Just giving this a bump since I am back on the hunt for a reasonable rate. I haven't seen anything I am even willing to hold for hope of a better rate

It's still way too soon, but if nothing else pans out I'll use Pricelines "Name your own price" feature again. It didn't turn out too bad last time and I have some bonus bucks to use as well.

What size of a vehicle are you looking for? I can keep my eyes peeled for you too.

Gina you are the best

I think we'd be fine with standard and up. It's just the four of us, but we'll have 3 suitcases and some carry on bags. Usually in a smaller vehicle one suitcase ends up between the kids but that's fine since really it's only from the airport and back.
We drive a midsize at home since my husband commutes so far. We do well in a smaller vehicle but a larger one is always a nice treat for a week

ETA) In the August heat it is a definite bonus when the kids don't need to be touching one another lol. I am hoping to stay in the $250 range though that may be wishful thinking!

What dates are you looking for? I am picking up a car from the Car Care Center (Alamo) on Aug. 28 and dropping it off at MCO on 9/2. I got a rate of $277 for a standard with a free upgrade using the Costco Code and Upgrade Coupon. I'm hoping for something better, but for now that's the best I've seen.

What is this code and do you need to be a member of anything to use it? I just priced out my ressie and got it down to $215 from $277. I just want to make sure it's ok to use.

Thanks!

Just to confirm....your dates are August 23 to September 2?

What are the pick up and drop off times?

Your dates are so close to mine, its easy to run your quotes when I check on updated rates for our vacay.

We get to Orlando at 6:30 and would probably drop off around 9a.m.

Only if you see anything Gina! Don't do any extra digging for me

That code takes $200 dollars off my the quoted price for me!!!
It still comes in at 300 for a standard but I'm sure I can find a coupon to add to it

I'm hoping to find a coupon too. Right now they all expire before August. Hope to find something soon.

Good Luck!

Yes..if anyone knows if you need to be a member or where this code originates from...because I just saved $420.49 on a 2 week rental in August...also used a coupon from BJ's for a midsize to standard upgrade!! Was $822.32....now $401.83!! Hope it's legit...

Woo hoo! Just got my rental down to $233.74 for a mid-sized SUV for 8 days with Alamo using the Vroom Vroom code (thanks to the PP for sharing!) and a $25 coupon from the Entertainment Book.

The rate includes all taxes, unlimited mileage, collision damage waiver, and extended protection .

I guess I can go ahead and cancel my National ressie.
