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!

I am about to sort car hire and just to confirm do I need to pre pay or not to qualify? #confused... 🤔

Did this last year and took about 15 mins to get car and head off. Doesn't make a blind bit of difference whether you decide to prepay or pay on arrival, we prepaid with fuel and no bother.
That's okay if it comes up with the option to skip counter I tried for ages today until I read that someone had used Bing as a search engine instead of Google, then the option came up straight away. So although the page said that I could use Skip Counter, I couldn't find the option to do so, so in that way it was a fuss for me to sort out

Thank you so much for your help. Now have a skip the counter paperwork and bar code plus an email too! Happy days.
Thanks for the info on using Bing, I had problems with Google, but went onto the page straight away using Bing
