    Thanks for your help and checking for me. Thats so nice of you!

    But I did get a couple reservations already that are under $300 in early September. I have one with national, one with alamo, one with autoslash, and two city specials with dollar (one midsize and one suv, kicking myself for not booking full size when i had the chance) that i kept modifying as rates came down. Now those rates for all companies have doubled. I'd love to get it under $200 like I usually do for our 10 day trips.

    From mid August til last week I could get the city special. Been checking dollar multiple times a day...but like one other person on here, must just be specific times or something. Oh well, I still appreciate the help! I will just keep checking :)

    Check Dollar again today, my standard for 11/23-11/30 inc the extra day due to drop off time has come down to $173 total, compact would have been $155.

    Glad to help, although it didn't do much, lol. Hopefully your rate will come closer to your target as it gets closer!

    Umm just curious what the point is in having 5 different reservations ? Isn't one with the lowest price enough ?

    LOL - Good point! I might have wrote it wrong on my phone. I have two that are booked with autoslash - so I hope they come down, I basically like to think that they check rates when I'm busy. I then have one each with Alamo and National, since its just easier for me to click "modify" and have all my information already in there. Then I have a city special that I keep checking in on with Dollar. Just the way I've been doing it for the past 4 years. Hoping and waiting for Alamo to come through, but have my plan b, c, d, e, ready too...:lmao:

    Silly me, just remembered that MCO doesn't have a standard aisle, so this will be a Full size!

    What codes are you using? We are going Nov. 15-22 and can't get less then 317 for a standard?

    Why not try Dollar, you can get a standard for 157, taxes and fees included. If you can go with a smaller car it is even cheaper than that. :thumbsup2
    The code is KISS2

    Advantage seems to have gone down again; rates this morning are $104.31 total for a compact for my dates (Nov 8-13) That's only $8 over what my current reservation is, hoping to get it down beyond that!

    Is this something that always comes up? I tried for my dates, following the above directions and did not see any city specials? I tried two different scenarios -27th Nov @ 11 am MCO till 1st Dec @ 11am, returning to Port Caneveral, or 27th Nov @ 11 am to Dec 8th @2pm MCO.

    I was actually cheaper keeping the car from the 27th-8th rather than taking it only for the 4 days. Tried using kiss2, 4pmvm, and corporate code given as well.

    Any tips?

    Standard is actually too small for us. I only pick it with Alamo since we will wind up with a full size anyway. Thanks though.

    You can also get a standard for $157 through Costco with Enterprise and free additional driver is included.

    Maybe they have blackout dates? I tried your dates and it didn't come up for either scenario. I put my own dates back in and it popped up. :confused3

    Not sure on what size car or your budget, but I put your dates in carrrentalsavers and came up with $228 total for Dollar, compact car (the 2nd set of dates)

    Thanks! Will have a look at carrentalsavers. Never used them before. For this rental I am looking at the least expensive option, so probably a compact or economy, howver if a bigger car is only a dollar or two more each day, I'd probably take that.

    Thanks for the heads up! When I checked this morning it was still showing the $183. I do have 2 extra hours, so maybe that's where the difference comes in.

    Alamo Midsize down to $313 for me - still not great. But I like to see it dropping! :) (Oct 31-Nov 10)

    Rates seemed to have gone down a bit more this morning! I also got a coupon in my email for Hertz - $50 off a weekly if you are a AAA member.

    "Only AAA Members can save $50 on a Weekly Rental at the airport in the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico and Mexico. Book a Hertz rental for vehicle pickup through November 15, 2012 with PC# 175420 to get the savings."
