Orlando Rental Car Rates Soar Spring 2015

Orlando International Airport houses the largest rental car market in the world so prices are usually the best you'll find anywhere. However, we're noticing that prices have increased for March and April travel. 

Alamo's website is featuring a Pay Now deal, but we don't recommend this. Find out why here.

Costco is offering some of the best rates and if you're not already a member, you might be able to pay the membership and still save money!  Our benchmark for midsize and full size cars is $30 per day but rates are as much as twice that on some websites.

We recommend taking the time to shop around. In this volatile market, try different websites. For example, Travelocity is offering a full size car with Alamo for $70 per day. Costco has the same car for $38 per day and Alamo's own website, using the Insider discount is $68 per day. 

On the Save at Walt Disney World website where we discuss money saving tips for Orlando rental cars, we explain why paying in advance to get a better rate is not recommended.

Money can be saved if you rent with a company off airport property but this is such an inconvenience we rarely consider this as an option.
