We'll be going to Houston/Galveston for 4 days later this month. Not only can I get a better deal with my Costco code, I can also get a better price with Alamo using a Costco code with their Happy Birthday coupon. I guess this is better than rack rate.
The big deal is for people like me that can't get a minivan cheaper than using this code. If you can find somewhere where I can get a minivan 12/8-12/14 I'll be glad to look at your option. Right now with the code and my coupon through BJ's my rate is $269.

Aahhh.... I see. We have a minivan at home but get by with a full size for a rental. That is a good minivan rate.

Hi Melissa - we were in the same boat as you are. I joined Costco for $55 and their rates were way cheaper - even counting in the extra $55!
Right after I purchased the Costco membership, the rates thru Alamo Insider's Club were within $20 of Costco's! Oh well - live & learn....
I did notice that the rates can change dramatically even within the same day!
Good luck to you!

I wish we could go with a full size but with 5 of us including a car seat I don't see that happening. Sure would save us some money though!

Has anyone used this code for locations other than Orlando? We got a great rate in Miami for two nights after a cruise in February.

Just returned from an awesome trip...had credit card issues with National (had a great price booked for some time) and ended up canceling altogether. That left us without a minivan rental two days before we left. Rates I was checking were all over the place, with $55-$60 per day being the best . Decided to try Priceline's Name Your Own Price option and got greedy and put in bid of $30 per day. Instantly, it was accepted and ended up with a trouble free rental with Budget. No codes or coupons used...

We have used this code a couple of times in Ohio with no problems. I just used it to book a van for my boss in Tampa. Hopefully, he will not have any issues either.

I actually used it to book a rental this upcoming summer for my family also.

Can anyone give me the costco coupon code? When I put the code MCNZ028 that I got from my Costco website along with the BCD X474200 there's no difference than just with that BCD number!

Budget coupons are not subtracted from the total until after you return the car. Just be sure that the coupon code is listed on your reservation confirmation.

Thanks for the reply! Another question-on the reservation page it requires flight # and airline but we are getting a ride from a family member from Port Canaveral (DCL) to the airport to pick up our vehicle so we aren't flying in that day!
One more question-how strict are they for picking up your car at the time you reserved for. What if we arrive to pick the car up a hour or two earlier?

I don't think the website will let you skip the flight info, so just put in something.
I have never had a problem if the pickup time is off a little. Be careful that you don't go overtime when you return it or you will be charged another day. So if you pick up at noon you need to return by noon.
