Ya I see it would be $329 including coupon which is deducted when you return minivan versus $272. Looks like you are paying $57 for the additional 3hrs.

I'm going to see if I can get Budget or Enterprise to price match Dollar.....

Dollar is $193 vs Budget $359.

I'd really prefer not going with Dollar.....I don't want any surprise charges on my card or them saying there are damages on the car when I return it.

I don't think Dollar is the only car rental company that adds damages after a rental. From what I read in the travel section of the sunday paper it seems there are stories from all companies having done this. I guess our only protection is to check the car thoroughly before you leave the lot, and have them mark any damage, even the smallest spot you see. Of course, I say this now, but will probably forget to do so next week in my excitement to get to the hotel!! Ten more days...can't wait!

I still think they might come down again this week but it will be hit or miss, late night and early morning .. check the websites then
I thought that code was for Alamo?

We have rented from Dollar for many years, multiple times a year, and have never had that happen.

Just got an Insider's email from Alamo for a free double upgrade. Went from a compact (Nissan Versa) to a standard (Ford Fusion), 9 days for $150.04 total.

Some of you guys with the Costco/American Airlines codes....

Try this one, instead:

Your Insider ID #

ID/Corp ID = (blank! It should fill it out with 7015135)

Coupon Code = AD2359FDF (Which turns out to be this internet coupon, for those worried about a physical coupon https://www.alamo.com/index.do?actio...pecials-35-off )

I dropped mine $6 more dollars, and don't have to worry about the Costco Card.

I tried this and it gave me the warning that a physical coupon might be required. Makes me a little nervous to book it. But it's $20+ cheaper than Costco.

In July, I got a Visa discount from Alamo. I called because I couldn't find anything online. It was $267 (all fees) for 15 days. I'm picking up at MCO and dropping off in Tampa. While on the phone, I couldn't get my daughter on as a second driver with that discount, even though both of have an Insiders card. She told me on the phone, that they did have an discount for the Alamo insiders. It ended up to be $286.47 (all fees) with two drivers included. This is for an economy car. I don't know the code because I did all booking on the phone.

There's any way to stop that from happening, If your rental has a ding/scratch on it make sure note it on your rental paperwork and take a picture of it with your camera or cellphone. You can prove it was already there when you got the vehicle..

Yes, we always make note of scratches, etc. on the paperwork even though staff will usually say that there is no need to. We prefer making note of it. We try and remember to take a picture, but forget most of the time.

Dollar rates on "city specials" are way down this a.m for September, I check the 1st and 2nd week. Minivans are back down under $300

That is a default message anytime you use a coupon code. Don't worry about it. What you are using is an electronic coupon code, you could not get a physical one if you tried.
