What size of vehicle are you looking for?

Our dates are December 23rd - December 30th, so we feel your pain. We have a standard SUV through Budget (using travelocity public code X474200) for $302 taxes included less a $25 coupon MUWZ023 for a final total upon return of about $277. I am beginning to think this will be as good as it gets.

Thrifty with no codes or coupons $117 including taxes for the Wild Car. I've never rented for a weekend, so not sure if this was a good rate or not...thanks for any information/advice!
I put in your dates and times and through Costco with Enterprise you can get a midsize for $113, standard $121 or fullsize $125 inc taxes. This also includes the free additional driver. Thrifty charges $10/day extra.

Yes, but your savings pays for half the fee for the card . I was a Costco skeptic but got my first card a year ago and I am now a convert .

I do have a costco membership and have rented at least 10 times through Costco but not once have I ever been asked to show the card.

Pick up on 12/20 - drop off 12/25

I have a feeling something was up today. I checked the flight this morning - and from the time I decided to make the trip tickets went up $50 each. Then, I looked at Expedia today - came home to make the final decision and the same package I looked at went up $170! Yikes! This cheap trip has moved to expensive!

Thanks for any help - I am a Costco member, just not sure where to find, or where to insert any codes.

Here's what I would do, but it's a PITB. I would take a cab to a local Budget location and book a car from there. Go to the Costco booking engine and enter zip code "32807". Select the 6363 E Colonial Drive location for your pickup and MCO as your drop off. It's about 10 miles from MCO. You'll get a rate of $125 all taxes, etc for a mid-size. You'll have to pay a $30-$40 cab fare to get there, but you're still looking at $165 all-in. Make sure that the local location is open when you arrive!
