Default DVC Rental Car Discount

I was just on Alamo's and National Cars website looking into a rental for short period during our trip in March and I noticed a the discount was larger for National Car it was almost a 50% (Alamo was 10%) discount compared to the regular price. I used the code from the Perks section so I'm assuming its accurate and worked. But just wanted to make sure that this wasn't to good to be true.

Any thoughts?

Wow 50% that's alot! I've been looking for prices in May so I put in the discount code for DVC in both Alamo and National. Alamo gave me a little discount however National didn't give me a discount at all. If you got almost 50%off the regular price with National I'd go for it if I were you. I'm waiting for the VISA discount code to come out probably in FEB for May. Its usually $25.00 off plus 25%.

I should clarify the 50% off. When I put in my dates without using the discount code the total price was $200. When I used the discount code the total price was $116. It didn't show a percentage but it did show I was getting a different rate. So you might want to compare.

The interesting thing is that Alamo and National are both owned by the same company - Vanguard Car Rental!

And Avis and Budget are similarly owned by the same company (AvisBudget Group, Inc.)

Kinda makes you wonder about the price differences between the companies, doesn't it?

yeah it does make you wonder but I bet they flip/flop who is the more expensive of the two depending on demand or something. I just want to know that I'm getting a fair rate...thats all.

It what field are you putting in the code? It should go in the I.D./Corp. Code for Alamo and the Contract ID for National Car.

Hope that helps

Default DVC Rental Car Discount

I'm applying the code to the right place but the discount is not showing up. I'm using it in conjunction with another promotional code. Can that be the issue?

It should still work. Just make sure your entering the right code in the right field. Also for National Car it doesn't show a discount it just shows the corprate rate.

This is what I did I entered the basic info first and then it gave me the regular prices. Then I clicked edit information and entered a code and then noticed the price decrease.

Hope that helps
