Pickup location: JFK
Drop Off location: JFK
Pickup date & time: Oct 9
Drop Off Date & Time Oct 22
Preferred Car Size: At least 7 seats + baggage
Age (if under 25): More
Best quote: $672


Lowest prices in general for that time where coming up around $800. Priceline non-refundable wanted around $750. I ended up reserving for $672 on Chase UR with Alamo. It seems taxes are all included. Anyone have experience to confirm that?

My reservation is for Mini DODGE G CARAVAN OR SIMILAR. We are seven passengers + at least a few suitcases. What model am I actually likely to get?

Thanks

I've been asked to drive Chosson Kallah. Want something nice, preferably not too high.. tried turo for a model x but minimum age 30. jaguar f-pace also did't work out... don't want to spend 1800 at exotic car company. 300-600 manageable.

I'm looking for a minivan in Cleveland from 9/12 to 10/17.
It's for a Bikur Cholim family from Israel, they don't have much $$.
Looking online, the prices range from $1300 and up.
Any better way to go about this?

Sounds like a great price. Just make sure to check if there is a limit on driving with a foreign license. Could be it's only 1 month.

Pickup location:  JFK or Long Island local
Drop Off location:  Same
Pickup date & time:  9/17/17
Drop Off Date & Time:  10/15/17
Preferred Car Size:  Mid-size
Age (if under 25):
Best quote:  $900 pre-paid

Dates are slightly flexible, looking for a one month rental.  Located in Long Island, willing to pick up somewhere local.  I remember someone once telling me Hertz had monthly rates around $650 but couldn't find anything.  Thanks.

Is the  $900 pre-paid that you found, just the base rate or after taxes?
Hertz President Circle!
And awesome!

After taxes, no extra insurance, etc
