I need help!!! I've been trying to read this thread and I have stickies everywhere with codes and numbers etc. and I just can't find a decent rate.

I'm flying into JAX 9/28 to 10/6. I do not have a Costco membership but I am a USAA and DAV (disabled American vet) member and have those codes but for some reason they give me higher prices? I'm willing to take anything compact and higher. Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated. Right now I'm at $235 w/ taxes.

Your dates are similar to mine except I'll be in NH. I have scoured everywhere and came up with just about the same price as yours. I used hot deals through Alamo and another code (can't remember off-hand). It stinks.

Alamo last minute code is IG plus coupon AD2359FDF

These promotions don't pop up automatically, you have to use the above codes. My rate for Oct. 12th is still high, but hope I can get some of these last minute deals as my time gets closer. Good luck.
I have been using all of these and the rate for National is over 1000$ for my trip (9/24 - 10/2, 5pm pick up and drop off) and Alamo is 777$....if you can get something to show up for the 300$ rate without costco, I am interested!!!

I just rechecked the costco rate and its 600$...so less than the others, but far from last years prices....

I am willing to pay the 300$ for a mini-van, but I will be very unhappy if I hear that others ended up picking them up for free in a full size aisle on Monday!!

Do you have magical powers? When I input the same dates & codes for the PP's minivan, I get a rate of $757 with insiders and $851 without. My own dates (9/29 - 10/10) are $1052.

Any idea why you would be getting such a drastically different rate?

I just tried and got the same results as n2mm, without even using my insider member #. Not sure why you are getting those higher rates.

No magical powers, but I do know that sometimes you need to dump your temp files/cookies. You can try that or try a different computer. I feel better that MadaboutMickey got the same results.

Good luck.
Thanks, gmeh1. I did call back and got another super-nice rep. Apparently once the reservation has been modified to a certain degree by phone like mine was, it can't be accessed online at all. The rep assured me repeatedly that the reservation is rock-solid and the rate is valid, and quoted me the same rate over the phone as I'd been told earlier (which was actually less than my original reservation; rep#2 worked some kind of pixie dust magic and I think doubled my coupon or something). He also accessed it by name/date/time, so I know it's in the system by name and not tied only to this confirmation number. He did say we would have to go to the rental counter and could not use the kiosk, which is fine as long as I know ahead of time.

What a day! I can't believe the amount of time I have spent on this rental car situation. It far exceeds any other planning I have done for this vacation. As much as I'm looking forward to all the benefits of being off property (private pool! 4 bedrooms! fully equipped kitchen! multiple bathrooms!), this almost makes me want to go back to using ME and resort buses.

...almost.

Thanks for the tip. I dumped my cookies/history/etc and it worked. Who knew? It still gave me a crazy high rate for my dates but I'll keep checking as it gets closer.

Hot Deals for your dates may post today! The deal that ended 9/17 was for car pick-up by Sept 25.

Thanks Guys!!! I also seem to get schizo results when using the codes...I feel better that it was happening to others too!! I did manage to catch it once at 298, but since that was only 1$ less than my current reservation, I didnt change it...I will keep watching!!

OCC - Didnt see any hot deals for MCO this week on Alamo either!! I havent checked National and Enterprise to see if the sister companies all have the same list, but it seems plausible that they are!

bummed we haven't gotten our National rate to budge. We are at about $288 with the KLM contract ID and the $30 coupon. DH is really skittish about rental car companies (bad experience) so I have to stick with National/Alamo

Although MCO is not listed on the last minute Alamo deals don't forget you can use the SUNPROMO code to get 15% off on your Alamo rentals. The code is listed on the Alamo website.

I did see that, I think my AA contract ID with coupon worked out to be a better deal, though. Thanks!
