emmabelle, don't give up! I really only use National, and they, so far, for our trips, have ALWAYS dropped a really amazing amount in the month before the reservation. I'm pretty sure it's the same for other companies.

I'm kind of really loyal to Alamo, I really don't like to use other companies...totally not sure why.

I'm just thankful that there's free transportation so I don't have to pay those extortionist rates.

Well they are the same company, so keep on checking back. I have a rate booked right now for Feb and I have NO intention on actually paying that, LOL. I'm just that sure the rate will go down as we get closer. (watch I've jinxed myself)

it's just two of us, so we only need a compact for 2/3 to 2/10. I'm going to keep checking.

We fly in on the 22nd and yeah.. our 10 day trip is looking ridiculous with Alamo. It will come down. Not time to worry yet.

However I don't plan on paying more than 200 no matter what so I may switch my trip around to start at Disney and use Magical Express, and then go to Universal for the last weekend and just rent a car for that. I will only do that if the rates stay this high.

I just booked a SUV with Alamo for 2/2-2/10 for 265. Hoping it will keep coming down as it gets closer. I did insider deal plus $20 off code.

Good for you!! It's getting lower!
I have mentioned before I seem to find the best price at 6 or 7 weeks out so it's time to start looking for rate drops.
Where did you get the $20 code? I haven't been able to find one that doesn't expire before I need it. Should be new codes coming out soon though

Yea I know I was in a full size but with four adults we decided that the extra 40 was worth it to spend to get the SUV. Code I used was for SUV Minvan or convertible ends feb 10 AD2778FNZ

I'm trying the same dates. I don't see your rate and the coupon says it expires before my trip. It's supposed to end on 2/10. You're using 7015135? (edit...I see you posted which coupon you're using)

What kind of car?
I have had a friend that told me that car rental and airplane tickets websites remember your IP address. Each time you go on their website their prices go up making you think you should book right away before they go up again. I don't know how true this really is but I was just Alamo website price was around 500. Then I cleared my history and cookies and the price dropped right back to the 265 which is what I booked at. Hopes this helps someone.

Just go to the Dollar site, put your dates, times, and pick up location in, under car type leave it 'all types' and get rates (without putting any discount codes in). It will take you to a page with prices on the different size vehicles. About 1/3 way down will be a bright yellow area that says City Specials. Click on it and it will give you any specials for your pick up location.
