Using those codes, I got a rate of $232.50 for your times & dates. That is for a mid-sized car. That includes the unlimited miles, insurances, etc. In order to use the Emerald Aisle, you have to reserve a mid-size car. When you arrive at the airport you head directly to the Emerald Aisle to select whatever car you want It is so much easier than dealing with some other company where you have to go to the desk and go thru the whole process of them trying to sell you their coverages, re-fueling options etc.

If you have anymore questions feel free to ask
So I can't reserve a Van per say? We have to have one
I'll have to register tonight and see what I can get it to come up at, I just wanted to make sure I"ll get a van though, we have 6 people in our group

If I book a midsize at 232.50, will it still be the same price when I get there, if I am bumping it up to the van?
Sorry to be a PITA

You aren't being a PITA

You can reserve any class of car but you can't use the Emerald Aisle unless you reserve a midsize vehicle.

I just checked your dates with codes posted earlier and a midsized SUV is $257 and an minivan is $335 with National. Keep in mind that those prices include all taxes and fees as well as full loss damage waiver and supplemental liability insurance.

Can I ask why you need a van? I think many people don't realize how much the trunk of a midsize or fullsize vehicle can really hold

I think the poster needs a van cause she has 6 people and almost all our cars only seat 5.

If you book a midsize and are an Emerald Club member, you will be able to select off the Emerald Aisle. If you need a mini van, book it and it will be an Emerald Reserve reservation. You will pay what your reservation says.
If you book a midsize at that amount and get there and take a mini van, you will be charged the difference in price.
Read the program outline on the National page.

Sorry - missed that part. They will definitely have to book a vehicle class capable of seating 6 then. (There are many people I see say they have to have a minivan when they only have 4 people. I never understand that!)

Ok just signed up for everything, finally got the 335 pricing. But I still have EZ rental at 249 - so I'll hold onto that one until I see someone else hopefully come down closer to that.
Thanks for the help all.
How often should I be checking car prices?

We are picking up a minivan (6 of us) on 9/25 (MCO) and returning it on 9/29 to Port Canaveral. $185 including all taxes / fees (but no insurance). Enterprise Rent a Car

also, might I suggest Autoslash.com. You give them your reservation information and they search the car rental sites each day looking for a lower rate. Our minivan rate was initally $290 a month or so ago, and now we are at $185.

You can book via their website, or book elsewhere. I think they will rebook you automatically if you book the initial reservation through them, but you have to adjust your booking if you didn't.

They have 2 companies Payless and SIXT at MCO. I guess it would be fine if you only want those companies but that's not a really good tool if you ask me.

If you can't find one searching here, it's easy to google for an upgrade coupon, often double upgrades can be found

if renting over a weekend look for that category
