    My alamo standard car rental went down 5 more dollars today. At this rate it will be free by the time my trip rolls around!



    Am I the only lunatic that has more vehicles reserved than people in my family... ha ha

    I really want something bigger than a car, but I REALLY love my car price.

    Standard SUV prices came way down today for my dates, but they still are $150 more than the car, so that's either $150 more in my pocket or my airmiles account if I stick with the car... It's a tough call!

    We are flying southwest, so If I rent a big enough vehicle I can essentially pack whatever we want for the trip. If I gow with the car I have to be a lot more carefull what we pack... decisions decisions!

    If I reserve a car with Enterprise can it be cancelled out if I find a better deal on another site? Or company? If deals are starting to pop up i'd like to start saving cheaper deals. Vans seem harder to find deals on.

    good questions, here's the link.. give it a shot.

    http://www.costcotravel.com/#0

    good luck to you :)

    edit: why don't you just book thru Enterprise, Alamo etc.. and use the Costco codes ?? you can get them directly off the Costco website.

    Hi All -

    My dates are Sept 26th - Oct 3rd. I really really really do not want to get a rental at MCO as I am traveling alone with my 2 year old son and the ease of ME is what I need. But to pickup at Swan or car care right now is $218 vs. $100 at MCO.

    Any tips on how to get onsite cheaper?

    How is everyone getting these great rates with alamo? I used the codes on here and my convertable is $755.44 and the econnomy is $441.40. The best I have found is National for $449 including taxes and insurance!

    It could also be where you are picking up, when you last checked your prices, or how long you will have the car. Convertibles are almost always more than the regular car. I did actually find last Feb that the convertible was cheaper than the economy for about a week. I booked it and had a 2012 Ford Mustang Convertible for 5 days for $125!

    Do you need to show the Costco card when picking up? And what coupon code is that? Do you need the "coupon" when picking up? Thanks!

    Down to $135 for Sept 28-10/6 using Costco code and American Airlines coupon for a standard(full size).

    Right now I am keeping my VISA reservation at $154 because we do not have a Costco card and I am a bit nervous about using that code. Hoping by the trip a VISA or Insiders code beats it. I always use the kiosk and never have been asked to show a coupon/membership, but still makes me a tad hesitant.
