That's a relief to know. My DH is a veteran and does carry his DD214, so thought that might help if there's a problem. Picking up a minivan here is the best price I've gotten so far.

Could someone either post or PM me the codes for Costco for Alamo? I had the paper and now it has vanished. I like to book thru Alamo direct instead of the Costco site.

Thanks!
Debbie

My National car rental p/u from SOG and d/o at MCO went down another $76. I rented a full-size vehicle for 8 days with a booster seat, Emerald member, and coupon, reduced my rate down to $126 for the week with taxes.

did you try this code: xz53043? It might save you more. Sometimes it works that way, sometimes it does not. But, anyone can use the code.

Is anyone able to check in online for Alamo now? I am leaving Friday and would like to do some of the paperwork now if possible to avoid time spent at the kiosk.

My fare never did come down even close to the fare I got a couple of months ago for a Premium, which is odd. Last year they steadily declined the closer I got to my trip.

Back when Hertz was there, it was for SOG only, but, Alamo does not have that restriction, so, I guess they have changed rules.

Thanks for the codes! I am glad that I booked the mid-size SUV the other day because the prices shot wwaayyyyy up today!

I was able to get mid-size SUV from 4/29-5/10 for $330 and today it is $580!

And using one of the codes (forget which one) it was over $700. Which is just ridiculous!

Smile SOG car rental location

FYI - we stayed at the Polynesian and rented our car at Shades of Green. It's a short 10 minute walk across, and there's actually a path as others had mentioned right from the Polynesian. No issues getting into SOG. My husband said it was a smooth process, and we got a wonderful rate. Thanks for everyone's tips.

I booked a minivan for mid-May and my reservation does say "counter" pickup and we are Emerald/Executive Members.
For the record, I've talked to multiple people at Shades of Green and National car rental and they have all said you don't need a military ID to pick up from SoG. Simply tell the security guard you're there to pick up a rental car and they will direct you to the rental counter.

Thank you everyone for your contributions!

It really works when we all pull together to get the best deals!

This year I learned Military or not you can rent at Shades of Green. Saving that one for future!

I also learned that if you have a debit card you cannot use the Alamo's Kiosk. Last year I could use the Kiosk so that's a change.

See you all next year!

Yes, great thread and lots of help! Sad to say we won't be going back in 2014 as kids vacation is over Easter week and we don't want the crowds or the price increase. Looking forward to 2015!
