NY-Florida: free one way rental
« on: September 25, 2011, 10:49:08 AM »
As several car rental companies offering now super low rates for one way rentals from the NY-Metro area to Florida, I am trying to benefit somehow…

So I wanna take a car for about 3 weeks at a NY airport location and have it returned by someone who is traveling to Florida.

I will pay the total cost of the rental, but looking for someone who will drive out to Florida after, or in middle of Sukkahs. Should be 25 or+.

Trying my luck…

If I'm not mistaken, all of the offers are for a maximum of a week.
Otherwise, seems like a great idea...

Right, but there's one other rental company who doesn't have the week-max. limit. (ask me in private if interested.)

If its more than week ido they charge reg rate just for extra day or wont allow offer altogether?
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.
