Has anybody made a new reservation with Alamo and noticed that it does not include and additional driver in the cost. I have always had an additional driver included in my cost. Not a fan of the new website, just want to say!!!

I need a one day reservation in Anaheim. Pick up DTD and return at Long Beach. Does anyone have the cheapest option suggestion for me? Any codes? I can get the rental for $51 but taxi would be about the same thing.

Thanks for any assistance you can give me.

One day rentals are tough to find coupons for, other than upgrades. I see Alamo is the company at DTD--they also have another location just offsite--check rates at both to see if one is cheaper. Sign up to be an Insider and you get a small discount. Check for last minute rates (used to be code IG)

You may also want to check out Kayak or another site to compare rates for other companies that are located just offsite.

And Mousesavers keeps pretty good track of the various discount codes/coupons available.

My ressie with Alamo dropped $40 today. 1/1-1/13 full size for 217 using Visa and Insiders. Would love National to start dropping but $220 for 12 days I can live with.

Yes, I called and asked and was told it is still free for insiders. I used the Costco code and it used to be included with Costco, too.

My Alamo reservation just skyrocketed too - I got a premium (only because it was the cheapest) rental 1/10-1/15 down to $161. Today it's up to $465 - economy is @ $315.
I'll keep an eye on it, but I think the low rates are gone. I'm happy with what I got - (insiders and AD2338FDF 30 off). National hasn't come down at all yet - they are sky high.

Uh oh....did I wait too long?

Didn't really want a rental while we are there in Feb (checking in Jan 31), but if we go to Sea World, etc...we might as well get a car for the week instead of just two days, right?

I just read the last few pages of this thread and am worried I waited too long to get a good rate. Darn!

Has anyone noticed that Dollar's codes do not extend into January? When do they typically release codes for the following month?

On Thursday, we were able to reserve a full size car through Alamo for 1/5-1/18 for $121/week, $278 total w/ BJ's coupon & Insider member. We watch everyday. This is our fourth "ressie" for this trip. Today it is back up high.

I got mine down to $173 last week for 9 days of rental. It's over $350 now for the same time.

Of course I did
Costs nothing to reserve, so I grabbed it.
I just daily as prices change all the time. This time they went the wrong direction!
