Which really means you went from a compact to a full size as we don't have a Standard row at MCO.

Try using Costco Code 7014627 and Coupon Code AD2359FDF for Alamo Rental.

I just booked a full size car out of Ft. Myers with Alamo for 97.64 for 1 week -- Sept 11 to Sept 25.

Great Rate!

I was just rechecking my Alamo ressi hoping for a lower price. I used the Costco code and the AD2359FDF $35 off coupon. I am getting a message that the coupon cannot be used.

Any ideas???

What are your dates and times? Kind of hard to give you any insight with such minimal information.

I tried using the Costco code with the AD2359FDF coupon last night for my dates too (9/29 - 10/10) and it rejected the code. I have a reservation using the same combo already, so maybe they changed it so you can't stack those two discounts, or it could be a temporary glitch. I'll keep trying.

Ok, a couple more newbie questions! I read this on the August2012 car rental thread, post #749:

Booked a standard with Alamo there were minivans in the standard aisle. Pretty good score, $155 for ten days and drove out with the minivan.

But gmeh1 mentioned above in this thread that there's no standard aisle at MCO. ??? I'm guessing she meant the fullsize aisle?

We are traveling with our 4 kids so we *need* a minivan, no other options for us. Can you see what's available before you check out at the kiosk? Can I reserve a minivan AND a fullsize, and if there's a minivan in the fullsize aisle can I take it at the fullsize price? That way if there isn't a minivan on the fullsize aisle, I still have a good rate for the minivan from its designated aisle. Is there a penalty for holding two concurrent reservations and only using one of them? Is this bad car-rental form?

Thanks again for helping out. Y'all have already saved me hundreds of dollars, and I don't leave for a month!
