I have signed up for the forum to thank so much for the news on the price, and for the explanation on how the City Specials work. ~$160 for a full size car 5/22 morning to 5/28 night. Now just sit and wait for either Alamo to drop their price (and use their kiosk), or for Dollar to go even lower.

I was able to get $105 / week for a full size at Dollar with the 'City deals' (start May 4th). Anybody know what Dollar charges (if any) for 1 additional driver (spouse)? I'm picking it up from the Orlando airport location.

Great thread!

That's an awesome rate! Hope they offer that at SFB soon! Looks like its only at MCO for now... Not sure what the rate for second driver is.

The $105 is before taxes and fees?

I think that 1 additional driver with Dollar is $10 a day, but I am not sure. Try a new dummy booking to check the price.

The $105 was before all fees and taxes. My reservation is for the first two weeks of May for a total of $300 (so $150 a week).

Also, I tried another reservation and paid a little more attention for the extra driver fee and found it on step 4 --- it's $11 a day.

If you signup for free Alamo's program and find Alamo about the same price than Dollar, it may be better to go with, because spouse is free to add as an additional driver with Alamo, when you are signed up on their insider program.

There should be some more companies that allow spouses to be added free of charge, but I don't really know which ones.

I just did the city special as well for a mid-size (DW and I don't need the full size). $104/week (before taxes, etc). Came out to be $182 from May 11-18. I'm usually a National/Alamo guy but that's out the window at this point.

Keep checking I got the same dates for 167 a couple weeks ago and I have been watching them jump up and down. Please let me know if you get a better rate or a good one at one of the other two.

They are really the same company. No difference between them, per say.

Avis Corporate Code

Not sure I'm in the right place, but I'm sharing our corporate code for Avis if anyone can use it. It's Q3197067, and it's for 30% off the lowest fare. It works up to a full size car. My husband travels for work, and he and other employees have used this all over the country. Occasionally it doesn't work someplace, though. I know it works really well in Oakland and Salt Lake City. None of us have ever been asked for ID. It's a pretty small company, and there isn't any companyID.
