Hey all!

I just rebooked through Costco Travel with Budget- $119 for 11/3-11/10. Saving $60 over the Wendie code discount!

Anyone with Costco membership should check it out!

Thanks everyone. Advantage has a great rate for 11-9. $112/week! For our dates Alamo is still almost 300 for a compact. We have not used Advantage, but will try this time.

Through Costco you can get a fullsize with Budget for $135 and free additional driver.

Thanks for the Costco update. I just checked and it is cheaper as compared to Advantage and Budget w/ the Wendie code!

Does Advantage or Budget have any of the stupid fees that Dollar does?
Dollar requires a gas receipt within 10 miles of the airport when returning a car and also the toll fees they have. They want you to pay 45.00 - 47.00 to add on tolls. I might just pay the extra and go with Alamo. I have always used them but this trip is a budget trip and Dollars prices were a lot less. I don't know if Dollar is worth the hassle fighting with them at the counter.

Can you point me to the link that shows the dollar fees and terms about the gas receipt?

Do you need to by the toll pass or can you just pay the tolls. Want to be sure to do the right thing when I get to the counter.

Advantage is down again this morning!

Is there a limit to the number of times I can rebook and cancel? I think I've done it almost daily for the last 5 days straight

Woohoo, no Magical Express for me. I booked through Costco this morning and for my 8 day rental starting on November 2, I got an Intermediate for $147.12. You do have to have a Costco membership card no to book this and they say they can ask to see the card at pickup.

I could have gone a step down to a Compact for $6 less, but at this rate, I think I will splurge.

Boy, this rate is more like the old days, around $18 a day. I have no problem paying that at all.

Now I have to decide if I wish to cancel my Magical Express or let them send the bags to the room.

Glad to see you finally got a great rate! My rental with Alamo has been holding for the last few days at $183 (with all taxes and fees) for a Standard, which will give me a Full size. Got 29 days to go. Economy, Compact and Midsize are now cheaper but unless the Midsize would drop dramatically, I'm going to stick with the bigger car. Considering my first reservation was over $500 back in May, I'm very happy!

Quick question, never used advantage before, however I just put in my dates (11/27-12/8) and the price quoted was $181. This much cheaper than anything I've found so far. (Dollar has been the cheapest for $235). I've read the small print and it says this is including all charges? Is this correct? Am I missing something here? Just want to make sure

AFAIK, that's all inclusive. If someone here knows better I hope they speak up! I've never used Advantage before either.
