Recently, I wrote about why AutoSlash is one of my go-to resources when I’m looking to rent a car. Well, it’s delivered again, this time with a great article and some good news: One-way car rentals from the northeastern United States to Florida are plummeting to as low as $5 a day.
As the article explains, many of the big car rental companies are offering massive discounts as a way of relocating their fleets to Florida and the southeastern U.S. for the cold winter months. As people in the northeast will be flocking south to escape the cold, demand for rental cars there will be sky-high. In the wintery northeast, it will drop, and so the rental companies must move their supplies to take advantage. With these great deals, the idea is that renters will do it for them.
Dollar, Hertz and Thrifty (all owned by Hertz Global Holdings) have already released their discounts, which are available at dates specific to the pick-up location. As written in the article: “The offer comes in stages as in years past. A renter can pick up an eligible car in Albany as early as Labor Day (September 4, 2017) to begin the journey south while a renter from Washington D.C. wouldn’t be able to pick up an eligible car until October 10, 2017; the high-demand season in Albany ends much earlier than the high-demand season in the D.C. region.”
