Holiday Travel Promotion with Alamo and $100 Amex Prize Package {Giveaway}

Rental cars are very popular during holiday travel. I know for us, it would be ideal since our tires are not so good and family is 6+hrs away.  Choosing a rental is also ideal if you need something larger or something better on gas.  Alamo is providing you guys with a special promotion to use this holiday season, as well as, giving a prize package for me to give away here!

My favorite things about holiday travel are getting to see all the pretty decorations & lights in the towns we travel to.   It’s fun to go through states and see the various styles used as well.  I know here in Texas, we go all out in a western tradition!   I also thing traveling in the car with the kiddos makes for great conversation and fun games.  Truett’s always wanting to play ‘I Spy’.  He uses the “I spy with my little bitty eyes” and he makes us say, “I spy with my big ol’ eyes”.   It’s just a time that we can all be close and nobody can head to their rooms or town or a friend’s house.  And finally, the best part is knowing you’ll arrive at your loved one’s home to celebrate the best time of the year!  And with the money you save with the Alamo rental car promotion, you could stop in one of those towns and buy a gift to take wherever you’re headed.

Before I get to the giveaway, let me share the promotion with you so that you can save some money when traveling via a rental car this holiday season.

    I love the excitement and anxiety of travelling to your destination, just anticipating the moment that you see your family that you haven’t seen since the year before. I also love how the kids get so excited asking “are we there yet?”. All of that just gives me such a happy feeling! Thanks!
