Nope, your traveling at a great time of year !! Your just a little early yet on rental deals.. start booking at about 6 weeks out and then rebook everytime the price goes down.. which is often till about a week out. Our beginning of Sept. is just starting to move

Can you provide more details about how you ended up with this rate, codes, coupons, sites used, etc.?

I'd love this as well, as I have a quote of 236 from them. And we leave the 17-24th.

I just checked my code again and it's up to 288 - guess maybe try first thing in the mornings, I've done that the last 2 days and had better rates then.

Thanks so much. I figured out what I was doing wrong, dummy me , I am renting out of Charlotte, NC airport and not Orlando. I should have made that clear. I do so appreciate your help though. Nice folks on Disboards !!!

I have to rent a car for one day to take the kiddies ( dh, ds x2) to Legoland. What is my best option. I would be ok with a small compact car as its only for the day

Well, all-in, with mandatory taxes and fees, Dollar and Thrifty are charging $280.

If the All-In price was $207 I would drop my full size Alamo rental (all-in for about $140) and get the van...but it would be nearly double for me to upgrade to the van.

As far as van rentals go, this looks to be the best price right now.
