I’ve used sixt once in the past and it was fine but not great. I wouldn’t use them again unless it was a huuuge savings.

Becuase you can cancel and no charge is made when you book, I would book now and keep looking. I have also booked cars through priceline and hotwire (although you get a weeks rental price so not good for short trips.)

Prices sometimes drop as time goes by. Another option is to take DME (or uber) to Disney and get a car from one of the Disney locations. You save the airport charges.

We have decided not to rent a car for our trip to Walt Disney World next week. I have been checking prices for at least 11 months and they have been sky high and never came down. So much more than we have paid in past years. I tried Undercover Tourist, coupons and discount codes. No luck! I guess it will be nice not to have to drive for a week! Hope your rates come down.

I just used a website called
Managed to get my car in New Mexico (for 5 days) for just over $300 when everywhere else I checked was giving me prices from $450 and up.
Give them a never know.
Although...I do have to agree with KathleenAnn...we rarely rent a car when at WDW (unless we really want to do other stuff). It's nice to not worry about the driving for a week or so.
Jennifer / Eeyore is my favorite!!
