Wow, thanks for the tips on Dollar. I just booked a full-size from Nov 11-17 for $75.85. I didn't put in any other codes, but clicked on the city specials.

Started with Alamo and National, both at over $500. Then Alamo went down to $307, now at $290. Somewhere in there I think I got budget at around $270. Now I'm with Dollar at $195. These prices are higher than others on here since I arrive 10/31, which throws off the amazing deal some have found at advantage, and for staying 3 days extra over a week (which some companies charge up to $40/day extra). These prices are for a mid-size, 10/31-11/10.

Oh, and today, the city rate for Dollar for me is $78 more than my lowest quote. So checking rates often is important. Sometimes a good offer is only available for less than 24 hours.

Anyone know if Dollar is in the airport? Our flight gets in late and I'd prefer to just grab our car and go, and not worry about a shuttle.

NM... I see Advantage is still cheaper! (I'm at $96.30 total including taxes and fees)

Thanks everyone. When we booked about 2 months ago we got a rate of $311 for two weeks with a full size car. As of last week they came in at just under $600!!!! It's amazing how much the prices have changed!

yes, all MAJOR car rentals are right at the airport
The rental car companies are located in Terminal A and Terminal B on the Ground Transportation Level (Level 1).
