Depends how far out you are willing to drive to pick it up. $1443 for a 7 pax SUV or $1643 for minivan.

A base fare of about $190 a week on a minivan in Brooklyn in the summer is a steal. Let us know when you find it, i'd do it too.

Drop Off Date & Time 4/9/19
Preferred Car Size: even compact will suffice
Age (if under 25): over 25

I also called Hertz to inquire about using points. They said it would cost 1100 / 1325 points + $32 taxes and fees. I don't have much use for my Hertz points but with those kind of fees, it's rediculous.
