Was this through their normal reservations area or was it a bid? If this was a bid, what was your bid amount?

Anyone else having a problem when trying to use the visa $30 coupon at Alamo this morning? It says the coupon isn't available at this time.

I just got that message too. I have seen it occasionally in the past and it seems like someone on the disboards said they only offer it to so many rentals on each date. But I have no idea if that's true.

Had the same issue last night when I tried. Even went through the Visa site, but got the same message.

Glad to see I'm not the only one! I hope there won't be a problem using it when I pick up my existing reservation. (That may just be my paranoid personality talking, though!)

I had the same problem, so I've just phoned Alamo. The person there confirmed that that coupon has now been used by the maximum number of customers, so it no longer works for new reservations.

He did confirm that it would be honoured on existing reservations. I was relieved to hear this, since I got an error message on the Alamo site when I tried to bring up a reservation I'd made several weeks back using this coupon.

Still, the price I have is double what Alamo gave us last year for the same week. Has anyone found any better new offers?

Priceline is tempting...page shows only Budget, Hertz, National, Avis and Alamo (all on site). Are these the only companies that I could end up with (MCO)?

Is there any disadvantage to low-balling, and then up the bid until it is accepted? Other than data entry time lost?

I tried to check in online and it would not let me. (something about the coupon) So I called and they said that I would have to check in at the counter and show the coupon ($30.00 off that is listed on this thread) I do not have an actual coupon, I was just going to pay with my visa. Is anyone else having this problem???

There is no coupon:

From the Visa site:

"Save up to 20% and receive $30 off when you rent any size car in the United States, Latin America and Caribbean and pay with your Visa® card. Requires a 5-day minimum rental with a Saturday overnight keep.

To redeem this offer, click the link below to book online or call Alamo at 1-800-462-5266 and request ID 7015504 and Coupon Code AD2338FDF."

They (Cust service reps for these rental car companies) have no idea what they are talking about-usually.. I have had to call Alamo in the past and I have known more about their offers than the people I talked to.

I guess you can print that off the website. that should be sufficient.

Thank you so much, that worked, I printed it out and will bring it with me.

I also told them how much we disliked the new website.

You might wind up overbidding if prices drop and you're still raising your bid. I use Hotwire to see where the opaque market is. You can *always* beat Hotwire's overall price with a PL bid, often by $3 per day or more. Last Feb, minivan rates didn't drop until 8 days before my trip.

I had asked this question a while back, when I was making a reservation, it no longer included an additional driver. I had received answer here that as an Alamo insider that an additional driver would still be included.

Well, tonight as I try to check in for my pick up tomorrow, they are trying to charge an additional $9.99 per day for another driver. This was always included before the website change. When I made my reservation it said another driver was included, but it did not print on the confirmation. I am so frustrated at time I could just SCREAM!!!

Has anybody else had these issue with Alamo.
