Help! Car rental prices from W. Palm Beach airport to Vero

I am in sticker shock. We just booked a 5 night stay to Vero and are flying into West Palm because I thought it was closer than orlando and Melbourne didn't have non stop flights from Philadelphia. I just checked 2 car rental agencies and the prices are 5-600 for 5 nights. Is this normal in that area??? Any suggestions.

Airport prices tack on a few extra taxes. West Palm is no exception. If you could get to one of the off-site rental agencies, the prices tend to drop, not dramatically, but somewhat lower.

It also depends on time of year. During "season", prices go sky high. That's generally Thanksgiving, Christmas time, and January until the last frost up north.

Check out the Transportation board for some great suggestions on rental car companies codes/coupons. Also, check out the Mousesavers site for additional codes/coupons.

Keep Checking

Try costco codes or mouseears.com.
Also keep on checking as you get closer prices will drop. We rented a mini-van in March over spring break @ West Palm for 9 days 180.00 with all taxes. Originally cars were over 500.00. I found that deal with in 7 days of travel. Also just traveled to Orlando for 9 days got a sedan for 130.00 for 9 days. I found that deal the day before we left. Originally had an estimate of over 400.00 5 or 6 months ago.
