Are you sure the $288 includes all taxes and fees on the Orbitz site? If you go to Dollar and book directly (click on city specials rate) the base rate is $288 + taxes and fees = $379. Also Dollar charges $10/day extra for additional driver.

Yes. Even though I found it on Orbitz, I booked directly with Dollar so I could cancel easily. 5:00 p.m. on 12/8-5 p.m. on 12/16 was $288 with fees included ($217 before fees).

Ohhh....sorry - I did leave out one important detail....just wasn't thinking. I'm flying into JAX instead of MCO as the fares were about 1/3 of the price on Southwest from Nashville.

Alamo has a new nationwide Contract Id: CARSLAND Coupled with the free day e-coupon they currently have on their website [AFA4623ANZ] reduced my rate a little for the first week of December. Midsize SUV @ $198 for a 7 day rental - even though this is the most I have ever paid for a rental car in Orlando. I like a decent size vehicle so I cancelled my reservation with Dollar for a mid-size @ $152. and Budget reviews had me a little concerned, so I cancelled my reservation with them for a mid-size SUV @ $177. I would be very displeased to be put in a hatchback vehicle as a 'similar'.

Bid on Priceline today for a mini-van. Got $24/day (first tried $20 which was declined..I should've tried $22!).

Final total is $290.60. I'm pleased with this rate as the lowest I've gotten the minivan for my dates is $400.

Alamo midsize SUV finally dropped for me. 11/30 to 12/8 $218 using Southwest code 7015765 and $30 coupon AD2335FDC.

Pays to keep looking right to the very end. Saved $40 over National. Same as Budget, but love the Alamo kiosk.

Alamo's rates for the first week in Dec took a HUGE dive today! Just this morning I was getting $284 for 12/3 to 12/10, but just now booked it for $129 out the door! This is using Costco member code and e-coupon for $30 off, midsize car. YAY!!

Must be related to the Costco member code - which I am not eligible for. My rates for 12/1 - 12/8 are alot higher than that.

Hmmm... just an hour later and they are back up. This is the point where you need to check multiple times a day, looks like they are going to fluctuate. Good luck.

I agree! Alamo's pricing has been all over the place. Last night I found a decent rate, went back to add my flight information and it had already jumped $60. I could never replicate the original price.

I'm also Dec 8-15 and I was just losing hope of any good Alamo deals. Based on the Dec 1-8 people, it sounds like there is still hope! Whoohoo!

You don't mention what type of vehicle you are looking for but using Wendie Code D454300 and E-Coupon MUPZ044 for $40 off the total after e-coupon is applied when return vehicle (compact) is $138.
