I had a rental rate of $16 per day for a compact car through Carrentals.com with Advwntage. On a whim, I decided to check Advantage directly tonight and my rate is now $10.40 per day for a week. We were on the fence regarding keeping the car for the entire week, but after seeing that rate, it's a no brainer. $110 with fees for a week is absolutely worth it.

I checked my Alamo rates yesterday and it was down by $30. I cancelled my reservation and rebooked with the cheaper rate. I was finally able to cancel on the Alamo website. I am one to check 3-4 times on a daily basis. I am happy to report the rate dropped this morning by $55. I used AD8Z21SDB and 7015504 along with my Alamo Insiders.

I managed to book a minivan for May 8-18 yesterday on their site for a better price. I would love to use the $40 coupon you mentioned, but saw it's a BJ member coupon, and not a member. It would've been nice to save another $10 more. I got a better price using the WDW AP member contract code vs the Visa code thought. I think I booked $384 for a 10 day minivan rental. Not the best, but cheaper than national using the KLM code and coupon.

As you're exiting the ramp, just ask the person when you give them your paperwork and drivers license and they'll add the driver at that time. I didn't really trust the Alamo person when they told me to do this, but we've done it a couple times now with no problem (always using the Insiders membership).
Thanks for that info. I did see Alamo Insiders can add a free relative living in same household with same address on driver's license. And, I did double check on the Costco thing, so we are covered for free. But, in the future when I am not traveling with a Costco member, I will keep this trick in mind. Thank you.

Dollar City Special mini van

Check Dollar city specials for mini vans right now. I found a mini van for 6 days out of TPA for $175 plus taxes and fees. It doesn't beat my Costco $189 all inclusive rate I found a few days ago, but still not bad for someone looking.

Dropping rates but looking for lower.

9 days away from the darkside and staying at SVR. Rates still aren't where they were last year. Right now I've got a fullsize thru Budget for $202 total.
Any help I can get lowering would be awesome. Here are my details.
Mco on 5/4 10am till Mco on 5/11 3pm Thanx in advance.

Dollar is $374 inclusive for those 10 days, it's not much cheaper but I thought I'd mention it.

It's funny, the rate dropped from 13/day to 12/day for the economy car on our dates but when I added my 10% off code to the new lower rate my total was higher. I guess I'll keep my original ressie for $11/day x 3 days plus taxes/fees ($58 total)

Just got a mini van for May 4-11 for $258 with taxes by clicking on city specials. Beats my budget code x474200 by a couple of bucks and I won't need to worry about it being a valid code. I wonder if it will go any lower.

Just booked National with a pickup at SOG on May 4th.
Return to MCO on May 9th.
$84 total.
I am planning on taking a bus to MK, boat ride to the Poly and finally a walk to SOG.

Your best bet is to look through this thread and make note of the codes posted and try them out to see what works best for you. This thread is really about providing information and tools for you to find the best deal.

Where do you find the Dollar City specials? I see last minute specials and other specials for minivans for 39.99/day, but not "city".

Thanks!

Thanks!
When you enter your trip information, make sure you don't use any codes and choose all car types. When it brings up the car choices you will see gold highlighting over about the middle of the page with the words City Special. Click on that and the City Special rate will come up. Does not work on the mobile site only the full site.

My experience this morning

I called Disney's Car Care Center # 407 824-3470, spoke with Kelly, and these are the steps that she gave me to follow for pick up from Shades of Green.
1. Take Magical Express from MCO
2. Call her once we are on the Magical Express to schedule pick up from the resort (Pop Century for us)
[She says with the flight delays etc going on now, she would need time to set the pick up for us]

She said regardless to the time you set for pick up on your reservation, the location holds the reservation for 24 hours. And this was my concern, as I have never done the Magical Express, but have always wanted to! So we will be able to ride the Magical Express, and not have to worry with the luggage. Win-win.
She did also say that the latest pick up time she could set would be 5:20pm, as they close there at 6 pm.
