looking for rental to go from NY to FL Pesach Time (starting APR 3-5 ending APR 15-17)
need a Minivan size (>6 passengers) (unless 2 smaller cars is MUCH cheaper)

best i found sofar is 2-week rental from NY from Dollar with chabad Corp=$700ish
can i beat that? is there anywhere that 2 1-way rentals is cheaper? (from anything i saw even with some of the corp #s it still came out more either with drop fee or mileage charges (1200 miles each way or so)

any suggestions?

Hi,
I need a convertible in LAX today for one day (1/24/12-1/25/12). If there's a company that will give me that 4-hour window, that would be preferred. I have an Amex platinum if that does anything as far as getting upgrades, etc.. I'm not underage or anything else. So far, the best I found is $82 on hotwire.
Thanks!
