I love Priceline!

Just booked our car for our trip in December! Asking price for a full size (DH is very tall) was $55 a day, and got it for $13 a day! Never thought they'd take it but saved 60%!

Great job!

That is fantastic! I have used Priceline in the past for hotel rooms but never thought about using it for car rental. I will have to remember to check it out in the future.

Yeah I've used priceline several times for cars and always had pretty good luck - I think this was the best deal I've ever gotten. I figured I'd start off as low as I could and have some time to re-attempt a low price before the trip. Nothing like one stop shopping!

Yes, drop off and pick up at MCO. I was told instantly (took less than a minute to process) if it was accepted and also which dealer it would be. In our case it's through Budget. Just be sure you read all the rules!

I love Priceline but have been scared off lately by the addition of Advantage car rental.... such bad reviews I would be scared to get stuck with them!
Great price!

That's a very valid point- I didn't realize they were an option until after the fact. Their reviews are horrible! Luckily we got Budget!
