My favorite mini-van story is a ski trip to CO when I rented a mini-van. DGS was about 4. On the last day, all the skiiers went to the slopes for a half day, and the rest of us stayed at the cabin to finish the work. Went to the slopes to pick up DGS and DS at noon. They get in, and I'm still in the driver's seat. DGS says, "Daddy, when will YOU get to drive." DS = Well, I'll drive another time. DGS "Oh, so Baba gets to drive now and you get to drive the cool car." Just in case you think they don't notice!! LOL

Thank you for coming back to tell us 4sharie. I've often wonder if people ever get the car they think they will. Maybe the trick is to get them out of the airport.

Yes, totally worth it! Funny... we passed so many Impalas and made so many "what if" comments! It all worked out, even if we are broke now from this trip. haha

Yeah, mini-vans, not so "cool" but surprised a 4 yr old would pick up on that!

Bugs me when people don't report back. On the rare occasion I have something to offer, it's always nice to know how things end up turning out.

You did good. You asked, and you "received". For your big kids, you really DID do GOOD. Couple hundred dollars--lots of comfort!!
As for my 4 yo DGS, his dad had just gotten a "cute car"--a Cooper, and believe me, those little ones notice. Maybe yours didn't say anything, but grandmothers have the "ear"! LOL

Wow. Just reading up. How did you manage to get a minivan rental for 17 days for $617 at the Denver airport? Please, I need tips! Thanks.

The OP might see your post --but she hasn't posted on Fodors since last September.

This is how she did it:

"Price: yes, they are both great rates! I've been checking prices on Expedia about 5-10 times a day, every day, for about 4 months. Most days nothing moves, but every 2-3 weeks something will drop for few hours, sometimes even a day. Alamo offers an additional 10% off for being an "Alamo Insider" so between the stalking and the extra 10%, we've scored deals!"

Check Costco Travel rental cars for your dates. For Denver, be sure to check the distance over 15 miles because the airport is a bit away. Choose the airport rental agencies when the options come up.
