How to get a minivan for a full size car price in Denver

Jump to last reply

We (2 adults, 2 teens) have two rental car reservations with Alamo for our 17 day trip from Denver airport....

full size car (Chevy Impala) for $350
Dodge Grand Caravan mini-van for $614

The $350 price is SO amazing that we really want to make it work, but the trunk is not going to be big enough to hold our luggage, cooler, groceries, etc. (We experimented packing our Hyundai Sonata trunk today which is pretty much the same size.)

The $614 price is actually really good too for a minivan, but the $264 difference could buy us a lot of food. Or gas. Or spectacular horseback riding at a ranch.

Is there any chance we could take our $350 full-size reservation to the counter, and be upgraded to a minivan? Maybe even for an extra $100? If they don't offer an upgrade, could we whip out our van reservation and go with that instead? They would probably see both reservations in the system when they pulled up the car one, though, right?

We also have a Thrifty minivan reserved for $586 but spouse doesn't drive for free like with Alamo. It's not crucial that I be able to drive also, but the $28 difference there seems negligible.
