Not sure on what size car or your budget, but I put your dates in carrrentalsavers and came up with $228 total for Dollar, compact car (the 2nd set of dates)
Thanks! Will have a look at carrentalsavers. Never used them before. For this rental I am looking at the least expensive option, so probably a compact or economy, howver if a bigger car is only a dollar or two more each day, I'd probably take that.

Thanks for the heads up! When I checked this morning it was still showing the $183. I do have 2 extra hours, so maybe that's where the difference comes in.

Alamo Midsize down to $313 for me - still not great. But I like to see it dropping! (Oct 31-Nov 10)

Rates seemed to have gone down a bit more this morning! I also got a coupon in my email for Hertz - $50 off a weekly if you are a AAA member.

"Only AAA Members can save $50 on a Weekly Rental at the airport in the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico and Mexico. Book a Hertz rental for vehicle pickup through November 15, 2012 with PC# 175420 to get the savings."

Changed my reservation, with budget. Upgraded to a intermediate SUV vs a compact for our family of 5. Final cost with taxes and coupon 182.00. for 7 days. Nov 14-21. Still hoping for something cheaper. I just keep getting caught up on having both of us being able to drive! Every time I find something cheaper, when I add the additional driver it way more expensive. Either way I can live with this price.

As much as I hate to do it, I am thinking we may end up using Magical Express for our upcoming trip. I am just having a hard time paying almost $200 for a small rental car for 8 days. I was trying to figure out why I had not booked anything, even in hopes of a lower rate, but I just can't bring myself to do it. Our trip is less than 3 weeks away and I have nothing at all reserved.

We have only used ME once and found we were just happier renting a car, but I don't know if I was $200 happier.

We leave in two weeks and I'm starting to think the same thing. Except for us, DME would just be one way from MCO to CBR. The only thing is we are also spending the last two nights over at Universal, so would have to have a town car or taxi to get us and our stuff over to Universal and then three days later get us to the airport.

Right now I have a compact booked for $242.31 (total) for nine days through Budget. However, I was just at WDW last month and paid $135.00 for a midsize through Alamo for that trip. Now it's twice what it was from the first week of Sept, for a smaller car yet. I was sure hoping they'd go down.

I called this morning and went ahead and booked ME, knowing that I could cancel if I did find a rental that was half way reasonable. I thought I remembered that three weeks out was the latest to be sure and get luggage tags, etc. At least we do have transportation now.

I was able to book a full-size with Dollar last night for $162 total for Nov. 16-23. This morning I rebooked it at $154. This was a city special. I'll keep checking as I prefer Alamo, but at least I've got something reasonable.

Last night I checked National for every week in November, Sat-Sat stay, and came up with $204 total, each week for emerald aisle (well, it shows mid-size). This was using the KLM code 8572130 and coupon NDA23A4BQ.

For my dates, it is $285 (10/31-11/10). I might pay the extra $100 and use it over my dollar reservation for peace of mind...still deciding what to do...

I just put your dates in carrentalsavers and Budget has an economy or compact for $274 total. It's not a huge savings, but every dollar helps! That was using BCD#D454300
