I would look on Mousesavers.com. They have codes for car rentals in Orlando. I usually book on the Costco US web site, but this time I got a better deal on the Budget.ca site using the Costco code.

Sometimes if you prepay you might get another 10% off

The coupon code.....its not a Costco or other code that requires membership, is it? (just checking, as the BCD and coupon code give me a very good rate on a mini van or SUV for our upcoming trip...might be worth switching our full size via Dollar over if I qualify to use the coupon )

Thanks tgropp. I just secured a minivan for 10 days in March for 315.00. Not bad at all!

No membership required. When you get the bill at the counter, they take the additional $25.00 off. I have been using this code for four years now. I am using it (Minivan) for a weeks rental in Fort lauderdale in December. Hope that it works out for you!

As I said to previous poster, I have used this code for over four years. When I rented a minivan over the Christmas holidays in 2010, the rate was $225/week and it is still at $225/week. There is no surcharge for holiday seasons. In addition to the week in Fort lauderdale next month @ $225/week, I also have a minivan rented for one day in Feb to take from Orlando airport to Port Canaveral for a cruise on the fantasy # a cost of $91.00 includes drop off charges etc.....much cheaper than Disney transportation. Glad that you got a good rate!

Fabulous! Thank you!

Hubby is delighted. No squishing ourselves and the luggage into a car on this trip.......never thought we'd get an SUV for a reasonable rate!

I too have used that code for the past couple of years :D Used it last year and passed it on to two co-workers who couldn't believe the difference in their rates!!
I just checked and for our March break it is $253 for a van (plus tax and fees) but that is pretty good for booking now. I will likely book soon and then just keep checking and adjust as needed
Do you also have the Fast Break? It doesn't cost anything, but saves you standing in line inside the terminal. One year (when we were very new to this travelling to Florida thing) we stood in line at Alamo for almost two hours!!! It was awful - I had my parents chasing my toddler and looking after our infant (who I ended up nursing in line as she was screaming bloody murder!) ... so we ended up being talked into insurance as we were new and so frazzled by the time we were at the counter. Alamo did refund when I complained after our trip, which I appreciated, but I didn't like the pushy sales tactics.
I used to use National, but discovered that Budget has had much better prices and we've been happier with our vehicles the last couple of times we have used them.
Good luck

I do have Fastbreak and love it. Saves tons of time at MCO. I will keep trying back with these codes to see if I can get a cheaper rate. Last year I looked a month before our vacation and got a Town and Country SUV for $100 less! Yet minivans had gone up $200. Supply and demand I guess.

Wow - this must have been a time limited code! I punched it in for my dates in March, and standard SUV (Escape) with the codes is $100 more than my full size Crossover (Traverse) at Alamo for our 9 days in March. And I haven't applied any codes to the Alamo rate yet!

Thanks for sharing such a great tip . This is our first time renting from Budget so I didn't know they offered an option to bypass the counter. I will be signing up for this today!

My rate for one week (with taxes) through Budget totalled $298.01 less the $25 coupon. Your dates come up to $408.93 without the coupon, but you have a 9 day rental and mine's only 7. This is by far the best rate I've been able to find for Christmas week for a larger vehicle. I would have loved to have gone with Alamo (whom we have used on our past two trips and "know"), but at $700 for a similar vehicle to our Budget rental, it is most definitely out of the question!!

question about 25 dollars

I booked a mini van for February 26-March 6 for 359 taxes in a while back with the code but didn't have the 25 dollar off one...I just applied it on the budget website and it didnt make a difference in the price (only changed it six dollars)?? Does the 25 not come off on the reservation??

As long as the coupon code has been accepted with your reservation you are fine. Budget will deduct the $25 or $30 coupon code from the total when you return the vehicle.

thanks, so it won't show up on the quoted price?

I am debating cancelling and rebooking again with the added 25 coupon code or can I just add it to an existing reservation??
