My rates just keep going up. I've been checking every day with different codes and suggestions. I haven't seen a rate drop for Alamo, National, Dollar, Advantage, AAA, carrentalsavers, etc. for almost 4 weeks now. Also the Alamo coupon is now blocked out and I no longer have a city special available for Dollar. I do have 2 reservations with auto slash, but neither have budged in almost 4 weeks too. Never seen rates so high for so long. 10/31-11/10

Could you need to clear your cookies? I put in your dates for MCO and the city special came up, $300 for a economy before taxes.

My car rental with Alamo went down another $15 this morning! Standard is now $183.01 for Nov 14-23. National has never budged since I made the reservation months ago. It's still at $305 for EA.

Well that is strange. I've checked Dollar on four different computers using 3 different IP address and different browsers and cannot get that city special to show up for the past week or so. That said, I gotta be picky and need at least a mid-size for us to drive. I appreciate the help though!

I just tried Dollar for two different weeks in November and City Specials popped up. $83.10 for Lock Low & Go. For us, Alamo is still almost $400 per week with taxes. I have tried Alamo daily and it has never dropped lower than $350 - $400 for a compact.

Try it with corporate code oi1054.

May I ask where you pick up the car and what company you got after bidding? I've been considering doing the "name your own price" but I'm not sure if they offer airport pickups or if we'd have to take a shuttle somewhere.

Thank you!

Oh my goodness! Thank you so much! SO MUCH!

I was looking at around $300 for our car (11/11 to 11/17) if I rented from National, Alamo, or Hertz. All of those were NON-airport rentals.

Thanks to you, I just booked a car through Dollar for $105 before tax. And we can pick it up at the airport!!!

I've not rented through Dollar before; so I'm hoping it's ok!

Again, thanks for posting about the deal!

That's interesting because when I did it earlier, it gave me a better rate for my rental/times.

I just put in your dates on Dollar and came up with a mid-size for $331 total or a standard for $320 total using the city special. Full size is $360

When you go on Dollar, don't put in any coupons or discount codes - just your dates and search. In the middle of the menu of prices, is a button to the right that says City Special. Click on that and the discounts come up

Hope that helps!
