Last minute specials have been posted and again MCO was not included. I suspect the Columbus Day weekend or high occupancy for this timeframe would be the reason. 16 days to hope for a lower rate. Actually everything is even higher now.
Yep - everyone seems to be higher today except for National who remains the same. I'm quickly losing hope of any change in rate.

We traveled last year to WDW in October. My car rental rate dropped by almost $100 the day before we were scheduled to leave. This year we are traveling again in October and though I have booked for $160 10/14-10/21 I hope that rate drops as well

Hi all. Our trip is Fri. 10/26 (9p) - Tues 10/30 (9a). Using entertainment book code and free weekend day, I had a midsize (EA) with national at $199. Just checked this morning and it dropped to $183.

Alamo remained very high for 4 day trip. ($230ish for midsize).

Also have a back up with dollar - no codes - for intermediate SUV at $173, but we would rather just walk out to the garage than wait in line...

If you join the Dollar Express you can go right out to the garage. I called Dollar and verified that, so we can get a full size car for 138 for 10/6-12 instead of 178 for mid size thru National. First time with Dollar so I hope it works out.

I just got a compact @ National for 10/13-17 for $157 using the Emerald Club contract id & free weekend day coupon from BJs (NF44Z5JDL).

I thought Dollar's Express was just to help eliminate some paperwork at check in? I didn't think you just bypassed the ck-in. If that's right that'd be great- our ressie's with Dollar right now.

If it's anything like National/Alamo's deal like that, you don't have to check-in inside the terminal but you'll still have to go to the photomat-type stand in the ramp where the cars are. They'll have your info ready there for you. Our rez is w/ Dollar this time too, so we'll soon see.

Thanks so much for posting this! I just checked this out and got a mid-size SUV for 10 days for $385, all taxes and fees included, which is about $100 less than the reservation I made a month ago.

On another note.....Wow, the prices for Alamo and National are sky-high right now. I have to guess that Columbus Day weekend is causing it, but just when I think my rate was high when I booked it, it's looking better every day. I'm 2 weeks away today and the car rates have only gone one direction and that is UP. I'll be checking up to the day before, as always.

My current rate is $470 for 15 days (so $235 a week)

How did you do that? When I put in the promo code, it takes away the city specials?

Funny - I still am getting the same rate thru National. Everyone else's rates keep climbing higher!

Alamo at Tampa has dropped drastically. The first ressie I made about a month ago for 10/3-10/7 was for $205 for an Economy car. It then dropped down to $125, then $110, and now it's down to $88 (those are with taxes included). I've been using the Alamo club ID and the VISA $15 off coupon.

Now, I'm starting to question whether we should stick with the economy car or move up to a mid or full size and spend either $94 or $97 respectively. I could even get a standard SUV for $126 right now.

It's just the 2 of us. We're staying in Clearwater, but we will be making a day trip up to Disney on Thursday. I think we'll be fine in the economy car (plus it'll do well on gas), but I always get that feeling that we should get something nicer.
