No Costco membership. Nearest one is almost 2 hrs away. Might sign up if it I couldn't get the extra driver another way. So far I can use other providers or codes to get pretty close.

Loss of Use Insurance - Thanks to this thread, I got the valuable info that Visa covers Loss of Use when the car is secured & paid via Visa.

Today I called to get some questions answered & I discovered some surprising info. I posted a separate thread on the Transportation Board (Visa Rental Car Ins Coverage - Loss of Use) to cover such. But since I received my help from here, I just want to let you know of that new thread & some info I deemed important -

1. Per my telephone call doesn't cover rental period over 15 days. However that is not listed on the website.??
2. Doesn't cover vans built for more than 8 people, including driver.
3. Only covers "valid & reasonable loss of use", which I'm sure will not satisfy the rental company, but any insurance company will have this condition.
4. Can see written info at http://usa.visa.com/personal/cards/b..._personal.html.
5. Call 800-VISA-911 or 800-356-8955.
6. What docs need from rental comp & how to file claim info on the website - might be a good idea to take that info on the trip.

Cheers to a Safe Trip!

Changed my rate code from aw9 to aw7 and saved another $20! Just click on "modify" your reservation and see if changing the rate code changes your rate! aw8 made it jump to $450

How are you able to combine so many codes? I have Costco, insiders and a good double upgrade entertainment coupon but I can't figure out how to enter multiple codes!

The Alamo website has the Nissan Maxima listed (https://www.alamo.com/fleet.do).




However when I hear Premium, I think Land Yacht! Crowne Victoria, Grand Marquis, Lincoln Towncar...boat! Come to think of it, maybe they'll have something like this for you...












If you use it on the Seven Seas Lagoon, watch out for Disney Security!













Of course, the Premium is likely something more land-based....











Good luck, and let us know!

Nov 28-Dec, 2012 with Dollar using Promo Code KISS2

Fullsize car = $140.xx inclusive of taxes

Would rather go with the ease of Alamo, but they are just too high right now.
Would rather see this reservation go down to around $100 too. Might cancel it if it doesn't and just stick with Magical Express

Insider Code is just simply entering your membership number and last name.

The costco code goes under "ID/Corp ID"

The coupon codes under "Coupon Code"

I'm looking to find the cheapest way from Cape Canaveral to MCO on 12/8/12. I figured the cheapest would be to rent a car (minivan, since we have 6 people and lots of luggage), which I did, through Dollar, for $84.07. Anyone know of a cheaper way/rate? Thanks in advance.

We leave in 5 weeks. Using the klm code our price for a mini van is $463.00, The next closest is hotwire at $626.00. Anyone use this code recently. We are flying into Tampa, their prices look to be alot more.

Lord, I hope not. The reason I asked what Alamo's premium cars are, is because I want a smaller car (one that's easier to park) down there. The only reason I went with a Premium over a Midsize is because using the codes I did, the Premium was cheaper for some reason. I don't want a big car. I'd be just as happy with a midsize or even a compact, if I could get one cheaper than the Premium I currently have.

Strange thing about the Premium size, most people expect a bigger car, but premium really means, "loaded with features" - so the high end versions of the cars. You might find a newer, fully loaded Altima on the premium aisle and a basic Altima on the full-size aisle.

Yes, the row will most likely have cars that comfortably seat 5 people, but you might find something small that will work for you. I've also learned that it never hurts to ask an attendant. I've always found a friendly person to help me out if I have a question, but I might have to go through a few "less than magical" employees first.

Thanks. I put in December 8th for return and it gave me the same price. One problem is I'm not a Costco member anymore.

I just checked expedia.ca for the sake of it since some times they have pretty good deals. Even if you are in the US you can still book there. I plugged in an 8AM pickup and 4PM drop off on Dec 8th and I got $54 inc taxes with Dollar.

UPDATE: You will also find it on expedia.com but often this is not the case.
