Planning a road trip for summer 2022 starting/ending at any of LAS/LAX/SFO/PHX/DEN
I recall getting a great deal on a one-way rental in southwest US on a minivan, years ago, presumably because direction of one-way was helpful to rental car company, (reverse direction was much more expensive) but I don't recall details
Which directions usually offer lowest rates for one way rental.
I have status with Hertz.

I wouldn't advise it, I have no personal experience using it but have heard to stay away.

Ppl rent from these cheap companies every day but there's too many stories of thing like them not accepting your personal or credit card insurance and requiring to purchase expensive insurance from them

Can those be strung together?
Can they book the AWD specific catagory?
But that's still over $700 a week.
