Ok! New Alamo discount!
Changed again!
From a midsize to a std SUV, and also added one day (free)... now it's from 1/3 to1/12 and only $295!
Saving 60 and adding a day! Cheers

I ended up with an Alamo intermediate from Costco for a pickup on 1/4/13 for a week and one day, all fees included and the rate is $165.68. I think I am done looking--this works out to about $20 a day, and I am pleased with that rate for this day and time.

This is my first time wanting to book at the Car Care Center (Alamo/National). Have people been finding better discounts with Costco, insider, etc.? I typically rent from MCO and have found best rates at carrentalsavers dot com....but can't figure out how to plug in the CCC through their website.

So...what/who is currently offering the best discount at CCC (need minivan 1/26-1/28, 2 days) for a minivan. Costco gives me $203 which seems high...does anyone else want to try to beat that for me, pretty please?

My sister is Emerald Club (through work), and at one time I had Insiders, not sure if it is currently active.

My other question is exactly how does this work. I'm planning on having them pick me up at MK at noon on 1/26 and then dropping the car off, and returning my party on 1/28. Can I schedule a pick-up, or do I need to call 30 minutes in advance? 1/26 is a Saturday, so not sure if that makes things harder/busier?

Are there car rental options closer to MK...time is at a premium for this trip. On pick-up day, I will need to return to MK to pick up the rest of my party (planning to do so at BLT to save time)...and then of to Grandma's house we go!

Just double checked for you, got same price. Have you tried pick up at Dolphin if that is an option? Good luck.

I ended up with a fullsize, from Alamo, for 180.33. Jan 20-28th. I checked again today and it seems to just be going up. I may be done looking.

Don't give up yet. I have found significant price drops up to four hours before pick up. Prior week seems to yield best discounts for us

Just FYI - to plug the CCC into carrentalsavers, choose "near a place of interest" and enter WDW, it will default to the CCC.

Car choice

Is there a vehicle, other than a minivan, that will hold 4 people and 7 pieces of luggage? I have a minivan for $450 for 10 days but was wondering if I could get a different vehicle that would be cheaper but still hold the luggage.

Gosh! I booked an economy from 1/10-1/14 for $66 with tax... tried and tried to get 1/9-1/14 but adding that ONE day brings the rental up to over $240 bucks!

Sigh

Dollar has a much better deal for a minivan for early January than Alamo. However, when you add a spouse as an additional driver, it's no longer as good of a deal. Any way to get around the additional driver charge?
