Hi all,

I have a booking with National for midsize rate this weekend, what are the chances of minivans/7 seater SUVs to be present on the EC aisle?

Would like to save money hence why I booked for the midsize rate and try my luck at the aisle.

Thanks in advance

They used to put some Dodge Durango on the aisle but I haven't seen those crossover, full size SUV or minivans for a long time.
I checked the price yesterday for this weekend and I found out that the premium crossover is cheaper than the midsize.
If you really need the minivan or large suv, just book it. You can also check the price with Enterprise as well so you will get your credits.

I am not 100% sure but I believe it was 2019
Most of their BMW 3 series are 2020

Thank you for the response. Sadly, I am 24 so I am unable to book the premium crossover. I think I'll go do that before they run out of vehicles. I'll just keep my national reservation, go early to check the aisle and cancel it if there's no vehicle that can seat 6.

I've got a reservation booked at T1 this weekend, the reservation email says "Upon arrival, please proceed to the area of the reserved car class to choose your vehicle."

Is it correct to say, I should be going to the counter? I'm an Emerald member but chose not to go with the aisle based on some of the feedback recently.

Sunday 7/26 8pm

2 Ford Fusion
2 Kia Compact SUV
2 Jeep Cherokee

Premier Selection

Mini Cooper Clubman
BMW X1
Mercedes A250

If you have a specific vehicle type reserved with National you can just go to the booth outside in the garage and the person there will help you find something. No need to wait at the counter.

As for 7 seat passenger vans or SUVs I havenít seen any in the isle since the pandemic started. Sometimes there are some off on the side which you might be able to upgrade into from a midsize reservation if they arenít being held for reservations. Keep in mind the long weekend is coming up and there could be a wait or shortage of vehicles again and the isle may be empty again.

Mitsubishi Eclipse x1
2019 Dodge Charge base trim with Quebec plate x1 (Took this one since probably we won't see any charger in the future)

PS
2019 Jaguar XE x1


July 30, Thursday @ 9:00 PM
ES - Lot is full
Multiple ford escape
Multiple usual Kia/Hyundai suv
Multiple Mazda CX 3 (plus one or two CX 5)
Mitsubishi Eclipse (plus one Outlander)
Buick Regal x 1

PS
2019 Range Rover Evoque x1

Few days ago I had a premium special rsvn with Enterprise, the guy did not have any sedan available.
They tried to offer me a 2019 Kia Sorento with 40k on the odometer. Other options are compact SUVs.
The guy said: "This is a upgrade from the car class you booked and I won't charge you for the upgrade."
They also refused to check with distribution center where I was willing to wait.
They couldn't find anything else similar to the class I booked (not even a Nissan Maxima or 300)
Finally I gave it up and re-book with National.

Not like how things were.

Lots of basic cars in EA. ES is basically just full like Mitsubishiís.

If you want something reserve it.

Noticeable upgrades: Range Roger Evoque, Velar and Jaguar F-Pace.

Lots of high mileage cars, hard to find anything under 20,000 unless you get lucky.
