You'll have to pay a $30-$40 cab fare to get there, but you're still looking at $165 all-in. Make sure that the local location is open when you arrive!

YOU are AWESOME! Just my daughter and I with carry-ons - so the smallest car is fine! I would have never even considered that option. We get in at Noon - so I'm sure it will be fine.

Thanks again!!

Alamo's rates are finally down this morning. Got a full size for $135 all in for Dec 8-15. Used Alamo Insiders and $30 off VISA coupon.

Unfortunately, the only way to get a reasonable minivan rate thru National is to use the dreaded KLM code

Also for Dec 8-15, I can confirm this morning that Alamo rates are down. I booked a Compact for $139 using the Insider's code and the Birthday "free day on us" coupon.

Other than the Visa $30 coupon, does anyone know of any other Alamo $30, $25 or $35 coupons?

Thanks for inspiring me to double check...I just rebooked at Alamo for $94 for a compact 12/14-18. Saved another $23. I too used the birthday free day rental code that they sent.

Dear Santa ,

All I want for Christmas is one of these fabulous rates for a full-size car from December 23 to 30. I have been a very good girl all year .... or most of it anyway .

I promise to use the savings on my rental vehicle to help stimulate the American economy . This Canadian girl loves to shop at the Florida outlet malls.

Love,

Gina

Gina...I'll cross my fingers for you too! Outlet shopping was really the pull to get a car. I have visitation rights for a certain purse at Coach.

You can try the "taxi trick" with Budget. The Landstreet location is about 11 miles from MCO and a $25-$30 taxi ride. Using the two codes you are already using you can get a full size for $227.70 - $20. Add the $30 and you're at $247 all-in. I don't know if it's worth it for you to save $30 or not, but it's an option.

The idea is a good one, but we have a standard SUV with Budget (X474200 & MUWZ023) for $275 all in, which we can live with if nothing better comes along.

On our New Years week vacation, we got a Chevy HHR for $65 taxes included (7 day rental). The last week of August, we got an Impala for $115 all-in for the week. I knew Christmas week was going to be expensive.....I really did.....but hope springs eternal and I can't help hoping for rates like other folks are starting to see for early and mid December.

I am sure DH will be adamant to pick up and drop off at MCO, as that's "familiar". I also don't fly well (thank goodness for gravol and barf bags ) so the smoother the transition from plane to vehicle, the better. I am a royal pain in the rump!!!
