Then this morning I received an email stating that we would NOT be covered due to Alamo changing their policy in Jan and we didn't book our car until March. I have sent an email stating how dissatisfied we are at this point and I am waiting for a response.

Looks like we are going to have to use either our own insurance (a rider possibly) or my DH's MasterCard may have supplemental insurance available. DH is so adamantly against using our own personal car insurance because apparently here in Ontario we have the highest insurance premiums in North America and he is afraid that if something happens it will only get more expensive. I understand his concern, I don't totally agree with him, but all this means is that I am on the lookout for a cheap rental and possibly will end up paying for more insurance to supplement.

So frustrated!!
You need an SEF27 Endorsement on your own car insurance in order to use that. Some Visa and Mastercards cover the collision and comprehensive but not the 3rd Party Liability. A couple years ago I backed into another vehicle with my rental car. The Visa collision insurance covered our rental and I had taken out National's Supplimental Liability and that paid for the other vehicle.
I tend to agree with your husband about using your own insurance but I guess that's what we're doing this time.
We had used uscarhire a few years ago with all the insurances included and that was the best stress free rental that we've had.

I am waiting to find out from our insurance what it will cost for that extra rider, and yes, our MC doesn't include 3rd party liability. It's interesting to hear your experience, thanks for sharing that. I will tell DH about using the MC and then supplementing with the car rental liability.

I am bummed about the change in policy, it really did come with peace of mind. I am still waiting to hear back on our situation, I don't expect anything, but I am giving them the chance to help us if they can.

Thanks again for the info!

I have Oct 12 - 22 reserved with National for a total of $284 for a midsize (I'm Emerald Exec level so want to stay with midsize to use the exec aisle). This is the best I can do with them so far using the KLM code and $30 BJ's coupon. I would love to get it below $250 but I'm not holding my breath!

Columbus Day seems to be driving rental prices higher this year.

Thanks for the heads up on the 'City Specials' at Dollar. For October 7 - 14, I found $247.44 for full size and $372.80 for minivan. Snagged it and will keep looking. Thanks again!

The SEF27 only costs $25 or $30 . My son just added it to his policy.

Looking for Alamo as well. Hope the prices get lower as we get closer to the date, leaving late Oct.

we travel this time frame and both airfare and rental cars take a bump, as with most holidays to be expected. We switched things around a few years ago and now start our trips two saturdays prior to Columbus day and get a bit of a break in price.

Alamo van and suv prices are down a little tonight, not as far as I'd like to see them for the end of Oct but they are cheaper than the cars right now.
First res. made tonight, I wonder how many times I'll change it before we go .

Hi there! Not sure if this is the right place to ask or not, but we have relatives that will be joining us in October at WDW. They want to rent a car but have no major credit card other than their bank debit card. How can they go about renting a car without having to tie up their bank account (don't the rental companies charge debit cards for a couple of weeks so you don't have access to your own funds until they release it back?) I've always had a major credit card, so this issue is all new to me!

For anyone using the Dollar city deal code - my rate went down for 10/22-10/27 and I saved about $20. It's down to $189. Fingers crossed it continues to drop - I really hate to pay that much, but my DH is the impatient type and it's easier to have a car than wait for all the busses.(except to MK)

Here's a link to a thread on the Canadian boards about using your own car insurance:

Tampa, great price!

Prices in Tampa have really dropped the last couple of days. Just booked a minivan from Enterprise for $309 total for 8 days, October 19-27th. This is especially great because Enterprise doesn't charge for an additional driver if it is a spouse.

Very happy with this rate!
