When you are going through a booking process, look for 'City Special' link in the car listings. Click that and see what the prices are.

It says that there is an upgrade on the Vacation Outlet website, but I don't see it when I make a fake reservation. Honestly, I would pay $28 to not rent from Fox but that's just me.

Today I got a standard at Alamo for 12/19-27 for $172. It was through carrentals.com. No code or coupon. The price on Alamo's site for the same time frame was over $400.00.

I went to car rentals.com and found a standard-size from Enterprise for $194.03 for 12/7-12/15. My husband wants to wait until the first of November to book anything. His hesitation is that the map I have of MCO implies that Enterprise is off-site, so he wants to wait and see if Avis will drop their prices. He gets a company discount from them. (Btw, Avis was listed at $470-something, and National for $550 for the same type of car.)

ETA, compact was at $149.
I now have an Enterprise standard (not sure if that is the same as Alamo/National, making it full) at $189. 12/4-12

Enterprise is in the garage, with Alamo and National.

You should ALWAYS book and reconsider later.

This was a great lead but the rental comes out over $300 when I went to book. I think it is probably because I am picking up early and dropping off late so it is hitting me with an extra day. .

But it is a better deal than some of the other sites I have checked for sure! I would pay 30 more like you to not use Fox! But I won't pay over $300 to rent a car. we will be riding the magical express before we do that!

Thank you so much! I hope that site helps someone because the rates are decent!!

I am guessing that the Vacation Outlet discount is open to everyone? (it looks that way from the site, but thought I'd better check to be sure)

I get a slightly lower rate with Dollar using that discount than with Budget, so I may just change my reservation....................every few dollars helps, right?

OK Dis friends; I booked a standard through Alamo last week using BJ's code and the Alamo e-coupon posted by Dan for $165.43. I just checked the site to see if there was a price difference and there is now a notice that the coupon is not valid due to a black-out date. When I pick my car up will they honor the confirmed reservation?

I booked a premium car for $223 for 12/15-22 through carrentals.com for Enterprise. No idea if that is good or not, but the cheapest I have seen. We really dont need a premium car either, but that was the cheapest for some reason. Just wanted to get something booked!!

Two days ago the $35 coupon worked, now I am also getting the blackout message. I did try the AD9738AAI for $20 off and AF5244aaf for a free day and they both worked. Alamo is still higher than the National rate of $215.77 so I will keep trying. My rental is 11/29 to 12/7/2012.

I just modified my reservation with Advantage -- I had a standard from 12/1 to 12/8 for $133, just got it down to $127 with today's pricing. Really pleased with the price, just wish it wasn't with Advantage! But I can't justify Alamo or National for ~$150 more for that week. Just not finding anything even CLOSE to the Advantage rates with any of the more reliable companies.
