Is This a Good Deal?

If you have an upcoming Alamo rental, saving $25 off could be a good deal.

But you have to book with Alamo.  So you can’t use the certificates on cheap rentals booked through sites like Hotwire.

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).

A Miami 1-Day Alamo Rental Costs ~$92

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.

Bottom Line

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!
