Anyone have a review on Ace, Economy, Payless - all in FLL? Seem pretty cheap.

I would truly appreciate it if someone could please help me find a good deal on a minivan rental  from Sunday 1/19 through Friday 1/24 at MCO. I have been checking rates and they are quite costly. I do have ur and amex points I can use if that is better, I'm just not sure if I book it totally or partially with points I may then need to get collision insurance because I won't be using my explorer card. Please advise. Thanks! :)

Budget.com

offer code (BCD): W852875
Coupon Code: MUGZ042

i called budget they said if you have a bcd code u dont need to be 25 you can 21 + with no fee ( i didn't go yet but i hope it works for me).

code is from Costco  (idk if you need to be a member).

Minimum rental is 5 days 3 hours.

i am going only for four days and going to return the car early that option is cheaper.

if any did actually use this offer please reply let us know how it went.

Thrifty was a Canadian rental company with a reputation as good (or bad) as any other rental company

If you don't pay for CD on your primary insurance, is there still a point in using the United card for a domestic rental.  There's no question of your personal insurance paying.
