The only movement I am seeing in prices for my dates (Oct 12 -22) are increases. Dollar, Budget and Alamo are all up and National remains the same. I'll keep checking but at this point I'm not too optimistic.

I see an intermediate SUV for $208 inc taxes after e-coupon is applied when return vehicle. Wendie code D454300 and e-coupon MUGZ029 for $30 off. Through Costco I see a full size for $272. Both rates are with Budget.

As we get closer to Columbus Day weekend, we will see less deals. I'm hoping when the "last minute" deals come out after that weekend they will be better. Like you, I'm leaving on the Oct. 12th. This is my 4th trip this year and rental car rates have stayed pretty high and the only drops I've seen are last minute, which means just days prior to leaving. I watch several times a day and will post if I see any positive movement. Good luck!

Thanks! Good luck to you too!

I do have a rate of $285 with National which includes all the taxes & coverages thanks to the KLM code. I do still have a reservation with Dollar that is about $60 less. Since I am Exec with National and it has all the coverages so I think it is worth it for the Aisle access and coverage to pay the extra $60 to stick with National.

Please share you dates and codes. I'm not finding any major change for 10/13-10/21.

Yes, please share your codes! I used the vroom vroom code (299851) & a $20 off Entertainment coupon. It save me $10. My dates are 10/13-17. Still a little leery of that vroom vroom code. I may plug in another code as a back-up.

The codes I used are ID 7014136 and cpn code ad2338fdf. My dates are Oct 18th-26th. Someone suggested on here to clear your cookies on your computer and as soon as I did this the rates went way down.. Worth a try and thanks to the person who suggested it

What am I doing wrong? I cleared my cookies and used the same codes (plus my Alamo Insider's number) and the price went up to $490.00 using those codes. My dates are Oct 27th-Nov 4th.

I'm not having any luck either. Cleared cookies on 2 different browsers and used the coupon codes for an Oct 17-23 rental and the prices didn't change at all for any of the categories.

So weird, I just went and plugged my codes in again and it is still $144. The only thing that could be the reason is that I am picking up in Tampa and dropping off in MCO?? You would think that would make it higher though?? Hope your rates drop soon

The pickup and drop off makes all the difference. I was able to find this good rate copying this itinerary, but rates picking up and returning to MCO remain high.

Thanks so much! Now my question is this, I have a midsize SUV and a full size reservation. What happens if I don't cancel one of them until the day of? I have a code I'm using, similar to the Vroom code I think, where I'm not sure where it came from. I called and asked Alamo, and she told me that she didn't know what it was for, and that it was good rate, to go ahead and use it. I just hate to get up to the counter and have someone else tell me otherwise, and I'll be out of luck-hence the second reservation. Anyone ever done anything like that? I've never rented a car before, and I'm paranoid the code I have will cause some sort of problem for me. TIA!
