So my rental is 12/7-15. I need a mini van and was seeing 507 a lot... I was doing pickup at 1030 and drop off at 10 to stay under a day... for run I put in pick up at 8am and drop off at 4pm....$321... I don’t understand it, but play around sometimes w your drop off and pick up times.

Our rental starts at 8 and we land at 11am, but so be it.

Using Costco w alamo

    Does anyone know which rental companies have locations AT MCO? Trying to nail down who to go with (I am doing my due diligence and running numbers) my husband still hasn't even agreed to fly, but he has a sweet spot for Southwest who just released their prices for our dates :coffee:
    Thank you in advance for any info!

    Thats pretty good price for a van. What codes did you use?

    No codes. Just go through costcotravel.com It applies any and all coupons out there for you and you still get the pre check in and skip the counter options. I've done it this way many many times.
    Side note, I've crossed searched any coupon and contract codes I can find and consistenly find Costco to be the best.
    Another thing I do is play with the times of pick up and drop off. Some times being 6 days and 23.5hours is cheaper by a lot then 7 days.

    I also check every day! ( I trip plan for a lot of friends - (I'm not a travel agent of any kind) but help friends so I'm constantly checking for all their trip and mine to Disney and other destinations and Costco kills it every time!))

    Thanks for all the tips. Unfortunately I am not a Cost co member. I would join but there isn't a store near me. We use Sams Club.

    You can use Costco code and a $25 off code and get the same rate. In 15+ rentals I’ve NeVER been asked for my Costco card.....

    Also a membership is $60. So if you can save more than that it’s worth getting even if you never go in a store....

    We typically use Costco and rent through Alamo because we like to skip the counter and go right to the garage. I had originally booked a mini van from 12/8-12/24 for $1037 and it dropped to $550 a couple of weeks ago. It's definitely the best deal I've found for this trip for a van.

    That sounds right - In my experience, Costco rates are usually better than the Alamo website. I just booked a car for my Dec trip.

    I have a trip December 7th to December 12th. So far I have a Standard SUV for $235. Unless this goes down a lot I will be using Disney Transportation for the first time. We are staying at Yacht Club so I think it won't be so bad but I love having my own car. With the cost of parking though the decision is getting harder.

    $235 for a Std SUV is a good rate. I have a Std SUV with Alamo for $335 for Nov 9th-16th.
