I know! How awesome to get a full size for such an awesome deal! We love walking to that full size aisle! Not to press my luck, but we ended up with a nice SUV once from there. And we weren't being selfish either, at that time there were about 5 minivans and 4 other SUVs as well as every other space filled with a full size car. Most had been just washed so we arrived at the most perfect time.

That was once out of four times. But still a fun way to start the vacation. I'm fine with an Altima, which we got last time, (and what we drive at home, but I don't consider it a full-size, LOL, Maxima is full size but they say its a premium) or any of their other full size cars too. SOOO happy to see the rate drop. Here's some pixie dust for the rest of you still waiting!

And I know it was a computer glitch that accepted my coupon - so I re-booked this morning with a Southwest Airlines ID code (30% off, I assume) and a $30 visa coupon. Saved an additional $20. We're down to $179 too!

7015765 and AD2338FDF.

Other IDs that will give you 15% off
VISA - 7015504
Costco - 7015309

Just used the Alamo insider ID, the code they have from the e-mail for additional drivers and the entertainment book coupon to get a 10 day van rental down to 283. Slowly improving.

The car rental is down to 190 for 10 days with a double upgrade coupon (and the additional driver)

That additional driver really limits our options, but it will sure make for a fun trip!

If you have a Costco Membership, their ID 7015309 will save you 15% and get you a free additional driver.

great Alamo rate

Just reserved Alamo from 11/27-12/7 w/ a standard car for $183.40 with "sunpromo" and coupon "AD2335FDC". This was adding one extra driver on & includes all taxes, fees & charges. Boy....do those add up!!

Thanks to who ever posted it....
I cancelled my Dollar and Advantage reservations and prefer Alamo over the other 2. We have never had an issues w/ Alamo in the past, always a good experience.

Now the big question is.......what coupon is AD2335FDC?? It gave me $30 off and said I "may" need to present a coupon. I hope not, I don't even know what it is for, but it worked and gave me another $30 off the rental price.

Anyone know what that coupon code is???

Thanks -
Karen

You're welcome! And like a PP said, that code is a mastercard code. If you don't have mastercard, there is also a visa $30 off code too - AD2338FDF. We have rented from Alamo the last four trips and have always used some sort of coupon and never been asked to present the coupon. We always use the kiosk too.

When you are entering the info for the reservation, under "Optional Rate Information" you will see a box that says "I.D. / Corp I.D.:" and that is where you would put that costco contract ID.

I just got a Premium car for Oct 27th-Nov 4th for $212.33 total, using the Alamo Insiders, Coscto, and $30.00 off Visa codes (better than the $245.00 I was paying for a compact car using those same codes just yesterday). I really just wanted an midsize car though. Wonder why a Premium was cheaper than an Midsize?

Anyone know what Alamo has for Premium cars?

From the always helpful, gmeh1, a great DISer who works at Alamo and kindly informs us of all kinds of car rental info:

"The Premiums at Alamo usually are: Chrysler 300, Taurus, Accord, Maxima, Merc. Grand Marq.

The Full size cars usually are: Impala, Malibu, Fusion, Camry, Chargers, Altima, Mazda 6."
