National coupon or with business code if you have. Drop off at airport or local Enterprise.
not understanding. Can you drop off a national car by any local enterprise? Ime, you can't. If renting from a local Enterprise using free days, how do you wave the ow fee?

I've done it, but it depends on location. You don't setup online, just bring it.
  You can drop at jfk if anywhere in NYC is ok.

Pickup location: LGA (or near LGA that can take a taxi from airport)
Drop Off location: Lakewood, NJ (or within 20 min drive)
Pickup date & time: Oct 24, 5:30 PM (landing at 4:30)
Drop Off Date & Time Oct 25, 5:30
Age (if under 25): 22 (I have USAA and AAA with ID...)
Best quote: $225+ from Hertz LGA

The Hertz locations near the airport (HLE, not the Hertz LGA) are a lot more reasonable price wise, but they close at 4 PM.
Avis and Budget were very cheap but are too far out from Lakewood.

Any suggestions?
