From March 23, 2015, to April 24, 2015, a new travel deal will be available every weekday at 1:00 pm Eastern Time. But some of these deals sell out fast!
Here’s today’s deal.
Deal for March 23, 2015 – Save $25 on Alamo Car Rentals
Link: Daily Getaways Calendar
With today’s deal you can buy a $50 Alamo car rental gift certificate for $25.
You’ll pay $25 for the certificate, which can be used towards any Alamo car rental at participating locations in the US. And you can buy a maximum of 3 certificates, and use them on 1 rental. But you have to call Alamo at 866-626-9102 when using more than 1 certificate.
However, you have to pay taxes, surcharges, and other fees separately. So you should use them on rentals with a base price of $50 or more.
The deal goes live today at 1:00 pm Eastern Time so have the site loaded on your browser and be ready. This will sell out quickly because there are only 2,000 Alamo car rental certificates available.
Is This a Good Deal?

If you have an upcoming Alamo rental, saving $25 off could be a good deal.
For example, you’d pay ~$92 to rent a compact car in Miami on June 26, 2015, from the Alamo website. If you used the $50 Daily Getaways certificate, your net cost would be ~$67 (~$92 rental cost – $50 gift certificate + $25 cost of certificate).
In this example, you’d save money by booking through Hotwire instead.
While you can NOT use the Daily Deals Alamo car rental certificate, with Hotwire, you’d only pay ~$40 booking and you’d get a midsize car.
So you should compare prices before buying these certificates. Because you might save more money booking through discount sites like Hotwire or using AutoSlash.
At 1:00 pm Eastern Time, you can buy up to three $50 Alamo car rental gift certificate for $25 through Daily Getaways.
You can use the certificate at participating US Alamo locations by booking with Alamo (online or phone). But you can NOT book through discount sites like Hotwire.
And if you’re redeeming more than 1 certificate (you can use up to 3 on 1 rental) you have to call Alamo at 866-626-9102.
You might save more money booking through other sites. But do a search to see which deal works out better for you.
I think tomorrow’s deal is a lot more exciting!
