Experiment with the pickup times. By taking the van Jan 6-12 noon - jan 13 12 noon, my cost was over 400. I put in a pick up time of just 30 minutes earlier, or drop off time 30 minutes later, and the price dropped to under 200, plus taxes! Take the car longer, pay less! On checking again for you, my rate actually went down by about 10$, so I rebooked it. I am a member of the enterprise rewards program as well, and that helped with the rate a little bit as well, but only a 5% difference.

Always experiment with the times for pick up, and drop off. If you return the car 30 minutes early, they dont seem to mind.

Solid advice here! Thanks so much!

1st trip to Disney with my 5 year old twins. Dollar and Thrifty are down to $253 for January 20th - 28th for a minivan without any promo codes.

I'm hoping it goes lower, but I need a van and can't go with a smaller vehicle.

This is the lowest I've seen thus far for 8 nights like I need.

If anyone sees something lower, please help a first timer out!

We're flying in Jan 8 and returning on the 13th. For a medium car we're paying $120 at advantage.

Through Costco you can get a minivan with Enterprise for $280 inc taxes which includes the free additional driver. Dollar charges $10/day extra. The lowest prices are usually a couple of weeks out.

I just booked a minivan for 10 nights for $328.75 inclusive through Costco's website. The rental company is Alamo.

I rebooked the minivan for $316 later the same day when I was checking prices for my MIL's rental. Doesn't hurt to keep checking!

Enterprise

Just found Enterprise at $237 from 1/24-2/2/13. I use them locally for work all of the time.

Any experiences renting from MCO??

Just booked with Dollar for Marathon Weekend ....1/10-1/15 for $117 + tax for an Intermediate. No code, city special. The other mousesaver codes were about the same.

No. The rate I had was with no code applied. But the City Special brought the price down on a few models. I did plug in whatever MouseSaver codes were valid for that time period, but for my specific rental, the no code option was best.
