Nope, that's not the case. The code listed on the first page is no longer working as well as it was. I have a reservation for December 22-29 for $196 and it is now coming up at $340 for the same dates. It *still* includes fees, insurance and most taxes.

As I said: MOST expire in June, not all, MOST.

This site is a good source and you can try mousesavers.com Also, join the Insiders at Alamo and Emerald Club at National. Both are free to join and they often email information about discounts with coupon codes for you to use.

Definitely keep on checking these boards, the members here are very good about posting money saving coupons and codes.

Whoops! I thought we were talking about the NATIONAL code on the front page. Now I see you and cantwaitvaca09 are talking about an ALAMO code.

It should be noted that the National code on the front page is no longer giving great rates. Which is a real bummer for me since I have a reservation for MCO and I just booked airfare into TPA and was going to change my reservation to TPA and it's $150 per week more.

I do have a Midsize SUV booked with this National code from page 1 for $245
But I have been reading that some people got even a better rate, so I am keeping my eyes open.

Is there a September code watch thread? That would be the best place to look for codes & coupons that will work for your dates.

Must have been pixie dust indeed. Town and Country mini vans are 7 passenger, not 8 (2 in front, 2 in the middle and 3 in the third row). Who directed you to the Mini van rather than the mid size lane/area?

If you're a member of the Emerald Club and your reservation says Emerald Aisle or Emerald Reserve, you pick whatever car you want that's sitting in those respective aisles. I always manage to get an SUV, even when I don't want one, when I reserve a midsize in Orlando.

How do you get Emerald Reserve?
I have a midsize SUV with the code from the first page in September, but a full size would be better

Lots of thanks to the OP and the follow up posters on this code. Just booked an 8 day midsize over thanksgiving for $255. Thats less than $32/day all in, before any other coupons that may eventually come through for that time period.

Also just realized that National will upgrade your Emerald status based on your standing with Hertz or Avis. I am a Hertz #1 Club Gold Presidents Circle member, so I will be upgraded to an Executive Elite at National which guarantees a minimum full size availability. Of course the family is already hoping for a convertible . Similar Hertz rental was going to be at least $200 more for me even with my status and significant company discount.
