I had a car reserved with enterprise 2months ago, looked tonight and it was $40/week cheaper.
Needless to say this girl is saving a little more $$

btw.. I asked this somewhere else too, but maybe you guys can help me... it is okay to rent from an airport when you arent flying in right? Airport isnt that far from me and its cheaper than any other office.

OKay.....I need a rental car from March 21st-March 31st and I am not getting any good deals anywhere near how good you guys are getting. Where do you put the codes in - I don't even see that? I am probably just blind, but I need help!

For National - after entering your dates, click on the View Additional Fields line - this will give you the option to enter a discount code. You enter the code under the Contract ID section. Using the KLM discount code(8572130), I came up with $314 for a midsize with your dates. To use the KLM discount you are supposed to be a member of Air France's frequent flier club (Flying Blue). It is really easy to join and I have never been asked to prove that I am a member when using this code.

WDWPooh - you can rent from the airport without flying in. I never enter my flight information in when I am reserving a car. They never ask questions.

Wow - that KLM code just cut my National quote in half! The only thing that throws me is that all the liability insurance is included for that price. I didn't even tick those boxes off when I was getting my quote. Is there a catch to this thing that seems to good to be true?

That's because the code is intended for European-based renters, not Americans. There's nothing to say you can't use it, but if you get in an accident, it could get ugly.

I reserved a car through National Emerald Aisle a few weeks ago but rates are horrendous for full size (over 500$ with taxes and fees;March 3-10). Last 2 times to WDW I really enjoyed the convenience and speed of Emerald Aisle but price is just too expensive this time.
I checked others and Dollar seems to be best bet right now (around 180$). I'm just wondering if it is worth it to join their loyalty program for faster check in? Can I do this after having reserved?

Thanks.

I booked Enterprise a few weeks ago (thru Costco) for about $110 for Mar 8-13, now its over $400...yikes.

I know Enterprise and Alamo/National are the same company...is the rental experience with Enterprise similar to Alamo (kiosk, pick your car, etc.)?

Having gone in March for several years now, here's my advice: look around and book your best deal. However, DO NOT lock into anything (no prepay, no Hotwire, etc.). Rates are high now for March, but they will be volatile. You have to stay vigilant; the best deals I've seen are usually 5-14 days out... When you get that close, sometimes the rates change several times even in one day. Be patient, we've got over a month before the real rate hunting begins (but pay attention to my first point: book something now too...you never know)

Unless is just happened very recently, Enterprise and Alamo are not the same company.

Enterprise, National & Alamo are all owned by the same company (Enterprise Holdings)

Budget rental deal

Isn't a BCN # tied to an individual's account?

No, this BCD # is a public travelocity code with Budget. I had no trouble using it and I found using this code with Budget the cheapest for a mini-van!
