I was able to get a good deal through National Emerald Aisle from 2/2-2/10 for $235 using the KLM code and a coupon code. Not bad. I am hoping to have it come down a little bit more but will be ok with this deal.

Picking up car at Disney Car Care Center, Alamo. Dropping off at MCO.
Feb 9-16. Visa cardholder rater= $245.45

I would rather rent at MCO and drop off at MCO, but the rates are just too high right now.

You will score the best rates closer to your travel date. The best deals can be found 7-10 days before your trip. Thats because rental companies will release their last minute rental rates usually on a Tue or Wed each week.

Unfortunately I haven't found that to be the case at all for our last 3 trips (August 2011, May 2012, and August 2012). I stalked rental rates like a hawk and the best rates were always found somewhere around 2 months out each time. They did in fact get low as the trip got closer but never as low as the rate I got at 2months to 6 weeks out. For our August 23rd trip I specifically remember the date I booked the lowest number was the 4th of July. It shot back up the next day and never got quite that low again.
YMMV.

So, it's time to start looking for February. Right now I can't get anything reasonable at all. I'm in the 350 range for a compact (not happening). So I'll keep checking.

I can't believe how high the rates are for the first week of February!

Last year, we went the last week of January and paid under $75 for a week for a Jetta.

Guess I'll just keep looking

Look at Dollar.com. They have a special city rate for February that is MUCH lower than anything else I found.

They will come down. How much is anyones guess though. They were like this for my late August trip which was unusual but I got it down to 200 with Alamo for the 10 days about 7 or 8 weeks out. So it's time to start watching every day and when you notice rates start to fluctuate check several times per day.

I am having trouble finding coupon codes that are good for 2013. Most of them expire at the end of the year.

I just booked a mini-van for 8 days = $340 all in. Thank you!!

Does anyone think I can do better than $340 for a mini-van, or should I just be happy and stop looking?!?

It's hard to say. We've never paid more than 200 the two times we rented minivans and both times were for 10 days. I would keep looking but there's no guarantee. People will post the deals on this thread once they pick up
