Anyone Know of Rental Car Deals in Florida?

Hi All,

I'm looking for some help with rental car rates in Florida. I've planned a vacation for my family starting the Friday after Thanksgiving. The main goal is to take my 7 1/2 year old to Disney World. To get the best air fare rates, and because we are seeing other sites in addition to Disney, we are flying in and out of Tampa. I have a rental car lined up with Alamo for the first three days of the trip, from when we arrive in Florida until we drop the car off at Disney World; the rate for this period is about $26 per day including all fees and taxes.

The problem I've hit is finding a cheap rate for a one-day, one-way rental from Disney (on Dec. 6) to Tampa ( on Dec. 7). The best rate I could find is about $65 for a mid-size car; this is with Alamo using a AAA discount. I am frustrated that Alamo will rent me the same car from Tampa to Disney for 3 days for a total of $78, but then they want $65 for a single day rental to return back to Tampa. Some of the web site for Enterprise and Thrifty show better rates, but they either don't allow one-way rentals or they have a penalty that drives the rate up to around $70. Priceline doesn't allow one-way rentals.

Can anyone offer any help? Any travel agents out there, or maybe someone with discounts they can pass along?
