Nov 22-28. Right now I have Budget x474200 code in use for 300 for mini van.
Not sure about Sanford - maybe there is a Sanford Q&A thread on the main transportation board? I've only flown into MCO so I'm no help! Sorry!

Alamo dropped for me today for 11/10-11/18. It was in the $400's and even $500's but I got a full size for eight days for $211.39 now using Southwest code and $20 off coupon. It's still more than the $139 I have reserved with Advantage but I'm thinking of going with Alamo anyway because it includes the additional driver and I know I'm comforable with Alamo. I made the mistake of reading online reviews of Advantage and now I'm a little scared to use them.

I am also nervous about using advantage. For the extra $ it is worth it to have a peace of mind.

Through Costco you can get a full size with Budget for $159 inc taxes and free additional driver.

Thanks. No Costco card. We are BJ's members and their price is the same as what I have.

I did apply the $30 Visa coupon instead of the $20 one on the Alamo site and got it down to $199.

I still can't get a Alamo rate that's not under $450.00.

My dates are November 24 - 29.

Can someone try my dates and see what you get. I need a full size for the 5 of us.

Are you renting at MCO and returning there? Do you have to rent with Alamo? I went to Hotwire and plugged in your dates to/from MCO and got $161.43.

Yes in and out of MCO. I have a full size booked at advantage for 149 with taxes. I'd rather use Alamo. I like not having to go to the counter.

I would wait another week or so. My best rate was found 2 weeks out. I'm still watching, but I doubt I'll find an 11 day rental for less than $180! Just keep checking every day.

We are going around the same time and it has been a struggle. But, I just tried the 8th for a week with Alamo (using BJ's and ad2338fdf) and got $146ish before tax. With Alamo try adjusting your times a bit. I get a better rate booking for an extra 1/2 hour.

are you paying with Master Card or Visa?
use the ID of 7015479(for M/C) or 7015504 (Visa) and coupon code of AD2335FDC(M/C) or AD2338FDF(Visa) and a full size comes down to $407.60 total with taxes and fees

You might want to consider a midsize SUV as its cheaper -$398 total

Hi,

I see people have posted that Alamo has an additional driver included. Is this correct? I tried to add this to my reservation and it is trying to charge me $9.99/day.

As well, to do the 'save time' option I wanted to add in the first driver however it won't let me do this as I made the reservation and I want DH to be the primary driver. I can't modify the last name section. Is there any way to get this fixed? Or do I need to stand in line at the airport?

You can get a minivan with Budget using travelocity code x474200 and e-coupon MUGZ029 for $30 off. Total is $265 inc taxes after e-coupon is applied when return vehicle.

Has anyone booked using the Entertainment 15% off contract ID code along with the two car class upgrade coupon code (also from Entertainment)? The codes are accepted and it comes up about $5 cheaper than just the regular Entertainment contract ID and two car class upgrade. I am nervous because the 15% off contract ID indicates "Offer cannot be combined with any other coupon or discount". When I try to use the similar SUNPROMO code, it won't even allow the coupon code and 15% off discount code on the same rental.
