    We need to get from Sanford Orlando airport to Wyndham Bonnet Creek on March 29th then back on April 6th. After looking (and bidding) at rental car prices on Priceline it looks like it'll cost us $400-$500 for the week for a rental car...that's ridiculous! What have others used? Shuttles? Towncar services? Any advice? We'll need to stop for a few groceries on the way to the resort and we'll have 3 adults and a 5 month old baby. Thanks!

    We have a Ford Edge reserved from Avis for mid-June for $169 plus taxes and fees, minus an Entertainment Book coupon - total cost is right around $200 for the week. I don't know if the coupon code will work for your dates, but the code can be found in a thread or two on these forums.

    Thanks all, I ended up getting a Budget Intermediate SUV for $167 a week. Used a coupon code that was posted earlier and very happy!

    Try Budget and the "Wendie" special on the front page of the Budget site you can get an SUV for $235 including taxes:
    https://www.budget.com/budgetWeb/ht...l?&ICID=homepage_billboard&IID=wendie_sp_2012

    You can also add a $25 coupon "MUWZ023" (note: it may not be taken off, the rate rules say no extra coupons, but there have been reports that the coupon is being applied when people return the car): http://www.budget.com/budgetWeb/htm...25offwkly.html?BCD=X793200&CPN=MUWZ023&logo=1
