Hmm. I saw so many posts of people who had no trouble with it
And there's someone in this thread who has used it repeatedly with no issues. I wonder why some can use it and not others.
I am concerned now as well.

On FlyerTalk, I think they call it the DIS effect.

I still have both my National reservation as well as Alamo w/the Vroom Vroom code. Methinks I may hang onto the National one after all .

I not only don't want to have issues at the time of pick up, I also don't want to be fretting from now until August about the potential for issues at pick up, KWIM?

Is your National reservation with the KLM code? Considering that also includes the LDW like the Alamo Vroom Vroom code, my gut is telling me that it, too, is intended for non-North American customers.

I'm holding a KLM reservation myself but I have a backup with the xz53043 code. I am also going to keep watching for price drops with other codes that don't include LDW/CDW.

Thank you for posting this . I had a funny feeling that this code was too good to be true. Since I am not at all an International traveler, I will not take a chance with using this code and then be turned away once we go to pick up a rental car.


Back to the drawing board, so to speak.

Where is the xz53043 code from?
Thanks

Not much better if you ask me, since it's for Compass Group and I don't work for them...

Yep. Back to the drawing board. That's a shame. However, I still have hope. I was accepted with my first bid on Priceline in February about a week before we left. We got a full size from Budget for the trip and the whole experience was great. I believe it came to just over 200 for 9 days. I think I probably should have bid lower considering they took my first bid. Now, you don't get to choose the company with Priceline, but it will be one of the big ones that is IN the terminals not the ones near the airport so it works out ok.
If you go this route, just bid what you are willing to pay and if it's rejected then you've got your National reservation.
This isn't a good idea until the week of the trip though, so I'll keep looking in the meantime.

Hmmm. I had seen that code in one of the other rental car threads on DIS boards. I had assumed that "Compass Group" was a travel agency and it was sort of a generic discount code. Unlike the KLM and Vroom Vroom codes, it does not include LDW/CDW, any other extra insurances, and taxes.

It does seem like that Compass Group code is intended for the food service company's employees. Darn!

Oh, and I hate to break it to everyone...but the vroom code doesn't include the insurance. It's additional when you go to preregister and pay.

Lucky you! I am not a gambler so I'll keep looking for a code that I am comfortable using.

I have done VERY WELL with car rental prices for 3 years, so hopefully I will be okay this year also. The main difference this year for us is the length of our stay = 13 days versus our usual 8 to 9 days. We have never paid over $200 (with all taxes and fees) for rentals in the past, with the norm at approx $150 or so - for mid-sized SUVS, mid-size cars, and last year a Cadillac. I hope to pay not much more than $200 for 13 days, but that might be asking for too much this year, lol.

Dont blame you...I would stick to what I was comfortable with too! Hope you get the price your looking for and have a great trip. So do you stay off site is that why you rent the car? We only use it for one day to do shopping and then if we go on a cruise we use it to drive there and drive back. We did stay off last year in May and that is when I got 8 days for $102. I have only ever had problems with Dollar and would never use them but I am sure other people have never had problems with them...sometimes I think it is just who you get at the counter!
