My dates are the same as yours, but a little different times. 6:00pm pickup and 3:30pm dropoff.

I'm getting $168 for a Standard with the free upgrade code.
Yes, I tried it again and couldn't get it to that price again. I've checked my email to make sure it is my dates and times lol.

I previously had a reservation with Dollar for 238 (minivan at MCO, 9/16-9/22 at noon, tax inc.) but it went down to 216 at Alamo logged in as an insider, with the bonus that as an insider, there is no additional driver fee.

Does anyone know if there are actually any 'choice' of minivan at Alamo or all they usually just several of the same one?

The mini vans with Alamo are usually Dodge Caravans and Chysler Towne and Country. Sometimes there is a Kia or two or a Nissan. There is one Premium mini van......Sienna, costs a bit more and won't be found on the mini van row.

Well, for me...all's well that ends well. Alamo did charge my credit card $141. My original paperwork said it would be $105. Dh told me that he questioned the guy when he returned the car but was told that the computer system was down and there was nothing he could do. And that dh should call Alamo when he got home. So, I returned home a few days later to deal with it. I sent Alamo an email stating the issue and that I wanted $37 refunded to my credit card. I was polite but assertive. I got the email today telling me that they had refunded that amount. So Alamo did the right thing. And no toll charges were on there either.

Looking for quick help please.


Our car crapped out on us yesterday while here at WDW. It is now in the WDW car care centre until Tuesday. Anyone have any quick codes to help me get a vehicle at a good price for a couple of days? Today is already a write off but maybe can salvage our trip to Daytona tomorrow if the price is right.

Thanks

John

Thanks very much folks. Just booked a compact thru Dollar at Wyndham for $58. Gives us a car to do some off site stuff we had planned at a reasonable price.

We leave Friday and the best I've gotten is $198 with Budget for a 9 day minivan rental. Do prices normally go further down the week of? I've only seen them going up since I got this price on 9/7.
