    Are you a member of Costco? You can get a car for 1 night from MCO and then pick up a car at the Budget Worldgate Resort on 12/26 and return to MCO with the Costco code and $40 coupon it comes out to $256 for 12/26-1/6 for a prepaid compact.

    Dollar worked out just fine. Not quite as easy as National /Alamo, but not overly complicated either. They had me assigned to a Nissan, I asked them to give me a Taurus. They said, sure. And $60 less than National, $164 total for 8 days.

    Well, that sounds good too. Enjoy. And thanks for your good wishes also.

    Looks like there isn't much out there for deals on Christmas week.

    I was able to lock in about a month ago for $400 with taxes for Dec. 22-Jan. 1.

    What size of vehicle are you looking for?

    Our dates are December 23rd - December 30th, so we feel your pain. We have a standard SUV through Budget (using travelocity public code X474200) for $302 taxes included less a $25 coupon MUWZ023 for a final total upon return of about $277. I am beginning to think this will be as good as it gets.

    I put in your dates and times and through Costco with Enterprise you can get a midsize for $113, standard $121 or fullsize $125 inc taxes. This also includes the free additional driver. Thrifty charges $10/day extra.

    I'm assuming you need a Costco card?

    Thanks!

    Yes, but your savings pays for half the fee for the card :thumbsup2. I was a Costco skeptic but got my first card a year ago and I am now a convert :woohoo:.

    I do have a costco membership and have rented at least 10 times through Costco but not once have I ever been asked to show the card.

    Pick up on 12/20 - drop off 12/25

    I have a feeling something was up today. I checked the flight this morning - and from the time I decided to make the trip tickets went up $50 each. Then, I looked at Expedia today - came home to make the final decision and the same package I looked at went up $170! Yikes! This cheap trip has moved to expensive!

    Thanks for any help - I am a Costco member, just not sure where to find, or where to insert any codes.

    :)

    Here's what I would do, but it's a PITB. I would take a cab to a local Budget location and book a car from there. Go to the Costco booking engine and enter zip code "32807". Select the 6363 E Colonial Drive location for your pickup and MCO as your drop off. It's about 10 miles from MCO. You'll get a rate of $125 all taxes, etc for a mid-size. You'll have to pay a $30-$40 cab fare to get there, but you're still looking at $165 all-in. Make sure that the local location is open when you arrive!
