I just got an email from Expedia.ca for a one day sale. My dates are February22 to March3rd and its giving me rentals with Dollar in the $350 range. Dollars website is still coming in at over $700.

Now I know on a thread I was on last year for car rentals that Americans can book through the Canadian Expedia and had no issues with their rentals. I have also booked through American Expedia being Canadian and had no trouble. I normally just go with whoever is cheaper and they take my credit card either way. So it's not the greatest price but they are much lower than the car websites so you may want to take a look

Wow!

I just happened to check out a code I had never tried before on Budget (D590000) and I used your dates. An SUV is cheaper than a compact!, and comes in at $284.00 including taxes. I didn't use a coupon code, because the one I had for 20$ requires a 5 night stay, and you only had 4 nights. There might be weekend coupon codes available though...

And Expedia.ca is 233 for a fullsize for your dates. Not sure if you have a rental locked in already but you might want to check.

Thanks! I think we have decided to use Magical Express. One reason we wanted a car was to get to packet pick up for the Princess Half Marathon. But, the pick up site was moved from WWoS to CSR and they are not allowing cars to park at CSR for packet pick up.

For anyone still holding out hope for a decent rate...
We leave on Friday. I got an email from Priceline offering Bonus cash for a car rental. Basically whatever I bid, they would add 2.00 a day to my offer. So I bid 12.00 on a Standard car for our dates. The rental was for exactly 9 days.

It was accepted So for $194.44 (all taxes and fees included) we have a 9 day Standard rental from Budget. That beats my Enterprise rental by $60 for the same car and makes my goal of coming in under $200.
So if you are leaving soon and comfortable with Priceline give it a try

I just posted this on March rental thread, but realize it's also for February:

I just got a great deal with Budget for a rental starting in 1 week (Feb 27th) for 12 nights (return March 11).

My previous best deal was through National using KLM code and 30$ off coupon for $342.00 (Intermediate car with Emerald Aisle). The price has not changed. Even if I look for the same number of nights starting every day for the next 7 days, nothing changes. So I'm not expecting this to go down.

I checked Budget yesterday, nothing great. Checked this morning (exactly 7 days out) and bingo!

So 12 nights, Feb 27-March 11
Intermediate Car
I found that using the costco code W852802 was slightly better than PP's code (W810011).
Also used 30$ off MUWZ126

$244.36 - 30.00 = $214.36

My only concern is that I have read that Budget tries very hard to upsell (to the point of forcing you to buy extra insurance), and is known to have very long waits at their rental counter in Orlando Airport. I have signed up for Rapidrez and Fastbreaks so that I can skip the counter. Cross fingers!

I really wish National would just lower their rates, it's so painless there and the Emerald Aisle is awesome.

I just used my $30 bonus cash and got a standard thru Avis on priceline for $300.63 for 14 days. Bid $12 and they added $2.00 to my bid. So happy that someone posted on here about their success and I was able to duplicate it!

Thanks again Pigletto! My receipt says I saved 79% and I believe it! The rates were really high for 14 days!
