On our last trip, we were left in a tight spot when our airline cancelled our flight. Instead of a direct flight to Orlando, we re-routed through Charlotte, NC, and Tampa, FL. From there, we rented a car to get to Disney. Since we were kind of figuring things out as the day went along (I don’t recommend it for anyone) we went with the lowest rental price (probably not smart either, but we were already spending hundreds more that day than we had planned)
Somehow, we ended up renting from Alamo. It was almost effortless. In and out in less than 10 minutes, and on our way to Disney. A tip worth noting: Compact cars aren’t always cheapest. In our case, they had an over-abundance of full-sized cars, so we were able to get a full-size for less than a compact. We only used a 1/4 of a tank to get from Tampa to Orlando.
The last and best thing about renting from Alamo was returning the car. We were staying at Boardwalk and as it turned out an Alamo is at the Dolphin. The guys pulled up at the Dolphin, asked where to go to return the car, the valet said to park it on the curb hand him the keys and they were done!
It was one of the few things that went right that day, we were so grateful.
Interesting note: We ride PeopleMover everytime we visit, it’s a tradition. It wasn’t until this trip that we noticed it was sponsored by Alamo.
