fair price to rent a minivan in the summer for a week?

I did a fast check and prices were $420 - $650 a week including taxes. I tried priceline at the equvalent of $375 a week and was declined.

I paid $215 with fees and taxes with national at the CCC in June. I had to keep checking for a while until I found a good deal.

Car rental prices are creeping higher. It seems that the car rental companies have reduced their fleet sizes, so the whole supply/demand thing is driving the price up.

That being said, we rented a mini-van from Alamo in January for $199/wk, and a mid-size car in February for $229/wk, so there are still deals out there, you just have to keep looking.

Oh, and I'm assuming you're talking Florida? If you are, I would start checking the rental car codes on Mousesavers, that's where we got the deal for the mini-van.

Using a code through mousesaver and a coupon from BJ Warehouse, we were able to get our mid-Aug. mini-van rental for $302 with taxes and fees. The price without the code/coupon was over $600. We use Alamo each year since they are at the airport and if they don't have the exact van you can get one from National.

ccc is the Car Car Center that is just outside the Magic Kingdom.

Mousesavers is a great source of car rental codes. You just have to plan on spending an hour pluging in your dates and times with different codes until you gete a good one. Have paper handy.

I also suggest tweaking with your times... say instead of putting a 830 pm pick up time put 9 pm.. sometimes just a simple change like that can alter the price significantly.

I used the same code and got $268 with taxes 6/8 - 6/15. I recommend trying this, although I did book almost 3 weeks ago,
