I thought the Deal Retriever was easy to use and quick. It pulled up a 10% discount and upgrade for me, when I entered information for the road trip we might take this spring (to Disney, FL ) with our kids.

The site looks great and I found a couple deals! Love saving money on travel expenses. We’re planning several trips this spring and summer. I just can’t wait for warmer weather to get here so we can get packing.

3 Jessie C. February 20, 2013 at

I like Deal Retriever. I can sign up for deals and automatically save 10%, plus the search feature is easy to use, exactly like booking flights.

4 Ashley H February 20, 2013 at

I like how it is easy to use. We are not planning a road trip this year.

5 Ashley S February 20, 2013 at

I like how non-cluttered it is! I get confused easily! lol I don’t plan on taking a road trip this year.. but hopefully we can sneak in a little get away :)

6 Amy @ The Nifty Foodie February 20, 2013 at

I think the site is nice and easy to use. It reminds me a lot of other travel sites, which I find very convenient when quickly pricing out a trip. We have a road trip this summer to the Alabama beach areas. :-)

7 Jessica F February 20, 2013 at

I like it! I like that you automatically get 10% off.

8 Melissa M February 21, 2013 at

I love anything that helps me find deals!!

9 vanessa February 21, 2013 at

I just used it to price cars for our summer vacation/brother’s wedding! It was quick and easy.

I looked up a deal for a trip to Kauai in August. It didn’t really get me a “deal” just a free upgrade which you usually get in Hawaii anyway because they don’t stock many compact cars.

11 Kim February 21, 2013 at

I like the deal locator because I always get overwhelmed sifting thru all the various coupon codes that are for XYZ type car or 123 day trips or valid only in Timbuktu. This way I can see what coupon codes apply to where and when I’m going!

12 sara February 22, 2013 at

I looked up a deal to rent out of Portland in July for a family reunion. It offered me 10% off to sign up for Alamo insiders or a free upgrade. Same rewards as the last search I tried. We are not planning any big road trips this summer but maybe a few long weekends from home.

13 Kim February 22, 2013 at

No road trips planned for this spring or summer, but we’re thinking about something in the fall.

14 Kim February 23, 2013 at

2/23 – what a fun prize pack!

15 Elaine February 23, 2013 at

our family and i are planning on going to see the redwood trees this summer

We are planning on two road trips during the summer one is educational (D.C) and the other is relaxation (myrtle beach, sc) and like that the new sites makes it easy to find the closest location and gives you a choice of deals to fit your needs

We are thinking of using our time share to trade for Mexico this spring and I didn’t realize Alamo rented there. They even gave me a 20% offer with the deal retriever. Pretty good!

18 Denise February 24, 2013 at

This was my first time on the site and I thought it was easy peasy! :D We’ll definitely consider them on a future trip too! Cute webdesign and very easy; not a bunch of extra stuff you don’t need!

19 sara February 24, 2013 at

We have friends coming to visit us this summer and will need to rent a car for the week visit. They can get $10 off a week day or weekend rental from the deal finders page. They could also get 10% off for signing up for the alamo insiders.

20 sara February 25, 2013 at

We did a road trip last summer with our two toddlers. It was 17 hours each way and a bit looong! I think we would do it again though and I looked at the deal finder to check out an alamo deal. They offered a free single upgrade and a 10% off coupon.

21 Kim February 25, 2013 at

I like how the deal retriever allows you to pick a month for travel and not have to input exact dates.

22 Shannon February 25, 2013 at

The deal retriever is smart, they REALLY should make an app for it, please let Alamo know!

23 rachel February 25, 2013 at

It’s a natural fit for Alamo — when you’re looking at cars, why not see what deals are available? I like it.

24 Cori Westphal February 25, 2013 at

I think it’s easy to use, easy to navigate, and I’d definitely consider using it for our upcoming Yellowstone road trip this summer!

I would love to take the family to disneyworld for spring break. I found a deal in April for $10 off a rental weekday or weekend and also a free upgrade.

26 Livivua Chandler February 26, 2013 at

the website is easy to navigate with online checkin to cancel and other options. It is also optional for other languages

27 Jessica F February 26, 2013 at

I like how user friendly it is! I’m planning a road trip to a friend’s wedding in Michigan this summer… I’ll be needing a rental car!

28 Kim February 26, 2013 at

Looking forward to seeing what the deal retriever can find us for a Grand Canyon trip in the fall!

29 D Schmidt February 26, 2013 at

I really like the idea of it and it certainly makes me think of Alamo in a more positive way. We are planning a road trip later this year which I admit I am slightly dreading because my children are only 20 months and four.

30 sara February 27, 2013 at

I played “dream vacation” for Italy and discovered alamo deal finder has some good options. They offer deductible free and 15% off plus free additional driver. Not bad!

31 Kim February 27, 2013 at

Hoping that my next roadtrip will include using a new Kindle!… :)
