    That's it all paid for now! Feels amazing! :goodvibes

    The only thing I need to book is a rental car for the day. We are planning on using our last day to go shopping in Orlando as we disembark the cruise so early and our flight isn't until 6:30pm.

    Does anyone have any advice for who's best to use? We would be doing a one-way rental from Port Canaveral to Orlando Airport.

    Thanks in advance guys! :thumbsup2

    What size car?
    What date?

    I have priced the cheapest and guessed 27th Dec.
    Cost using this link £22.10 (£20.77 after Quidco)
    Add Tank of gas (Max) for only £5.72 = £27.82 (£26.15 after Quidco)
    Personally I would go for full size or SUV for £35.31 (£33.19 after Quidco) well worth the extra £7 to me.

    You need to enter pick up: cape canaveral downtown
    drop off: orlando airport

    I am waiting for a better cashback deal, 6% isn't great, they offer upto 15% sometimes. i will try gain Monday. Doesn't make a massive difference to a 1 day rental but I am looking for 10 days & 14 days.
    Cashback is never guaranteed.

    Hello Wayne,

    Im looking for car hire too! Do you go through Quidco or click on the link or do both like it says on the post?

    Thanks

    Andrea

    You need to follow the intructions of post #3 in the link. Hopefully I will try it again next week to confirm it still works with cashback.

    It doesn't seem to be able to add the extra information for the 15% discount to work on my phone so I will give it a try when I can get on the laptop.

    It does look cheap though, from 13th Oct to 30th Oct it's £275 for a compact 2 door!

    Thanks : 0 )

    I just tried it with your dates following the instructions, you should get a price of £233.75 with the 15% off. If Quidco tracks it would be 6% off = £219.73

    If you use TopCashBack they pay 10.1% making your total cost £210.14.

    Personally I only use Quidco after hassle with TCB but others have no problems with them, I prefer to wait for a better offer on Quidco, hopefully Monday.

    That's a great price thanks!I have a little time before to need to book so I will hang on in the hope of a better Quidco offer!

    I only use Quidco too, it can get too confusing having different cash back accounts.

    Thanks again!

    Thanks Wayne, great advice!! I'll get right on it. I take it most rental companies do shuttle runs from the port?

    I know Alamo, Dollar & Budget do.

    I emailed Holiday Autos this morning. cost of rentals were showing lower but then when I tried adding Max it added double the amount.
    I got a reply but it just said to ring them to book. I havn't checked again yet to see if its sorted.

    ETA just checked, still has the error, replied back to their email telling them I want to book online when the error is corrected.
