I just rebooked with Alamo and have a midsize for May 10th-20th 10am-3pm (eleven days) for $210.77 all taxes/fees included, using the Alamo Insider, Costco code 7014627, and visa coupon AD2338FDF. That's $19.16 per day, compared to the $22.75 per day you are paying at Dollar.

I thought there is no way it would jump that high in just a few hours, so went back and put my dates in to check. I once again got $210.00 for my dates. That doesn't make sense. The only thing I changed was the dates (backing the pickup back one day and moving the drop off up two days). We'll be down there the same week but I am flying in on Friday morning and out on Monday evening, so will be there three more days than you, yet my rate for Alamo is almost half what yours would be? Maybe, because of the specific days I'm picking up and dropping off the car? Anyway, I just checked going directly through the Costco Travel site and found a midsize through Enterprise for your dates for $187.35. That's using no other codes, just booking through the Costco Travel site.

I booked Alamo for May 11-20 for a full size for $204.79. Not sure I'll do better than that, but I will keep trying!

National renters, check your rates. Mine dropped $12 today. Not a lot, but, every bit helps.

Right now, we have a mid-size SUV reserved for $212 for 8 days

What the heck! I just checked Alamo again, using these same codes and the price has jumped from $210.77 to $557.79 for the exact same dates and car. Going through the Costco site it's $540.00.

We just decided to add a day and go on the 10th instead of the 11th, so I revised through Alamo using the Insider rates plus the Visa coupon above, got a Full Size for $190.91. So cheaper than my original deal for one additional day - thank you Aubriee for the coupon code! Maybe we'll see you in the garage

Edited to add - we decided to stay one extra day (DH just loves it when I keep adding "just one day" on either end of our trip) and when I went to modify the reservation it jumped to over $400 for the 10-21. So I called and spoke to them, they were able to modify it to only charge us an additional $17 for the extra day.

Question First time renter...Help!

Where do you input the codes and coupons when you go to Travelocity? Do you have to sign up for Travelocity first? I'm needing a minivan for 5 days at end of April/beginning of May and Enterprise and Alamo have me at $284 for the week before any coupons or codes and Budget costs $762 for the week before coupons and codes. This is my first time ever renting a vehicle so any help/advice anyone could give me would be greatly appreciated.

If your booking on Travelocity, rentalcodes.com puts the codes in automatically for you & there are links to any coupons you have to print. The only one I know of that is a travelocity exclusive is the Avis/Travelocity free double upgrade coupon, which there is a link to it. Have you seen others?
I like using travelocity to compare various sites, as you can play with coupon codes very easily & especially with Enterprise & Alamo because both their sites make it very difficult to change coupon codes.
The other option is to go directly to each car rental companies website and manually enter the coupons/codes.

I still have Thrifty booked for $174, I'll hold on to both just incase.
Careful Alamo told me husband on the phone he could use his debit card. But when he got the the airport they told him no. Then proceeded to put up a sign on the counter that said no debits cards accepted. He ended up using his credit card. But you should be aware of this. But we still prefer Alamo.

Thanks for the warning!!! I did call and they said as long as I can show a return airline ticket I can use the debit card. It also states that in their policy. But I will be prepared just incase!!!

Trying to get a compact from 5/26-6/6 and so far the cheapest I can find is $417 through Dollar's City Special. I don't have a Costco membership (none around here), so does anyone recommend any ideas I can try? Expedia/Travelocity are giving me rates way over $450.
