    Couldn't find another June thread, so here we go!

    Of course the rates stink now, it's still sort of early I suppose. For the end of June, the best I could find was almost $400.

    Please post your rates, and hopefully we can help each other have a more magical vacation!

    I tried the Mousesavers code for Hertz. Four nights, end of June, got $242.76. Not horrendous, but still pretty bad.

    Count me in! Haven't found anything good yet either. Not even Dollar, who is usually my backup with their Dollar specials (can't remember the exact name). Our dates are 6/6 - 6/16.

    I reserved Alamo for 4 days June 24- June 27 for $215. It was much cheaper for me to reserve on the Alamo site than through a 3rd party (Orbitz, Travelocity, etc). But we are picking up at Disney World Car Care and dropping off at MCO since we just want it for a few days after our Disney vacation to go to the beach.

    Currently I have 2 reservations - 1 with Alamo and 1 with Dollar both reserved back in November when I purchased my airline ticket. Dollar is $575 for a mid size SUV and a midsize car with Alamo for $475. I really want the SUV but I will keep checking for a better rate.

    This is for 6/17 thru 6/28 - Alamo is an Insiders rate - no coupon Dollar is the AAA rate and my Dollar express number

    June 14 - 23 $381 with Budget booked on the Costco travel site. Much higher than I've paid in the past. Last year I booked a 9 day trip for the last week in June and I started out at over $500 6 months in advance but there was just one day where the price dropped to $191 total about 2 1/2 months before the trip. Then it shot back up to over $300 again. Keep trying every day and re-book every time you see a better price.

    Well I just tried picking up from the Car Care Center on 6/18 instead of picking up at the Airport on the 17th and saved myself almost 200.00 - since I really wasn't doing anything on the evening of the 17th and moving to another hotel on the 18th - I will just take Magical Express. But I did find out the Alamo coupon code AD2823JAZ for $25.00 off is active again.

    I believe that coupon code is from the Entertainment Discount Book that expires June 30th. I am waiting for a new code because we are going in November.

    We need a minivan or large enough SUV to fit 6 and luggage June 30-July 12th. Prices are over $1000 for the big companies. Have any of you had good experiences at the cheaper companies out of the airport off-site?

    Looking to rent a minivan for 4 day at the end of June, from either the car care center or the Dollar location at the Wyndham hotel in Disney Springs. Currently at about $197 (Alamo) and $193 (Dollar)

    Looking to rent in the middle of June. Prices are really high. Almost $500 for 8 days for full size. Here’s hopefully they come down significantly.

    :surfweb: And so the game begins. Booked my initial reservation today with Alamo for (6/7 - 6/18). I used contract 7014627 (Costco) and AU2291VYT (1 car upgrade). I got an upgrade from midsize to standard for $434. Since MCO has no standard that will result in a full size for around $38 a day. Of course, I will probably book at least four better reservations before all is said and done, but it's a start. I listed some Alamo codes below that have been valid in past years. I tried most of them and they were still valid. Use at your own discretion. Happy car hunting!

    Wow thanks for all the codes. Still not comfortable with the prices yet. I used the SW code and specialty coupons and it’s still high $400’s. What fun!!

    Prices have been high for awhile. I paid my highest feb rental rate. Prices are high for my April/May trip. Still crunching numbers for my June trip.

    Thanks for the codes! I used the Costco code with 1 car upgrade coupon code to get a full size car for 10 days for $371. Definitely still higher than I want but it's a much better price than what I've seen previously. Everything has been in the upper $500's previously. Hopefully can get it down to $250 by June!

    ETA - just checked again and got it down to $362!

    I just used the Costco code and 1 car upgrade coupon on Alamo.com to book a full size car for 10 days for $362, as well! Thanks for the codes! Hoping it will go down as the time gets closer too.
