Your way too early if you're looking for Christmas week 2013 and late for this year. I agree with the PP, Priceline NYOP might wind up being your best option. Check all the codes rates and Hotwire before you bid. What dates? How many people?

We will be in Orlando from December 23 to December 30.

We have a standard SUV reserved through Budget. Using Travelocity public code X474200 and coupon MUWZ023, our total rate with all taxes and fees will be $277 when the coupon is applied upon return of the vehicle. A second spousal driver is allowed at no extra charge. They have small vehicles available using that code at a slightly lower price. They did have minivans at the same price when I booked, but it appears they are now sold out of that car type for my exact dates.

Have you visited the December 2012 car rental thread? (I am assuming you are going this year, and not in 2013):

Lots of great discussion going on about rates, codes, and coupons, depending on what type of vehicle you are seeking.
