Thanks, gave a good rate for a mini-van in Vancouver.

Was that meant to be a publicly available code? If not, you could get onto the Do Not Rent List.

What does this mean? Using a code that wasn't meant for you gets you banned ("No car for you!")???

I used a 'public' travelocity code for a minivan rental in TPA. Makes me nervous now...

Yes, it can. Some companies are more strict about checking corporate ID and rate eligibility than others. Search the other threads in this forum for instances of people being banned from rental companies for coupon or contract code fraud. Where did you find your code?

The code is mostly advertised on the Mousesavers and DISBOARDS websites (X474200), so it's quite popular for Florida and California - esp. minivan rentals. Some people have reported to save up to $600. I personally saved about $400. It was almost half-price!

Apparently this is a public use Travelocity code that's been around for a few years. They do not require ID for it - it's been reported to work fine in all cases. Some people have even called in ahead of time to confirm it's use and agents have said there isn't any ID checks that go along with it, but I am always a little skeptical if I don't have ID for any discount I've booked.

I've booked discounted rentals with Entertainment, CAA and a few other programs in the past, and I've never been asked for ID (even though I had it), so it should be okay BUT...Budget is sold out of minivan rentals for my time period at TPA, so that makes me nervous....

U112000 was posted on the Budget facebook page so it should be fine to use.
