I just checked Enterprise again for me and it's gone up $4 since last night! I'm glad I'm reserved already and that they are price matching my local Hertz.

I just posted this on the October thread but thought it might help you September travelers too !


Rates for my dates in late October are still high, but I have also been looking for my friends who are going the beginning of October, just got them a 7 day rental (Compact) at Dollar using KISS2 for a total (including taxes) of $154, this is the best i've found so far ! the larger vehicles were priced similarly !

This was even cheaper than the city special

If you go back a couple pages you'll find a post by me asking about a certain coupon code around 8/30. I'm sorry but I cannot remember exactly what it was. Anyway, that's the code I used.

Is that a good rate? It's the cheapest I've found so far. If anyone knows a way to get a better rate, please share with me. Because any $$$ saved is a great thing!!

Also, did I read correctly that there are no standards at MCO and that if I book a standard I actually get a full-size. There will be 2 adults and 2 children. The only luggage we will have is a carry-on each plus a couple smaller bags. We don't need anything too big and there's no reason to pay for more than we need.
They do not have a standard area at MCO for Alamo/National, however, they do have standard cars, they just mix them with the full size cars. If you book a standard size car, you will be directed to the full size area.

No you don't need it to book, but, you should have it in case you are asked for it. It does happen.

I can't believe how much Alamo is right now and so glad I got a car booked a couple weeks ago. We have a economy MCO-Car Care Center 9/8-9/11 Insider code and BJs $20 coupon and it is a total of $45... Basically since then it is running $145 I was hoping it would come down a tad since we need 2 cars but not looking good. $145 just seems crazy high for 3 days so stoked I got it for $45

It seems like if you book thru the Costco website, Costco.com, they do ask for your ID #, and they have you sign up for a Costco Travel ID as well. I am a member, so I did this and got a great rate for Sept. (my Oct rental is still sort of high). I like using the Costco site, it compares many different travel companies at once.

Other people (members and non-members) sometimes find out the Costco codes, and use them on the actual company websites to get Costco quotes. Some say doing this yields lower price quotes sometimes. Clearly the Costco rates are meant for Costco members, and the rental companies could ask for your Costco ID. (but they rarely do).

You are rarely going to get a great deal 2 days before pick-up because it is typically business travelers who book last minute. They aren't as price sensitive as leisure travelers. If I were you I would be very pleased with an inclusive rate of $45 for 3 days

You are absolutely correct. Yes, they are for members, however, anyone can access them and many people do just that and take the code and coupon codes to the company websites.

I am totally fine with the price we have but I always hear how a couple weeks before it drops and that hasn't been the case at all. I was just surprised on how high it was and stayed at that price without moving at all. $45 is fine for me

actually that is how it usually works during slower times at MCO.. this year never did go down as much as it has in previous years (our 6th sept. trip) but I did manage to knock my full size with Alamo down to $114.05 total for a 9 day rental and that was 2 weeks before we leave. Never give up

Try the costco Id 7014627 and coupon ad2359fdf for Alamo. My rate is 254.00 for a full size for 15 nights. I think that is a pretty good rate.
