I am new to renting a car. Could you tell me please if you watch the site you have booked with and then have to rebook each time the price decreases? Thx!

We pick up our vehicle on Friday . Vacation time is almost here!

Just tried to do online check-in with Alamo and kept getting an error message when the payment information was entered. Two calls to Alamo yielded that my Visa coupon is preventing me from checking in online . So no proceeding right to the garage for me.....but we WILL try the kiosk this time.

Happy travels to the remainder of my fellow August vacationers! Drive safely and have a wonderful holiday!

Wow that's wierd that some that have used the Visa coupon have been able to do the online check in, while some cant. Im going to attempt it tomorrow right before we leave for airport, we arrive at MCO tomorrow night. Still checking rates, but they are way high right now.

With all of this recent movement, I'm going to keep checking morning and night!
Me too. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with all my free time once my vacation is over!

Lucky duck .

I wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that I am not a US resident?

So the moral of the story is....if at first you don't succeed, try, try again!

My last post got me to thinking....I wonder what would happen if I logged in to my Insiders account through Alamo.ca rather than Alamo.com (which is the site I usually use).

So...I log in to Alamo.ca, and begin the check-in process. Then I add payment information. Then.......voila! I get my bypass ticket and confirmation that payment and additional driver information were both added successfully!

It will be right to the garage for us after all! Whoop, whoop!

(Yup, I know....its the small things that make me so happy )

Our final price for an 8 day rental of a standard SUV, including taxes and fees, was $285.
