Anyone know how to reset the Contract ID section on Alamo's website? I put in the Visa contract ID to see if it was cheaper that the WDW AP one and now it seems like it's locked on the Visa one. It doesn't give me the option to put in a new contract ID.

On second page where you choose car type click edit than there should be remove next to contract id

I've had the same thing happen with the Visa code, but not on other codes. Clicking 'edit' on the next page didn't work either, seems it does get 'locked' on that darn Visa code. Try logging out of the Alamo site, or close out your browser and open a new one.

I beat my $11/day rate with Dollar for 5/18 to 5/21. Alamo's daily rate is $15/day but I used Coupon Code AD4196JDG for $10 off a weekend rental plus signed in to Alamo Insiders for an additional 10% off. Total is $52 including all taxes and fees. It was $58 with Dollar. I like using the self service Kiosk with Alamo too so I don't need to stand in a crazy line

What is the coupon for? Do we need a print out

So glad to see prices have finally gone down through Alamo. I was getting a little worried since I was the one telling everyone the prices would go down! For those that are new to Orlando airport or Alamo be sure to use online check in, it allows you to bypass the counter and go directly to your car. AND definitely keep checking those rates everyday! I am willing to be they will go down even more.

Oh and no you do not have to print off any type of coupon.

Ooo I didn't know we could bypass the kiosk too. Online checkin worries me a bit when flying. What happens if there are problems with your flight?

Unfortunately with Alamo, if you use a coupon you will NOT be able to do online check in. You CAN check in at one of the kiosks by the counter tho, and still avoid the line at the counter,

I've had the same thing happen with the Visa code. But with other codes the remove option is there. I had to clear my browser cookies to get rid of it.

Dollar vs Alamo

I have a minivan reserved with Dollar and Alamo. $15 dollar difference.

Who would you choose?

I am both an Insiders member and Fastbreak.

Thanks!

I leave tomorrow and have to say, my rates never got better than what I booked months ago. I never got a "last minute" drop in prices. Since I leave April 30 I've been subscribing to both the April and May threads. This happened to me in late January for that trip. Those rates never got better too and no "last minute" drop in prices there either. I've already accepted that my price was the price I was going to pay, but secretly I kept hoping for a better price. I only rent through National and Alamo now, so that does slightly limit me. I've rented through Budget, Dollar and Hertz and perfer not to use them anymore. Nothing horrible to post about them other than the long lines, the hard sell for insurance, and the vehicle conditions. I even crunched the numbers for picking up at SOG and the price was not much better considering I needed a minivan for the second half of the trip. The savings was just a couple of dollars and not worth the hassle. Good luck to all and I hope the prices get better.

I would definitely go with Alamo. I haven't used Dollar but we rent from Alamo all the time in Orlando. I LOVE the kiosk - it's so fast! We rented from Budget last time because Alamo rates were sky high. It took over an hour to get a car vs typically less than 10 minutes with Alamo.
