Can anyone help. I may be looking in the wrong place, but after logging in to Alamo Insiders, I see all car classes listed to choose from except a minivan. Has anyone else seen this?

Payless Car Rental

I just got an amazing rate from Payless Car Rental. It's almost too good. Does anyone have any experiences with Payless, good or bad? Is there a reason I shouldn't stick with this reservation and consider myself lucky?
Thanks!

You will have to take a shuttle from the airport to their location ... not too far and they seem to have quite a few. They will try to up sell you ... just keep saying no. I've used them before ... not my favorite but if the rate is good enough I'll use them again.

I think that even the week charge is too high - is it safe to wait until January to make a car reservation?
Prices just got a little more down... and I took the last day off...

My husband has convinced me I really should try for a car from Alamo or National. I have an offsite car reserved but he want me to try for an old faithful.

My trip dates are January 23- 29. I fly in and out of TPA (tampa) My time I need the car for starts and ends at noon.

I have Visa, I belong to southwest, BJ's, I"m an Alamo insider and belong to National Emerald club. The cheapest I can find is over $300.00.

I usually have GREAT luck searching on my own. Any advice?

Thanks a million!

For those who may still be struggling with price, give a look at Hotwire.

As of today, the minival for 1/1 - 1/7 was only $332.00 after all fees on Hotwire.

It doesn't beat my $302, but it is much better than it had been.

As a start, try Dollar with the corp code of oi1054. You can get something under $250. I know it's not Alamo/National, but at least it's on site.

I'm leaving on 1/3. I have Premium from Dollar (Crown Vic) for $30 a day and I think I'm done. I'm worn out scouring the sites and not seeing any reductions even this close to my dates. I'm surprised because Alamo is the usually best deal out there (of the big name companies). They just aren't in the ballpark this time which is a drag becuase I love being able to pick my own vehicle.

I know how it feels to be done, BUT for my trip last month, Alamo didn't drop within reason until the 4 days before my trip! I think I got the lowest rate two days before-125 for a full size for a week all in. Ended up with a minivan because there were no full size cars when I got there.

I know how you feel. My wife has imploring me to stop looking for our 1/4-16 rental. However Alamo did come down again today. $234 all in for a full size using the insiders code and the Visa $30 coupon (AD2338FDF).

Just checked Dollar for my dates (1/10-1/15)--the daily search-- and noticed that Premium and MidSize SUV are at decent rates again--they come and go. Premium was $134 + tax for a week.
