You guys are the best - thanks for all the help, the great coupon code information and all the positive news!
I hope you do see similar reductions. But car rentals can be fickle, sometimes depending upon the day of the week you pickup or return, etc. In addition, since you're still a few weeks off, you may be near or in the busy Easter period, so who knows what will happen. I think you'll wind up doing quite a bit better, but you're very smart making reservations as you go along.

It's true, being the week before Easter, dropping off Easter Eve, is tough. But I agree - I just have a strong feeling I'll end up a lot better as I get closer in. Even if not, we're already under budget, being under $400 for the 10 days. I love hearing all the success everyone else is having, though. I like hearing about you all saving money! Keep it up!

I am baffled. I have been looking for rentals on every rental car site I can since November for 3/23 to 3/31. I can't get anything under 550 no matter what codes I use! I would jump at 400 dollars. What am I missing

I was on Budget, and used BCD X474200 and (Paperless $35 off weekly rental) Coupon Code MUGZ165. I'm only slightly different, 3/21 11am - 3/30 4pm, and the rate I got is $393.62. Maybe give those codes a shot? I wonder if dropping off on Easter is what hurts you. Let us know, and good luck!

What size car do you need lildeb724? I get $276 for a compact using the above codes. A minivan/SUV is only $319.

I am still sitting on my National reservation for a midsize SUV for 3/22-3/30 at $283 using the KLM code that I booked beginning of January. The rates have been in the $400's since, but yesterday I noticed they dropped back down to close to my best rate so at least moving in the right direction for that busy week. I wish we could just book emerald aisle or find a coupon code that works, but with 5 of us (including a car seat) we really need to guarantee at least a suv or minivan.

I just wanted to let everyone know, I called our insurance company today (State Farm) to make sure we had loss of use coverage on our policy. We did not. So, she told me there is a coverage you can add to cover a non-owned car (rental car) for like $4 a month. You have to keep it on your policy for 30 days and then you can remove it. Just for anyone who is worried about it.

These are our exact dates as well. I booked the KLM code in Dec for $260. I looked this morning and the rates still look really high ($400+). So, wonder if they just dropped yesterday for a day (I didn't check yesterday)? Anyway, I am just glad I booked these early! Good luck to all of you still looking for a good rate!

You guys rock. I got 252 for an intermediate size car. Do I need to show anything with these codes?

I checked on Budget tonight and our rental went down....just booked it on Feb. 23rd. So I cancelled the other one and booked this lower price. So for a March 22nd pick up at MCO and drop off on March 28th we have 228.85 for a compact. The last ressie was for 240.56...I will take every little bit off I can.


Still used MUWZ126
BCD X474200

Not sure what these codes are but they worked. I think the coupon was a paperless one.
