I am getting over $800 for a minivan for 9 days with Alamo on the Costco site. What am I doing wrong?

I am seeing around $400-$500 with various Alamo codes, For Jan 4 - Jan 13. I am not overly concerned (though I think if it goes down to the $200 range I will probably book), in the past discounted rates have always been the best around 21 days out, With various other times being extremely high. Don't worry to much, I think we will be ok.

I am under 21 days right now and Alamo is not coming down. At least not yet. I have reservations with Budget just in case. Beginning to doubt Alamo and national will drop to something within reason.

Keep watching right up until you leave. Our last trip I paid $150 for 10 days in a full size with Alamo, andI booked the night before we left. We ended up with a mini van!

Car rental prices are so frustrating. Anyone find a good price lately?

Other than the "here today, gone tomorrow" deal I got at Dollar, the most reasonable rates I have seen for my trip (1/10-1/15) are Dollar with the oi1054 corporate code.

I don't think they are down. It's crazy how much they are charging for a car rental.

So I finally broke down and rented from Payless Car Rental today. Didn't want to rent from them since you have to take a shuttle. I've rented from them before .... pushy trying to get you to upgrade but I just keep saying no.

Here's what I got using my perks account (5% off) and discount code CYBER26 (15% off which expires tomorrow).

Jan 13th - 19th mid-size $87.65 including all taxes and fees

Jan 19th - 26th mid-size $102.32 including all taxes and fees

I had to do separate rentals since it will be 2 different drivers.

I really wish Alamo or National would drop their rates but at least now I have something.

Check rates at the Car Care Center vs. MCO

I was just checking rates for our January trip and found quite a savings using the Car Care Center with Alamo as opposed to picking up at the airport. Which is strange since the airport has always been cheaper for me in the past

Here are my rates using just my Insider Club (free to all) discount (no coupons):

Jan 1-12 Economy-Size Car
- Airport (pickup and drop off) - $667 w. taxes
- Car Care Center (pickup and drop off) - $433 w. taxes
- Car Care Center (pickup) and Airport (drop off) $352 w taxes

I just priced economy, but other car sizes were also heavily discounted on property. Still too expensive for me as I have a much lower rate I got months ago, but best prices I've seen with Alamo in the last month. Hopefully this helps someone.

That makes a BIG difference in rates (over period Jan 10-15)when I checked for pickup at CCC, Swan/Dolphin or Shades of Green (who even knew there was an Alamo desk there?) and dropoff at MCO.

My current Dollar deal still beats it (it was a freaky 1 day find), so I'll still keep it. But I hope this bodes well for rates at MCO to come down.
