We are staying offsite... are there rental car companies closer to the airport?

So we don't have to worry about how we'll get there.

Thanks for the tip. I just checked, and save $200 by booking a car at the Car Care Center instead of the airport.

Not too bad of a starting point. Length of rental 6 days 8 hours. I am a fast break member so I should be able to skip the counter.
Codes used BCD X474200 coupon MUPZ044

I just re-ran my dates using the Budget discount and coupon codes listed by the PP, but I'm still coming out better using the KLM Flying Blue code with National and my Entertainment Book coupon.

I will continue to watch and wait!

What is the coupon for? I got a decent rate with it but would like to know what the coupon is for and if I will actually need the coupon.

I should waited to ask the question until after I booked because my confirmation answered it. According to the rental, "MUPZ044 USD 40 Off Weekly/Paperless Coupon". I'll take it.

So far for 10 days, the cheapest I've found is through budget. Aug 19-30, fullsize car. $387. BCD W852871 and MUWZ020.

Question: Can you rent from the Car Care Centre if you are staying off site?
