Its because of the holiday weekend. Thankfully she was able to extend me and gave me the rate of $14.00 a day which is what my current rental rate was. I figured I would get the going rate and have to pay a higher rate.

Well that worked out nicely

What shocked me about that weekend being sold out is that EVERYTHING is sold out. Not just a few types of cars. Which means there are people out there actually paying some of the ridiculous rates we're seeing
You'd think there would be some of the Premiums and huge SUV's left. But nope.. nothing. That's crazy. I don't even think I saw that at Christmas

I have been told previously that supply is tight in Florida in February due to Daytona & cars being booked up for the race as well as President's week, which doesn't help any of us.

Makes sense ,I'm sure they move a bunch of cars up to Daytona too because normally there isn't a huge supply of cars at the airport here. It's just lucky the Daytona 500 is late this year (Feb 24), that's the worst time although there are preliminary races leading up to it.

Things were real tight at LAX at Christmas this year too. Fortunately, I got a good rate & rented early, but when I checked back later it was down to just one company left with cars.

This weekend is the start of a VERY busy week at Disney. MCO is flooded with Daytona 500 race fans, twirl mania (baton twirling) is held at Disney, Presidents week, New England states have winter break - that is if they are not snowed in and able to get to Disney, I saw a huge medical convention at CSR.

What I found too is that if we could not extend our rental car, that we would get a car from one hotels near DTD. However they too where sold out!

I haven't read through all of this but wanted to chime in that Dollar has/had a deal on premium cars for those who need a larger vehicle. $40 per day. Picking mine up at Sanford airport 2/18.

Alamo MCO rates just dropped for 2/14-2/17....I think. I am scheduled to fly into Tampa. But another snow storm is coming to my area so I am trying to hedge my bets in case I have to change our flights. Full size car for three days for $99.00. Not sure what it was, but Tampa cars are three times that still.

Try splitting your reservation picking up at one location then returning and picking up at another location. That's what gave me a mini van for $290 and a compact for $226 for 5 days.

This is true. With Alamo if I choose to pick up at The Dolphin and return to MCO instead of pick up and drop off at MCO it drops the reservation cost down a few hundred.
It still doesn't touch my $250 rental with Enterprise, but it might be helpful to some of you still looking. Try the WDW Car Care Centre location with Alamo as well for pick up or drop off.

Yes, that is where I got the $99 for three days rate...MCO p/u with a Dolphin drop off. Now lets just hope SW doesn't cancel anymore flights out of ISP!

Got my Dollar full size back in August for $355 for 8 days. We are arriving in FL on Friday if we can get out in between snow storms. Can't wait!

I am just outside of Buffalo so I haven't seen that there are more storms coming. I hope everything turns out for those of you leaving soon!

2-4inches expected overnight...possibly up to 8. Snow to stop at 5 am. Our flight leaves at 6:50. I would not be too concerned except for two things. Today is the first full day SW has flown out of ISP since the blizzard and there is no availability on any flight to MCO or Tampa until nest week!
