"Alamo Skip The Counter after doing OLCI

I've just followed the sticky thread. Open up your booking on the Alamo check in so your details appear. Leave that window open. Open another window and Google bing.com. Open the bing.com search engine, enter ALAMO SKIP THE COUNTER and open the first result at the top of the page. Your details from the Alamo page you first opened will now populate this new page. Follow the instructions add your credit card details (a normal debit card with a Visa or Mastercard logo will work) complete and print off your form. It should have a barcode at the top and you will receive an e mail from Alamo confirming the process has been completed

This using Bing certainly worked for me and I now have the Skip The Counter Ticket but like I say doesn't work for everyone it seems



perfect! after following many threads on this and failed to do it ive done what you suggested and have now fully booked in on the skip the counter with 0.00 to pay and have our printed confirmation! cheers x

Thanks so much for this, it worked!

All this should be put into the Sticky so all in one place. Can an Admin do that?

Thank you Yorkshire Dan and teach x.
I had booked via charter travel. Went and did online check in. I opened up a new tab and put in Alamo skip the counter, clicked the first one and nothing in happened. I then opened up Bing, put in skip the counter and clicked first one and it worked!
Thank you so much for your help. Now have a skip the counter paperwork and bar code plus an email too! Happy days.

Just want to say thanks for the great advice in this post re skip the counter. Where would we be without the Dibb! All completed, now for the holiday.

Thanks again,

Alana

Sorry for the newbie question but does it matter what year the guide is that you have for Alamo Brits? I have an old one from 2011 but don't know if I have to buy a new one now. Also, in our party there are 2 of us both hiring cars. Do we both need a guide each? Thanks

Hi. No it doesn't stipulate which year and in fact it doesn't even have to be the Florida one!
Nobody has ever been asked for it either.
However if you are nervous I'm certain you could make an excuse to pop back to the car behind you and pass it over!
