checked Alamo using noon pick up and noon return. Using the entertainment code and a free day coupon, a compact is $367.

Let me know your specifics and I can get you a better answer. Or if you'd like me to check another company.
Thank you for doing this for me. That's still a ton of money. We're now considering skipping the rental and riding Disney's Magical Express.

Update, I just checked minutes ago and now my 10 day rental at Alamo (standard) is down to $186.60 total. (National is still stuck in the $500s)

What is the DVC code?? We are DVC but I wasn't aware of any discounts.
Thanks!

What is that $30 coupon from? I used it and it took it but I want to make sure I'm entitled to it.

Thanks!

Looks like it's a visa coupon. (I googled it and saw it mentioned in several places).

I still have my fullsize that I managed to snag from Alamo for 8 days under $200 after all fee's. Looking at all of these rates I guess I should consider myself darn lucky. I haven't seen anything come close to it checking their rates ever since then. This is Jan 26 - Feb 4th.

Anyone who has a Costco membership should check Alamo prices using the costco code. With the costco code (but through the Alamo website not throough the Costco site) and the $30 coupon I got a a premium car from Jan 19 7pm- Jan 26th 10PM for $183.85 including taxes! Same dates for a minivan was $320 (also pretty good I think).

Looks like insiders code was about the same pricing as the Costco code for a premium, not sure what it is about the premiums that makes them want to rent them so cheap!

I just plugged in Noon to Noon from Jan 19 -23rd on the costco site and got $100 for a compact to $120 for a standard (fullsize at MCO since no standrad aisle) inc taxes.

Yes. Rates have so far been stupidly high over that period. Paying that for a minivan is pretty good anytime!

On the costco site when you do a quote it fills in the codes for you, you have to look at the detailed info page and it gives the code # and what that code gets you. If you can't find it PM me and I'll send it to you, they do actually ask for Costco proof though so only bother if you are a member.

My rates for 01/04/12-01/13/12 just went down this morning by $40 using the Disney AP discount code 860292, $205 for a compact. Alamo is finally moving in the right direction!
