So I felt good about using it.
Oh, yes, MouseSavers is an awesome avenue for savings!! I get their newsletter and have saved a lot on our Disney World trips from the tips I have gotten from them !

Thanks for the info cruzinisgood!!!

It's good to keep checking back as one said prices do change. The $120 was the price I got for a full size car for 2 days with the "Y" coupon code for the past two months.
It was still $120 as of last Monday.
Today under two weeks before we leave it dropped to $65 !!!!!! Plus it accepted the upgrade coupon the other poster posted.
I'm hoping that a full size car will fit 4 people and ALL our luggage so a possible upgrade will help.
Oh my gosh, that is AWESOME!! Validates my obsession with checking rates frequently, LOL!

I tried the code and it brought the compact car rental down from $120 to $88 per day for our January trip ..pick up at FLL and drop off at MIA. Good savings...BUT then I checked the Thrifty site..and with no code my 2 day rental would only be $48 per day. Its amazing how much of a price difference there is between car rental companies.

That's great! I just tried a Thrifty code from the rentalcode.com that a pp mentioned and with 4C14M code, I could rent a minivan for 24 hrs picking up in FLL and dropping off at Miami cruise port for $39.99!!! Too bad it's only good thru June and I need November .

I will definitely keep checking!

Thanks everyone for the great ideas!

just changed one half of my rental from budget to alamo through hotwire. got a minivan from orlando airport to hotel drop off in miami for $20.00 per day. went from 177 for 2.5 days to 87. Just keep pluggin away. does take time tho and you have to mapquest to see other possible nearby locations to where you need to be and factor in shuttle or cab. Plus different codes really depend on different locations it seems.

Thanks for sharing!! I was using another budget code U1333214, and when I went to make some changes I do not know what I did. I messed up my reservation and couldn't get the same discount. I used the code you provided and I got my discount back. Now I'm happy again!!!

Thank you so much for your code! I had 3 car rental reservations and I applied to the code to all of them. Savings were about $5 each, but I'll keep checking!

Your upgrade code is vaild until Dec 2012 and my rentals are in 2013 - I'll check rentalcodes.com early next year for more goodies. I love Cruise Critic!

Thanks Eeyoregon.....I booked Budget last night for 2 day pre-cruise rental prior to my Freedom cruise next month. Saved almost half off Budget's "pay it now" discount. Good work!

I already have a Budget car rented and I just called them. They are listed as downtown,port of miami and they do not have a shuttle to the port. They said a cab ride is $13 to 15 dollar. Just thought I would let you know. If you all are booking a different location than Miami then sorry I guess I did not read that.

I'm picking up in Fort Lauderdale at the airport and returning to the downtown Miami location, which is 1.6 miles from the Port of Miami. We are a group of 8 so the driver in our group will drop all of us and our luggage at port and then run the van back to the rental office and taxi it back to meet us at the port. MUCH cheaper than dropping off at Miami airport and I'm all about the cheap !

Anyone on here doing rental post cruise? I read that there is a shuttle at pot Everglades that will take u to budget location. Has anyone use this? If so, do u have to wait till shuttle is full? We would like to sel disembark early to make the most of our last day in Florida. How quick can we get to budget?

Thanks

OMG - Thank you Gina. I just used this code to get a rental for our cruise in a couple of weeks. I was going to use a shuttle service, but then I got nervous since I'm kind of a control freak and didn't want to rely on someone else to get me to the port - lol.

Yay! So glad it worked out for you! It is nice to have a car...you can stop and get soda, wine, etc. I like the freedom and control of a car too!

Happy sailing.

Good question. There will be 6 adults + luggage in our group so I am already preparing for suitcases being on all of the floorboards and in laps, LOL! We're going to try it...live and learn.

We could get a full-size passenger van for $57 more but have decided to take our chances since this is a tight budget trip for our group.
We rented a mini van for our cruise last year, we had 6 people in our group (3 adults, 2 teens and a 10 yr old). We fit, but we did have to put a bag or two in between the buckets seats in the 2nd row.

Here's a pic from when we were loading up the van. Another carry on size bag was put on top of the black & white suitcase on the left and the gray garment bag had to be flattened more so that I could see. The luggage was a really tight squeeze, but we managed from Tampa to Miami and back just fine.

We're just going from FLL to hotel in Coconut Grove so it wont really be a long ride

We're sailing in Sept/Oct. Interestingly enough, the Costco option is a buck cheaper to pick up at MCO and drop off at Port Canaveral, but on the return the Y code saved me a bunch (almost half) for pick up at Port Canaveral and drop off at MCO. I had no idea that it could vary so much.
Well done! Thanks for sharing!
