    I'm wondering if Katrina has affected rental car rates. I checked the rates after I got a great rate (to see if it would go down further) and it went up over 40%!!!!! My dates are 9/27-10/4. One week, SUV, with all fees I have $161.54 from Alamo.

    We got our rentals through Hotwire. You pick the dates, location and sizes of vechile you want. Hotwire gives you the total price (including taxes and surcharges per day).

    We wanted a minivan, but a full size was 1/3 the price. I booked the full-size for 17/day, and when we arrived in Orlando was able to upgrade to a minivan for an additional 10/day.

    The rental car company was kidden until after I booked. It ended up being Avis.

    We booked a premium level car rental for one week. It ended up costing about what a compact would have cost for the same time period. The company we were given was Hertz. We have always been happy with them.
