Rental Car Prepay Option


#1

I see that Alamo (maybe others too) now offer a prepay option where you pay for a rental car upfront and save a certain amount. For my proposed $159 rate, I would save about $12 by prepaying.

Has anybody done this?

It seems to me that if you know for sure that your trip is on (mine is in 33 days), saving the $$ is a no brainer. Any thoughts?

It’s a decent deal, and it saves you time skipping the rental counter.

Watch the skum at the garage checkout. That’s where the ripped my AMEX number several years ago - you have to show your credit card and drivers license. (Only place I used that card was a MCO auto check out and at POLY for room charges.)
