    Where is the coupon from and did you book on Dollar or Amex site? Thanks for the info.

    Thanks for the Amex and Alamo codes! This actually saved me $5 from my Costco/Alamo rental. I may or may not keep it because the Costco includes free 2nd driver, but it's nice to have options!

    Do you have to pay with your Am Ex card if you use the code.

    Does Dollar still have the city special rates? I'm not seeing them on the website. It looks like the website has been redesigned? Thanks

    The first time I used the code a few years ago was told @ the gate it was mandatory. Did have it with us, didn’t really want to use it on the rental, but the manager on duty insisted.

    Yes, I've seen them. After you search there should be a button to click to pull them up.

    I can sometimes get the button to click for city specials and sometimes not. I think it shows when I go directly to reservations from the Dollar website.

    I think it may not show when I click on a link (e.g. one on an email) and it has a special a code; even if I back out and delete the code from the reservation information and then move forward again I won't see the city specials.

    Alamo is finally dropping a little for our trip...Was at $296.35 for a compact. Booked that last October. Today I rebooked a mid-size for $253.25. I used BJ's discount with AD2823JAZ $25.00 coupon.

    Alamo prices have dropped and now I don’t know what I want. I have a full size for $243, intermediate suv for $250 and standard suv for $265. Does anyone know what’s been in the full size aisle lately? Or standard suv?

    Rebooked today for $203 for a standard SUV with Alamo. 8 day rental with free second driver (booked through Costco).

    $2 cheaper and one class up from the $205 for the intermediate SUV that we were originally holding. I truly thought it wouldn't get any cheaper than that, so was happily surprised to get the bigger vehicle for a teeny tiny bit less.

    If you chose pay now on dollar.com, can you cancel and get a full refund? Thank you!

    when you have rented thru Costco, have they asked for your card at the booth? I hate to have to carry another card with me but if I have to I will.

    thanks

    I would double check as you finalize the booking, but I had 2 pre-paid Dollar reservations in the past month and cancelled both without any penalty. Budget, on the other hand, charges a $50 fee if you cancel.

    Got my Alamo rental 5/2 to 5/9 - 7 days + 2 hours pickup/dropoff at MCO down to $213,50 for a mid size SUV. That's a drop of $32 from the lowest I had. Feel much better with it closer to $200!

    I am actually a bit shell shocked today. Checked my reservation this morning and my total rate dropped to $85.00 for my 10 day rental.

    I don’t think we’ve ever been asked for our Costco card.
