Presently Alamo offers for each rental of a Compact or Midsize car in the U.S. or Canada a free single upgrade. I think that`s better then booking the Drive Happy Deal from Alamo as you`ll get a higher category without any risk. ;)

You don`t think that there is a chance to get a Premium Elite Car based on a Drive Happy Deal booking? The BMW 530i would be absolutely great! Must not be washed, haha. ;)

This can happen only when parking lots are empty and such a BMW 530i is available. But I wouldn't rely on that. Perhaps it might help that you ask for un upsell from Drive Happy Deal to Premium Elite telling the person at the counter that you wish such a BMW. Then there is for sure a realistic chance.

With an appropriate upsell you can always get a BMW 5 series based on a booking of a lower category. This should also work when you have booked a Drive Happy Deal from Alamo.

Btw the 5 series wagon version is not offered by BMW in US. Enterprise offers also only the sedan. But it`s a beautiful and powerful car.

Somewhere I`ve read that actually Alamo offer a free single upgrade. The condition is that a Compact or Midsize car is booked. This is a perfect alternative to Drive Happy Deal from Alamo as any customer can get guaranteed a higher category without taking any risk.

The actual rate for a Drive Happy Deal from Alamo at the DTW Airport is rather competitive. Around $25 below the Standard Car is an acceptable offer which I`ve just cecked out. From my point of view there is also a good chance to get a Standard car or higher at the DTW.

Yeah, rental rate seems to be competitive. Especially as Alamo is for me one of the premium rental companies. There I`ve always got nice and very clean cars. Staff at the counter was always professional. It´s long time ago that I´ve booked the Drive Happy Deal from Alamo. I think next time I`ll book this category again.

For this category it seems to be independent whether you choose the option paynow or you take the option "last minute specials". The Drive Happy Deal from always has always the same price. ;)

For the Drive Happy Deal from Alamo there is also a higher everday low price option existing. This means that it must be applied when you want ot cancel free of charge until 24 hours before pickup of the rental car. ;)
