December 2013 car rental

Has an official thread been started yet?

I've started my annual stalk already and have a National Exec Aisle reserved from the 21st - 29th for $264 using the KLM/Fly Blue code.

Normally, I'd expect it to get better, but it never did for our Oct 2012 trip! Who else is in the hunt?

Now maybe some-one will pick me first for dodgeball

I'm in the hunt, too.

I am currently booked with National using the KLM code [8572130] and a $30. entertainment coupon. Total for a standard, 12/7 - 12/14, is $204. Not horrible at all, but hope to get a little better.

This code was quite a saving over the "rack rate" if you will for my travel dates, but the KLM/Exec Aisle was a better deal by nearly $100.

that is why we have to check all different options you just never know. Thanks for posting your findings
The KLM code came up about $40 more for me but it does include the collission, etc so it may be worth thinking about

What company are you looking at? where are you picking up and dropping off? Check some of the codes on mousesavers.com and some of the codes listed on other threads for other months some work for the entire year. I found that the KLM code, Travelocity and Vroom codes are good for most of the year. I don't have access to those codes but if you look at any of the months that have had a lof of responses they would be listed there somewhere

I feel like I have so many rental cars booked right now - but the number of people keeps changing.

The best that I have for 11/29 thru 12/9 with Alamo and VroomVroom (299851) for a Ford Escape is 328.00 and for a midsize same dates and same code is 290.79

I also have a mini van rented from 11/22 thru 11/29 with alamo and the vroomvroom code for 322.56.

I have a Budget minivan sitting in the wings with x474200 but if my current rental times are off when I finally get my airfare (southwest) it is going out the window because I can't get that code to work for me anymore - and if I change anything it almost doubles the van price.

Hopefully you aren't making multiple reservations for the same travel dates. That only drives up demand which drives up prices and makes it all that more difficult for everyone else to get a decent rate.

The dates do not overlap.

Don't worry I am cancelling the ones that I have if I find a lower price.
