(Reminder) Join Alamo Insiders to Save on Car Rentals

If you have summer travel plans that will involve car rental, I wanted to remind you that you can still sign up for Alamo Insiders.

Alamo Insiders is a Rewards Club, which is free to join, and offers benefits like an additional 10% off the regular Internet rate and free additional driver benefits, plus right now they are offering a bonus two category upgrade on all car rentals.

My husband just rented a car for me for my upcoming trip to Boston. He found that the best prices were through Costo (we’re members) and thru Alamo with our “Insiders” membership. For the smallest car, which is what I wanted, Costco ended up being about $2/day cheaper after all the fees etc.

But if I had wanted a larger car, Alamo would have beat Costco hands down. To upgrade two categories with Costco would have cost an additional $17/day. But with Alamo Insiders, that upgrade would have been free – putting it at $15 LESS than the Costco price.

In the end, I went with Costco – since I really just need the tiny little car, but I was really impressed to see that Alamo was so competitive.

You can sign up for Alamo Insiders HERE by clicking on the blue Join for FREE button. Note that you will need to enter your driver’s license number, so be sure you have your wallet with you.

  1. I thought that the local Enterprise was usually the cheapest.
