I have reserved a compact (Ford Focus or similar) from EZ Rental Cars (in terminal) for $185.74 (8 days). I used the 5% coupon on their website.

Does anyone have any experience with EZ Rentals or Fox? I have thought of using them, but I am a bit nervous since I know nothing about these companies.

I'm looking for Jan 11-18th. I want either Hertz, Thrifty, Alamo or Enterprise. I won't use the ones that aren't in the airport, I have heard HORROR stories....

So if you have a promo code (I prefer Enterprise or Alamo as my first choices) I'd love to see what people have.

I rented in June from 8-15th with Alamo and thanks to the nice people on this board I got a promo code and paid $119 for a full sized for a week. Let's see if we can do better this time

Thanks in advance!!!!

I have heard that the cars are in pretty rough shape but I have never used them to know for sure. I have also heard they are VERY aggressive in their up-selling tactics, making you take the insurance etc

From Previous Experience

Hi Everyone, just to let you know. I follow this Jan Trans thread every year because i almost always go to WDW in January. And, best deals come out late November early december, prices just drop like crazy for a lot of dates, except for first week and may be spotty MLK weekend. I just keep logging on all of Nov 15 to Dec 25 to the boards here follow along- the go to the websites and see all kinds of deals.
I've had no problems with AVIS offsite, i was worried but it went smoothly.
Aveo for 7 days - $102 (no i'm not kidding) - so be patient, January is the best month to go!!!

I used Orbitz to rent a midsize size car from Firefly (apparently run by Hertz) for Jan 3-9, 2014 at $118.30 (no insurance added).

They are apparently opening next month and have a counter at the airport. I await the reviews from other renters!

I'm totally new to this.

Just kind of deciding we want a rental, too.

We're at Animal Kingdom Lodge Jambo for four nights; then off-site at JW Marriott Grande Lakes for one night (this is due to stupid planning on my part, we have an extra night); then cruising for four nights from Port Canaveral.

Does anyone know if it's possible to rent at Orlando airport, incoming, and then return the car in Port Canaveral, before the cruise?

Our dates are Jan. 21 - 26. (Not including the cruise portion.)

Thanks, y'all!
