Is there an option to add a corporate code? There probably is an underage fee did you put in your correct age?

I need a standard size rental car for about three months this summer -from June 12, 2014, to about September 12. I would like to pick it up at JFK or nearby, but I would be willing to travel for a much better rate. I will also need insurance because I do not have it. Are there any deals for long term rental or "mini lease"?
Thanks for any ideas/help. Dans Deals members are the greatest!

Thanks. But where do you see these prices? On their website? Are you using any coupons (if yes which?)? When I try, I'm getting quotes several hundreds of dollars more. And which class type of car? Thanks again for your help.

On chase I don't get these options.

I kinda figured someone smart like you would help me... that being said, a minivan may be ok so I'll "bother" you only if I have to.
Thanks anyway for volunteering your help.
