Using Travelocity public code X474200 with Budget, your price for a full size is $296.99. If you also apply coupon code MUWZ023 ($25 off), your price upon return should be $271.99.

You can get an SUV or minivan for about $5 more.

For quoting purposes, I used an assume pick up and drop off time of 12 noon.

Budget is also nice because a spouse can be added as an extra driver for free. And you can sign up for Fastbreak (also free) and skip the line at the counter.

Actually got a better rate on full size with budget using the Wendie code. Minivans are definitely cheaper with the Travelocity code. We actually have one of each reserved since we have a large group this trip.

Thx!

I think I may be a dummy to this rental car thing as I have never rented a car in my life. I have been checking prices daily for months but don't see the deals you all are getting. I did just find a deal with no codes from Dollar directly from their site. Dec 11-18th. Pick up at noon and drop off at 5:30pm. Total after taxes shows $169 for a premium. Is this good or is Dollar a bad one to rent from? I need to jump on something but am hesitant because I don't have experience with this stuff.
Thanks

My biggest piece of advise is: Book now, waffle later. Unless it's a pay in advance rate you can always cancel if something better comes along. FTR, the Dollar car rental is perfectly OK. Oh ... and that's a GREAT rate for 8 days so you are NOT a dummy!

I just checked that rate with Dollar and the base rate is $169. The total inc taxes and fees is actually $239. I don't know if the additional driver is important to you but Dollar charges an additional $10/day. With Budget using wendie code D454300 and E-Coupon MUGZ029 for $30 off you can get an intermediate SUV and free additional driver for $208. Coupon is applied when return vehicle. If you are a costco member you can get a premium with enterprise for $229 inc taxes and free additional driver.

If you go back a few pages there is a discussion on advantage but to some it up someone just recently used them and had a good experience. They said just make sure you check the car over some cars have lots of scratches or dings. We got a great rate and will be using them Dec1-6 for $87ish total

I just came back to report the same thing. The Dollar website is a little confusing since it says "$149/week, $169.99 total" but that's because Becky is renting for 8 days and not 7. She still needs to click through to "Step 4 Book the Car" to see the real total with taxes.

Yeah, see I am a dummy. lol. I saw that a bit ago. Found a coupon code and it came to $209.82.
For the Budget one, won't I need the actual coupon email though? I am so lost on what to do.
I can't get the Budget coupons to work together.

Well.... I decided to use priceline and I hope I didn't make a big mistake. I went on and did a name my own price. I was rejected for a full size at $11.00 a day. Tried $13 and got it. Total price is $181.84 after taxes and fees through Avis. Is Avis an ok rental agency? I am super happy with this rate based on what I have been seeing even with coupons. My only worry is on Priceline a full-size car say's seats 5 with 4 pieces of luggage. On Avis it says seats 5 with 2 pieces.
