Hi all !
Subscribing to this thread as we are going to the world this year in August instead of July as we usually do. We have always used Alamo, but honestly, this year I have found their new web site HORRIBLE to navigate through....plus the rates for August are still sky high...ugh....I usually have a ressie by now, have never heard of the Vroom Vroom code, we usually use our Costco membership and an entertainment book coupon for $$ off or an upgrade, and have never been charged much over 300 total for 2 weeks with a full size car... so it will be interesting to see what happens as I will be watching and waiting with all of you for a drop in rates for August !!
Happy Planning everyone !!
PS....I originally made a ressie using the KLM code with National, but Im very skeptical about the LDW which is included as well as all taxes and fees, (even though we have joined the KLM FF program and have an email card to verify) I still don`t feel comfortable using that code for some reason, so I canceled it this week with a total for using the EA at 430.00 which was still alitle high..

The Vroom Vroom code for Alamo includes the "CDW" and "Extended Protection, just like the KLM National code includes the "LDW."

For 8/3-8/12, I got $271.55 for a full size with National/KLM/$30coupon and $266.84 with Alamo/Vroom/$30coupon(I think).

Oh, and oh...poop....I can't modify or delete the Alamo reservation with the Vroom Vroom code. I know peopled used to have this issue with the National and the KLM code but that's no longer the case.

I have been able to cancel reservations made with the Vroom Vroom code. In fact I cancelled two since yesterday when I found better coupons.

This has been happening since they updated the website for some. I don't know if it's because I booked with my Insider ID or the coupon I added but it also won't let me modify or cancel online. However, you can email or call and they do it right away. Bit of a pain though.

Thanks!
Vroom Vroom...no you dont have to belong to any clubs. Like I said I have been using it for almost 3 yrs..I also used it in combo with Visa coupon.

The rate includes all taxes, unlimited mileage, collision damage waiver, and extended protection .

I guess I can go ahead and cancel my National ressie.
No problem! Love helping others!!!!

I LOVE using Alamo and was disappointed to not be able to last trip. There is nothing better than just waltzing up to the self serve kiosk, picking your own car, and leaving. It's easy and so much faster than many of the other places
I agree!!!!

Thank you, thank you , thank you 5boyz!! It's a great code and although I'd always like to get a little lower I can relax with this rate as it's pretty darn good!

I have a $15 off from the Entertainment Book that I can send you (and there's no maximum to the number of days to your rental like the other coupon code). I will drop the hard copy in the mail but I can PM you with the code too, once you clear out a few old messages from your inbox and free up some space.
Also try the Visa code if you are booking with visa....I got a car last may for 8 days with visa code and vroom for $102.
