Looking for a rental car for your Disney World vacation? If you stay at a Disney hotel resort, you're eligible for free transportation to and from Orlando International Airport. Then, once you're at Disney World, there are many free transportation options — bus, ferriy, water taxi, monorail and gondola — to get between your hotel and the theme parks.
On the other hand, if you are staying off-property, you'll want a rental car to get between your hotel and the theme parks.
Alamo has been the official rental car company of Disney World and Disneyland since 2002. Yet despite this long-standing partnership, it's still a smart idea to shop around if you want the best possible deal.
Alamo has a dedicated web page for Disney vacations. "Alamo — the Official Rental Car of Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort — encourages you to discover all the magic that awaits you. With convenient on-site locations, Alamo can help you and your family create more memories during your next Disney Parks getaway."
But does that translate into superior savings?
How to Get a Cheap Car Rental for a Disney World Vacation
Step 1: Ask AutoSlash for a quote. Finding the lowest car rental rate can take hours of legwork if you do it on your own. Submit a quote request to AutoSlash and we'll scour the Internet to search through best base rates, discounts and coupon codes. We'll also factor in any of your memberships such as AAA, AARP, Costco and others and apply any additional discounts to which you might be entitled. Sometimes your membership will deliver the best rate, another time we may find a better deal with a coupon code, and sometimes we'll be able to find a low rate through a combination of the two types of discounts.
Sometimes it may turn out that Alamo provides the best rate. But not always.
Step 2: Ask AutoSlash to track your reservation. Car rental prices go up and down based on supply and demand. And, unlike airline tickets, rental car reservations can usually be canceled without a penalty. So if prices drop—as they often do—there's no reason not to cancel and rebook at a cheaper rate. The best strategy is to book as early as possible, and then keep checking to see if prices go down.
But who has time to constantly check for lower rates when you're planning a Disney vacation? Ask AutoSlash to track your reservation, and we'll let you know if there's a price drop. This is a free service, so you have nothing to lose.
Step 3: Keep tabs on your inbox. If we find a lower price, we'll shoot you an email alert and let you know so you can cancel your reservation and rebook at the lower rate.
