It seems a bit high, plus my valet parking is going to be $40 per day, so I would prefer something cheaper.

I was looking for a very similar rental.
This is what I found for you, if you can make a 7 seater minivan work

Hertz for 283.18
Use the following discounts
Discounts
CDP: CHABAD
PC: 203965
CV: CV051C0002

If you must have 8 seats or more Sixt has for $300.

I have National certs that should work. Though you can only use 3 per rental.
