We're travelling end of January as well for 10 days - hoping to get the rental for about $150 or less.

Alamo

(Car Care Center Jan/04 to Jan/13)
Base Rate - Standard SUV (USD) *Jeep Grand Cherokee
(1) Time & Distance ($277.00/Week) $277.00
(2) Extra - Time & Distance ($39.57/Day) $79.14
Contract I.D. Alamo Insiders Members

I think that even the week charge is too high - is it safe to wait until January to make a car reservation?

I would still make a reservation... I always have a reservation. The great thing about car rentals is you can make one, then cancel it if a lower price becomes available. I started at $313 and I am down to $205, I am betting it will hit $150 by the time our trip rolls around (same dates as yours). Now thats for a compact, but I think the same rules apply for a larger vehicle too.

Have you used the Visa $30 off coupon code? AD2338FDF?

Generally prices drop at 21 days, and continue to drop until 1-2 days before the trip. I have been watching the December thread and that seems to be the common consensus this year too.

Thank you, thank you, thank you my fellow Disers!!! Just checked for our dates and finally came up with something I can live with: $222 for 7 days versus the +$400 it was just two days ago. Will continue to check and be happy if it goes down, but will not complain. I can live with this!

Well I have gone from over $700 to $314 for a minivan with Alamo and the Costco codes

Our info:

1/15 we get in at Midnight so it will be 1230am rental on 1/16 and return the car on 1/23 at 2pm

I booked it but I am hoping I can get it much cheaper with Priceline I have never paid over $250 and don't plan to this time either!

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)
I got a standard for $186 total for 10 days. Now the same rental is coming in $100 more than what I booked last week. Normally the rates start going down, so was surprised to see them head back up. January is normally my lowest rental of the year, so not too worried (yet). I suspect we won't see too many drops until the beginning of the year. I've still got my fingers crossed for National. I prefer my executive aisle status, and need that rental to get to my annual 40 rental days per year to maintain my executive status. But with a rate of $186 with Alamo vs $500+ with National, it's a nobrainer which one I'm taking. I'm still about 5 weeks away.

I am having trouble booking on the new Alamo website. I can get all the way till the last confirmation page, then I get an error message:


Supplied coupon cannot be validated by the pricing service.

I tried several current coupons, is anyone else having this trouble.

I am having the same problem. Once I enter a coupon, it does not recognize it. When I take it out, the price is still the same, so I dont know if it ever took the discount for the coupon.

Same here. How are you getting the Insiders rate? I log in with my Insiders user name and password and tried to get a minivan quote and the page eternally searches.
Where do you enter the 7015135 Insiders code? I tried where it says enter discount code and it won't accept it. I'm sure I'm doing something wrong that's obvious to others but not me right now. Is the discount code area where I enter the coupon code? Do I have to enter the Insiders code or just by logging into my Insiders account do I get the Insiders rate?

I logged into my Insiders account and used the $30 VISA code AD2338FDF (is this an ecoupon or do I need to print it out?)

I got a rate (including taxes and fees) of $509.41 for a minivan rental, pickup and drop off at Orlando International airport. 01/04/13-01/14/13

Is this higher than what the rest of you have been finding for a minivan in early January?

Thanks to everyone for their help!

Don't know if you needed an SUV or not, but Dollar has Premium for that time period using code 76892 for $291-tax included.

Rentals

Be careful with some of the rates with even the major car rentals. Some you have to pay extra, even if it is a spouse. I've seen up to $10.00 per day with Fox and Dollar. I'm sure that there are others.

Woo-hoo!! Just got our reservation down to $202 for January 25 (7pm) to February 3 (2 pm) for a standard (will choose from full size aisle) with Alamo!
I used the Visa $30 off code and the insiders rate. I'm THRILLED will this price. It's less than I've ever paid for this long of a rental. Any more of a discount would just be icing on the cake!
