This is consistent with my experience.

have you ever compared it to the price of dropping the car back at MCO rather than Port Canaveral (assuming you picked it up at MCO)? its about $20 cheaper...

drop fees?

Would the drop fee be quoted in the total reservation price when booked? or does it magically appear somewhere along the way...when I pick up the car or when I drop it off?

I just booked a one way rental from Sanford and dropping at Canaveral and it doesn't show a drop fee unless I'm missing it on my confirmation. I just didn't want a surprise, but for the rate, I'm not sure it would matter.

I've never seen any "surprise" fees when I dropped off the car. The rate quoted was the full rate. I do agree that the rates vary based on drop off and pick up location. A rent and return to the LBV location may also be $20 more than MCO on a given date. MCO is usually the cheapest due to high volume and competition--if hotwire has ads for $12 per day car rentals, the big names have a harder time charging $50 for that same rental. But the discounters require a pick up and drop off at airport locations only and same location.

Bottom line--we look at what we need and work prices from there.

My original reservation was from Sanford, a few days at WDW and dropping the car off at the port. It showed now unusual fees. But I also need a car back from the port to WDW and then to Sanford. When I price this version, it did add a $35 one way fee that was line itemized out that wasn't on the first reservation. I guess it just pays to check many variations of locations and brands.

We have used Budget for the last 9 years from MCO, never had a drop off fee. We usually get a minivan for $60 or less.

I have a reservation for our cruise next year, no drop fee.
