Just booked for our March trip. $225 for 9 days including all taxes and fees is great. Hope it works out. Will be checking this thread for reviews in the next few months, also looking for info how they handle the tolls, seems some companies have better deals and fees that others.

How long has Hertz been on site? They used to be a mile or two up Seminole Highway?

So, if Hertz has been on site since 2010, any takers on a bet that Firefly is using the old Hertz off-site facility? (That would be the one on the west side of 436 (Semoran Pkwy) just about a mile north of MCO.)

Priceline has it listed as onsite, and there's a previous post who talked to Hertz' support who also said it was onsite, so I'll put my money on onsite.

That is now an offsite airport parking company.

I "bumped" to join and get it to the top for others who had not noticed the thread. Sorry if that is not appropriate

Every other recognized name was giving me prices in the $5-600 range and we have to keep the mini-van because we are travelling with two in car seats and my grandma so it would be hard to get three across in a regular backseat.

I guess I will see in a few weeks!
Well based on the above info it looks like QueenQueso is going to be the first guinea pig. We will be following right behind. I will try to remember to update the thread right after we get the car.

You don't have to apologize for doing anything, if you want to bump then go ahead and bump.
