Alamo Issue Availability Warning For Florida

Hi guys,

Just a quick heads up, just received a call about Alamo Rent A Car warning us that 7 Seaters, 8 Seaters and 15str Minivans for July and August are close to going on stop sale.

Stop sale is car hire terminology that basically mean’s the supplier has rented out all of those specific vehicles.

Reasons for the stop sale can only be speculated about perhaps the  popularity of Harry Potter at Universal is one reason.

On a plus note at present Budget Rent A Car and Dollar Rent A Car have stated that their fleet utilisation is running to plan and they have no intention of issuing stop sales.

7 seater minivans and 8 seater minivan can be rented by visiting usrentacar.co.uk.

Kind regards,

James Thomas,
