I'm late w/ this, but the thread came up in my search for AVIS rental codes. I thought I'd contribute. I too need a one-day rental to grab the car from Chicago, IL O'Hare and to leave the car in a different city (Rockford, IL).
Normally I go with National Rental Car but seems they are out of cars tomorrow for a one day rental from O'Hare ( http://twitpic.com/baxk63/full ). Second choice is usually Enterprise and they are out.
I went to the AVIS site without any login info and was looking at $89-$92 BEFORE fees for Subcompact Hyundai Accent or similar to Full Size Chevrolet Impala or similar. w/ the K817165 AWD code mentioned in this thread, I was looking at $78-$87 BEFORE fees. I found another AWD code X133557 from this other thread and that got me the $73 - $79 range.
Somehow or another - maybe in the process of the Free Preferred Membership Account creation - another AWD code showed up which was X505639. That too was giving me the $73-$79 range for the subcompact to Full Size. So I just went with that.
What killed me though was the fees which were $38.34 on top of the $73:
- $8.00 per day (Customer Facility Charge)
- $2.75 per rental (City Tax)
- $1.25 per day (Vehicle License Fee)
- 11.1% applies only to certain corporate accounts (Concession Recovery Fee)
Tax ( 20.000% )
Base Rate and Charges
i mentioned Enterprise earlier. I recall renting from Enterprise back over labor day weekend w/ a same day call and it cost me something between $40ish and $60ish for a diff city drop off (pick up in Rockford Airport, return in Milwaukee Airport). Maybe it's just because the airport wasn't O'Hare. When I land tomorrow in O'Hare, will try my luck to call Enterprise and see if anything can be done. Hopefully I can back out of my AVIS rental if something can happen.
I know this won't help you anymore OP but hopefully it'll help someone else. Maybe I'll get lucky and someone will find this thread soon giving me some other options.
