Thrifty has their "Hot Rate" Compact for $125 per week, $443 with taxes for nearly 3 weeks. That's not outrageous.

One thing to remember about the reviews that the ones in 2009 where before Hertz bought them out and they were in financial difficulties. So that leaves 3reviews on the Orlando one and 2 not so good and 1 good. I guess I will play the odds.

I ended up with $158.00 total, December 1st-8th through Enterprise, which I can definitely live with. This was without a code or coupon or anything. I usually rent from Alamo but their price for my time frame is almost $400.00.

Finally seeing some deals for Nov 29 to Dec 9. Yesterday I got Alamo for $211. Today its way back over $400. Now I see I can get Advantage for $180. Does Advantage work like Alamo in that you can cancel it with no hassels at any time?? Thanks!

Yes, I have cancelled in the past when I found a better deal and have cancelled and rebooked. I hvae never used them in the past so I have no experience how they are. Mixed reviews but for the price I got for Dec 1-6 I couldn't help but use them.

Just book a second reservation with another company. If Advantage gives you too much of a problem, just walk away and take the next best reservation.

very true...once in the mco terminal i was in a very long line at dollar, and other companies came over and said they would honor the rate from dollar if we came to thier desk. pretty funny scene. hate to say it, but there is not a no show fee. last time we rented from alamo they were all out of almost all cars and we had to take a smaller one for the same price, im sure every compnay has their issues
