Would this be a good price for a minivan?

Going to WDW for 10 days in June 2013, 6 of us in our party, 3 adults and 3 children (13, 5, 2). Getting a vacation home from AllStar Vacation Homes for 9 nights and they are offering a "FREE" rental car which is not free by any means since they are offering an intermediate car and we need a minivan so we have to upgrade. I plugged in the numbers and it comes out to $250 plus tax and whatever other charges the car rental place (Enterprise) hits us with. So I'm going to budget at least $300 to $350? for the whole deal of the "free" rental. I'm just wondering if we could do better on our own. Anyone out there that has rented a minivan that can give me some feed back on whether they think we can do better than this? My daughter will be the driver (she is over 25) and is a member of Enterprise, Budget, National but has not used them yet and this will be the first time we rent a car in Florida. I'm also getting the Entertainment book for the coupons. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

About $300 is a great price for a mini-van these days. If you go to travelocity or expedia you can compare prices between all the rental car companies in one search.

You are so RIGHT! I went back and checked with travelocity and priceline and the prices were outrageous, over $900 for the minivan for 9 days! AllStars is really giving me a deal. Thanks for the advice it helped make up my mind.
