I am trying to book a tpa trip and will most likely go with budget. Are there any coupon codes? I usually use mugz165 for 35 off but now get a message it has expired.

Reason being it counts towards maintaining my membership as an executive and guaranteed one class upgrade

Thanks in advance guys

try Honda. Maybe Toyota as well. They lease for $200-250, why wouldn't they rent for between that and your quotes...

rated:
Is it even do-able?
I did a quick search on the internet after reading your post, and came up with no such a thing, has anyone done it here before?

I tried calling a couple rental offices and tried to negotiate something but nothing better than what I have in hand already.

Thanks for your input

rated:
Honda definitely did; that's why you never saw Hondas on rental company lots. But I read somewhere Toyota does, too

Request
Orlando Florida MCO airport.
Fullsize - Premium
3/30/16 8pm to 4/5/16 11PM

Best I found was through Costco Travel for $195 for Premium.
Hertz after I booked my trip was $243.
Budget was $236 with R524190

Thinking Costco is as cheap as you can get.

u r not going to be driving a car from Costco. So think about it (u can see - further on on Costco reservation - the coupons used)
Also pls use careful language here. I understand that a quote from Costco website is all-inclusive, but some readers do not

You do need to be a member.

  I just booked through them with Budget. It actually went down to $185 for the week all in, premium car. I can't imagine it possibly getting much lower than that. Under $30/day seems unreal to me, but I've only rented a car a couple times in my life. I'll keep an eye out.

rated:
Autoslash.com You just can't beat it. Book any rental online (don't pay), enter your bottom line cost, confirmation number on Autoslash.com and the computer will watch for better deals and re-book you at a lower rate.

Recently I got a $350 rental at RSW for 8 days and I only had to pay $102.00

I've used Autoslash for many years and it's by far the best (and free to do too)!!!!

rated:
it's interesting that neither Costco nor Autoslash do anything you can't do yourself. This is the reason for this thread's existence. I've beaten Autoslash on all my rentals. As to Costco, they list the codes they apply near the end of your on-line process. So why not go to the company whose car you'll get with those codes??

rated:
I found mousesavers.com offers great information.They list the terms and conditions for each coupon so you don't have to waste time entering expired or irrelevant ones. The best one for me was $20 off 4 days which ended up pricing slightly less then the free weekend day codes. So budget is very affordable.

  Only one that came up for Orlando was "SIXT" and was $300. I just did Costco Travel again for Orlando and it's $500+. Think I got a great deal at $185 or whatever it was.

National (I have Executive status)
Pick ups are pricing out only $101.68 all-in
I have reserved this because of the price but prefer a car only if I can get this low of a deal.

Wonder if I can use this rental but go to Emerald Aisle for a car if I reserve a pickup? The National website says " Choose any car (Midsize and above) on the Emerald Aisle and only pay the Midsize rate"

I'm thinking…Trucks are "above" midsize…does anyone know how National views pickups? May be specialty?

Does anyone have any experience with using Budget's rate codes and their Fastbreak number? I get a good rate for a rental without the code but when I put in my fastbreak number, the rate doubles. Their customer service line didn't have a reasonable explanation for it. I find it odd so just wondering if anyone had this experience.

Is the National TDB Publications code "good" to use? Car and Driver is no longer active.

Are there any enterprise codes which are active and works for neighborhood location? Airport is too far to pick up and drop off. I am getting around 19$ + tax per day for an economy car for next week through my company's corporate discount code. I am not sure if there are ways to find better rates.

rated:
No they don't. Please screenshot where you see this. I rent from them almost 30 weeks per year.

Thank you so much for this post!!!! Its like endless codes this is amazing!

  If possible can you rent at an offsite location. Sky Harbor has terrible taxes and fees. When we rent in Arizona we usually do at offsite (you could taxi or Uber to a location close to Sky Harbor and return there--I have never been charged a fee for a different drop off location). I have done Alamo and Budget/Avis in Phoenix. The rate you have doesn't seem outrageous for 12 days. I have a 7 day full size rental in Phoenix for the start of August and its $201, but that is picking up out at Falcon Field and returning to Gateway (half the cost picking up at Falcon even though we fly into Gateway). Just a thought....ENJOY THE TRIP AND HOT WEATHER!

  I suggest you grab a booking and then use autoslash.com to track the rental prices.  It will automatically rebook for you at lower rate.  Then the day before I leave I check rates and I can almost 100% guarantee the rates will be a lot lower.  Rates are never good 2 months prior to arrival.  BTW I don't think youor rate is bad at all for 12 days. (I think it will still be lower).

To those still posting requests in this thread. It is several years old, but the basic methods are the same. If you have a request I wouldn't really expect someone to search for you or offer better. Most people who look here are newbies who request someone to find them a car deal with no research (examples in posts above). Google and you will be able to find discount codes you qualify for. When you find a good rate, book and keep monitoring as it may go down closer to travel date (you can rebook at lower rate and cancel old reservations). Use codes you don't qualify for at your own risk (they can request ID even if you use kiosk and if you don't have you will pay a walk-up rate if you can't produce ID). If you use a code that has insurance and you aren't affiliated with the company and have accident there will be a major issue when you can't produce ID showing you qualify for the rate. 

I have been asked for my COSTCO card by Alamo. I had a relative use a code and when they couldn't produce ID they had to pay walk-up rate even though they and myself had used the rate numerous times before without incident. Anymore there is no rhyme or reason to rates. If at an airport and rates high try booking at offsite for pickup and return to airport (I have found in Arizona this works best to get lowest rates). Taking an Uber to an offsite location might save you LOTS of money. I am saving $300 by doing that next week through Alamo.
