Why did everyone stop posting their best quote? The whole point is not to waste someone who wants to help time and the original quote is needed to see if they can get a better price on the rental for you....

Im wondering if anyone out there would be interested in a one way rental from NYC to FLL or MIA.

Pickup location: LAX
Drop Off location: SFO
Pickup date & time: Nov 20, 8:00pm
Drop Off Date & Time: Nov 24, 8:00pm
Preferred Car Size: Convertible or Luxury
Age: over 35
Best quote: $110 for a midsize SUV from Alamo through Costcotravel.com. Its a good price but I assume liability insurance is extra and prefer a convertible or something nicer up to $250.

Thank you!!
