I know people have been asking about this before, but I haven't found any recent posts.
I want to rent a car in Los Angeles and drive to New York, starting May 25 and ending June 16. I currently live in NYC, would like to fly to LA, and then drive all the way back to NYC.
The problem as you might suspect is that every car rental company that I have found charge at least $1000 extra for leaving the car in NYC. So my question is: is there any way to work around this problem and avoid paying the drop-off fee? Considering that a 3 week rental in NYC would be about $1200, the extra $1000 fee is quite significant.
