I think I just figured something out that is going to save our family a lot of money. We are flying into Pensacola and driving to DW and need to rent a minivan. Prices are all well over $1,200 for our dates. But... I just tried a drop off of MCO and the rate drops to about $400 without much of a discount. Somewhere I read that I can still take the ME from MCO, even if I didn't just fly in, as long as I make a reservation.

Has anyone done something like this before?

Cheapest minivan rental I have seen is with National using the KLM code flying into Tampa. Which was 520.00 using a entertainment coupon. This is for a 10 night rental. Not terrible. But I have a hard time paying this. When I pain 150 with taxes for a minivan with alamo for 8 days in Nov of last year.

Just rechecked my minivan rental out of Tampa. KLM code and entertainment book coupon down to 405 with taxes for 10 night rental! Still higher than I like but I booked in case. Signed up for National Emerald Express to have hubby as free driver! Which is a must on nearly every trip.

ain, what is the KLM code and also what does the entertainment book offer? Trying to decide if I should pick up a entertainment book or not.

Forgive me, but I'm new at this. Historically, what has been considered a "good" rate for a minivan in mid October for a Saturday to Saturday rental? We will be there Oct 12-19.

We have paid about $302(taxes included) for a week rental (minivan) through Budget using that Travelocity code for about 3 years now...Sadly, that is not working anymore.

I just booked a 9 day rental with National using the code from page 3
(xz53043) for $426 taxes included for a minivan Nov 2-11. So far, this is by far the best rate I have found. I am fine with this rate, but will keep checking.


Does anyone know if National allows a spouse to drive? When I tried to add him, it upped the cost 9.99 per day. Not worth it for our family...

Thanks everyone!

Since I posted an hour ago, I started playing more with codes...

I found this code on the June 2013 thread...

Check National with ID#8572130 (KLM code)

9 days for $368 (incl taxes) now for a minivan (this includes a one time use $20 off code from my Attractions book). I have never used this code, but it is reported that you don't need to show anything.

And so the game continues...

KLM code has been lowest for me by a huge margin (and I love National so it makes me happy). I made my full-size reservation about a month ago: 13 days, $407. It has risen a bit since then.

Thanks SO MUCH for the National KLM code! We've never used National before but this is by far the cheapest for a minivan October 12-20, it was $348!

Can I join the Emerald Club on their site and just go right to the garage at MCO like you can do with Budget?

Thanks so much for the code from page 3 (xz53043)! It's for the Compass Group (food service company). Any time I have used an employers code I have never been asked when picking up a car rental for business travel, so it would really surprise me if that were to happen.

I just booked a 8 day rental (10/18-10/25) with National using Full Size for $236 (after tax) from Disney Car Care! Best deal I have seen! It has saved my over $100 from what I could find this year and last year with similar dates!

When researching last year I kept checking with codes from Mousesavers in July/August timeframe if that helps? That's when most of the codes seem to come out for October. I checked multiple rental car companies from the DCC and MCO (+2 days with MCO). DCC has better rates without the airport fees/taxes, and I have heard you can get a shuttle to/from the resorts to DCC. Worth the savings.

Thanks everyone!
If you are a National Emerald Club member you can add a family member as a 2nd driver at no additional charge I believe. Emerald Club is free to join. From Mousesavers:

"...once you are an Emerald Club member, 'any family member living in your home, with a clean drivers license, major credit card and a license with the same address can drive a National car without an additional drivers fee being charged to them. They are automatically authorized.' "

Thanks all again for making my car rental day today!

Is this the KLM corp id that everyone has been using for National? 8572130? Anyone have any other good coupons to tack on top of it?

I assume, KLM you just need to sign up for their flying blue membership?
