Costco membership? Costco Travel often has some of the better rates around, though one-way will add cost to any rental.

If a minivan is enough for 7+luggage, looks like Alamo is $124 US,

I just picked a random day of Friday next week at noon, drop off noon Saturday. Searching Port Everglades brought up the nearest locations. Going to Alamo.com for the same booking comes up $132.87 US (taxes in, apples:apples).

Beware ...your credit insurance may not cover the 7 passenger SUVS. - Working for a credit card company, car rental insurances are imo bad. make sure you know what you have e.g. Car value. TD I recall 50K CAD car value. I had a customer whose windshield cracked from a rock. We would not cover as a result of the value of the car.

Thanks Bean for the heads up,
I currently have TD First class infinite VISA, Amex SPG personal and Business cards and Rogers Master Card.
Ontop of my head dont know which one is suitable unless i dig into their welcome packages..
If you know or suggest the card suitable..really appreciate..
Also, i was thinking of calling my current car insurance for Liability coverage for rental cars down in states as i heard some upselling of their rental car insurance though.

Thanks Mike,
Just searched thru Costco and bit furthest Budget (free pickup) rental showing around $58 for Dec 10 pickup and Dec11 drop at MIA around 9am.
Unfortunately, dont have Costco membership, hence have to start searching for coupon codes to bring it down.
Also, read somewhere that auto slash registration is beneficial which will get better deals...
