We were given a Chrysler 200 in jan. what a piece of crap it was!! Even for the short amount of time we had it. Dh would not allow me to rent a standard this time because of the chance of being stuck with one again!

Picked up at 12 last night and the full size row was impala, altimas and camrys. We took an impala. We have 3 adults, 1 booster and 1 carseat. We fit and it wasn't bad at all, I was concerned. We got 2 27" suitcases, a 24", maclaren stroller, two carryons bags and a laptop in the trunk. I was surprised.

If you rent a standard at Alamo or National, you get to select from the full size row as there is not a standard row at MCO. You pick your own car there.

I'm pretty sure this is what we will end up with when we pick up at Cape Canaveral and I'm second guessing the luggage situation.

Thanks,
Gina
Loads of room in the trunk! It held two large suitcases, four small suitcases, and a knapsack. We thought it was plenty of space. I wouldn't worry.

Standard/full size cars are the lowest for my dates today that they have ever been....$139 taxes in, using the Insiders discount and the Visa coupon (8 day rental). We are still holding our standard SUV reservation ($285 taxes in) but these full size car rates are making it tempting to downsize and save $150! Today's rate for the standard SUV is almost $400 .

Standard/Full (Alamo) are matching the lowest price I've seen and booked. But at this point, I'd like to see them drop down at least a little bit just so I know it's possible!

Every time I think about not checking prices any more, I find myself checking!!! One of these days it will be lower!
