Oh, and oh...poop....I can't modify or delete the Alamo reservation with the Vroom Vroom code. I know peopled used to have this issue with the National and the KLM code but that's no longer the case.
Thank you for explaining the vroom vroom code brettb- But, since I don`t feel comfortable using the KLM code, (and I have the credentials to prove I can), Im certainly not going to use the vroom vroom, taking a chance that alamo pulls the code and we have to pay up the wazoooo when we get to the counter......About the KLM code- I have read on another thread that after dropping of your car at the end of your vacation, National charges for what your ressies say, and then there is a balance due for the LDW charges which some folks had to call and dispute....NO thank you !!I will certainly post if Alamo drops their rates here, as I am waiting patiently as well

I am using my MasterCard, as it doesn't charge me the 2.5% conversion fee on top of the exchange rate like my Visa does. I have an Entertainment Book, though, so I have a $25 coupon from there to apply and save myself a little $$$ .

I used the Vroom code and got an Economy car for 8 days for $208 total. More than what we spent last year for 7 days but a much better deal since this includes and extra day and collision coverage.

Thanks to all for the info!

Does the vroom code allow you to use the kiosk rather than going to the counter?

Code, savings, and Alamo ???

Last year I was able to score some awesome deals from Alamo using a code from BJ's and a random Visa CC code that I found on here ....

Now that my air is booked, it's time to start my rental car search - so far with most codes, the prices for 12 days is outrageous! Enter to "vroom" code, and the Visa CC code, and my price for a standard car from Alamo drops to almost half. I am psyched about that, HOWEVER, I don't know too much about this vroom code. Do I have to sign up on a certain website?, or present a certain coupon?, are there any "catches" to this great deal? We don't really need an additional driver since DH usually does all of the driving, but it is nice to have - it that an additional fee using the vroom code?

And let's say I make a ressie with the code - if I find a lower price, can I cancel the ressie that I made with the code online, and re-make another - or do I have to call Alamo?

TY for any insight....


Sorry

@5boyz ... I noticed that you reside in Canada ~ I live in the US. Would that make a difference using the code? And if I do use it, will I be able to use the Alamo kiosk at MCO prior to picking out a car in the airport garage? We did so last year and it was a breeze. TYSM

I have a question for those that have used this code. When I check for 10 days in January of 2014, I get a price of 334.00 for a standard SUV. There is another price for a standard SUV, but it is more and you do not need a credit card to reserve it. Has anyone come across this? Would you reserve the lower price SUV with a credit card? I also got a message about going to the counter when I arrive. I know I had asked earlier if you can just use the kiosk, Thanks for any input.

Honestly that I dont know but I dont think it makes a difference? If you call and ask they will let you know at Alamo. Sorry! Yes it is so easy checking in online going to the row picking your car and going thru the booth...

Sounds like the prepay option. The price is lower as they give you a prepay discount. There are two prices on the page, the one on the left is more expensive and you pay when you get there, the one on the right, which states it is the "prepay now", requires you to give them your credit card number. I believe you can use the kiosk. Worst case, you try and if it does not work , you go to the counter.

Used the Vroom code for mid size SUV $231.29. Less than half what it was without.
I don't have to show anything, right??

Found this on the January board while looking for more info on the Vroom Vroom code :

The guy I spoke with didn't seem to know where the code came from, but assured me it should be ok to use. I had his name, date and time that I spoke with him but it made no difference at the counter.

Luckily I had made a second reservation using the Insiders code just to be safe, so I had a back up reservation. As a courtesy, they did give me the same rate on my Insider reservation as the Vroom Vrooom code which was about a $20 difference.
Needless to say, I cancelled my reservation with that code! Although it might work at the kiosk, I'm not willing to take that chance...
