Where is your pickup/drop off? MCO?

Yes, it can change hourly! Go ahead and book it for $289. It may continue to go down, you just have to periodically check everyday. I've already booked/rebooked/cancelled about 5 different reservations as prices were changing!

Can you rebook/cancel online or do you have to call? For example, if I see a better deal next week do I just make a new reservation or modify the current one?

You can do it all online. I've done it with both Dollar and Budget. You don't have to put in CC#. You will get an email with a confirmation #. When you find a better rate, book that one first and get your confirmation. then go back to the dollar home page and click "view,modify,cancel" under reservations. Put in the reservation # and your last name of the higher reservation, confirm and cancel. Easy peasy!

Does anyone know where I heard or read that Budget does not charge for additional driver? I just read the fine print and I think it's like $13/per day.

I think if the the other driver is a spouse/domestic partner of the renter or companion of a renter with a disability they won't charge the extra driver fee. Otherwise it is $13/day

Just wanted to add this here for anyone that is looking for a great deal on a compact or SUV--

Budget Car Rental

Get a Compact car for $89/week or $15/weekend day or a SUV for $109/week or $22/weekend day from Budget!

Gives good rates on larger vehicles through full size cars too in most locations.

Use Budget BCD D454300. Valid for rental pickup by 6/15/13 at participating locations. Not valid in New York Metro, Martha's Vineyard, Salt Lake City, Hawaii. Five day minimum rental with 14 day maximum for weekly rates.

Combine with coupon MUWZ020 for $30 off weekly. Coupon requires Saturday night keep and is applied during booking. It may not be applied at all locations. (lifted from Slickdeals)

Thanks for this! We were able to nab an almost identical deal to the one we were using at Enterprise, but we usually rent from Budget. So we're more comfortable with them.

We are doing a land/sea trip. It is cheaper for me to pick up/drop off at the airport and rent for the entire than to rent for two days with this code! Now my question is how can I park for cheap? Would budget allow me to park at their lot while on our 3 day cruise? Is there any tips for cheap parking at the port?

You can park at at one of the offsite parking locations that will shuttle you to your ship. www.parkcruise.com is one that most recommend. $5.99/day when you reserve online.
