    Really need your opinion/experience with rental car prices!

    Hi, everyone. Well, my DD and I are headed to WDW at the end of January and we were planning on taking Disney's Magical Express to and from the resort and using bus transportation while there.

    I just got an e-mail a few days ago from priceline with a car rental rate of $8 a day with Advantage Car Rental. This price thrills me but leaves a few doubts in my mind. Today the prices - including Advantage - are back up to $39 at the same time.

    Is there anything I need to worry about with this company? Why was the price so low?!? I don't want to return the car when we're done and then have them accuse me wrongly of banging it up and making me pay for it or some nasty scheme like that.

    I have a reservation but have not paid for it yet. I would love to have a rental car while we're there, but I'm a little concerned.

    What do you all think??? Thanks!

    The first thing I would make sure is that Advantage is in the terminal. I used a company once that was out of the terminal and I got lost trying to find it. I had no idea where I was going and almost missed my flight.

    I haven't used that company so I don't know about it. I got a great rate for a car in December but then when I got to the fine print noticed it was a hundred dollars more than anyone else. Look carefully.

    It sounds too good to be true. I agree , check the fine print.
