we want to do a coast-to-coast roadtrip this summer, beginning in May until mid-June, from DC to LA.
We are both 22, but do not have a car.
Yet, we were surprised by the high prices (2800$ incl. age-difference fee) for one-month (or rather 5 week) rentals at Hertz, Avis and co. We wanted to know if anyone knows a cheaper way to rent a car that we can pick up in DC and drop off in LA.
Also, we're open for suggestions re the route, we were thinking going through the South, Tennessee, Alabama, Texas etc.
Would appreciate any comments.
