I just booked with Dollar (City Special) and got a car from 5/4-5/14 for $244. I am going to keep checking for lower rates since last year I was able to rent from Alamo for the same number of days for $148. The rates really dropped in the last week.

that's great! I have heard that they do not ask for BJs cards but this code would work for all


I will still keep an eye out for a lower price though!

Check your rates!

Just went to the Alamo website to check the rates again, went down another $50 for our dates 5/3-5/12. $184.23 midsize using BJ's code and Visa coupon# AD2359FDF
Hope it helps someone

Was just able to rent a mid-size from Dollar (City Special) 5/4 - 5/14 for $219. It dropped $25 from yesterday and I upgraded to a bigger car. I am going to keep checking. It seems the prices at Dollar are now dropping daily. Hopefully I will get something for under $200 by the time my trip rolls around. The most I have paid for the same time period in the last 3 years was $178.

We used the KLM code and the $20 coupon code (NWEBCPN027) from National and got a mid-size SUV for the week of May 9th-16th for $224 (renting in TPA, tho' MCO was only a couple of $ more).

Since I always get the Loss Waiver Coverage (and it can cost around $30/day) this is by far the best deal I've found.

I usually keep an eye out for discount codes, but wait until at least a month out to actually book and then usually rebook that last week before I leave, when prices start really dropping. However, it looks like prices are dropping early this year. I just used my Alamo insider, Southwest 7016105, and the VISA AD2338FDF discounts and got a midsize car for eleven days for $218.47 all fees/drive out price. That's less than $20.00 a day (all fees included). I can live with that.

Try the Visa code - 7015504

Nevermind, the cost is already back up. For everyone looking - try MANY times a day. Every time I've caught a great deal, it's gone again in no time.
