Time to check car rental rates again......

Just checked car rental rates and it has come down again. Both Enterprise and Alamo with Costco discount.

I've saved another $20!

Can't beat the Costco Alamo Rates. I just re-booked again today. My standard car is $9.60 a day (of course all the taxes added on bring it way up) , but that is an amazing daily rate on Maui. I have been rebooking daily as it has been going down each day.

My dates are 21 days Aug 6th to Aug 27th: Standard for $411 (taxes included).

When I checked last night the rates had gone down....today (just a couple hours ago), it was back up.

Wow, I am so glad I checked this out!

I had a car reserved through discounthawaiirentals.com (Alamo) for $211 for a week (Sept 4 - 11) and just booked directly through Alamo for $113.

I'm so excited, thank you!

I correct myself...I went through costco travel/alamo instead of using the alamo insiders program "just out of curiosity" and shaved off another $15 on top of the $20 that I just scored. I am seeing extra mai tais in my future...

Two weeks (August 16 - 30) midsize for $265 US including extra driver and taxes. Nice.

Question: if you book an Alamo rental through Costco, can you use the kiosk checkin? I saw some postings that said you can't use the kiosk if you have a coupon. I saw others that said you should check in online the night before, skip the kiosk and take the shuttle directly to Alamo.

I haven't been to Maui in four or five years so the kiosk concept is new to me. Last time we took a shuttle to Alamo and stood in line forever and a day...

Advice? Experiences? How does this work?

Thanks!
