I currently have Dollar ressie for May 15th-18th. Its a total of a 4 day rental because of the hours. Dollar is 94.00 Budget right now is 115. I am thinking of sucking up the extra $$ for DH to be able to both drive. We prefer budget. I know many don't but we do! I am hoping for a price drop this weekend.

Check your Costco rates! I just booked a Fullsize car for 7 days out of TPA for $115 all inclusive with Budget. We don't rent often, but I thought that was pretty good! MCO rates looked pretty good to me as well.

Adding Compacts were $85, Intermediate $95 and Standard $105

Thanks! Just checked Costco and Enterprise has a minivan for May16-21 for $245. I had Alamo for $253 so the rates are inching down.

After taxes and fees, it was significantly cheaper at the Ottawa Hills location rather than the airport.
Thanks for checking........Still working the codes and numbers. Not coming up the same for me, but I am working on it!

So I've found a mini van for $265 from Alamo and Enterprise for $265 and from Budget and Dollar for $255.

Which would you choose? I know little to nothing about each company because we never rent a car. Pro? Cons? I want the easiest option, 2nd driver free (we are insiders and Costco) and possibly pick your car option.

I would normally say Alamo because I love using their kiosk and picking our car. But we rented a minivan with Budget last month - they have Chrysler Town & Country and it had a DVD player. The kids loved it!

Final price!!

Just wanted to let those still shopping know that are lowest price came 4 days out. We initially started at around $215 thru Alamo for a full size for 8 days. Started dropping about 10 bucks a day about 8 days out. Dropped twice on this past Tuesday and booked it using Insiders and Visa $30 off coupon. Final price $147.50 incl. taxe and fees.
Staying at SVR for a week and visiting the darkside starting tommorow.

Thanks for all your help.

I currently have a compact through Budget - May 8 - 18 - for $130.74.
ID - W852873
Q - MUGZ041
These are Costco codes.

There are only two of us, so I don't mind the compact and I'll get better gas mileage. Of course, when I rented a compact out of Sanford, they upgraded me to a Crown Victoria. Some compact!
