Hi-
Can somebody please help me- I'm looking to a rent a car- full size or minivan- from MCO (Orlando airport) starting sunday night (Jan. 21) until Wed Jan. 24 (3 day rental). Renters age is 31. I don't care about the company as long as they are reputable. I found a really cheap quote on carrentals.com from some company i never heard of- "nu:" Are they reputable? Thanks!

I almost booked a car with NU as well but a quick search online scared me away with the terrible reviews they have.
