Whenever we travel we rarely take our own vehicles. They are a little older and we don’t want to risk anything happening to damper our vacation fun so whether it’s a road trip or we are flying, we rely on car rentals. It’s also a nice way to enjoy a few extra amenities on our trip that our older cars don’t typically have. It adds to the excitement of traveling and always makes the trip more fun. However, I admit, trying to find a great rental car that fits our budget in the past was time consuming and headache inducing.

That’s why I was excited to learn  that Alamo recently redesigned their website and are now featuring one of the easiest ways I’ve seen to find the best car rental deals.

Alamo SiteOn the site you can use the Alamo Deal Retriever to search all valid Alamo deals and coupons on the web. This makes searching for a car rental more efficient and affordable.

Alamo Deal RetrieverI also like many of the other features of the new Alamo site redesign including:

  • Smart Auto-Fill of Locations –  so you don’t have to keep typing them in every time
  • Easily Add Additional Items – in the second step of the reservation it’s simple to add extra amenities like car seats
  • Upgrading Is Easier Than Ever – in step four of the reservation you can add an upgrade
  • See Your Savings – through every step of the reservation process you can see your savings along the way
  • Trip Tracker – as an Alamo Insider you can track your trip
