$10 Weekend Rates at Alamo

Through May 31, Alamo is offering $10 per day weekend rates on rental cars that are kept for a Saturday night. This works for economy through premium cars, one day minimum and four day maximum rental. You can pick up as early as Thursday at 9 a.m., and must return by Monday.

The rates are capacity controlled, so always try to book early as you can cancel (or not..) if you don’t need the car.
