Car rental advice

I am heading to WDW in Dec and am looking at renting a car. I typically use ME and Disney transportation so this is new for me.

I am searching for prices and the cheapest seem to be companies like Payless and Advantage. I have tried using discount codes for the major companies but these two still end up being cheaper.

When I travel with work, we have always rented through National so I have no experience with these companies. The price difference is significant and I'm thinking there must be a reason.

Anyone have any experience with these companies or any advice on getting a good deal?

National was a really nice combination of price and "niceness" last time we went. We payed like $20/day and got a very nice new car and good customer service.

I think both Payless and Advantage are off-site which is kind of a drag, but I haven't ever used either.

Sonny--Payless and Advantage are offsite, which can be a big drain of time as you'll have to take a shuttle bus from the airport to their parking lot (that's why they're cheaper).

This is from trusted resources on rental cars in Orlando:

"Walt Disney World
At Orlando International Airport (MCO) the in-terminal rental car agencies are Alamo, Avis, Budget, Dollar, National and L&M. All others are off-site at the airport, so you will have to take a shuttle. In addition, there are Alamo/National locations on-site at Walt Disney World, which is very convenient should you wish to keep your car for only part of the trip. There are also rental car locations at several of the hotels in the Downtown Disney area."

I've heard that people have really good luck with L&M, actually. They're not really a name brand, so they have to keep prices down, but folks seem to have good luck with them.

I've heard good things about L&M although I've never used them. Also never heard of them except in Orlando...
