Are there any rental companies  that just charge a fee instead of an inflated rate for 1 way rentals?

There are companies that differ depending on locations and times of rental that there will just be a drop charge and not a full one way fee......

Where did you get that price?

I'm seeing for $500 with Costco travel.

There's a good chance that there's better available. This is just an initial quote.

want to rent in EWR sunday and have the option to return to either ewr or jfk, somewhere this coming week or the next.
1) what company doesn't charge (too much) for airport change?
2) what company is flexible and still cheap on return dates.
