The lowest-priced 7 day rental I have seen for my dates is, somewhat oddly, $280 all-inclusive for a convertible. (I suppose it can be challenging to rent convertibles in January.) That was at the Costco car rental website. I believe better deals may be available from the lower-tier companies that require a shuttle ride at MCO, but I've never used those.

If anyone likes renting from Dollar, they have good rates for the last week of January for Lock, Low and Go.

    Compact or larger. They choose the car. We have done it several times and so far received cars larger than compact.

    Looks like Costco had a little dip in prices today, it's $17 less than it was yesterday for the 5 days I've been checking for the last week of January.

    Just got a rate of $302 for managers special (compact or larger) pay now for Jan 24-feb 1 on Dollar. Haven't booked it yet but might. Nothing else has even come close to that amount yet.

    I checked Dollar, but none of the offered rates was very appealing. This is probably due to MLK Jr. day falling within my travel dates. But I'll keep checking their site; rates can turn on a dime.

    It's not as quiet in the parks as one would expect for January, but still not bad. It is marathon weekend so lots of runners around and some effect on the early mornings.

    Just check Costco from 1/18-25 and it's dropped down to $256 for an intermediate car.
    Yes, I noticed this afternoon that Costco had come down quite a bit. Time to snag something and then tell AutoSlash to track it.

    Booked through Priceline on Autoslash with Alamo.......$284-$289 Jan 28-Feb 5 depending on size. Its $35 cheaper than Costco. Anyone have experience with this option? It shows up on my Alamo app so thats a plus!

    I rebooked to an Economy size (unacceptable for most, but I will be solo) with Alamo for January 18-25 at $200, via Costco. Although I have Autoslash track my bookings, my recollection is that I generally end up booking through the Costco site. Maybe I will book with Autoslash if they come up with a super-dynamite deal.

    Booked a standard (really full size) with Alamo for $367 January 26-5th. It’s still too high for my liking, but cheaper than the $500 it has been.
