Saved a bit

Just posted this for my December peeps and wanted to share here as well...

10 days (11/28-12/7), minivan through Dollar, $340 including all taxes and fees.

About $50 less than I got last week through Alamo...

Happy hunting DisPals

Shea&Van - I was able to book a minivan 11/29-12/7 on Dollar for $207 (about $239 with fees) using the OCBV code from Mousesavers. A day shorter than your trip, but significantly less so try it out!

Yes it's legit. Heard about it here on Disboards in this thread and other threads. They don't take cc info. You just get a reservation #. Best rate I've seen and I'm still checking daily

Thanks. I just got a confirm for it I will keep checking as we get close but for an SUV that is a GREAT rate! (2 years ago we had a standard booked with Alamo (at the same time of year) for $143 and we ended up getting a Ford Edge that was parked in our row. But for $29 more, knowing we are locked into an SUV, I am really happy with that price).

Also, I just looked at Dollar and an Avenger (full size) for a week was $164 today ($35 less than yesterday). Still like my SUV rate better

Still no luck for me for Oct 25th to Nov 4th. Dollar is still 404.00 I don't know what to do. Still thinking I will go with National minivan down to 387. and we have additional driver for free.

I will have to check them out. The other night I got a couple of great deals for a full size and mini-van at travelocity through Dollar. My timing was perfect as those deals were gone the next morning.

So happy some of you are seeing a price drop

I've tried a bunch of times over the weeked and I still can't better my rate of $340 for 10 days over Thanksgiving for a mini van...grrr

MartDM - thanks for the tips!!! I'm wondering if because we are picking up on a holiday, our rate might be that much higher. I'm going to keep trying and congrats on getting such an amazing price!! Or maybe my timing is off when trying to log on for the best deals.

Happy planning and searching DisPals!!

Anyone going in November might want to go check carrentalsavers again now, I just did and got $214 total (inc of taxes and fees) for an intermediate car for 11 days. It's about $20 more on dollar's own site.

You're welcome & sorry it didn't work for you. Frankly I was surprised to get such a good price with such a run of the mill code (usually I have to get much more creative!)...maybe it was just good timing.

Hope you hit on something!
