Thank you!

I just used the U240720 code and booked a Ford Escape for $62.60 from MCO and then got the same vehicle for $49.18 from PC to MCO for our October cruise.

What the heck?!? With Budget, the cheapest I could get was $113 for a minivan from PC to MCO! We had it less than 2 hours!! I seriously tried every coupon code online I could find and nothing worked! Where was this thread six weeks ago?! Congrats to all getting great deals!

Our rate isn't too bad... It's the car seats that cost soo much.

Thank you Carmie!

That code just saved me $80 on the one way rental.

You ROCK!!!

If you have AAA--book through their website for the cheapest fares. Also, AAA gives a free carseat through Hertz. Saves a ton of $$! Alternately bring your carseat/booster seat and check them curbside. They don't count against your carry-on or checked baggage.

Also try a site like www.kayak.com. Unfortunately any one-way rental will tack on about $30 each way just for the privilege of being one-way, ugh.

I'm also wondering this. From Google Maps, it looks like Budget is 4 miles from the Disney terminal. Do they shuttle for free to the terminal?

All of the car rental places are on Astronaut Blvd (also called A1A or Atlantic Blvd depending on where you are). They range from 2 to about 5 miles away.

Hertz is the closest to the port and is in the parking lot of the Marriott Residence Inn. Budget is about a mile or so from there and so on.

The car rental places are:

Avis, Hertz, Budget, Thrifty/Dollar, Enterprise/Alamo and National.

This was posted on another board in this forum:

Enterprise/Alamo/National are all the same company. However, their rentals are handled differently.

Top of the heap is National, which is the company's "business" brand. If you join National's Emerald Club, you can go straight out, pick your car, and check out at a booth on the way out.

Next best is Alamo, which is the company's "leisure" (vacation) brand. You can use a kiosk in the terminal (super easy, no line) to check in, and then go get a car in the garage. Or you can join the frequent rental program and (in Orlando, at least) go straight to the garage, pick your car and check out at the booth.

Enterprise is mainly for insurance rentals (when your car is in the shop) and low-end leisure rentals. I personally have had bad experiences with that brand -- dirty, dented cars, etc.

Yes, they all have a shuttle to take you to the port.

Just wanted to thank everyone for sharing this information. I hadn't really considered a one-way rental car for our cruise, being that one-way rentals are usually quite spendy and hard to find. I was able to book a minivan from MCO to the port for $85, which is much cheaper than the $130 private transfer would have been for our party of 7. We will have much more freedom this way, and it's cheaper. So thanks!

Waiting may not be the way to go...... I can't return a car to Port Carnaveral for my cruise in February because no one is accepting cars. (And I called all the car agencies and they all said the same thing). If I want a car, I will have to park it while on the cruise and return it to Orlando.
