    Rates are $20 a day as of this morning! I saved almost 50% from the $300 reservation I had with Budget.
    Go get 'em and good luck!
    Looks like this rate may only be for 1 way rentals though.
    Picking up at MCO on Sunday 05/20 and dropping off at TPA on Saturday 05/26. With Alamos Insiders our total is now only $157.10, compared to the $300 it was with Budget.

    Yep, one way rental for SUV and mini vans at a great price. Too bad you are not keeping it until Sunday, there is a great coupon out there, but it requires a Sat. keep.

    Her dates are listed in her post and the rental is a one way. My bet is that she is using the Insiders code.

    Can somebody re-list the Insiders code here and the code which requires a Sat. night stay - I'd love to book this.

    This $20/day special comes up without entering any special codes, but it looks like it's only for pick up at MCO and drop off at TPA. The codes will just save you a bit more.

    The insider corp ID shows up automatically for me when I enter my insider number and it saves 10% - it's 7015135. Additionally you can use a coupon that you qualify for. There are several from Entertainment book. Here's one for $35 off with Saturday night stay: https://www.alamo.com/index.do?action=/hotDealsTemplate&msg=Alamo_American2008specials-35-off.

    I got a 10 day rental over July 4th using Insider code and the $35 coupon for minivan for $220 total (including $7.50 surcharge for Southwest frequent traveler points). :thumbsup2 I saw this and booked last night after finding it on my regular check using Travelocity, but wasn't sure it would help anyone else since it seems to be specific to my one-way travel - but obviously some others find it useful also!

    The Insiders program includes additional driver for free which is important to us also because DH and I both need to drive separately at times. I doubt I'll find anything better than this. We can squeeze our family of 4 and luggage into a full-size, but we drive a van at home and like having plenty of room with a van on vacation too.

    This posting was a true Easter miracle - we were looking for pickup of a van in Orlando and dropoff in Tampa - I can't believe we just got that for 153 dollars - thank you so much to all the posters!:cool1::rotfl2::worship:
