Thank you - got a minivan for the first week of December for $207; best I've found thus far!

I have to have the additional free driver, so for now, I guess I will stick with what I have. I have a full size SUV or Mini Van, 9 days, 12/02 - 12/11, free additional driver with Alamo Insider, for $292.76.

Way more than I want to pay, but prices are so high for everything this year. I could also have a full size car for a total of $178.28 which I might end up choosing to save over $100.

You (and I) are going during the busiest time in Orlando. Car companies don't need to offer discounts or accept coupons. Your rate of $414 (including taxes and fees, right?) for 10 days is not bad for that time of year. I would book that and keep on looking. Rates WILL go up.

Your dates are so much cheaper than mine 12/6 to 12/13 but they aren't that much different.

When I rented from Alamo in August they told me Insiders no longer get free additional driver. I just ended up not listing DH as a driver and I did all the driving. It would have been so much easier if he could have driven too because I'm a better navigator but I didn't want to pay the $70 for a week. I had my Insider # on the reservation but used the AP holder group number (not Insiders) and a Visa coupon. I've tried to find it listed on their site but I can't find anywhere that they say Insiders get additional driver.

Thanks to another post I found the additional driver info on the FAQs under contact us on the Alamo site. Now I've got to email Alamo and let them know just how annoyed I am with the agent who insisted it had changed.

Lovesdumbo, what type of car are you renting and what is your price? I'm curious how much more you are talking about that you are paying.

By the way, I am using my Alamo Insider's and a $30 off coupon, AD2338FDF to get the prices I found. You must pickup car by 12/15 to use this coupon.

Does anyone else have a better coupon out there? I haven't found any higher than $30 so far.

Greenclan57,

I would stick with the reservation you have for now and keep checking. Right now Alamo's coupons expire 12/15. I did a little searching for you, but I couldn't find anything cheaper for you. The thing about rental cars is that you have to check daily and at different times of the day. Prices change that quickly.

Good luck.

Oh believe me I do! I check and re check. I do my Xmas trip then my March trip! I think we may just be renting a care from Tampa to Kissimmee, if the prices stay high. There is a Hertz right at the resort, and if we need one we will do that.

Thanks for posting the coupon code. Worked great for me.

I logged in as insider, used AP group code, the coupon you just posted and got $298.41 for Standard for 1 week plus 3 hours.

I'll keep trying but I'd much rather pay closer to the $178 number you're getting for more days and I'm only arriving 4 days later.

Just tried with just insiders ID without AP ID and got the exact same price.

Just to post the price I got with Alamo - 10 days for a Standard size car for $164 using the insider and the $30 coupon code listed above. My confirmation says that an additional driver is included. My dates are Dec 7 - 17th.

Just tried it with just insiders and no coupon and got the same rate so it doesn't look like I'm getting the $30 off..

WOW. That is a very good rate. I have one less day than you and they are quoting me nearly $300 for my dates. We're the 13th to the 22nd. Good for you!
I'll stick with Dollar for now. I always prefer Alamo because of the ability to choose my own car, and I'll switch if the prices drop for my dates, but I am happy with $198 for now.
