Have you looked at the Dollar city specials that is where I got my great $100 for 5 day rental for next week.

If you submit a rental for dollar when the chose of what car class appears there is also a yellow box that says city specials. Click on it.

Still in the mid to high $200's for Dollar even with city specials.

If not accepted, you can bid again in a day. But even $185 total I thought was great as the lowest I could find was through Dollar for $241. I'm through Avis (on site) and glad because they don't charge for spouse as an additional driver. I've done Priceline many times in the past and it always seems to be the best deal for me.
Geez, I hate to mention this but I submitted a bid for $127 ($15 per day plus fees) and it was accepted. Now I wish I had tried lower too!

Thanks.

I went onto the KLM website and joined the flying blue club so I'd have a card to show in case they ask.

I am having no luck for President's week. I have tried DOllar's City rates and nothing lower than $380 plus another $100 in taxes. I tried Priceline for $25 a day and got denied. Uggg.

I ended up renting a van thru Alamo insiders for for the first 2 days at $120. Then dropping off and re-renting (same location/day/time) for our last 3 days at $170. $290 for five days. Thats the best I could get. I paid $80 for 5 days last month for our Wdw trip............

Even with the KLM code and a coupon, I'm still getting prices over $400 for a compact car! Thanks anyway.

If you don't mind me asking is this for MCO? Presidents Week?
Wow. Sold out is surprising!
There are no city specials for my dates anymore. We're coming in on the tail end of Presidents Week (Friday night) and rented from Enterprise. I have a feeling it's going to be slim pickings since people won't have returned their week long rentals yet on a Friday night. Oh well, I think with Enterprise they assign you the vehicle so we wouldn't be able to pick anyway.

I have never done Priceline... If I bid at MCO, is there a chance the car rental place would be offsite from the airport? Or are they inside of the airport only? Thanks!

You will only get one of the major car rental companies when bidding on priceline and they are all located onsite at MCO.

Not surprising...why do you think all these big car rental companies want to merge & buy each other out? This lessens competition. With less competition they can keep rates high. People have started playing the book early & 'hope' rates come down game more & more. This does exactly the opposite, it lessens supply and rates stay high during high demand times. The only time rates come down is when demand is lower. We will start seeing this more & more with fewer car rental companies competing against each other. Remember Hertz owns Dollar/Thrifty and Enterprise owns Alamo/National. Avis/Budget are also owned by the same corporation. So basically there are only 3 major agencies competing against each other.
