if extending the rental in either direction makes it cheaper thats fine. also even if have to travel pretty far to pick up (few hour drive lets say) if it will save a lot of money i would def consider. cheapest i found so far is like 1800

From: MIA
To: MIA
Start dates: Mar 5/17 12:00AM (midnight) (Saturday Night/Sunday Morning of Mar 4/17)
End dates: Mar 10/17 4:00AM
Car Class:  Any
Renters age Over 25
Rental Company Any

Cheapest I found was $159 CDN All-In taxes and fees ($121 USD) for Economy from ACE Rent a Car (online reviews are not favourable for them). Trying to see if someone can find cheaper and preferably with another agency. Insurance is covered externally so it is not necessary when looking. Alternatively, I am willing to pick up from the Miami Beach (around 41st area) on Monday with the same drop off rules as mentioned above, however it would need to be at least $25 USD cheaper as I would have to factor in UBER fares.

I'm new to the forums, cant seem to find much on codes for getting rid of underage. Looking to rent from Boca Raton and return to orlando Mar 12-14. Under 25. Quoted $87 (before underage fee) and without insurance. How do I find a cheaper rate?
