Car rental rates seem to be down

Hi All! Just wanted to let everyone know booked through Costco to check their rates. They seem to be down especially with Alamo. I rebooked via the Alamo web site with my Costco code and a coupon I found and it brought down my rental for a full size to $218.18 from $268. I was pretty pleased with that. Hope you guys will see a price drop!

I just go to the Costco travel website and pick the car I want, and then follow the prompts. Or you can just phone them. They have always been very patient with me! I have never waited more than 45 seconds to get a human being either. A real treat!

It's on the coupon they supply at the bottom of their "low price finder". :) Their customer service is great, they also provide the online chat. I used that one numerous times now Joan.

I just checked a few minutes ago hoping that prices for my car may have dropped a little but it looks like the price has actually jumped by $50!

Oh no! Keep an eye on your rental though. I watched mine everyday at different times of the day and I even searched the internet for codes to add to my rental. I was able to drop my price $20.00 this way.
