Today Only: Half Price Car Rentals From Alamo

Daily Getaways is featuring $50 Alamo Car Rental certificates for $25 today at 1pm ET.  Even though there are 2,200 of these available I doubt they’ll last long.

You can access the offer here.  This is more certificates than they offered last year (2,000) but I still expect it to go fairly quickly.

This is one of those Daily Getaways deals I’m a bit conflicted on each year.  On one hand, 50% off a car rental is a pretty sweet deal.  On the other, I’ve heard from a few folks who had less than stellar experiences with Alamo.  I think as long as you don’t have lofty expectations, this one can be a good deal for you.

The Final Two Pennies

The certificates are valid for pretty much any rental, but only for the base rate.  You’ll still have to pay the taxes, though I’ve heard that using the certificate reduces the price and the taxes.

Even though the limit is 3 per person, I think you should be able to snag more of these if you use more than one name/e-mail/browser to close your transactions.  I’ve done that successfully with Daily Getaways in the past.  Discount hunters will be hungry for this one.  If you want to snag this deal, you’ll need to be ready right at 1pm ET.  Don’t be discouraged if you don’t grab them right away.  With 2,000 certificates up for grabs, there will be plenty of folks who don’t complete their purchase.  Just keep hitting refresh and you’ll be rewarded with a cheap car rental.

  1. These are NOT able to be combined with certain web offers, like Last Minute, or Alamo Insiders discounts

    1. Indeed, this is not a great deal, I’ve tried it before to disappointing results.

      Your Daily Getaways email/cert contains an 800 number to book under this rate and although you might save couple of bucks, this is far from being 50% off or half price as advertised. BEWARE!
