That sounds fantastic but I don't think I want to bank on that happening.

Thanks so much for the code #U240720! I just used it and got a $53.00 one way SUV on April 24th & then a $43.00 SUV on April 28th to WDW. Awesome!

Wow, Budget is expensive from Orlando to Port Canaveral??

I am trying to rent us a car from May 17 at 7 pm, to May 18 at 12 pm. This is a 17 hour rental.

Budget is giving me a quote of $72.99 for the second cheapest car. My husband says this is really high for not even 24 hours! Any coupon codes or tips anyone can give me to bring the price down a bit??

Try this code: Y937800. I've used it a couple times for a good discount :-)

Thanks for the code. I just found one on retailmenot that brought the price down from $72.99 to $40.00, so I used that for both days. Sorry for the thread!

I just used a couple codes from retailmenot but the codes I tried were not very good... Which code did you use?

I actually found the opposite to be true. We also used Budget and we found a decent price for a 2 day rental from Orlando to PC. However, our 3 hour rental from PC back to Orlando was outrageous (and was more than the 2day rental!!) I tried every coupon code I could find and nothing worked!

I don't have any tips for saving, my DH travels a lot so usually has free rental car days. I would love some information though. Is there a place to drop off rental cars at the port? I've tried looking, and can't seem to find anything. We have taken the bus in the past, which is convenient, but much more expensive, and I'd actually like to go spend the night near the beach before we leave this time, instead of staying in Orlando. If there is a car drop off, does anyone know what companies (Avis, National, etc.) are there? Thanks!!

That worked for me!

Got a BMW 528 one way(24 hours) to MCO for $50!

Everyone else was picking up there compacts for $42?

So I came across something weird with my carseat situation I posted about yesterday. When I was trying to book yesterday I was on the app and it was charging me for 2 days car seat rental for under a 24 hour period ($26). Today I tried looking it up on the computer and I was able to get the carseat charge for only one day ($13) even though I was using the EXACT same dates, times, car type, etc. how weird is that? But I booked and got $84 total to port and $61 total to Mco. I'll take it.

Morale of the story - don't book on the app if you need a carseat!

This is my plan too for transportation from and back to MCO.
And also one of 2 last steps left to plan. I'm going to jump online and see if I can snag a deal!
Thanks for the codes!

Anyone have a suggestion for where to stay the night before our cruise? Orlando or port canaveral ? Any specific hotel?

Thanks!

Rental Car

I booked a rental car from Budget for November 2013 from MCO to Port Canaveral and it was $60.26 and from Port Canaveral to MCO I got it for $46. I will continue to check the rates as the months go on, but I was happy with this. Hoping for better, but not totally awful for a full-size vehicle.

We're staying at the holiday inn express at cape canaveral only because I have enough priority club points for a free room. I can't speak specifically about this location but in general I really like the holiday inn express chains. They have awesome complimentary breakfasts, great shower heads and I have had luck with clean rooms. This locations claims to be walking distance from the beach. We'll see how that goes with a 3 year old but we have the rental car to fall back on, right?!
