Dollar has dropped their May prices (first week). Go to their site, plug in your dates, don't select a vehicle type....it will bring you to a page with ALL vehicles listed.....click on the "city special" icon that is tucked amongst the list of cars and prices. Still not as low as I got last year at Alamo, but took something until the prices drop again.

DH was happy with this rate, but I will periodically check around to see if we can get an even better deal.
I've been looking and lurking, and found Enterprise to be the best price at $283 for 11 days mid=May pick-up at Sanford, drop-off at MCO for a full size. Unless anyone has had a bad experience with Enterprise?

I tried both with dollar....with and without the orlando magicard (pick up and drop off at MCO). Without the card, but using the Dollar "city special" was cheaper. $265 all inclusive...dodge avenger, sat morn to sat evening. Am awaiting my delivery of my Entertainment book for my Alamo coupon savings; that is how I got a great deal last May. Plus oodles of other coupons for places I frequent.

Bummer

I don't see the 'city special' icon when I try to book with Dollar. But my dates 5/7-11 still come back with $24/day, so with a code, it is down to $150. Not as good as usual, but better than it's been lately.

I have the same dates as you, yet I keep getting $30/day rates. Can you tell me what code you used?

May 1 thru 10

Just reserved Alamo using BJ's code 7014696 and Visa coupon AD2338FDF. $267.74. Not great but better than it has been.

Wow...so strange....when I use that code (for the same dates you're using), I get a weekly rate of $260 for a mid-size (the cheapest rate they're offering me with that code). A compact is $374!

Yet when I use the Corp ID of OI1054, I get a rate of $30/day for a compact (again, the cheapest rate for that code).

Must be the times of pick-up/drop-off that are giving me the odd rates. My pick-up time is noon, but my drop-off time is 5pm.

Can you tell me where you found the Visa code, I used it for a half decent reservation, and I would love to print it out. Thanks

visa code answer

You dont need a coupon to use the Visa code. You just pay with a visa card.

They are charging me 4 days and 2 hours (10am pick up and 12 noon drop off).

At least you get an extra day at Disney! Both direct flights home for me are now in the morning. Which sucks.

Got a tip from the April thread that saved me $68 so I thought I'd pay it forward. For April 30-May 9, got a mid-size with Alamo for $226 using the Southwest Rapid Rewards corporate code: 7016105 and the Visa coupon: AD2338FDF. The best rate I found before this was $294 for a compact with National using the KLM code. Hoping rates continue to go down.

i also reserved at national using the KLM code and it was far and away the best rate i could find!! hopefully as we get closer, rates will drop & coupons are going to come available for our dates so that will help things come lower also

i currently have an SUV reserved but i'm wondering if it's worth just reserving a mid sized to save a few (and is quite literally isn't much) dollars, taking a chance with the Emerald Aisle and hoping to find one?? thoughts? we've never used this option/membership before...
