Thanks ....

I started to get really nervous b/c their rates are so good compared to others!!! I did hear they were being bought out again, but I don't think that's officially gone through yet. We had reserved a full-size a while ago- and it's a good thing b/c I just checked and they appear to be sold out of some vehicle types during the dates we'll be there!

This is for anyone that has used the KLM code - I did sign up for Flying Blue but didn't write the number down and used the discount code for my National Car rental in December. Am I going to have to have the number when I exit the parking garage?

Just used the KLM code 2 weeks ago for a rental at Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix and was NOT asked to provide proof of KLM membership.

Didn't you get an email from Flying Blue? Your number should be there.

Total price is $181.84 after taxes and fees through Avis. Is Avis an ok rental agency? I am super happy with this rate based on what I have been seeing even with coupons. My only worry is on Priceline a full-size car say's seats 5 with 4 pieces of luggage. On Avis it says seats 5 with 2 pieces.
You did fine! If you go to Avis' website you'll see that it says 2 large pieces and 2 small pieces of luggage fits in into a Full Size car.

Just wondering if you were successful in replacing your coupon with one from the Entertainment Book. I just received my book but unsure about a few things. The Entertainment coupons all ask you to mention a particular BCD code with a CPN #. Does it have to work this way or can I take say the CPN # from the $35 off a 10+ day rental and use it together with the X474200? If they ask for the coupon, isn't there the chance they could question this? Or is it just a try it and see what happens and the worst that can happen is that you don't get the $35 off? Also, can a coupon code that you come across later on be applied when you pick up the car or am I supposed go online to modify the reservation by adding it? Thanks.

I got such a great deal (50% off the rate I was quoted without the KLM code) I am somewhat nervous about my reservation too using the KLM code

I booked a rental with National after signing up with KLM/Royal Dutch and used their partner code. I received an email from their Flying Blue club with my "temporary" card. I printed it off and will carry it with our other important papers just in case

Check your email account you used to sign up for Flying Blue membership and see if they sent you an email that you could print off.

I am going to call Budget this week and see what I can find out. I will be sure to post back after I get the scoop!

I called Budget this morning. "Melody" told me that the coupon codes in the Entertainment book need to be used in conjunction with the BCD # listed on the coupon.

Of course, you never know if she's right . I might try again tomorrow to see if a different agent gives me the same answer.

On the initial quote page where it shows all of the vehicles available in little "boxes", if the coupon can be applied it will indicate that to the right and sideways within that little box.

And that's where the concern comes in.......the coupon says it can be applied when entering the Travelocity code + the Entertainment book coupon. The agent says no.

Just not wanting any hassle when the vehicle is turned back in.

I think as long as the system accepts the coupon you should be fine. I tried to apply the Costco coupon while using the DISBoards code and the system specifically rejected it and told me that I had to use the Costco code to use the coupon.

I booked a minivan a couple of months ago with a Budget code. Dates are 12/8-12/16. I was thrilled with the rate of $350 with budget. However, I checked rates on Orbitz today just to see what the range was. I was able to book a minivan with Dollar (no code) for $288! Woohoo!
