Hi Kaz

I paid less than that for a Premium grade car for 3 weeks all inclusive with Alamo. A lot of people get caught out with the claims of a "Free" car, there is never any mention about the cost of the insurance upgrade. By the way this isn't just limited to Thomsons.

You will indeed get a much better deal going direct. Enjoy your holiday

Away next week, with a rental from the 15th.
Booked a "standard convertible" through Alamo Brits at DCCC.
Sent them an email to see about "expressing a preference" for a specific model, and have been advised their current fleet is:
Mustang convertible, Camaro convertible, and "new Miata" (suggesting it's on its way into the fleet)...
Obviously, they didn't guarantee a specific for me, but they did say they'd put a note on the reservation.

I am looking to hire an SUV with Alamo in October. I appreciate the fleet list at the start of the thread but does anyone know and up to date fleet list for Alamo SUVs?

I dont know if it makes a difference, but i will be hiring from Tampa.

Thank you. I think that might be the 'standard' class and there is also an 'intermediate' class as well.

Basically I am trying to weigh up between an intermediate SUV for about 750, pay 900 for standard SUV or look at a private rental for a 2006 hummer h3 for about 550.

So just trying to get a guage for what I get for my money.

Where did you get the price for the Hummer?

It is from a website/app called Turo. People make their cars available for private hire and its all done through the app and you get certain assurances etc. Guy did me a discount on the vehicle because of long stay.

Interested to hear about the new MX-5 Miata coming onto the fleets as it's supposed to be a cracker. Just the thing for Longboat Key and AMI but sadly can't see even one rigid case fitting in the boot, and there's no rear seats of course

Hi renting a premium SUV via Hertz in October , supposedly a Suburban or Expedition.Cant nail down Hertz to tell me if they have 7 or 8 seats in their Suburban .
Anyone rented premium SUV group T6 PFAR recently ? Did it have the bench seat for the second row ?

I've heard that a lot of the Hertz fleet do have the 8 seats but it would be good to hear from someone who's been out there recently .

Just checking out the list of cars from Alamo.
We have booked economy : Kia Rio and similar.

However 2 years ago we also had economy car booked and when picking form appropriate aisle in the garage I did not see any small cars at all. We had Chevy Cruise, which by the list on front page is Intermediate car and it was in economy row with lots of other same size vehicles.
That is why we never pay to upgrade the size, it's only 2 of us and economy is always lovely and big.
Fingers crossed this had not changed in past 2 years and will be lucky again when we go in 31 days :-) Chevy Cruise was lovely car with huge boot!
