    YOU are AWESOME! Just my daughter and I with carry-ons - so the smallest car is fine! I would have never even considered that option. We get in at Noon - so I'm sure it will be fine.

    Thanks again!!

    Alamo's rates are finally down this morning. Got a full size for $135 all in for Dec 8-15. :cool1: Used Alamo Insiders and $30 off VISA coupon.

    Unfortunately, the only way to get a reasonable minivan rate thru National is to use the dreaded KLM code :confused3

    Also for Dec 8-15, I can confirm this morning that Alamo rates are down. I booked a Compact for $139 using the Insider's code and the Birthday "free day on us" coupon.

    Other than the Visa $30 coupon, does anyone know of any other Alamo $30, $25 or $35 coupons?

    Thanks for inspiring me to double check...I just rebooked at Alamo for $94 for a compact 12/14-18. Saved another $23. I too used the birthday free day rental code that they sent.

    Dear Santa :santa:,

    All I want for Christmas is one of these fabulous rates for a full-size car from December 23 to 30. I have been a very good girl all year ::yes:: .... or most of it anyway ;) .

    I promise to use the savings on my rental vehicle to help stimulate the American economy :thumbsup2. This Canadian girl loves to shop at the Florida outlet malls.

    Love,

    Gina :)

    Gina...I'll cross my fingers for you too! Outlet shopping was really the pull to get a car. I have visitation rights for a certain purse at Coach.

    You can try the "taxi trick" with Budget. The Landstreet location is about 11 miles from MCO and a $25-$30 taxi ride. Using the two codes you are already using you can get a full size for $227.70 - $20. Add the $30 and you're at $247 all-in. I don't know if it's worth it for you to save $30 or not, but it's an option.

    The idea is a good one, but we have a standard SUV with Budget (X474200 & MUWZ023) for $275 all in, which we can live with if nothing better comes along.

    On our New Years week vacation, we got a Chevy HHR for $65 taxes included (7 day rental). The last week of August, we got an Impala for $115 all-in for the week. I knew Christmas week was going to be expensive.....I really did.....but hope springs eternal and I can't help hoping for rates like other folks are starting to see for early and mid December.

    I am sure DH will be adamant to pick up and drop off at MCO, as that's "familiar". I also don't fly well (thank goodness for gravol and barf bags :sick:) so the smoother the transition from plane to vehicle, the better. I am a royal pain in the rump!!!

    I also am very happy to report I got a standard sedan Dec. 13-19 for $143 with Alamo Insiders and fifth day free, after they sent me an email. The link to that is on their website. Had a rental for $205 from Dollar and was a little leery about Dollar at MCO anyway.

    Even though we aren't going to be in WDW, we are renting a car in Fla in 12 days. We have different pickup and dropoff sites though; I just went on and tried a new reservation and we went from $245 to $108. I can not believe it! Yay! I used AARP, plus we are Emerald Club members, and I found a coupon code online.

    Pickup in Ft Lauderdale 12/19 and drop off at Southwest Regional on 12/23. I'm STILL in shock!
