My Alamo rate didn't go down either, even after deleting cookies.

I just got $130 all taxes and fees included for pickup and drop off at the car care center from Alamo for 10/13- 10/17 only using by insider ID.... I'm going to play around more to see if I can get a better deal but I'm happy with that for now

Hey, wanted to let you know that my National rate dropped this morning by $21. You might want to check your dates since ours are similar for the start date. I only hope it continues to go down! Alamo was much higher this morning, which is strange since Alamo generally is lower than National, but we too are Executive Aisle members for many years now, so we love that perk. We have, however, already met our criteria for next year as we are at 41 rental days now without the October rental days, so if we have to use Alamo, we are still good for next year's status.

Thanks for the heads up but for some reason my rate didn't budge even a penny. I think having it that Friday night is throwing me off. The kicker is that we don't even get into MCO until 11pm so I don't even need it that long that day!

Sadly I think I do need this reservation to keep exec.

I looked into using my Amex points for the reservation. Unfortunately the code you have to use it puts me at a rate of double what I have. I wish the Amex points were just a gift card and could be used with any promotion!

If you don't get into MCO until 11p, do you really need the ressie for that day, or can you make the pickup after midnight? I know it takes us about an hour to get our luggage and get to the garage....you might even take a moment and get a cup of coffee along the way. I would never pay an extra day for an hour......good luck!

In the past, we have always rented from Alamo. This time, I was able to get a better deal with Dollar for the second week of October.

I've never used Dollar. Do they let you pick out your own car, like Alamo? Do they have the same kisok like Alamo (you don't have to wait in line at MCO, you can just walk up to the kisok and put your license and credit card into the machine and it prints out your ticket)?

Thanks for the info.

No kiosks & they don't let you pick your car. You have to go to the counter. I really wish all the rentals car companies would go the kiosk route, but then they wouldn't be able to try & force the upgrade upon you. I have rented with Dollar without issue (except a long wait in line) but I much prefer to rent from either Alamo, National, or Hertz for the convenience of not going to the counter. It's worth a few extra dollars to me, but not if it was a huge difference in price.

Seems like the rates are the best right before departure. Just about a month away and everything seems high.

Thanks for the info. I agree, I would rather use Alamo, but I was able to get a full size car for 10 days through Dollar for $194 and Alamo is $272.

I will keep watching the prices, but we leave in 12 days and I'm losing hope that the price will go down.

No kisok's as pp have said. You can join their Express Program for free. It will save all of your information so it is quicker at the counter. You will have to wait in line but the Express does have it's "own" line. It has been a few years since we have rented from Dollar but are also doing so for our upcoming trip. The price was better than anything else I could find.

The rates have been staying pretty high lately even up to the last minute. My trip is just a little over 2 weeks away and rates are still pretty high. Pretty much double of what I've paid last year.

Last minute specials have been posted and again MCO was not included. I suspect the Columbus Day weekend or high occupancy for this timeframe would be the reason. 16 days to hope for a lower rate. Actually everything is even higher now.
