Well, when I booked a midsize with Alamo way back in April or May the rate was over $550 for Nov 14-23. I finally got my National EA down to $305.57 using the KLM code (I know there has been some questioning of this code but KLM flies out of our airport so I feel comfortable using it). I've kept that one since I could possibly get something bigger than the midsize although we really don't need it.
On Monday, Alamo had a premium for $277.78 and the midsize was over $600. So I booked the premium. Today it went down to $244.39. Still higher than I'd like but it's starting to move i the right direction! Got this reate with my Insider number and the AD2359FDF coupon. The special FL code actually ws higher for me and will not accept the coupon.

That is a great deal on Alamo! $244 for 10 days? Must be one of those specials that appears at the top.

Today, Alamo, even with insiders, ID, and coupon, is over $600 for my dates (10/31-11/10). National is $285 with KLM code, booked six weeks ago. Today is $305.

Nope, this wasn't one of the Hot Deals or Specials. I think it has more to do with inventory and reservations at MCO. Renters may be looking for something that's more fuel efficient. There were midsize SUV's and 7 pass vans cheaper than economy, compact and midsize also. If I try to pick up at the Car Care Center and return to MCO the rate for the premium is really high.

Sorry - my wording is wrong. Oops! I was just referring to what you said - when the car shows up at the top of the list on the car selection page.

I have often seen SUVs come up there too. Fuel efficiency makes sense!

Is anyone having any luck with end of November deals? Right now we have a compact with Dollar at $233 and one with Advantage for $198, am thinking that might be the best we can get.

I have a full size from Dollar for $131.31 (including all taxes and fees) for 11/23-29. Booked it a week or two ago - didn't use any codes, just the City Special. That's the best I've seen so far, but I keep checking. I still hold out hope that rates will drop as we get closer.

Wow that's a great deal, our dates are almost the same 11/23-11/30. I'll keep checking

I called Hertz again this morning. For two weeks, with AAA discount and $30 coupon was $610 for a full size car. I think I'll call Dollar for the heck of it.

Me too. Dollar. With a city special, no code. I booked it for the last week of November, compact car. Around $153.00. I got it because people on this board were talking about the great deals that day. Keep checking!

Just called Dollar - the closest location doesn't have the city special and they do not have AAA discounts. It came to about $616 for two weeks.

Ugh! That is a lot of $$. I guess I would keep checking dollar website daily to see what you can get? I did check avis today, just for the heck of it, and it came to around $270 for 8 days, compact car from Orlando airport if you choose "pay now" option. Don't know if this info will help. Just letting u know. Good luck.

The city special comes and goes. Check daily.

They said it wasn't available for my specific pick up location, the next closest Location is too far out of our way to be worth it.
