I received a response to my email regarding our rental with uscarhire and they assured me that we are booked with insurance. Now, I sent a follow up email inquiring as to whether this was a new policy and would it affect us in the future. I will update with their response, just in case anyone is considering using this company.
BTW, my car will be supplied by Alamo at MCO.

Be aware that most Dollar locations, including the Orlando airport location, charge a premium on additional drivers, even if they are a spouse or domestic partner. Typically the cost is about $10 per day.
Thanks.

I found it last week, by searching for rates for my dates, then it was in the car selection column, a button to click on to see City Specials.

We're 92 days out and want Alamo/National also. Please post back if you find anything good. We're going to need a minivan and probably a mid or full size.

Just got a rental from Dollar for $209 for 10/7-10/13 using the city special code! That includes all the taxes and fees... Just use promo code 622. It's $147.03 plus tax and fees=$209. That's for a compact

Okay, had to get something on the books. So I just booked with Dollar 10-5 thru 10-9 (plus two extra hours) for a full size auto, total of 162.74. Using the city deal link, which shows as promo code 832. This is the first sub $200 I've found so far. Just a few days ago Alamo was still over $300.

I wanted to sue Alamo/National too, but that Dollar deal was way too good to pass up, especially for a mini-van. I'm not going to cram us into a compact w/ all the stuff we have. Our last visit we trued a minivan becuase of all our "stuff" and it as AWESOME! We dind't even need to fold down the stroller, ever! It'll make our split stay easier too.

I fear the days of really cheap deals easy to find may be gone, like airlines are too. Not to say that they don't and won't happen, but regularly, I don't think so.

Just wanted to follow up on our dealings with uscarhire to date...

They confirmed via email that we were completely covered with their Silver Inclusive package. They even adjusted my rental dates a few days later when my flight info was ready and our dates needed to be reduced by one day. Then this morning I received an email stating that we would NOT be covered due to Alamo changing their policy in Jan and we didn't book our car until March. I have sent an email stating how dissatisfied we are at this point and I am waiting for a response.

Looks like we are going to have to use either our own insurance (a rider possibly) or my DH's MasterCard may have supplemental insurance available. DH is so adamantly against using our own personal car insurance because apparently here in Ontario we have the highest insurance premiums in North America and he is afraid that if something happens it will only get more expensive. I understand his concern, I don't totally agree with him, but all this means is that I am on the lookout for a cheap rental and possibly will end up paying for more insurance to supplement.

So frustrated!!
