I guess it depends on when you are going and what type of car you are looking for. My deal with Budget for an Intermediate SUV is over $200 cheaper for 12/8-12/14

I must be missing the boat because I'm not getting anything under $260 for Dollar 12/8-12/15 at TPA - so frustrating

and I've checked multiple times this week at different times of the day, middle of the night, etc.

With Lock Low & Go rates, you don't know the size until you get there. Dollar picks it for you. It will be a compact or larger. (For $7.20/week more you can book a Standard.)

That's the part I can't do... With car seats and strollers... If we had a compact could make it interesting... That 2nd kid really added some $ to our planning!

My dates are 12/1 - 12/8 and the rate I got was over $300., so I then entered 12/1 - 12/9 and it dropped to $109. Apparently, the key is to go over a 7 day period.

lock and low looked great (84 per week for midsize) but after fees it's 190.00 so I'm sticking with advantage for now which is still 138.00

We are traveling December 30-January 13. We will need a minivan. Can anyone suggest to me where to start looking for the best rates? Thanks for any help!

Be aware that you cannot return the car a day early and still get that rate. It will revert to the higher rate.

Start with www.carrentalsavers.com and coupons over at http://www.mousesavers.com/transport...car-discounts/ . A minivan over NYE will be very, very, very expensive. You will definitely want to separate you rental into chunks so you can take advantage of lower pricing in January. Using the Travelocity code X474200 for Budget will give you a rate of $302 (with tax) for your first week. You should be able to do better for the remaining time with other codes.

Yes, I know. I didn't say I was doing it - just trying to figure out how some were getting so much lower of a rate.

Good! I didn't want to to have a nasty surprise. There was a weird National code going around last year that was cheaper for a 9-day rental than it was for a 7-day rental.
